Nigeria — September 12, 2022 — Chekkit Technologies today announced that its Traceability and Consumer Intelligence SaaS is now available on SAP ® Store, which recently merged with SAP App Center as the single digital marketplace for SAP and partner offerings.
By integrating with SAP Advanced Track & Trace for Pharmaceuticals, Chekkit’s Traceability and Consumer Intelligence SaaS helps Pharmaceutical Producers, Marketing Authorisation Holders (MAH), and Pharmaceutical Contract Manufacturers (CMO) comply with traceability & anti-counterfeit regulations in Nigeria and across Africa, giving them access to real-time market data, patient insights, and supply chain visibility (diversion tracking). This service allows for a real-time remote understanding of product supply chain journeys as well as data-driven decision-making using insights on product efficacy, side effects, and preferences in order to serve consumers better.
According to Dare Odumade, Founder & CEO of Chekkit, “We are bridging the gap between manufacturers and consumers using blockchain and Artificial Intelligence to generate market insights.” He further added that; “As a GS1 solutions provider, Chekkit works closely with GS1 Nigeria which is the implementation partner to The National Agency for Food and Drug Administration and Control (NAFDAC) for the track & trace policy in the country to help curb the spread of counterfeit medications. Sadly, counterfeiting is still a huge problem not just in Africa but in developing nations globally.” In conclusion, he said; “By using Chekkit’s product serialisation or Mobile Authentication Service (MAS) labels, manufacturers empower their end-users to identify original products, give product feedback on the spot, and win Chekkit-sponsored prizes by scanning with ChekkitApp or dialing our USSD shortcode. This is important because with or without an internet connection, anyone can access protection from substandard medications.”
Chekkit’s solution currently averages between 60% – 80% consumer verification rates which is 6 times the market average. In essence, Chekkit provides access to the last-mile patients and consumer insights that’s currently out of the reach of most manufacturers.
Key benefits to pharmaceutical stakeholders include;
- Protect your consumers, market share and brand reputation from counterfeits
- Comply with drug traceability regulations in Nigeria & across Africa
- Get closer to your last-mile patient, securing their love, trust, and brand loyalty
- Run sales promotions for new or under-performing OTC products
- Get a 360 degree view of your distribution and supply chain, stopping market diversions
