Traceability has never been more critical for an ever-evolving industry like pharma. Consequently, consumers and regulatory authorities have high expectations that are only getting higher.
Imagine a scenario where your supplier notifies you that there is a severe flaw in the batches they delivered. You have used goods in multiple production processes, and your final goods are either somewhere in your warehouse, or even worse, have already been sent to a customer.
How frustrating and time-consuming would it be to track all the goods to recall them?
Here’s the good news: With the right and powerful ERP software tracking your whole product journey, it leaves no room for flaws.

Additionally, you can click back and forth, examine the relationships between batches and see absolutely everything that has been affected by the batch.
Here you can change the status of the batch, or indeed multiple batches where many batches have been affected, at the touch of a button. Also, you can block the batch from being used in production or sent out to customers in seconds.
