Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA) ensures the user signing in has not stolen credentials from another user.  When MFA is enabled, the user must request a six-digit code as part of the log-in process.  A user preference determines whether the code is received by Email or in a text message.  The code is then entered and validated before the user is granted access to the Slingshot platform.  If the code is lost (e.g., caught in a spam filter), the user can request another.  After several consecutive codes are issued, without a successful sign in, the user’s account is locked and the security administrator is notified.

Slingshot’s inventory management module now records and distributes drug pedigree information in compliance with the Drug Supply Chain Security Acts (DSCSA).  A Transaction statement with the seven required DSCSA assertions and Transaction history Information documenting changes in ownership is captured for each lot received.  The review and acceptance of pedigree information is required before finalizing a receipt. 
For outbound shipments, a Transaction Statement is “e-signed” as part of the shipment confirmation process.  This statement and associated transaction histories are forwarded with the shipping documentation (electronic and/or paper).
