Gütersloh / Karlsruhe - The two IT companies, Systec & Services and arvato Systems, will be working closely together in future on the serialization of drug packaging. Their combined portfolios of IT solutions, industry know-how and consulting expertise will offer market participants in the pharmaceutical industry significant added value.

Starting 09 February 2019, pharmaceutical companies within the EU will be required to ensure that a unique and valid serial number is displayed on drug packaging that can be verified by the given country's own national verification system. Millions of serial numbers must, therefore, be provided, printed and safely communicated for a variety of different authentication methods. It is clear that the establishment of an appropriate technical infrastructure represents a major challenge for manufacturers, distributors and producers. To this end, arvato Systems and Systec & Services have already established on the market a robust serialization concept specifically targeted to meet this need.

Through this partnership, arvato Systems is strengthening its consulting expertise in the healthcare industry and, conversely, Systec & Services is expanding its service portfolio to include the arvato CSDB serialization solution. Both companies have many years of experience in delivering international implementation projects and can confidently and reliably support their customers along the entire process chain in the healthcare industry. "We are pleased to be working with the Systec & Services team of highly skilled experts. From advice on the implementation of the IT solution to managing and supporting the systems involved, together we are able to offer our customers a competent and efficient end-to-end solution", says Rudolf Henschel, Head of Sales and Business Development Healthcare.

"Our collaboration with arvato Systems makes it possible for us to provide our customers with a proven, well-established solution. As a specialist supplier to the Life Sciences industry, we are pleased to be able to expand our portfolio to include the arvato CSDB," adds Hermann Schäfer, Managing Partner at Systec & Services GmbH.
