Companies are spending hundreds of millions of dollars, euros, rupees and rubles getting ready to comply with serialization regulatory mandates around the world. Deadlines are fast approaching in the US and the EU and they are already passed in India, South Korea, Argentina and Turkey. What companies are looking for next is how to extract some value beyond just complying with government mandates. Just about every solution provider offering serialization components and solutions out there has at least one product or service that is aimed squarely at this type of need. What we need to do is get these people together: those who are looking, and those who have the solutions.

Do you know what situation your peers’ businesses are in, and what they’re working to? To find out just that, IQPC polled their network of pharmaceutical serialization professionals and got responses from representatives of over 20 companies.
The results? Most find data storage and management to be their biggest issue, citing ERP systems as some of their biggest investments in 2016 and going forward. It follows that over 50% of those we polled are either implementing their strategies in multiple sites or already done and thinking beyond compliance.
IQPC also asked about their biggest inhibitors, their current and future budgets, and their experience with international compliance. If you want to find out what your peers think about these topics, you can download the survey report, or meet them on-site at the Pharmaceutical Traceability Forum, May 23 – 25 in Philadelphia.
