Axway Track & Trace

Manage serialization, market specific regulatory reporting, diversion detection, product recalls and anti-counterfeiting

Axway Track & Trace manages serialized and non-serialized product events, and makes it easy to give your internal and external trusted parties access to product identification, location, serialization and event data at any point in the delivery supply chain. Built on an EPC Information Services (EPCIS), GS1 EPCglobal-certified, standards-based framework, it provides the product lifecycle visibility, logistics management and product verification services you need to optimize all of your track-and-trace initiatives.

Axway Track & Trace Key Capabilities

Implement an event repository with built-in master data

Axway Track & Trace can help you address the complexity of complying with regulations across multiple countries. For example, you can use it to:

  • Comply with reporting and serialization requirements outlined in the U.S. Federal Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA)
  • Upload product data and unique identifiers entering the legal supply chain to the European Medicines Verification System (EMVS), as mandated by the EU Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD)
  • Associate and manage product master data, serialized events and distribution channel events
  • Capture aggregations and change-of-ownership and de-commissioning events to provide a complete picture of the product lifecycle
  • Automate extraction and data transformation to meet country-specific reporting requirements
  • Access a clear history of previously reported events
  • Transmit compliance reports to partners or regulatory authorities with guaranteed delivery

Manage serialization across multiple sites

Whether you are implementing barcodes or RFID tagging, the process of generating unique serial numbers across multiple manufacturing sites can be tricky.

Axway Track & Trace manages the lifecycle events of products as they move through your extended supply chain, making it much easier to manage serial numbers across multiple facilities. With a single framework for serial number management, you can:

  • Ensure the uniqueness of serial numbers at the pallet, case, and/or unit level. Track & Trace assigns serial number ranges to manufacturing lines or facilities and generates an initialization (commissioning) event. Central management of serial numbers ensures non-repudiation across multiple lines or facilities/plants
  • Support multiple serial number formats, including GTIN and SSCC
  • Manage multiple printing solutions by integrating Track & Trace with line management systems or off-line labeling systems

Accelerate regulatory compliance

Axway Track & Trace can help you address the complexity of complying with different market regulations: 

Comply with current reporting and serialization requirements outlined in the U.S. Federal Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA)

  • Associate and manage product master data, serialized events and distribution channel events
  • Capture aggregations and change-of-ownership and de-commissioning events to provide a complete picture of the product lifecycle
  • Access a clear history of previously reported events
  • Transmit compliance reports to partners or regulatory authorities with guaranteed delivery

 Comply with track and trace regulations as mandated by the EU Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD)

  • Generate serial numbers that meet EFPIA pack coding requirements
  • Submit product code data targeted for EU member states to the European Medicines Verification System (EMVS)
  • Manage serialized product pack data, and status changes for prescription drugs targeted for European supply chain
  • Trigger compliance reporting to EMVS based on customer configured operational processes and event data attributes

Identify counterfeit products

To ensure public safety and protect your brand, you need to be able to quickly identify counterfeit products. Track & Trace simplifies the process by enabling you to create a central database that contains all your serial number and search capabilities with key status information (valid, invalid, unknown).

You can then use the database to offer product verification services to enrich existing customer-facing, internal or partner web applications.

For example, you can provide a web service that allows internal and external trusted parties (including lines of business, partners, customers and regulators) to access product identification, location, status, and event data at any point in the supply chain. User-friendly entry of serial number and/or GTIN facilitates adoption.

Detect product diversion

While your channel partners have a clear responsibility to adhere to the terms and conditions of your partner programs, the burden of enforcing them ultimately falls on you. Axway Track & Trace can help protect your profits and brand equity by detecting potential “gray market” product diversion. 

It offers a centralized framework for managing serialized product and channel information, and aggregates product lifecycle events from multiple sources (including disparate internal systems and channel partner sales data) to provide a single source of actionable intelligence for channel managers. For example, you can use Track & Trace to support field investigations by providing remote query access to validate product identification and authorized sales channels using a serial number or a combination of criteria that identifies the product.

Track & Trace can also integrate with your order and customer management systems, so managers can track channel performance against supply policies to quickly detect anomalies.
