Stefan Weigand is a Solution Manager for SAP for Healthcare. In a blog post on The SAP Community Network he’s written an informative overview — complete with useful graphics – showing how the implementation of GS1 with SAP’s Open Event Repository provides secure tracking and tracing throughout the complete healthcare supply chain, from the drug manufacturer to the patient.
One thing Mr. Weigand doesn’t mention is the Loftware Connector for SAP which can help streamline everything. Specifically, the Loftware Connector for SAP establishes a high-speed ‘connectivity bridge’ between enterprise applications and the Loftware Print Server (LPS). The combination of Loftware Connector® and Loftware Print Server enables enterprise applications to generate barcode and RFID smart labels across large networks of thermal-transfer printers and empowers companies to comply with current and future barcode label and RFID technology specifications regardless of their label production volumes. Much more about this solution is available here. Alternatively, at our home page under Movies and Presentations, we feature a video about the Loftware Connector for SAP Applications.
