Karlsruhe, Germany – Integrated life sciences solutions provider Körber Business Area Pharma has introduced a new APAC version of its innovative Arvato CSDB Track & Trace solution adapted to the needs of Asia-Pacific customers, featuring efficient serialization and aggregation services in local languages.

Arvato CSDB APAC combines regional requirements with the experience gained from numerous global projects. It allows pharmaceutical and biotech companies in the Asia-Pacific region to implement serialization and track & trace (T&T) projects via a local version of the Arvato Corporate Serialization Database solution.

Multi-level functionality

Körber Business Area Pharma consulting specialists worked in collaboration with Arvato Systems to tailor the new regionalized Arvato CSDB APAC Edition specifically to local and regional market requirements.

It encompasses T&T processes for pharmaceutical production that range from simple Level 1 serialization and batch data all the way through to full data interchange at Level 5. All levels are available as modular components and can be easily adapted to specific and changing requirements and existing IT architecture.

At level 3, the smart CSDB software manages serialization, packaging, and aggregation processes from the first two levels and communicates with parallel or supraordinate systems, such as a manufacturing execution system (MES) or enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. From Level 5, data exchanges take place (such as with business partners’ systems or national verification systems).

Rapid implementation

Thank to specialist expertise from of Körber, the system is designed for rapid implementation in under 30 days on average to install the system from the beginning of the integration process to the first use of the Arvato CSDB solution in production.

“Via our local sales and service hubs in the region and with the help of experienced partners on site, we can offer our customers short reaction times and provide them with experts who speak their language,” emphasizes Dr. Martin Printz, Vice President Sales & Marketing Pharma Consulting, Körber Business Area Pharma.

“This proximity to our customers is important to us and has been the deciding factor in many successful projects,” Dr. Printz added.

APAC adaptation

Through intensive exchange with customers in the region, the serialization specialists from Körber and Arvato Systems have been able to adapt the scalable, modular solution to support APAC companies on site and also adapt rapidly to the changing needs of fast-expanding businesses. Using state-of-the-art cloud hosting in Asia, the data ownership remains in the region and companies benefit from local cost structures. The Arvato CSDB APAC Edition is compliant with national verification systems.

“With the Arvato CSDB APAC Edition, we are specifically addressing the needs of our customers in the Asia-Pacific pharmaceutical market,” explains Carl-Rainer Stetter, Head of Sales and Business Development Healthcare at Arvato Systems.

“Together with our local experts, we and Körber have adapted the Arvato CSDB solution to optimally reflect local requirements and business models. The Arvato CSDB APAC Edition will continue to comply with new regulations and requirements in the future. The fact that we are able to draw on Körber’s extensive know-how from more than 1,500 serialization and track & trace projects worldwide represents a great added value for the future users,” said Mr. Stetter.
