Powered by Opus™, the Platform for the Internet of Supply Chains™ (IoSC)

The Internet of Supply Chains (IoSC) blurs the lines between the physical and digital worlds, connecting people, processes, systems and data with digital networks that enable manufacturers to respond to patient demand, adapt to fluctuations in supply, and enable network members—collectively—to act more intelligently than any person, group, or computer has ever done before.

The TraceLink Opus platform enables companies to build digital business networks and integrate business ecosystems with multienterprise supply chain applications. By leveraging the TraceLink Opus Digital Network Platform, which incorporates over 290,000 member organizations from across the life sciences, pharma, and healthcare sectors, pharma companies can enhance transparency, trust, and collaboration across trading partners.

TraceLink Opus is the platform for the IoSC that enables speed of innovation and implementation with an open partner model for no-code and low-code development of solutions and applications. With the Opus platform, companies can create interoperable networks, integrate data across trading partners, access predictive analytics and collective intelligence from across the network, leverage pre-built multienterprise applications or develop their own, and create customized solutions while maintaining network interoperability, resulting in greater patient-centric agility and better outcomes.

Track and Trace, a Digital Supply Chain Network Success Story

As early as 2009, TraceLink realized that worldwide track and trace regulations would require the creation of a digital network platform to enable companies to exchange serialized data and traceability information with both direct and indirect trade partners.

To meet this global challenge, TraceLink created the largest digital network platform in the industry to power the most successful IoSC implementation to date.

  • 1,300 customers and 287,000 authenticated and onboarded network members
  • 816 million regulatory documents processed and exchanged
  • 30+ billion serial numbers commissioned to date
  • 13,925 live serialization connections
  • 7,035 live CMO connections
  • $4.6 billion in customer savings by avoiding point-to-point integrations

Improve Supplier Collaboration with Supply Chain Work Management

TraceLink Supply Chain Work Management is a revolutionary new way to execute supply chain management processes by digitalizing work across multiple tiers of supply chain partners.

High performance supply chain management required well-choreographed execution between cross-functional teams at your company and your supply partners. From planning and sourcing materials to making and delivering products, there are an endless number of processes that cross company boundaries. Unfortunately, these processes are managed today primarily through emails, phone calls, and spreadsheets and have not been digitalized—until now!

The Supply Chain Work Management Solution enables teams to:

  • Assign tasks and track due dates.
  • Manage incidents.
  • Review documents.
  • Manage changes.
  • Track progress with dashboards.

Exceptions are resolved faster. Costs are reduced. And on-time, in-full (OTIF) delivery goals are exceeded.

Pharma companies that leverage Supply Chain Work Management have been able to resolve supply chain issues up to 65% faster and reduce manufacturing disruptions by as much as 97%. They have also improved OTIF by as much as 82%.

Meet Compliance Requirements with Our Track-and-Trace Solution Suite

TraceLink delivers a flexible and rich compliance data management system for the secure creation, management, and exchange of track-and-trace data with supply chain partners to meet requirements for compliance with new and evolving regulations around the world.
