TraceLink’s China Compliance application manages China’s track and trace regulations. China’s Drug and Food Administration (CFDA) generates serial numbers and assigns them to manufacturers. TraceLink serialization application owners import the serial numbers, and, using an encoding format unique to China, they apply the serial numbers to their products. The China Compliance application creates the required reports, including complex file splitting, sequencing, and naming and makes them available for upload to the designated CFDA system.
Delivery Tracking provides pharmaceutical manufacturers with visibility into when raw materials and APIs arrive at their contract partners and when finished goods are shipped. The application also provides visibility into when product is received at 3PLs and when 3PLs ship product to customers. In addition to visibility, transactional information can be sent from contract partners and 3PLs to properly record inventory and product movement within the ERP system for proper financial reporting.
TraceLink Digital Recalls™ revolutionizes recalls by leveraging the TraceLink network to create a digital recall ecosystem. As part of the network, pharmaceutical and medical device manufacturers can create digital recall notifications and send same-day communications to downstream partners. A combination of serialization data and product information can be used to provide targeted recall alerts for relevant pharmacies, health systems, wholesalers, and returns processors and provide insights into recalled product locations. The result is enhanced patient safety, faster identification of recalled products, improved recall process efficiency, and enterprise-wide coordination of recalls.
Edge Track provides seamless integration of serialization and fulfillment operations in the warehouse. With a single scan, warehouse operators verify the inventory data expected by their Warehouse Management System (WMS) or ERP, as well as the serialization data expected by TraceLink’s Serialized Operations Management application.

Inventory Monitoring provides pharmaceutical manufacturers with visibility into their inventory positions at their contract manufacturers. Inventory is typically reported daily and includes inventory categories such as Quantity On Hand, Quantity On Hold, Quantity Inspection, and Quantity On Order. In addition to total amounts, inventory reporting is provided at the lot level and lot history balances are captured and available to show which lots are being consumed.
Master Data Exchange is a central repository for master data required for serialization, track and trace, and compliance applications. Master data consists of information related to the Company and its locations, Partners and their locations, and Product. Master data is used by TraceLink’s applications as part of executing advanced business logic that drive workflow.
Patient Engagement Software Development Kit (SDK)
TraceLink’s Patient Engagement SDK provides pharmaceutical companies with the ability to incorporate medicine verification capabilities and the distribution of product information into their own mobile and web properties. In addition, with the permission of the participating pharmaceutical company, the medicine verification experience can be integrated into third-party digital solutions where patients are already engaged, thereby creating new, secure communication channels between pharmaceutical companies and consumers.
TraceLink’s Product Information Manager provides a global network application for enabling permissioned sharing and consumption of serialized medicine information, interactive digital content, product disposition status, and other critical product data to direct business partners, indirect trading partners, and patients.
Product Track US manages your compliance data across the pharmaceutical supply chain to ensure that you meet your regulatory requirements as the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) is phased in. Product Track traces your product as it moves through the supply chain and generates the Transaction Histories required for lot-level compliance. Product Track also manages serialization data for those companies implementing package-level traceability to prepare the 2023 DSCSA requirements.
Production Tracking provides pharmaceutical manufacturers with visibility into manufacturing and packaging processes at their contract manufacturers. Production Tracking also uses TraceLink’s Integrate Once, Interoperate with Everyone™ network architecture eliminating the need to establish point-to-point integrations with each contact manufacturer. The pharmaceutical manufacturer has full visibility into the production process from material acquisition through to delivery allowing them to manage their contract manufacturers as an extension of their manufacturing processes.
Quality Review provides pharmaceutical manufacturers and contract manufacturers with a secure, collaborative workspace to exchange reviews and commentary on quality documents including batch records, change controls, and deviations. With the appropriate permissions, users can see the commentary captured as part of the review cycle and receive notifications when documents have been commented on or moved to another stage in the review cycle.

Business logic works to verify serial number requests, commissioning, and aggregation information. Includes out of the box integrations with leading line management systems simplifying site onboarding and reducing risk.
Serial Number Manager provides serial number generation including randomization and sequential algorithms for different packaging levels. Serial number inventories are maintained by setting configurable parameters on when to generate more serial numbers. Configuration parameters are defined through serial number templates that are associated with each product.
Serialized Operations Manager manages the events associated with serialized product as it moves through supply chain and distribution processes. This design eliminates the need to embed serialization event management into the ERP and WMS systems as those systems are not designed to handle the scale at the operational performance required by supply chain and distribution processes. Serialized Operations Manager also provides pre-built business logic and workflow designed to monitor transaction flow and events in order to trigger actions in other applications such as TraceLink compliance and edge applications.
Serialized Product Intelligence
The growing number of regulatory environments that require serialization means more complicated operations for all supply chain participants. TraceLink Serialized Product Intelligence™ is an analytics application that leverages the underlying data being generated from serialization efforts to reduce the number of disruptions impacting the supply chain. Using Serialized Product Intelligence, companies have more time to focus on delivering products on time, in full to patients.
