The managed services solution, intended for monitoring high-value items, enables pharmaceutical professionals to keep tables on critical items.

Internet-of-things (IoT) specialists Kore have introduced a comprehensive managed services solution for pharmaceutical, medical instrument and food/beverage applications. Built on Sony Network Communications Europe’s Visilion asset-tracking platform, it enables real-time condition monitoring of high-value and critical goods.

The company said it leveraged the expertise of recently acquired technology firm Integron to help life-sciences and health organizations in turnkey deployment of asset management tools. According to Kore, features include advanced trackers, user-friendly navigation, APIs capable of ERP integration, and reporting tools.

Landon Garner, senior vice president of marketing for Kore, told Outsourcing-Pharma that the Critical Asset Management technology enables users to “visualize and mitigate the risks associated with global, multi-modal supply chain operations​.”

It combines the Visilion platform from Sony with IoT managed services by Kore, and provides real-time tracking and condition monitoring for companies with high-value sensitive assets, such as temperature-controlled pharmaceuticals and critical medical devices​,” he said.

According to Bryan Lubel, executive vice president of IoT managed services at Kore, the solution solves a number of challenges associated with asset monitoring.

Passive monitoring has not been sufficient for the highly regulated nature of the connected health market and up to this point, active monitoring has been too fragmented, complicated, and costly​,” he commented. “With our experience in IoT deployments and connected devices, we’re simplifying the process for our customers, while improving their risk mitigation and operational efficiency​.”

Kore is hosting an educational webinar on Tuesday, April 21 at 2 pm EST. Titled “IoT for Medical Supply Chain Visibility,” the event will discuss how pharmaceutical companies and medical device manufacturers can keep apprised and on top of proposed US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) supply chain requirements through adopting IoT solutions.
