VAI, a leading ERP software developer, recently announced integrations with traceability and serialization solutions such as Adents, and LSPediA’s Verification Router Service to enable drug supply chain manufacturers and distributors to meet the fast-approaching Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) serialization track and trace requirements. Through its S2K Pharma ERP Software, VAI will provide customers with a built-in verification router service solution - tracking all drugs throughout the supply chain for increased visibility.

Following the DSCSA’s announcement that all pharma distributors must have a process in place for verifying product identification of returned drugs, organizations are racing to comply with these new regulations. According to a recent study, only 38% of warehouses said they were confident their ERP or WMS systems will be able to handle all their serialized distribution needs.

When a pharmaceutical supplier ships a product after November 2019, the receiving organization must verify they are obtaining the right barcode with the right serial number along with other supporting data. And with nearly 25% of all 2D barcodes having coding issues, wholesale drug distributors need a verification routing service that can help them track all prescription drug returns.

“VAI’s S2K Pharma ERP solution provides our customers with a built-in verification router service solution for DSCSA compliance,” said Gina Parry, Sales Manager at VAI. “By partnering with companies such as Adents and LSPediA, our S2K Pharmaceutical solution is critical for wholesale drug distributors who have just months to prepare for the FDA’s November 2019 deadline for verifying saleable returns.”

Meeting the DSCSA 2019 saleable returns requirement and the 2023 interoperability requirement, VAI’s S2K Pharma ERP solution allows customers to perform product verification in real-time with sub-second response directly from the S2K application without additional steps or systems. The system will automatically track items as required, as well as validate licenses for the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) to ensure that all transactions are in accordance with the law.

“Previously, employees were solely responsible for updating and validating licenses for each order manually which can lead to increased errors and fines if the licenses are not validated correctly,” said Parry. “Through our solution, distributors now have the ability to create a safer environment for consumers through improved traceability.”
