Qualanex acts as the returns department for some of the world’s largest pharmaceutical manufacturers. It handles the complex process of collecting expired drugs from retailer shelves, crediting retailers, debiting manufacturers, and ensuring that drugs are securely picked up and destroyed—and the whole process documented. It uses electronic data interchange (EDI) to track all the touchpoints and uses Microsoft Azure Logic Apps to choreograph EDI in the cloud. By moving EDI to Azure, Qualanex sets up EDI transactions in days versus weeks and resolves errors in minutes versus days, which saves pharmaceutical companies millions of dollars annually in erroneous return charges. With complete control over the EDI process, Qualanex has better insight into EDI fees and can better construct tailored solutions for customers.
