About us

Br.) has been supporting Life Sciences companies worldwide in the implementation of SAP solutions, quality management and GxP-compliant validation since 1996. The DHC method is a key success factor in more than 500 successful projects.

The know-how of the well-qualified DHC consultants is characterized by a combination of process and industry knowledge in connection with excellent IT knowledge taking into account compliance requirements.

As an SAP partner, we use SAP technology to implement processes in our companies. DHC Best Practice has developed solutions and templates based on this technology. 

This leads to a significant acceleration and quality improvement in projects. The conception and implementation of our projects is process-oriented in order to be able to guarantee a maximum of economic benefit.

In order to meet the high requirements of the core processes in the Life Sciences (e.g. in quality and IT management as well as in the logistics of pharmaceutical companies) and the supporting IT systems, we developed our own innovative solution approaches right from the beginning. Today, we also use this experience and solution competence successfully in other industries, such as the manufacturing or automotive industry.

As a consulting company, we care about one thing in particular
