Monitoring the sensitive biotechnology supply chain

Challenges

Ensuring product integrity and security throughout the supply chain has always been a high priority for life sciences and healthcare service providers. Product portfolios evolving towards structurally more complex biotechnology drugs, stricter regulations, extended geographic coverage, increasing risk of theft and intense cost pressure is significantly raising the stakes. IoT can help.

Tracking devices and sensors in containers, warehouses, trucks and on employees enable organisations to monitor the movement of expensive, time and temperature sensitive products in real time from drug development all the way through to the patient.

How we can help

IoT helps mitigate supply chain risks and enables corrective action to be taken in the event of a problem. A single consignment lost due to a temperature excursion or theft may be worth upwards of $50million.2

IoT can also improve medication adherence, where connected medicine cabinets automate prescription renewals. And remote monitoring of medical equipment ensures it is ready to use when needed.

Our biotechnology solutions

Our comprehensive range of connected products enables you to deliver sensitive products securely.

Healthcare Platforms

Provide real-time data via a portal that can be accessed anytime and anywhere. Solutions include stock management, patient and lone worker monitoring, medication reminders, messages and alerts.

Integrated Terminals

Combine high-quality hardware with pre-configured IoT connectivity services and the compact 3G quad-band USB modem makes it easy to add IoT connectivity to a range of medical devices.

Connected Cabinets

IoT-enabled refrigeration units can report on their location, operational status and stock levels in real time, helping you keep control over medicines.

Mobile Asset Tracking

Trackers can easily be fitted to assets such as stock pallets, giving you near real-time visibility of each asset’s location from an online portal, helping you reduce losses and increase efficiency.

Fleet Management

Combines in-vehicle tracking devices with smart applications to increase operational efficiency. Our fleet management solutions can help you get more from your first response, healthcare professionals or logistics vehicles.

Cold Chain Monitoring

Monitors temperature and shelf life, at real time through the supply chain for many healthcare products, providing safety, operational efficiency and compliance.

Bespoke Solutions

We can work in partnership to develop innovative solutions that meet your global requirements.
