24 Nov, 2022

Manchester, UK – 22 November, 2022

Merit Solutions and HSO UK announced a partnership today to help life science organisations automate and scale their operations, meet regulatory compliance, and improve decision-making across the business. As a key component of the partnership, HSO will license and deliver Merit for Life Science, an industry-first solution that enhances the key capabilities of Microsoft Dynamics 365 to ensure on-going FDA compliance, scalability and growth.

“The world of life sciences is constantly evolving as organisations look to pivot from being product only focused to developing a hybrid product/service approach. Operating in a landscape of more partnerships and collaboration, an environment of growth where investment is supporting M&A activities, carve outs and new licensing deals, etc. makes for an incredibly dynamic sector. Being able to operate at speed and meet the strict regulatory standards applicable, means organisations need a partner and a solution that delivers value. As a result of HSO’s partnership with Merit Solutions, we can now deliver a complete solution stack to improve results across the value chain.” says HSO Manufacturing Industry Director, Matt Birtwistle.

With Merit for Life Science and Microsoft, HSO now offers an industry-focused technology platform with the applications needed to meet the unique needs of biotechnology and medical device companies.  Life science organisations across the UK can now benefit from secure, cloud-based solutions that improve procurement, production, inventory/warehousing and quality control, enabling them to deliver more innovative, effective and safer products to market.

“We’re excited to partner with HSO UK. They have an impeccable history of satisfying customers and building a strong, customer-focused, team.” Said Bill Burke, CEO Merit Solutions “With their deep industry-specific focus and strong partnership with Microsoft, they have the capabilities and team to help ensure long-term life science customer success.”
