UDI labels are complex but very useful and now the FDA requires product labels that require special handling by your inventory management software. In fact, most inventory systems currently do not read or make sense of such labels and force you to deal with that as a standalone process outside of the system.

QStock’s real time integration with leading mobility partners like Zebra handhelds and printers and Bar TenderTM, the leading barcode label software provider, allows you to design and approve your labels using Bar Tender but automatically populates and prints such labels as a natural part of your process efficiently and reliably when a product is being handled either in the stockroom or during your manufacturing process.

Generate UDI labels

UDI labels contain multiple pieces of data such as product number, lot number, expiration date etc.
that are constructed together to ensure traceability throughout the supply chain. A compliant inventory system should automatically construct and produce UDI labels on demand and where your process requires.

Read and parse the UDI label

Your inventory system should be able to receive inbound products that are UDI compliant by utilizing The UDI product label upon receiving and record various pieces of data contained in the label automatically. This ability not only saves time during the receiving process but ensures that you have captured this important data in an error free manner and can use it in the subsequent steps and processes within your shop.

Track and trace UDI inventory usage and disbursements

Reading and producing UDI labels are key but are only the prerequisite to effective use of UDI in your business. The most important element of the UDI solution is the ability to track forwards and backwards the usage of such products in your operations in case of a recall.

You must be able to quickly determine what customers you might have shipped a particular device to in case of a recall. In case you utilize UDI compliant components in producing a new higher level products, you need to be able to systemically determine such assemblies and customers that might have received it. This is a very tedious and time consuming endeavor without a system that’s designed to do so.
