Enterprise System Partners (ESP), announced it has established a strategic partnership with TraceLink, the world’s largest track and trace network for connecting the Life Sciences supply chain and eliminating counterfeit drugs from the global marketplace. TraceLink and ESP have entered into this partnership to align the system capabilities of TraceLink with the proven global delivery capability of ESP in order to meet the rapidly growing demand for this solution, in particular in the EU and North American markets.

ESP has been working in the area of serialization for more than 10 years with many of its consultants working across multiple industries for over 25 years. Through this extensive experience, across a large number of global projects, ESP has developed a deep and business focused understanding of where and how serialization solutions can be most effectively applied. This includes a detailed understanding of both the evolution and the current status of serialization global regulatory requirements.

Liam O’Riordan, Serialization Director for ESP said, “ESP is delighted to enter into this partnership. I believe that the synergy of the experience of both organizations is an extremely effective tool in meeting the needs of our collective customers across the globe. This is particularly important in the next two years as our customers work hard to meet the impending EU February 2019 compliance date.”

“We are excited to embark on this partnership with ESP, a leading global consulting company for manufacturing in the life sciences. Through this alliance, our customers will now have a recognized and trusted partner that can offer specialized guidance, consultancy and delivery expertise on complete manufacturing operations for pharmaceutical and contract manufacturers, as they implement serialization programs for US and EU compliance,” said Graham Clark, Director, Worldwide Channels, TraceLink.
