Intelleflex simplifies data capture

Santa Clara, CA, US:  Intelleflex, a provider of on-demand data visibility solutions, has launched an integrated cellular-enabled, GPS-equipped multi-protocol RFID reader supported by a cloud-based information store for sharing information across the supply chain.

“The systems provide  on-demand access to actionable data for improved supply chain operations to provide a complete picture of data spanning the entire supply chain,” says Kevin Payne, senior director of marketing, Intelleflex Corporation

“The The CMR-6100 and Zest Data Services offerings will allow customers to profitably improve delivered freshness for food, ensure efficacy and quality of pharmaceuticals, and improve asset utilisation,” he says.

“Perishable products are only as good as the temperature at which they’re shipped.  Strawberries shipped at 40 degrees rather than the optimal 35 degrees can lose nine days of shelf life, or more, on a five-day trip from grower to retailer; fresh fish can lose one day of shelf life for every degree it’s kept above optimum,” the company says.

“Improper temperature management was linked to e. Coli contamination of spinach in 2006.  More recently, in 2011, proper temperature management was named in a lawsuit relating to two deaths from biopharmaceuticals that had been inadvertently frozen in shipping.

“In addition to those risks, loss of perishables due to spoilage –before they even reach the consumer – is a $35bn annual problem globally,” it says.

The Intelleflex solutions is to integrate cellular-equipped readers and cloud-based data analytics. Until now, the means to monitor and remediate the risks – as they occur – have been unavailable.

“Intelleflex’s cellular-equipped RFID reader – an industry first – enables the near real-time capture and upload of temperature information for perishables to cloud-based data services, where analytics tools will give cold chain suppliers actionable data to take practical, quick remedial action, preserving the shelf life and safety of perishable foods and the potency, efficacy and safety of medicines and vaccines,” the company says.
