Tracking serialized and non-serialized product from packaging through distribution
Acsis delivers a proven, end-to-end solution that permits pharmaceutical companies to balance serialized and non-serialized items from packaging through distribution. With Acsis, you can choose the functionality you need, whether you want to serialize your packaging lines or track product through the whole distribution process.
How does Acsis do the needful?
By applying and capturing serialization data at the unit, bundle, carton and pallet levels, yielding the data necessary for compliance with government mandates and regulations, such as the DSCSA.
With a single, consistent deployment for both Acsis solutions and proven serialization technologies so you can quickly and easily modify present packaging lines to serialize at the product level.
Through persistent integration with enterprise systems, including ERP, EPCIS, Warehouse Management, as well as line-level equipment such as vision technologies, printing solutions and packaging automation.
By matching distribution center processes (from goods receipt through packing and shipping) and managing that workflow, which includes the capture, tracking, aggregation and disaggregation of serialized data.
AHP and Acsis collaboration story
At American Health Packaging (AHP), a part of AmerisourceBergen, product movement was tracked on paper and then written into the firm’s ERP system. This manual process was not supporting AHP’s transition from a batch-based solution to the fully serialized supply chain that the company needed to meet DSCSA mandates.
AHP and Acsis worked together to employ line-level serialization for 10 packaging lines and the Acsis Edge solution for the union of all data including serialized and non-serialized. With the aid of seamless integration of scanner-captured data and the automation of shipping processes, AHP was happy with the immediate efficiency gains, along with the lessening in cycle count time and several hours saved in shipping-related processes each week.

Converting the raw materials into the finished products used by the military, first responders, and industry and law enforcement requires an extensively integrated, multi-level third-party global supply chain. In order to capture and share information among their supply network, the company needed an application that could connect nearly 200 unique entities.
The solution: DuPont utilized Acsis Edge Network which is a cloud–based solution solving troubles of visibility of product movement and synchronization of systems across extended supply partners. With Acsis, DuPont’s partners are able to exchange data using technology they already have.

The architecture ensures ongoing transaction security while providing instant information visibility.
The Benefits: Increased productivity and better performance without compromising security
