Dinaledi Medical was established in 2006 in Johannesburg, South Africa to meet the needs of healthcare practitioners, service providers, and patients, supplying products such as absorbable and nonabsorbable sutures, surgical mesh, and bone wax.
Dinaledi Medical’s experienced management and sales representatives have been trained over many years by Johnson & Johnson (Pty) Ltd., thus producing a staff that is well positioned to meet industry demands. A large number of its personnel has international experience and is certified within their fields of expertise to provide training to various healthcare practitioners.
Dinadeli Medical replaced an inadequate sales tracking and management system with Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne applications to enhance supply chain efficiency and provide better control over pricing, resulting in lower logistics costs, higher profitability, and improved cash flow.
Dinaledi Medical chose Oracle's JD Edwards EnterpriseOne 9.0 primarily based on the strength of its ability to address the company's specific medical device distribution business needs, as well as its executive team’s prior experience and satisfaction with the system.
“JD Edwards EnterpriseOne fits our business requirements and business model perfectly,” said Chris Grobler, IT and operations, Dinaledi Medical. “We were looking for a scalable, cost-effective solution that we could implement quickly and easily, and Oracle’s JD Edwards EnterpriseOne fit the bill.”
The implementation was managed by Alliance ERP Consulting, an Oracle Accelerate solution provider with extensive experience implementing JD Edwards EnterpriseOne modules for manufacturing, planning and execution, plant and equipment, distribution, and financial management.
“Alliance ERP Consulting displayed an in-depth understanding of our business requirements and provided consultants that have superior JD Edwards EnterpriseOne knowledge,” Grobler said.
