BarTender® Software for Pharmaceutical Labeling

Compliance with global regulations for the track and trace of prescription drugs, like the DSCSA provisions of the US FDA's DQSA, and the EU's Falsified Medicines Directive, presents a vast set of challenges for the pharmaceutical industry. While these serialization, e-pedigree and registration schemes have been mandated to provide consumer protections, building an integrated, interoperable supply chain while also staying abreast of evolving regulations requires a new approach to data management. As manufacturers implement their traceability programs, though, they’re also uncovering strategic value to their business: A well-deployed program can capture better visibility to the supply chain, reduce waste in procurement and warehousing, and streamline overall systems.

Labeling processes are crucial to serialization and e-pedigree program deployment.  Having the right labeling system in place — one that is secure, proven and reliable; that integrates completely with existing systems and workflows to enable single source of truth data management; and that scales and adapts to evolving business practices — can be the difference between a successful serialization initiative that creates efficiencies and a complicated one that creates costs.

BarTender is the heart of your track and trace labeling solution

BarTender® software is a secure component of validated installations at pharmaceutical manufacturers and packagers around the world. The pharma industry chooses BarTender for its ease of deployment and configurable technology, all backed by industry expertise — we understand the regulatory and process pressures the industry faces.

Layers of customizable settings add broad protections, with security features ranging from simple print-only settings to complex role-based permissions and label format encryption.
