The Importance of Serialization Standards

In today’s global serialization landscape, pharmaceutical organizations must be able to connect with many networks and trading partners that use disparate inbound and outbound data transmission formats and protocols. To say this can make partner integrations challenging is an understatement.

In the pharma industry, time is money. Delayed deployments and postponed launches of a serialized product can result in the loss of thousands—even millions—of dollars.

To accommodate the huge variety of integration options, OPTEL’s flexible Verify Platform allows brand owners and CMOs/CPOs to rapidly connect to any pharmaceutical trading partner on any network while decreasing implementation times and offering value-added business benefits beyond regulatory compliance.

OPTEL’s solution architects built the platform based on GS1’s global standards, with the capability to support all versions of EPCIS. The mature platform can handle any type of altered, extended or proprietary messaging format, such as TraceLink and SAP, as well as any of the common system-to-system integration protocols, such as RESTful APIs, SOAP and AS2.

Whether you are thinking about changing serialization providers or looking for your first serialization and traceability solution, you will want to easily establish reliable partner connections. You’ll need a flexible serialization solution that has the technical capabilities, features and functionality to ensure you meet regulatory compliance mandates while also gaining value-added business intelligence and supply chain visibility. Examples include:

  • Evaluate line/worker utilization, productivity and efficiency
  • Enable full reconciliation
  • Address inventory concerns
  • Assess capacity and align production
  • Review dwell times and receive alerts about products nearing expiration
  • Monitor usage of distribution channels
  • Leverage supply chain maps and serialization data to improve forecasting ability by better managing capacity or altering production schedules
