ASC Pharmaceutical Industry Solutions

Fully Integrated Software Solutions for Complex Pharmaceutical Distribution and Manufacturing Operations

ASCTrAX® testimonial ASC solutions

"Our choice to partner with ASC was the best thing that we ever did for our warehouse distribution center operation. Our labor productivity was dramatically improved and our inventory accuracy was near 100%. These two reasons alone paid for the system in only a few months. But, a real gain was our ability to provide a much better and improved service for our customers."

- Ed C., Distribution Manager, Kimberly Clark Medical Products

Experience: For more than twenty-five years, ASC has been instrumental in partnering with pharmaceutical manufacturers and distributors to produce, track, and ship products throughout their enterprise and trading partner network.

Some of the largest companies in the world trust ASC software for these complicated distribution tasks. ASCTrac® - used by one of the largest global pharmaceutical distribution and sourcing services along with many others.

Pharmaceutical Grade: ASCTrac® WMS has been FDA certified by our users for use in pharmaceutical manufacturing and distribution (including narcotics controls such as DEA form 222). When you have to prove it, our system provides the audits and processes that you will need. We also support RFID for pedigree controls, lot tracing, robotic picking control, and supply chain security (ePedigree.)

Medical Devices and Nutrition Solutions: In addition to pharmaceutical companies, there are pharmaceutical-grade requirements that are required for other similar goods and services. For example, ASCTrac® WMS has been implemented for medical device companies (catheters, etc.), cosmetic products (lip stick, etc.), nutraceuticals (nutrition supplements, multi-level marketing programs, etc.), and other medical products for pharmacies. This includes distribution and manufacturing, as well as 3rd party logistics environments.

Pharmaceutical Grade Processes: ASC includes variance costing for manufacturing as pharmaceutical manufacturing processes may be "process based manufacturing." This is where lean manufacturing and costing is a great benefit, and our lean costing process is seamless all the way to the financial system.

Advanced Product Recall Processes: ASCTrac® is designed for users who need to instantly handle any product recalls throughout their supply chain. Since we focus on true pharmaceutical-grade lot tracking in all of our applications, we exceed all FDA mandates.

Field Proven: ASC solutions have been proven in the field when customers demand reliable performance for multi-shift, multi-plant enterprises in tough to track environments. Our solutions have been used in many industries: pharmaceutical, medical products, food and beverage, (frozen foods, milk, Coca-Cola®, beer, dry foods, food components and ingredients, dairy products such as cheese and ice cream, meats, cake mixes, etc.), consumer goods, textiles, utility industry, furniture, as well as third party logistics groups (3PLs) for food and pharma grade warehouses.

"Drug Quality And Security Act"

New Drug Track and Trace: We have added new transaction sets to support the new US federal law for "Drug Quality Security Act" (HR 3204, "DQSA", Federal Law effective 1-1-2015). This is for drug distributors, 3PL's, and manufacturers in the drug supply chain. Specifically, this module supports ePedigree or track and trace rules.

This requires "change of ownership" logic AND "inventory movements" logic which can be very complicated in mixed mode enterprises. We have tied this logic together for mixed enterprises (sold-on-consignment goods, 3PL transfers, order fulfillment, order receipt, dispensing, etc.) Since this requires a very specific set of transactions for your trading partners, please contact us for more information.
