TraceLink Inc., a track and trace network for connecting the life sciences supply chain and eliminating counterfeit prescription drugs from the global marketplace, announced an agreement with Advanco to resell ARC Suite software that integrates packaging lines and enterprise serialization repositories.
The agreement with Advanco, an international provider of integrations for item level serialization, will provide pharmaceutical and contract manufacturing companies with competitive pricing and purchasing flexibility to utilize multiple line management systems while simplifying integration with the TraceLink Life Sciences Cloud at the enterprise and network level for serialization.
As a provider for enterprise and network system Levels 4 and 5, TraceLink will offer the Advanco ARC Suite software to customers looking for a consistent global site server solution that is independent of the Line Management System (LMS). ARC Suite will streamline their integration across all LMS solutions and remove any restrictions associated with purchasing from multiple line vendors resulting from implementing a proprietary Site Server.
This simplified, interoperable approach through TraceLink and Advanco will allow manufacturers to leverage any combination of line management solutions while improving procurement and deployment flexibility.
“Pharmaceutical and contract manufacturers continue to face a number of challenges in synchronizing multiple interconnected packaging levels in order to comply with serialization regulations,” said Shabbir Dahod, president and CEO of TraceLink. “TraceLink and Advanco recognized the need to provide a flexible option for the industry to cut down on time-consuming and costly integrations between line management and enterprise systems and efficiently comply with serialization regulations.
“TraceLink is partnering with the industry’s leading companies, such as Advanco, to deliver flexible, scalable solutions, quality implementation services and proven production integrations to its customers,” Dahod added. “These partnerships supplement our ongoing and active involvement with interoperability standards and industry workgroups such as Open-SCS and GS1.”
Olgun Yenersoy, founder and CEO of Advanco said, “The TraceLink and Advanco integration offers true simplicity in system integration and will help facilitate smoother deployment of serialization solutions for all packaging levels. We look forward to continuing this partnership with TraceLink and working collaboratively to help the industry achieve compliance in the EU, U.S. and other global markets.”
