2017 Winner Profile

Lannett Company, Inc.

Project Description:
After nine consecutive quarters of record net sales, pharmaceutical firm Lannett Company Inc. realized its manual-based testing processes was unable to keep up with this record growth. With its new acquisitions and intricate business processes, Lannett could no longer afford the time and resources needed to perform regression testing the old-fashioned way. In preparation for a major SAP upgrade and the ultimate integration of two core business acquisitions into its SAP environment, Lannett turned to high-speed business process testing to ensure every core process worked, end-to-end, across the SAP ecosystem. In a dramatic shift from manual testing to automation, Lannett utilized intelligent automation from Worksoft to accelerate its digital transformation. Leveraging digital age technology, Lannett shortened project timelines, reduced costs, and improved overall business process quality. The company automated 90 percent of its business process testing, reduced production defects by 60 percent and achieved a 40 percent cycle time savings per project.
