Adents, a leading provider of versatile and easily deployable serialization and track & trace software solutions, will host a ‘World Café’ roundtable at the Pharma TRACKTS! Serialization Conference in Berlin, September 28-29 at the Maritime proArte Hotel.
Led by Christophe Carissimo, Professional Services Director EMEA for Adents, the discussion will address the data management challenges faced by pharma manufacturers, CMOs and contract packagers when implementing serialization solutions.
Titled Ensuring Seamless Management, Sharing & Reporting of Serialization Data, the roundtable will explore the types of enterprise (Level 4) solution issues whose complexities can serve as confusing roadblocks to optimized incorporation. Sub-topics include:
The various uses of Cloud serialization and track & trace systems;
Ensuring connectivity with multiple trading partners, and facilitating on-boarding;
The different types of data and formats that must be handled, now and in the future;
Future-proofing serialization systems against shifting regulations and business needs; and
Considerations for ensuring security.
For pharma companies implementing serialization solutions to comply with looming regulations, two of the most common concerns are scalability and beyond-compliance usefulness. Scalability has emerged as an issue due to the ever-evolving, even volatile nature of the international track & trace regulatory landscape; considering this, the more flexible a solution is to adapt to shifting or phased-in mandates, the better.
Beyond-compliance usefulness refers to a serialization solution’s ability to bring value-added benefits to pharma manufacturers, particularly in utilizing the troves of generated data to improve production efficiency, decrease line downtime, and manage personnel.
