BRUSSELS, Belgium and SAO PAULO, Brazil, May 26, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Systech International, innovator of Packaging Execution Systems (PES) (http://www.systech-tips.com/pes.php), and Videojet Brazil, a leading supplier of encoding and marking solutions, today announced their partnership. With this partnership Videojet will sell, install, and support Systech's serialization solution in Brazil, allowing pharmaceutical manufacturers to effectively meet the country's quickly emerging regulatory requirements.
In 2009, Brazil passed Law 11.903, which requires the tracking of manufacturing and consumption of medicine by means of data capturing, storing, and electronic transmission technology. In order to comply with these regulations, local and multi-national pharmaceutical companies serving the Brazilian market need to promptly deploy serialization technology, such as Systech's Serialized Product Tracking (SPT) solution.
Systech SPT, a widely deployed serialization solution for the global pharmaceutical industry, serializes products at the item, case, and pallet levels. The solution also enables bi-directional communication between the packaging line and government managed repository, thereby maintaining the data integrity necessary to meet Brazil's track and trace initiative. As configurable software, SPT eases handling multiple code schemas to comply with various regulations, enables in-house personnel to easily maintain the solution, and speeds implementation. As a result, manufacturers see less line downtime, increased productivity, and reduced costs.
Through this strategic partnership, manufacturers can leverage the knowledge and experience of two leading companies, stated Joe Ringwood, COO, Systech International. Our proven solutions have been deployed worldwide by companies addressing various packaging needs. The combination of Systech's software and Videojet's local support will help meet our customers' immediate serialization initiatives.
Videojet Brazil has significant experience and expertise deploying its coding and marking solutions on pharmaceutical packaging lines throughout Brazil as well as deploying complex hardware and software integrations. The company was also a key supplier in the pilot to determine the feasibility of complying with the regulations conducted by ETCO, Brazilian Institute for Ethics in Competition. Therefore, their training and in-region support will significantly help pharmaceutical manufacturers successfully implement SPT.
Videojet is excited to partner with Systech and offer complete, turnkey solutions that effectively meet manufacturers' business needs, noted Andre Santos, Country Manager, Videojet Brazil. We can provide manufacturers in Brazil with the resources and support needed to address their packaging operations.
