SAP ATTP for Pharmaceuticals

Effective drug serialization to ensure global compliance and patient safety

Secure and Efficient Drug Serialization with SAP ATTP

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.


Why SAP ATTP Is Important for Your Business

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.

Key features:

  • Regulatory reporting interfaces & content
  • The only out-of-the-box ERP integration solution on the market
  • 21CFR Part 11 / EU Annex 11 Compliance

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.


The Benefits of SAP ATTP

Pharmaceutical companies manufacturing prescriptive drugs face multiple consistent challenges which SAP ATTP helps handle efficiently:

  • Staying compliant in serialization
  • Efficiently managing drug serialization numbers
  • Integrating serialization into logistics and warehouse processes and systems
  • Exchanging serialization data with business partners
  • Robustly manage increasing data volumes as a result of serialization

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.

The only solution capable of fully integrating serialization processes into your existing business protocols
