Global software product and technology services provider Persistent Systems has introduced a new compliance-based, design to print (D2P) automation solution for pharmaceutical packaging and product lifecycle management (PLM).

The newest offering in the Paxpro Enterprise Collaboration Solution, PaxPharma suite, delivers the entire D2P supply chain on one platform from NPI/NPD, product design and CAD, to labelling, artwork management, PLM and document lifecycle management for pharmacovigilance.

PaxPharma includes a database module that manages the rules and regulations set by the FDA for each product type, from OTC drug to cosmetics.

Several of the FDA rules will be automatically selected by the module based on product attributes specified by the labelling specialist, reducing errors and providing considerable time savings, according to the company.

The module can also be used to produce near-print ready drug fact templates (DFT's) and labelling documents, and allows marketing managers to have better control of their artwork and labelling assets.

Persistent Systems Paxpro Business Unit vice president Ram Pazhayannur said, "PaxPharma delivers an enhanced user experience through a fully integrated solution with secure data transfer across modules that significantly helps reduce human error, ensure regulatory compliance, and improve time to market."

PaxPharma comes integrated with Adobe Illustrator for artwork and label design, Dassault Systèmes SolidWorks for CAD, Oracle AutoVue for 3D viewing and proofing and Global Vision for text and artwork auto-proofing.

The solution was unveiled by the company at Pharma Packaging and Labeling USA 2013 conference being held on 26 and 27 February at the Hilton Philadelphia City Avenue Hotel.
