Company Description

In 1985, Systech International recognized that pharmaceutical companies were facing growing pressures to become more effective in producing quality products while maintaining compliance with regulatory mandates. Suppliers supporting the industry offered technology that needed to be custom integrated and only solved a point solution. Systech developed a better way to serve the industry's real needs by introducing a complete and configurable machine vision solution with device management and information visibility as part of their productized packaging offerings.

Through innovative software development and ongoing support, Systech has changed the way companies think about their packaging needs. Systech began with machine vision tools for the pharmaceutical packaging line, which at its core, enabled customers to ensure maximum quality. Systech then introduced its line monitoring and control solution that includes automated procedural management, analytics and reporting of information. With the addition of serialization and ERP integration, Systech has evolved their offering into a complete Packaging Execution System (PES).

Because of Systech's domain expertise and significant market penetration at the packaging operations level, many industry partners have turned to them to ensure quality and regulatory compliance and to improve efficiencies for their customers' businesses. Customers in the pharmaceutical, medical devices, biotechnology, food and beverage, and healthcare industries can protect their consumers and optimize their businesses through Systech's suite of products.

With deployments throughout Europe, Asia-Pac, Central and Latin America, Canada, and the United States, Systech delivers the industry's most comprehensive Packaging Execution System designed to meet both current and future production needs. Systech products are trusted and used by many of the world's leading Fortune 500 companies.
