TraceLink and Patheon have entered into a strategic partnership aimed at improving visibility and collaboration for life science companies across their entire product manufacturing and packaging lifecycle.
“The Patheon Partnering Philosophy is based on the establishment of strategic relationships with our life science customers that deliver increased competitiveness and operational improvement,” said Paul Garofolo, Patheon’s executive vice president, Corporate Technology. “This collaboration with TraceLink provides a key foundation for this vision by improving communications, providing better production visibility and promoting joint operational execution with our network of customers. As a result, companies can minimize cost, reduce cycle time and improve agility in today’s complex pharmaceutical market.”
According to the companies, the TraceLink/Patheon offering incorporates a comprehensive suite of visibility and collaboration software solutions, advanced integration capabilities and customized professional services designed to accelerate time-to-value. For SAP customers, a jointly developed integration adapter for SAP systems will be offered to help accelerate customer on-ramp and improve data access for strategic decision-making.
“Connecting all people, processes and information across the outsourced manufacturing lifecycle is a cornerstone for a predictable supply network,” said Shabbir Dahod, president and chief executive officer of TraceLink. “Patheon’s collaboration with us on SAP adapter development is just one element of this partnership that demonstrates their dedication to improving customer connectivity and building strategic customer relationships.”
