Effective drug serialization to ensure global compliance and patient safety
Effective drug serialization to ensure global compliance and patient safety
SAP Advanced Track and Trace for Pharmaceuticals (SAP ATTP) is an innovative serial number management solution built for pharmaceutical companies to label and track products with serial numbers. It minimizes the costs of maintaining compliance and supports a secure supply chain.
Internationally governments are increasingly enacting legislation to combat the falsification of drugs. Compliance with these complex legislative systems requires efficient serialization of drugs with subsequent reporting to governmental and institutional databases, and a secure data flow with supply chain partners.
To achieve compliance, pharmaceutical companies must maintain a well managed serialization repository, which can handle a high data volume, integrate with Master Data and Business Transactions and provide internationally compliant reporting.
NTT DATA Business Solutions provides the SAP Advanced Track and Trace solution for Pharmaceuticals and Life Sciences organizations globally, making serialization secure.
SAP Advanced Track and Trace encompasses a series of features that provide essential infrastructure for pharmaceutical compliance. Your business needs these to safeguard its processes.
Our SAP ATTP integration enables pharmaceutical manufacturers to ensure uniquely identifiable packaging. This facilitates traceability, prevents counterfeiting and enhances patient safety.
The solution assists manufacturers in printing unique data elements in 2D barcode and human readable format for packaging, and to report serialization data to relevant regulatory bodies and supply chain partners.
Pharmaceutical companies manufacturing prescriptive drugs face multiple consistent challenges which SAP ATTP helps handle efficiently:
Implementation of SAP ATTP can be undertaken in a cost-effective manner with tailored training resources. It is far more efficient than a non-SAP (cloud) product, with intuitive user features.
SAP ATTP shares several common functionalities with SAP ERP, such as authorization management. SAP ATTP and SAP ERP also share a native integration concept. Master data and transactional data are integrated with out-of-the-box functionality. This is not possible with non-SAP products, which require custom interface development.
Our Warehouse Integration Accelerator provides out-of-the-box enhancements and technical building blocks to simplify and accelerate the implementation of integrated serialization processes in SAP’s WM and EWM solutions.
Our add-on provides an extensive framework to integrate a range of ATTP scanning protocols, such as decommissioning, loading and repacking. It also provides numerous highly efficient tools which assist in other serialization related activities, such as receiving serialized materials from intercompany plants and verifying returned items.
