"Golden State Medical Supply's selection of IBM for this project shows that our Pharmaceutical Track & Trace Solution is as viable for small and mid-sized operations as it is for the titans of the pharmaceutical industry," said Christian Clauss, director of sensor network solutions, IBM.
IBM is providing GSMS software, hardware, and services. The ePedigree capability will be provided by the IBM WebSphere RFID Information Center, a high performance data repository that allows companies to manage and share information with trading partners to authenticate pharmaceuticals. The product is compliant with both GS1 EPCglobal's Electronic Product Code Information Services (EPCIS) standard, and its Drug Pedigree Standard. In addition to using the software for ePedigrees, GSMS will be able to use it to address business needs such as chargeback resolution and expiration management.
Serialized drug pedigree information will be provided to the WebSphere RFID Information Center by the IBM WebSphere Premises Server. The Premises Server will enhance key business processes in GSMS' packaging facility and distribution center using 2D barcodes, RFID and other types of sensors.
The software will be run on IBM System x servers, which will be provided by IBM Business Partner Direct Systems Support.
