The Challenge

AstraZeneca needed to comply with a growing number of country-specific regulations, requiring products to be traceable through the supply chain. In order to fulfill these regulations, AstraZeneca was obliged not only to change existing warehouse processes but also to equip warehouse and production staff with equipment to allow them to efficiently record the movement of products down to the sales pack. AstraZeneca also wanted to provide inspectors and sales representatives with the means to verify the status of products directly in the field. 

The Customer
About The Customer

AstraZeneca plc is a British-Swedish pharmaceutical and biotechnology company with its headquarters at the Cambridge Biomedical Campus in Cambridge, England. It has a portfolio of products for major diseases in areas including oncology, cardiovascular, gastrointestinal, infection, neuroscience, respiratory, and inflammation. It has been involved in developing the Oxford-AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.

The Solution

Product traceability has become a mission-critical, license-to-operate requirement across the pharmaceutical industry

Honeywell Forge Track & Trace was selected because it was the most suitable solution in the market for such a mission-critical operation involving a large variety of mobile scanning devices – smartphones, forklifts, picking tables, etc. Its out-of-the-box integration with SAP Track & Trace and SAP WM/MM, the rapid development – build once and run on 8 different platforms – and secure support for 3rd party devices made this platform uniquely suitable to meet global track & trace requirements. 

The Consumer Experience was also important, as the app had to be very simple to use, with minimal training included, which again Honeywell Forge could easily fulfill.
