Optel Vision Launches Open SiteMaster 2.0

Quebec City, July 26, 2016 — Member of Optel Group, Optel Vision, a leading provider of inspection and serialization systems for the global pharmaceutical industry, announced today the release of version 2.0 of its Open SiteMaster™ site server software.

Designing and manufacturing inspection systems since 1989 and pioneering the development of serialization solutions since the beginning of the traceability initiative, Optel Vision is now bringing its renowned savoir-faire to the plant level (also known as L3).

Open SiteMaster (OSM) is an L3 server software with a web-based user and machine interface, covering all aspects of Track & Trace and aggregation, while streamlining communications between serialization-related systems. The OSM architecture is specially designed to adapt to customer-specific business logic and IT environments, and evolve as needed.

OSM 2.0 was meticulously fine-tuned in close collaboration with several pharma and contract packers of various sizes. “The introduction of OSM 2.0 is a real success story for Optel Vision, as it’s already being integrated into dozens of multi-line serialization and aggregation projects in the US and Europe,”
said Etienne Gagnon, President of Optel Vision. “Our customers can now not only benefit from our trusted core expertise at the line level, but they can also leverage Optel Vision’s deep know-how when it comes to Track & Trace system connectivity with Level 4 solutions,” added Mr. Gagnon.

Streamlined Communications between Systems

Acting as a hub that coordinates actions between lines, plant and corporate, OSM gathers data from the packaging lines (L2) and communicates information through the existing ERP or MES (L3) and up to the corporate level (L4), getting serial numbers and sending back EPCIS reports ─ all through a central configuration and monitoring point.

Cutting-Edge Plant-Level Serialization Capabilities

Open SiteMaster easily manages all aspects of serialization/aggregation, obtaining process orders and serial numbers from official sources and taking charge of production ─ including rework ─ at the plant level. OSM can allocate instructions and data to packaging lines as planned and specified by production managers and packaging line engineers to provide ultimate efficiency. Among other valuable functionalities, OSM offers configurable batch flows, advanced serial number management and GS1-compliant serialization data handling.

Powerful Architecture for Customizable Agility and Data Prowess   

In addition to its core industry-specific expertise and superior overall functionalities, OSM includes open, customizable scripts providing maximum flexibility and customization. This unique feature gives OSM the extended capability of running a group of scripts that can be adapted or created to fit customers’ particular business logic and connect with most any IT environment.

Expandable and Modular Technology

OSM also allows customers to go beyond plant packaging lines and easily evolve in the future should they wish to add to their serialization process. As their needs grow, optional modules can be integrated to support serialization/aggregation in areas such as the palletizing room and the warehouse.
