"Product Data in the Healthcare Supply Chain"
How managing product information can support stronger compliance, processes, and marketing initiatives.
The healthcare products industry is dominated by manual activities and regulations. Product data maintained in multi systems puts a burden on profitability and performance. Manufacturers and distributors can solve issues in logistics, compliance, customer service and marketing like these:
>Product information must conform to regulatory requirements to ensure accuracy, safety, validity and effectiveness.
>Product related data taken from other systems leads to inconsistency.
>RFID and EPC systems generate extraordinary amounts of data that need to be managed, and fed to inventory and logistics applications.
>Problems with information accuracy lead to delays and errors in label, packaging, and catalog production which raises risk of legal action and slows new product introductions.
