The Challenge
Where innovation could be life changing, life science and pharmaceutical companies need to find ways to prevent greater regulatory scrutiny from delaying the delivery of medical devices and products. The need to accelerate the time to market is more apparent than ever; yet companies must navigate and comply with strict regulatory requirements to do so. The underlying challenge is the lack of integration across supply chain partners. Data flow between the different divisions, facilities, suppliers, and other partners is complex and prone to delays. For life science and pharmaceutical companies, delays can be crippling.
The Solution
We help life science and pharmaceutical companies keep a beat ahead by providing solutions to classify and ship samples, leverage CAPA, track equipment, and facilitate imports and exports by generating documents such as TSCA & HazMat, Clinical Invoices, and Certificates of Analysis.

As regulations are becoming more burdensome, Integration Point clients use our GTM platform to not only manage these complex regulations but also gain business value through our centralized platform. Through a configurable platform with integrated trade data, pharmaceutical companies no longer have to worry about the possibility of delayed shipments caused by incomplete or incorrect data as well as costly customs fines or penalties due to noncompliance. Furthermore, a GTM platform facilities the flow of information throughout your supply chain, ensuring that all your partners have the most up-to-date information.

In the United States, the FDA’s Drug Supply Chain Security Act calls for the pharma supply chain to create an “electronic, interoperable system to identify and trace certain specific drugs as they are distributed in the United States" – with compliance expected by 2023. Supply Chain Digital
