Case Study | Rhythm Pharmaceuticals

Rhythm Pharmaceuticals implements Dynamics 365


Early stage pharmaceutical company wanted a solution that would scale as it grew. 
Rhythm Pharmaceuticals implemented Dynamics 365 Finance and Operations.
  • D365 Finance
  • Managed Services
  • D365 Supply Chain Management
  • Life Sciences


A small rare disease pharmaceutical company grew from 10 to 53 employees, and was concerned about being limited by technology. 

Rapid deployment demands made the combination of RSM and Microsoft a clear win for Rhythm

The Dynamics platform opens the door to many possibilities as the business grows

With the right technology in place, the late-stage biopharma company can focus on developing and commercializing therapies 

Path to success

With extensive experience with life sciences companies, RSM became Rhythm's trusted ERP implementation partner, and helped them take their business to the next level.

Coming off of QuickBooks it was important to manage the budget, setup projects and getting information in a timely fashion. It is important as an early stage pharmaceutical company to squeeze out as much as they can until they start recognizing revenue.


RSM built a strong technology foundation with an ERP system that can act as the system or record and support the company’s growth from being a small business to the middle market, and even larger.

With 10 weeks to go live, RSM did a lot of the upfront work through its Rapid Verification Model (RVM)

The RSM team came in with a real perspective of the user. While so much of the need for a system was for books and records, the real time and care was associated with making sure there was user acceptance of the purchase to pay cycle where most of the employees have to interface in one way or another.

With a streamlined setup process, familiar, easy-to-integrate apps and intuitive tools, Microsoft Dynamics 365 set Rhythm up for success—both in the present and as they grow.

“We have a solution we’ll be able to use when we’re middle market or even a much larger company” Said Hulburt.

"We had 10 weeks to get everything configured
tested and go live.I was quite pleased how easy and
smooth it went.
