Ensure the safest pharmaceutical products for your consumers while driving enhanced inventory management, product authentication, and chain of custody validation.

Industry Challenges

Item-level RFID has become essential for optimal supply chain management in the pharmaceutical industry, particularly with regard to issues of perishability, product authenticity, and chain of custody. Enabled by the Clarity® enterprise item-level software platform, SML’s item-level RFID solutions empower pharmaceutical firms to easily track and manage each of these aspects and more throughout the supply chain, all the way to the point of use.

SML’s innovative RFID technology solves a range of longstanding pharmaceutical industry challenges, including low-tech, manual processes that result in inaccurate inventory counts, time-consuming expiration date monitoring, and chain-of-custody issues. In the case of recalls, RFID helps prevent unnecessary waste by allowing traceability of products at the item level.
