Herbal And Homeopathic chooses TransLution™ for production tracking
Herbal And Homeopathic is a South African manufacturer of natural pharmaceutical products. Production of these pharmaceuticals is a complex process, involving tracking of many raw and packing materials in and out of the production facility. All materials are tested by the lab before they can be released into the storage area for issuing to production. Furthermore, all of the materials have expiry dates and supplier batches must be tracked throughout the storage and production processes. One of the major challenges in the process was to count the material stock in the storage area, which was both time consuming and fraught with errors caused by the incorrect recording of the stock.
