Introducing DSCSA Compliance Packages

Our packages will help with EPCIS data exchange with your vendors, capture data from traceable items in receiving, reconcile discrepancies, manage quarantined items, track traceable items across transfers and returns to your primary vendor, include six years of data retention, and deliver reporting around all of it.

• Why harness SureCost for DSCSA compliance?

       inter-company transfers.

     • Flexible quarantine options keep you safe from audits and fines, while keeping your team moving.

     • Keep your audit risk low and keep vendors accountable by reconciling your vendor data with your inventory scanned at receiving.

       (Better yet, we’ll hold your data for you for the six years at no extra cost!)
