Collaboration: Systech and Omega

Omega's collaboration with Systech was cited in Contract Pharma Magazine in April 2016 in the Collaborations & Alliances section.


Systech International, a provider of brand protection technologies, wilI now offer its UniSolve serialization software as an inte­grated solution with Omega Design Corp. - a global provider of packaging machin­ery, serialization solutions, and bottle un­scrambling technology.

UniSolve, Systech's serialization soft­ware will be available in an all-in-one, pre-configured offering from Omega. The companies have a history of collaboration and Systech's software is frequently used as part of Omega's deployments.

"For the last 8 years, we have part­nered with Systech to deploy world class material handling integrated with their serialization software," said Glenn Siegele, president of Omega. "Combin­ing our product offerings into a single solution anticipates the critical need for rapid deployment as many of our clients face looming global deadlines to protect the supply chain."

In partnering with Systech's UniSolve software, Omega can now deliver rapid deployment, pre-configured serialization modules in as little as 60 days, accord­ing to the company. The solution offers one integrated manual, integrated single validation documents and a combined Factory Acceptance Test (FAT) that helps streamline the site integration and valida­tion process.

"Demand for our supply chain solu­tions has exploded as the need for en­terprise serialization, track and trace, authentication and regulatory compli­ance expands in adjacent markets such as food and beverage, retail and con­sumer products," notes Lou Arace, chief operating officer, Systech. "Our global clientele has long relied on Omega and Systech to protect their brands, their bottom line, and-most importantly­ their consumers."
