Successfully fast-track lab and production

Opcenter Execution Pharma enables more than paperless production: It’s the constantly evolving digital platform that helps pharmaceutical companies to develop and produce new drugs and vaccines faster than ever.

Time is precious and quality is essential

The orchestration of development and production in the pharmaceutical industry requires a powerful manufacturing execution system (MES). Opcenter Execution Pharma seamlessly integrates MES functionality, automation, and enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems. It enables you to streamline processes and operations in full compliance with regulations thanks to complete paperless manufacturing and full electronic batch recording. In short: It’s the decisive tool for greater competitiveness.

Speed up operations through paperless manufacturing and eBR apps

Faced with growing cost pressures, regulatory, safety guidelines and diverse product portfolios, pharmaceutical manufacturers are continuously looking for ways to improve production processes.


Our proven electronic batch record solution enables completely paperless manufacturing within regulated processes - and supports from the design of the batch record to the release of the batch report.


Design, execute, and review along the entire lifecycle

Design, guide, control and review the product and production lifecycles by providing an electronic batch record that precisely details how a drug has been produced as required by FDA, CFDA and European regulatory bodies.

Providing eBR as a managed service

The goal for future releases of our eBR Apps Suite is to provide eBR services and apps. We want to make the deployment of a paperless batch record system more affordable through cloud-based infrastructure. Moreover, we’re going to enable you to build new apps with a low-code application development platform.

Enabling the next generation of paperless manufacturing

Our eBR App Suite enables batch review on mobile devices like smart phones and tablets, so you can receive batch information, record manufacturing tasks, and build equipment records. You can use biometric authentication, which is secured by centralized user management and compatibility with General Data Protection Regulations. The eBR App Suite consists of three distinct apps: eBatch Operator for reconciliation, compounding and equipment management; eBatch Reviewer to review batches directly on mobile devices in real-time; and eLogbook Manager to easily access logbooks from anywhere. The Suite lets you improve quality and reduces time to react after a deviation, enables remote shift management and control, enhances key user interaction, reduces cost of software ownership, and facilitates review by exception, focusing on relevant data only.
