Comac Medical and Upnetix Receive Award in the Annual Competition “IT project of 2016”

21 Feb 2017

In 2016 Upnetix and Comac Medical joined forces in a partnership, which brought them the much prestigious award “IT project of 2016” in the Corporate Sector – a competition organized by Computerworld Bulgaria magazine and supported by DSK Bank.

The event, held for a consecutive thirteenth year, included strong competition from 21 other projects of companies, enterprises and institutions in Bulgaria. Besides the award for “IT project of 2016” in the Corporate Sector, Comac Medical and Upnetix also received a diploma in the subcategory “Medium and small enterprises”.


Comac Medical is the largest Bulgarian clinical research company that operates in 21 countries in Europe, covering a population of over 215 million people. Because of the highly specialized and regulated industry, they initiated a mutually beneficial collaboration with Upnetix to develop and implement a software solution to optimize the management of their business processes. That is how the ERP system “Pathways” was born with the sole purpose of addressing issues like risk of errors in data processing, controlling and monitoring of multilateral activities and high consumption of resources.


The task was challenging, but the Upnetix team delivered. Some of "Pathways" key features are:


  • Modular business architecture
  • Separation of the duties on the various levels of management
  • Separation of roles in activities related to clinical trials
  • High level of security
  • Manage schedules and trainings
  • Highest possible granularity of data access configuration
  • Specific UX for optimal and intuitive performance of daily tasks
  • Manage the inventory of the devices
  • Specialized search functionality to filter data on selected parameters
  • Common business logic layer, user interface and database
  • Manage the schedule for the preventive maintenance of the devices


The implemented system helped Comac Medical optimize its business performance processes by 40%, shrink its paperwork by 20%, increase its ability to scale more clients and many others. But the biggest reward for both Upnetix and our client was the appreciation we received, synthesized in the words of Mrs. Monika Panayotova, representative of Comac Medical, with which she thanked the organizers for the high distinction:


“I believe that with such joint projects between Bulgarian companies we demonstrate that it is possible to overcome existing stereotypes like: * there is no connection between science, innovation and business in Bulgaria; *the talents of Bulgaria are outside its borders; * Bulgarians cannot work as a team*. The interaction between Bulgarian companies in key sectors such as healthcare and information technology is essential for improving the lives and the health of the citizens and for positioning the country in the global contest.”
