A leading full-service global consulting firm specializing in serialization and traceability, along with supply chain strategy and operational transformation programs - will host a three-day Serialization Training & Certification Program December 6-8 at the Mövenpick Hotel City Centre in Amsterdam. The event is part of Supply Chain Wizard Academy, the company’s professional development & training platform targeting to build capabilities in the industry in supply chain & traceability fields.

Supply Chain Wizard’s comprehensive program is ideal for pharmaceutical industry professionals seeking in-depth insight into the methodologies and tools required to implement an effective customized serialization program. The program is designed for pharmaceutical industry professionals focused on serialization within their organizations, and for those looking to move beyond compliance to recognize additional ROI. 

For the first two days, participants will attend instructor-led classroom-style sessions addressing the myriad ways that implementing Track & Trace solutions impacts businesses – including company departments not typically associated with this impact. The program’s scope reaches beyond traditional packaging/engineering, and includes a review of serialization’s impacts on IT, supply chain/distribution, commercial/finance, artwork/labeling, and validation & qualification.

The program culminates with a “show and tell” site visit to a local pharmaceutical packager, who will demonstrate serialization concepts and techniques in real-time, and answer questions regarding the challenges and opportunities of implementing serialization. 

Supply Chain Wizard also is hosting Pharma CMO Summit in Amsterdam on December 4-5. Participants attending both programs will receive a special discount.

Centered around looming serialization deadlines in both the United States (late 2018) and Europe (early 2019), Supply Chain Wizard’s training & certification program presents tools and templates designed to help companies manage successful serialization implementation and, beyond that, further optimize their operations for growth, service and efficiency.  “While our training program focuses on helping pharma companies ensure serialization compliance for all of the countries and markets they serve, and also goes several steps further into the future,” explains Evren Ozkaya, Founder and CEO of Supply Chain Wizard. “The curriculum seeks to help participants understand all the vital data collected for serialization and how this information could be used to build a future digital supply chain that can positively influence their market share, sales, profitability and long-term viability.”
