Best practice: Pay-per-use service solves customer problem
The advantages of the pay-per-use service are demonstrated, for example, by a European pharmaceutical manufacturer who was already using this financing model in 2018. A change in the law forced the customer to quickly add a system for legally compliant serialization to the packaging line at one of its locations. However, the company hadn’t planned a budget for the corresponding machine in that fiscal year. In order to continue with production, the company would have needed to transport the packaged products from the manufacturing facility to another location so that they could be coded there. It would have been a logistical nightmare! The customer turned to Körber and discovered the latter’s pay-per-use service to be the ideal solution.
The Track & Trace experts from the Business Area Pharma developed a flexible leasing solution for the machine that the customer required. This enabled the customer to avoid paying the high initial costs and the associated difficulties in the planning of its budget. The required machine, an ItemUnit-TE Basic, was installed at the customer’s location only a few weeks later. The customer was able to assure the production line’s continued operation, thanks to the modular system for the serialization, verification, and labeling of individual pharmaceutical sales units with a tamper-evident seal.
