TraceLink Acquires ROC IT SolutionsBy
TraceLink, a provider of track-and-trace technologies, has acquired ROC IT Solutions, a provider of edge data capture services for serialized product inventory in the pharmaceutical supply chain.
The acquisition positions TraceLink with an end-to-end platform that enables life sciences companies to capture, process, and exchange serialized product data across a digital supply chain network and also manage warehouse product inventory.
By acquiring ROC IT and integrating EdgeTRAC, a software suite that allows manufacturers, distributors, and retailers to track and trace individual items throughout the supply chain, into its serialization software solutions, TraceLink now offers solutions for serialized receiving, picking, shipping, returns, deactivation, aggregation, de-aggregation, label printing, and tag management of pharmaceutical products, alongside its serialization software, country compliance solutions, and track and trace network.
The specific warehouse operations capabilities now offered by TraceLink as a result of the ROC IT acquisition include: operational integration, operational integration, serialized container management, pick, and pick/pack scenario support, shipment and shipment verification, ERP/WMS integration, comprehensive product support, and integrated solution for the healthcare and pharmacy community.
ROC IT’s former Pittsford, New York office location is now TraceLink’s second US office location, with the company’s global headquarters remaining in North Reading, Massachusetts.
