Ferox helps a client get their contract packaging solution "serialization ready"...

Starting in 2016 and delivering in the first quarter of 2017, Ferox worked with one of our premier clients, Praxis Packaging , to prepare for pharmaceutical serialization.  We helped Praxis Packaging  fast-track the configuration and testing of this FDA requirement for packaging prescription drugs.  We were responsible for all aspects of information technology for the project, setting up systems to process critical data from the production line to Praxis' customer.

What is serialization? "Pharmaceutical serialization is the tracking and tracing of the passage of prescription drugs through the supply chain from manufacturing to dispensing. This is generally accomplished through automated, electronic means, and is legally required in many countries. It involves such company practices as recording, authenticating, maintaining and sharing accurate records of items prior to dispatching. Pharmaceutical serialisation uses track and trace technology though the timings for implementation and the information required for a serialisation program is dependent on local national laws and standards."  -- wikipedia.org

The FDA has set some significant deadlines, starting with November 27, 2017.  Ferox helped Praxis Packaging  be ready for serialization well before that deadline and will continue to support their efforts as the upcoming deadlines approach.

With our deep partnership with Praxis, we were able to successfully help coordinate the delivery of this multi-vendor solution.  In addition to having met specific requirements to support one of Praxis' customers, we are now working with Praxis to connect serialization with even more pharma companies, helping to expand even more business opportunities for Praxis.

A conversation I had yesterday has me thinking, "why has Google become my personal go-to for software and services over Microsoft?"  I'm not a fan-boy, I just feel the GA tools out perform M$. Why is that?

I think the answer is low-friction. Google puts a high priority on reducing friction on interactions and transactions. Reduced friction is considered more important than a new feature or locking in customers.
