New Vantage Consulting Group service provides serialization expertise to contract pharmaceutical manufacturers and packagers

'Streamlined Serialization for CMOs/CPOs' offers highly experienced guidance when and where companies need it the most

Vantage Consulting Group today announced the first serialization service for pharmaceutical contract manufacturers and packagers that combines flexible levels of industry-leading guidance with built-in controls that produce real results on time and on budget.

Vantage Streamlined Serialization(TM) for CMOs/CPOs (Contract Manufacturing Organizations/Contract Packaging Organizations) enables contractors to help pharmaceutical companies meet regulatory serialization mandates at predictable price points. For between $25,000 and $50,000, Vantage Consulting Group conducts an initial engagement that typically includes definition and gap identification; "as is/to be" analysis; production line impact analysis; capital cost review/recommendations; and vendor definitions.

Unlike open-ended consulting engagements that can cost hundreds of thousands of dollars, Streamlined Serialization is designed to apply exactly the right amount of highly experienced consulting when and where it's needed within a carefully prepared serialization plan. Vantage Consulting's technical staff collaborates with their client's program team to keep projects on track, focused on business objectives, and with minimal loss of revenue from production line downtime.

The CMO/CPO offer is ideal for companies that have in-house engineering resources but not specific serialization knowledge. The customer receives highly experienced guidance without investing in its own serialization staff. For companies without in-house engineering resources, Vantage Consulting also offers comprehensive turnkey serialization services for managing a serialization project from inception to conclusion.

With between 20 and 30 years of relevant industry experience, Vantage Consultant Group's serialization specialists' knowledge encompasses all elements of strategic planning and technical implementation. They will
scope out serialization projects from inception through implementation, identifying benchmarks throughout the project. Vantage's Streamlined Serialization process has been demonstrated to reduce overall project schedules by at least three months and cut line downtimes in half - essentially paying for itself.

Vantage Consulting Group can also provide project consulting and management services to keep the program on track. Under the CPO/CMO program, additional engineering services, such as complete program management, authoring of documents (RFP's, URS's, validation, testing protocols and SOP's) and personnel for execution of all protocols are available at a preferred rate.

"Streamlined Serialization for CMO/CPO is about knowledge, not bodies. Our objective is to be there with collaborative guidance on serialization projects when clients need us - not to move in and be part of their staff," said John Jordon, vice president of business strategies, Vantage Consulting Group. "They have competent resources for engineering and validation, so they don't need or want that. We're providing the supplemental experience they need to make their in-house expertise most effective. We want to pay for ourselves and then be out the door until the next time they need us."
