About company

Beckman Coulter, in its more than 80-year history, has helped healthcare and laboratory professionals, pharmaceutical and biotechnology companies, universities, medical schools and research institutions around the world to simplify, automate and innovate complex biomedical testing.

An operating company of Danaher Corporation since 2011, Beckman Coulter is headquartered in Brea, California, with more than 11,000 employees worldwide.

Key Challenges

Beckman Coulter currently uses Excel AFP (Authorization for Payment) forms, which are printed, signed by authorized individuals, and sent for payment. In some cases (off-site), employees may send scans of the AFP form to the finance department for payment.

Digging deeper into EDI solutions, employees make payments in Diadoc for clients who use the digital workflow format without having to fill out an Excel AFP form.

During the COVID-19 pandemic, Beckman Coulter employees convert the Excel AFP form to electronic format and sign it via email. Due to the organization's strategic compliance with the digital workflow format and some limitations, company representatives decided to abandon document approval in Diadoc and switch to a single payment approval channel based on Microsoft SharePoint and Microsoft Power Platform with subsequent integration into 1C.


To implement this task, iSystemz specialists designed a solution based on Microsoft 365 product ecosystem and Microsoft Power Platform technology. Within the framework of the project, a separate Power Apps application with its own interface was created. The structure of Microsoft SharePoint Online lists was used as the data storage. For data processing and implementation of business processes Power Automate streams are used.

One of the main advantages of the solution is building the system on the basis of standard Microsoft 365 licenses without using premium subscriptions. Also one of the advantages is connection of the system to the multilevel structure of directories located at different sites of the company.

The plans for joint development of the project include integration of approved payments into 1C with the formation of a payment document, sending payment status from 1C to the application, as well as integration of the application with EDI.
