Videojet has partnered with Systech to help companies meet emerging regulations by introducing track and trace equipment to the Brazilian market.

Last year Brazil implemented a law which requires companies to track the manufacture and consumption of medicines using data capture, storage and electronic transmission technology.

To serve companies faced with this new regulation Videojet is partnering with Systech to introduce the serialised product tracking (STP) system to Brazil.

Explaining the benefits of partnering, Joe Ringwood, chief operating officer of Systech, said: “The combination of Systech's software and Videojet's local support will help meet our customers' immediate serialization initiatives​.”

Systech STP allows users to serialise products at the item, case and pallet levels. Information from these items on the packaging line is communicated to the government managed repository. Data also flows the other way, maintaining the integrity needed to meet Brazilian legislation.

Further features include the software’s configurability which allows it to handle the multiple code schemas needed to comply with various regulations, speeds implementation and eases in-house maintenance. These traits decrease downtime, increase productivity and lower costs.

Local support

Videojet will use its experience of deploying coding and marking systems in pharma packaging lines to support companies which acquire Systech STP. The company has also been involved in implementing complex hardware and software integrations.

Furthermore, Videojet was a supplier in the pilot programme which evaluated the feasibility of complying with the new track and trace regulations.

By combining this local industry knowledge with Systech STP, Andre Santos, Country Manager, Videojet Brazil, believes the company can “offer complete, turnkey solutions that effectively meet manufacturers' business needs​”.
