Adept Packaging Makes Serialization Programs Successful

Serialization & Technology Services

Serialization and Traceability are becoming increasingly prevalent in the Pharmaceutical, Medical Device and most recently, Food, Beverage and CPG industries. The main drivers, currently for Pharmaceutical companies are the global Serialization mandates and the strict timelines. However, compliance is not the only driver for Traceability. Across industries, companies are embracing Traceability for its value in securing the supply chain, reducing counterfeit and improving patient and consumer safety.

At Adept Packaging, we offer managed services for Serialization that encompass four major areas to ensure compliance with these regulations:

Training: Serialization and Traceability regulations impact almost all of Adept Packaging clients’ business processes. Adept Packaging offers training so clients can stay apprised of ever-changing regulations, learn the details of Serialization standards, and fully understand the impact of Serialization on their processes and systems. This training follows a modular, standardized, approach, which can be delivered with agility to ensure Adept Packaging clients are prepared to manage the significant investment in time and money to achieve compliance.

Strategy: Because of the pervasive nature of Serialization regulatory requirements, Adept Packaging has developed a proven, comprehensive strategy to drive compliance. Adept Packaging assists organizations with the development of a Serialization compliance strategy that encompasses objectives, resources, planning and optional business case opportunities.

Project Management: Serialization programs require effective coordination of internal and external resources in addition to hardware and software suppliers. Adept Packaging engineers and project managers provide the right combination of Serialization subject matter expertise and project management skills to ensure your investment in compliance is successful.

Implementation Support: Today’s healthcare companies are resource constrained. This impact to businesses is typically incremental to allocations and budgets. It can be costly to hire full-time Serialization specialists and such skills are hard to find in the market.
