Pharma Associates taps Axway for EDI management

Pharmaceutical Associates has selected Axway to supply business-to-business integration (B2Bi) solutions for managing electronic data interactions among its trading partners. The maker of generic liquid pharmaceuticals is undertaking the implementation to help improve customer service.

A lack of predictability in line-item payment structure started the drugmaker's search for a system that provides improved visibility. Business affairs director Becky Ochenreider says in an announcement that she was looking for a full service, flat-fee hosted solution.

The Axway platform includes a la carte business integration support for compliance requirements and business services. Pharmaceutical Associates will use the solutions in combination with the Axway ePedigree solution that it has already implemented. Channel analytics, controlled substance ordering, track and trace, e-submissions and managed file transfer solutions also are available.
