Secure, Trackable Data for Your Entire Manufacturing Supply Chain


In the manufacturing industry, there is a growing need to secure data, processes and devices from compromises in the supply chain. Many billions of item transactions will be securely identified, tracked and remain auditable to the appropriate governing bodies. Critical market segments are sponsoring standards and regulations which require secure processing and traceability of product data throughout the manufacturing cycle.

In document processing, such regulations include:

  • HIPAA – Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act
  • SOD – Sarbanes-Oxley Act
  • GLBA – Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act.

In addition, businesses in credit, debit, and gift card creation and personalization must comply with PCI DSS – the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards. And the US pharmaceutical supply chain is adhering to DSCSA – the Drug Supply Chain SecurityAct.

Bell and Howell’s Factory Intelligence solutions help customers comply with the standards by following the defined best practices for good planning, process and execution within any manufacturing environment. These include:

  • Identifying every item
  • Tracking every item, every step of the way
  • Validating that each item is correct
  • Taking action when needed
  • Collecting and reporting data
