continues to add new capabilities to its market-leading supply chain
execution software solutions for the healthcare and pharma sectors.
Those growing Softeon functional and regulatory compliance capabilities have
led to a number of recent wins and deployments across pharmaceutical
companies, e-pharmacies, medical device manufacturers, 3PLs serving the
healthcare/pharma sectors, and more.
In addition to these functional and regulatory capabilities, Softeon
provides an agile logistics software platform that allows its customers to
move rapidly to meet new requirements and opportunities, an increasingly
important consideration in the many healthcare-related markets that are
seeing dynamic change.
Core solution components in Softeon’s Cloud-based logistic platform for
healthcare and pharma include:
Warehouse Management System (WMS): Softeon WMS is a tier 1 solution built
on a robust data model with all the inventory control and pick, pack, ship
functionality the healthcare and pharma sectors require. That includes full
support for lot/batch tracking, expiration date management, serial number
tracking, recall management, and more. The WMS is fully FDA compliant and
has completed computer system validation of its WMS platform for GxP
Healthcare and pharma organizations can quickly onboard or migrate to this
platform, giving them a competitive edge.
Warehouse Execution System (WES): This is an add-on to the WMS that enables
orchestration and optimization of order fulfillment within a distribution
center based on multiple criteria, including order priority, customer
service commitments, pick optimization opportunities, carrier cut-off times,
and other fulfillment rules.
Softeon WES also provides the integration with various forms of distribution
automation, including TCA (tablet & capsule) and UUA (unit of use)
automation, dispensing robots and other material handling equipment,
Autonomous Mobile Robots (AMRs), and pick-to-light technology.
Order Management (DOM): Softeon DOM orchestrates fulfillment at the network
level across multiple pharma order types – home delivery, specialty drugs,
fulfillment of refrigerated, hazardous materials, controlled substances,
etc. It also supports powerful sourcing functions based on configurable
rules (e.g., order splits at an Rx line level), state-specific rules,
carrier optimization, and more.
Beyond these core solutions, Softeon continues to add additional
capabilities for these sectors, with new recent capabilities that include
Cold Chain/TOR (time out of refrigeration) management; full support for the
2023 DSCSA serialization, and support for moving customers from prior phases
of DSCSA to full serialization; controlled substance handling; and clinical
“Softeon has architected a solution for Healthcare, Medical devices,
