FOLSOM, Calif., Oct. 2, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- International Business Systems (IBS), a leading global integrated ERP and supply chain provider, today announced Sunset Pharmaceuticals, a primary wholesaler of pharmaceutical and medical supplies, has selected IBS Enterprise to support its business expansion in small-to-medium-size medical surgery markets.

Sunset Pharmaceuticals is a rapidly growing pharmaceutical distributor, serving medical facilities since 2005. As the company has expanded, concerns over compliance with newly passed Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) requirements have caused Sunset to investigate pharma-specific enterprise resource planning (ERP) solutions to support its growing operations, online presence and professional image.

"After a two-year search, we are pleased to announce that Sunset will be moving forward with IBS Business Suite 2015, Enterprise for Pharma as our solution of choice," said Cody Cullen, Sunset Pharmaceuticals CFO. "IBS' reputation in the pharma industry, ability to demonstrate a full suite of applications, particularly its IBS NetStore ecommerce solution, and mature cloud capabilities were deciding factors. We were impressed at every stage."

Sunset Pharmaceuticals is implementing IBS Business Suite 2015, IBS NetStore, IBS Integrator system integration and data management solution, and Adobe LiveCycle ES4 Forms & Output component. The Mesa Group, an IBS supply chain management and enterprise consulting partner, will assist on the implementation. The Mesa group has over 20 years of experience implementing, training and supporting IBS Enterprise.

"Sunset Pharmaceutical made an aggressive business decision by selecting IBS Business Suite as its software solution to assist its outstanding growth by providing tools that will allow it to compete with larger organizations," said Jim Smith, The Mesa Group President. "The Senior Management is fully engaged in the implementation process, which will assist in assuring the product is configured to meet its growing needs, including the tracking and reporting that is prevalent in its industry. We are pleased they selected us as their service partner."

"Our offering is unique in the industry, with a truly integrated ERP and S&OP solution," said Michael O'Brien, IBS Vice President of Sales. "The pharmaceutical market is also a specialty for us, since our software is uniquely designed to handle the complexity and traceability issues the industry requires. During demonstrations with Sunset Pharmaceuticals, it was clear that our product could deliver the immediate impact and ongoing scalability needed to drive its growth plans far into the future. We are excited to have them as a customer."
