The Pharmaceutical Industry is experiencing major transformations. Regulations around the world are being put in place to avoid counterfeiting, which imply serialization at different packaging levels.
Data storage and connectivity are crucial for Successful Serialization Implementation. Main ERP system vendors are ready to integrate serialization modules to help pharmaceutical manufacturers comply with anti-counterfeiting laws. However, CMO’s particular situations in which they have to connect with multiple companies with different systems add important challenges to the equation.
The second live webinar, IT and Connectivity Really Matter, from the series Successful Serialization Implementation, by Optel Vision and Healthcare Packaging, will address effective solutions to these particular challenges through a dynamic conversation between industry experts Jim Chrzan of Healthcare Packaging, Chief Technology Officer Jean Pierre Allard from Optel Vision, and Director, Packaging, Aladin Alkhawam from Par Pharmaceutical.
