NORTH READING, MA--(Marketwired - Apr 27, 2016) -  TraceLink Inc., the world's largest track and trace network for connecting the life sciences supply chain and eliminating counterfeit prescription drugs from the global marketplace, today announced financial results for the first quarter of 2016. Growth highlights include:

"We're off to a fantastic start in 2016, with momentum accelerating rapidly as compliance deadlines near for life sciences companies, and competitors are increasingly unable to deliver on the promises they've been making," said Shabbir Dahod, president and CEO of TraceLink. "Time is running out, and as companies evaluate their options, they recognize that TraceLink is the most proven solution with the most live customers and the highest performance benchmarks. While competitors are trying to run tests with pilot programs, TraceLink's live global pharmaceutical manufacturing customers are already operating at scale, shipping serialized products into eight countries. In addition, TraceLink's US pharmacy and hospital customers now depend on our Product Track software to ensure that more than 2,000 of their dispensing locations are in compliance under DSCSA. Our track record stands out because we are proven to offer the lowest total cost, the shortest timeframe for achieving compliance, and the least risk of ensuring drug supply to patients."
