Systech to integrate serialisation expertise with Axway’s track and trace system

25 March 2009

Axway, a provider of multi-enterprise solutions and infrastructure, and Systech International, producer of packaging execution systems (PES) for the pharmaceutical industry, will partner to offer integrated solutions to ensure customer readiness for upcoming European and Turkish regulatory compliance.

Together, Axway and Systech will provide a complementary solution that addresses brand protection, patient safety, product traceability, and supply chain integrity for pharmaceutical products.

Systech manages serialisation in packaging while Axway manages the process-aligning serialised packaging data with business and supply chain data to enable end-to-end visibility and traceability. By combining Systech’s serialisation expertise with Axway’s advanced track & trace capabilities, manufacturers will be equipped to handle forthcoming compliance demands, achieve operating efficiencies and balance partner and customer relationships.

“Axway and Systech are deploying solutions for mutual customers,” said Bruce Harder, director of business development and marketing, Systech International. “Together, we are addressing the diverse needs of companies facing regulatory compliance, brand integrity, and other issues. Manufacturers can benefit from this relationship as they roll out their compliance strategies on a global basis.”

Systech provides the foundation of unique item-level serialisation and aggregation of serial numbers to packaging units. Systech’s software manages the writing, reading, and printing of serial numbers at the line level and controls the provisioning of serial numbers within the packaging environment. Packagers using Systech’s solutions can meet current regulatory compliance demands, such as France’s CIP 13, while laying the foundation to meet future serialisation regulations.

Axway’s healthcare supply chain solutions help ensure regulatory compliance and patient safety. To address global serialisation, Axway Track & Trace collects and manages serialised product data throughout the supply chain and links it to master data to enable viewing of the entire product lifecycle. The solution includes product authentication, counterfeit and diversion detection, global regulatory compliance, recall management, data integrity assurance capabilities, and links physical and financial supply chains.

“In the wake of new regulatory compliance, pharmaceutical companies worldwide need to be more agile and adaptable, yet steadfast in their serialisation and patient safety policies,” said Sia Zadeh, director of business development at Axway. “By integrating their products, Axway and Systech provide advanced supply chain solutions to make this possible.”
