Why Next-Gen eBR and eDHR? Why Now?
Traditional MES systems for Life Sciences were built for stability and meant to last, but they fail to keep up with the fast-paced, complex market demands and disruptions of today. Here's what we hear about legacy MESs and paper-based processes:
Awful User Experiences
Unintuitive interfaces, paper documents, separate SOP binders and ERP systems are slowing down operators and product release.
Rigid and Slow
Out-of-the-box MES modules work great until companies need to bend their workflows to the limitations of their MES.
Customizing an MES takes months to build and even longer to validate. Traditional MES restricts a company’s ability to be agile and scale.
Augment your frontline workforce
Ensure tasks are completed and documented correctly the first time with combined digital work instructions data collection. Connect your scales, scanners, sensors and more to Tulip to streamline data capture, enabling your operators to save time and minimize transcription errors.
Accelerate batch releases with quality-control at every step of the production process
Right-the-first-time eBR and eDHR means fewer errors and real-time triggered alerts ensure exceptions and non-conformances are identified and reviewed sooner. Data can be viewed in real-time and there is end-to-end traceability.
Put your data to work and gain real-time production visibility.
Dashboards with built-in analytics are critical to understanding the health of your operations. Gain insights and make decisions based on data in real-time.

Is Tulip a Next-Gen MES? No, it is a platform that can do much more.
Reduce the paperwork and burden of compliance with apps that standardize audit procedures, track progress, and promote accountability. Access information in logbooks remotely and securely.
Weigh & Dispense
Connect your scales to a Tulip app to automatically record the weight and eliminate the chance for error in transcribing data. Information such as user badge ID, batch number, and electronic signatures are recorded in an electronic record to form an audit trail.
Combine dynamic work instructions, image capture, and electronic signatures to ensure your production line is clear of obstruction, create an audit trail, and release batches faster.
Digital Work Instructions
Error-proof tasks with a single, intuitive workflow with dynamic work instructions, connections to external systems, edge connectivity, and cameras.
Order & Material Tracking
Track information for jobs, work orders, BOMs. Scheduling orders and optimizing flow. Manage goods receipt, warehousing, and final dispatch.
Genealogy and Traceability
Record information at steps throughout the process. Create your electronic history records for products and batches.
Quality & Security Systems
Execute against the quality management systems. Track and mitigate deviations and exceptions.
Whether you’re training a new employee or introducing a process, product, or tool, build a firm foundation for your team with intuitive and effective training apps.
