This globally unique solution provides a complete end to end traceability and compliance package to both commercial and government entities in an ever-increasing regulatory environment.

ProLinc® is an advanced product security and forensic traceability solution that harnesses serialization and authentication to build digital genealogies for every product, from the earliest stages of the manufacturing process, through distribution, and into the hands of the end user. Leveraging data from all areas of operations through advanced reporting allows for real time insight and holistic view into systems, efficiency, and production.

The BostonCOMPLY – Practical Compliance Automation™ is a hybrid consulting and subscription-based SaaS platform offering that delivers a comprehensive IT compliance program addressing legal and regulatory demands facing a broad range of organizations and industries, as well as operational support to help clients maintain compliance over time. BostonCOMPLY combines BostonCIO professional services, Practical Compliance Program (PCP) content library, Practical Compliance Training (PCT) video course library, and purpose-built SaaS platform, Practical Compliance Automation™ (PCA) to rapidly deliver comprehensive, auditable, and maintainable compliance programs for its customers.

The integration of the two systems provides a single turnkey solution to address key strategic processes and compliance requirements in a single pane to view, manage, and report on both data and compliance components with greater functionality and efficiency. It will enable users even greater insight into the global product supply chain, empowering greater quality control, rapid recall resolution, and manage required documentation, training, and compliance activities (including both procedure & collection of evidence) with scheduling and tracking.

“ProLinc® was designed as a seamless extension of the ERP and BI tools already in place, filling the critical gaps left behind by these systems,” said Kelly M. Smith, Senior Vice President of Ashton Potter. “Paired with BostonCOMPLY, we can provide insight and meet the needs of a wide range of industries that have a broad spectrum of federal, state and international regulatory requirements.”
