In highly regulated industries, ensuring a seamless flow of information is paramount for success. Whether you're in the food and beverage industry managing nutritional panels, allergen statements and complex recipe management, or in the medical device industry managing instructions for use (IFU), lot/serial numbers and expiration dates, integrating and migrating data can be a major challenge. 

This is where cloud-based, automated, intelligent digital platforms come in - highly customizable and easy-to-integrate, simplifying migration and integration.

Integration Challenges 

1. Product Information Management (PIM) and Product Lifecycle Management (PLM): 

While Product Lifecycle Management and Product Information Management systems are crucial for managing comprehensive product data, they are not typically designed to handle pack copy and assets. While these systems store extensive product details, they often lack complete pack copy, such as the marketing copy which is usually managed separately in tools like Word or Excel. 

By choosing a platform like Kallik’s Veraciti, integrating with PLM/PIM systems has never been easier as any relevant information can be seamlessly imported to create accurate pack copy. Additionally, any updates made in Veraciti can be pushed back to the PLM/PIM systems, ensuring a unified source of truth - a game changer for ensuring an efficient, cost-effective and compliant labeling and artwork process. 

2. ERP Systems:

ERP systems are invaluable in the pharmaceutical industry, serving as centralized hubs for storing and managing crucial information such as ingredients, dosages, and warnings. Integrating ERP systems with your label and artwork management system enhances data management and allows for the efficient exchange of vital data like item codes, SKU master data, and printed material stock and BOM data. 

Such connectivity enables seamless use of master data across systems, aids in making informed decisions regarding inventory based on artwork stock, and assists in assessing the impact of artwork changes on the ERP Product BOM. Additionally, it improves supply chain, procurement, and vendor coordination by linking ERP item codes to approved artwork files, thereby streamlining operations and ensuring consistency across the product lifecycle. With Veraciti, this level of efficiency is easy to achieve.

3. Syndicators:

Highly regulated industries, such as the medical device industry, are subject to stringent regulatory requirements (such as FDA's CFR 21 Part 820 or EU Medical Device Regulation) governing labeling and product information. Syndicators ensure that labeling information remains compliant and updated across all platforms according to these regulations. 

Integrating your label and artwork management system with syndicators takes this compliance to the next step by significantly streamlining distribution and allowing brands to push product information, pack shots, and marketing collateral to various websites and online retailers in a GS1 compliant format. Ensuring GS1 compliance is crucial for data standardisation and accuracy across e-commerce platforms. 

With Veraciti, this integration allows brands to maintain consistent, approved, and up-to-date content across all e-tailers, enhancing brand integrity and reliability in the digital marketplace.
