New Product Launch: Pre-Configured Solutions to Help Meet Looming Deadlines
Optel Vision is pleased to announce the launch of its new pre-configured serialization solutions to help pharmas and CMOs meet the imminent 2017 DSCSA serialization deadlines, as many companies are still not on track to comply in time. With most serialization vendors already working at full capacity and lead times extending, it will be increasingly difficult to satisfy growing demand for serialization equipment as deadlines approach.

To counter this issue, Optel Vision has invested a significant amount and considerable effort in the development of its new line of pre-configured solutions, which allow for faster delivery. These solutions are specially designed for companies that have not yet started their serialization program, and who will no longer be able to deploy a full-fledged custom solution in time. “It's almost too late to start a completely new custom project at this stage, but with Optel Vision’s pre-configured solutions, CMOs and pharmas still have a chance to meet their compliance deadline in time,” says Mario Simard, Director of Product Line Management at Optel Vision. “We developed these solutions with one thing in mind: to help companies who will not meet the 2017 regulations with the current industry offering”, added Mr. Simard.

Three pre-configured solutions will be showcased at PackExpo Chicago:

  • The Manual Print Station™: an effective entry-level solution for fast serialization implementation.
  • CLTracker™ TE: Optel Visions’s latest Track & Trace solution for carton labeling machines.
  • Offline Label Tracker™: Mobile unit for accurate serialization of labels, off your line.
