Serialization Consulting

Whether you are launching your first product, commercializing a new one, serializing your product portfolio or implementing a new system or process to enhance your supply chain, we can help.

Supply Chain projects are often initiated for compliance reasons, but they become truly transformational when you consider how existing technologies and workflows can be optimized to deliver ongoing business value.

By viewing your supply chain challenges in this way and by using our flexible Strategy through Sustainability methodology, we deliver cost-effective and scalable solutions that are right-sized for the individual use cases and requirements of your business.

Our Supply Chain Consulting services include:

Serialization Compliance

Our tailored serialization programs ensure your supply chain is fully compliant – and stays that way. From the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) and Europe’s Falsified Medicines Directive (EU-FMD) to similar regulations in emerging markets like Russia, Saudi Arabia, Brazil, and China, we are the undisputed global leader in serialization for every segment of the pharmaceutical supply chain.

Ready for Compliance?

Working from Strategy through Sustainability across every possible use case, we provide a variety of Packaged Services and Implementation Resources to outsource or complement your serialization compliance efforts. We also help operationalize your serialization investment, ensuring that if you want to create value beyond compliance, you have a rock-solid foundation to build on.

  • Launching your first product in the US?
  • Taking a US-approved product to Europe?
  • Evaluating if and how to enter other global markets?
  • Deciding if you need a Verification Router Service (VRS) for US Saleable Returns?
  • Looking ahead to full aggregation and/or serialized warehousing and distribution?

If you answered YES to any of those questions, contact us to help ensure serialization compliance does not slow you down.

First Time Launchers

Excellis guides organizations through the First-Time launch process by leveraging people, processes, and right-sized technologies. Our methodology ensures the success of your first commercial launch by leveraging a proven playbook that eliminates risk and maximizes readiness for all pre and post launch activities.

Many small biotechnology and pharmaceutical organizations historically followed a standard launch path for their assets by exploring out-licensing, partnerships, and outright acquisition. In recent years, more and more of these companies are launching their new drug themselves, rather than relying on large pharma companies to do it for them. The key question to this process is – how can they get it right the first time?

Brand Protection

Excellis helps brand owners protect their patients/consumers, brands, and business from risk related to illicit trade, to include counterfeiting, grey market/diversion, and product tampering. It’s a risk businesses can no longer afford to ignore.

Excellis has been building programs to protect supply chains since 2010. With early roots in regulated industries, Excellis has worked globally to enable people, process, and technology know-how to provide clients with compliance and assurance solutions. Whether you’re at the earliest stage of program exploration or you’re leading a mature program and looking to address gaps and opportunities, we can help.

Are you DSCSA ready?

The Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) became law in November 2013, providing a national standard for drug security and harmonizing existing state-level Pedigree regulations. DSCSA mandates fully supply chain traceability from pharmaceutical manufacturer to pharmacy dispenser, with compliance data exchange between supply chain partners at each change of ownership.
