Print, Apply and Verify module for low-cost serialization, fast implementation in pharmaceutical packing operations

Mobile software solution fits easily into any manual packing operation, prints labels with standard GS1 identifiers and integrates with any EPCIS-based serial number management system

Pittsford, NY – September 4, 2014 – ROC IT Solutions, supplier of software that enables track and trace in the pharmaceutical supply chain, announces its Print, Apply and Verify module for serialized label printing and management. Part of the ROC IT EdgeTRAC™ software suite, the Print, Apply and Verify module is a lightweight mobile solution that deploys quickly using a laptop computer, handheld scanners and mobile printers.

Print, Apply and Verify Serialized Labels

Use a handheld scanner to scan products, then select GTIN, Lot and Expiry. Print and apply a 2D barcode label, then scan it to verify it. ROC IT updates all back-end systems with the commissioned serial number hierarchy data.

Fitting easily into any manual packing operation, the Print, Apply and Verify module is ideal for repackagers and low-volume manufacturers, as well as high-volume manufacturers who need to quickly serialize a subset of their product line for export to South Korea, China, Brazil and other countries to meet fast-approaching serialization deadlines.

The mobile solution allows for use in multiple areas within a company or facility. It has been successfully deployed at several client locations since June 2014.

“The Print, Apply and Verify module is the fastest and most effective way to quickly serialize products in low-volume packing operations, for a fraction of the cost of completely automated solutions,” said Larry Hall, vice president of sales and operations at ROC IT Solutions. “Our clients have been impressed with how easy it is to deploy and use in their production environments.”

The Print, Apply and Verify module enables manufacturers and repackagers to meet immediate serialization requirements around the globe and supports DQSA compliance.

Using the Print, Apply and Verify module on a smart handheld device (Motorola, Intermec, etc.), workers scan or enter a product ID for items to be labeled. They select GTIN, lot and expiry and print serialized 2D matrix barcode labels containing these standard GS1 identifiers. The module supports any kind of tag format using handheld printers and ZPL templates (Zebra or other manufacturer). After workers apply the labels and verify them with a scan from the handheld device, the ROC IT EdgeTRAC™ software updates all back-end systems with the commissioned serial number hierarchy data.

The module is based on GS1 standards and integrates with any EPCIS-based serial number management system. Users can also generate standard reports for tag status (printed, verified, not verified, decommissioned) and export to PDF or CSV format.

About ROC IT Solutions

ROC IT Solutions enables serialized data capture, label printing and tag management for receiving, picking, shipping, returns, deactivation, aggregation and de-aggregation of pharmaceutical products. Our solutions streamline serialization at all points in the supply chain, from manufacturers to wholesalers, distributors and retailers. Through more accurate and efficient supply chain serialization, ROC IT Solutions’ track and trace software helps companies protect revenues, combat counterfeiting and diversion, and ensure consumer safety.

ROC IT serialization software enables “intelligent edge data capture,” allowing companies to capture and process data for serialized assets at the edge of the supply chain, where materials handling takes place. By reducing data capture errors and providing real-time decision making at the point of materials handling, our solutions enable serialized product tracking without bottlenecks or bandwidth issues. Our unique distributed architecture enables agile and scalable solutions that are easily deployed and maintained to support any ERP, EPCIS / Serial Number Management, track-and-trace, Auto-ID or other application, as well as interoperability with any device for barcode and RFID data capture, using GS1 standards.
