User Reviews of PharmaSuite

Submitted on March 31st, 2022 by Anonymous

One of the most difficult to deploy MES/MOM systems with weak and expensive EU support.

The Good…

Can be a robust system, if once you are able to deploy the elements of system you need.

The Bad…

Still no available validate cloud capable version released. RA has acquired Plex MES aiming to have this option.
