What could you do with greater workforce organization?
The pharmaceutical industry loses approximately $12B in revenue each year due to penalties and material waste. With a growing risk of counterfeit drugs, inability to verify ingredient movement history or transaction handoffs––transparency and tracking in the value chain has never been in greater demand.
A Closer Look: Pharmaceutical Case Study
Customer: Biotech company that collects and transports time-sensitive blood plasma samples from 82 donor centers.
Critical Tracking Points
- Plasma Arrival: Raw material bottles arrive at the facility, are unloaded and transferred to a facility pallet, which have to be moved to the freezer right away. The loading dock is not refrigerated, so it’s critical to move the pallets into the freezer as soon as they are unloaded.
- Plasma Excursions: At the time of production, pallets are moved to a cold sorting room (+5º C) for sorting by origin and profile. The sorted bottles are then placed on other pallets, then back into the freezer. In between, plasma bottles travel on excursions where there is a threshold for how long they can be out of the freezer.
Summary Of Tracking Needs
The company wants to track dwell time in each zone so that plasma does not sit for too long before reaching temperature threshold. They also want to capture complete movement history for seamless compliance with FDA regulations.
Providing a complete system to accurately monitor location, dwell times, condition and history, the company has experienced a reduction in re-testing, spoilage and waste, amounting to millions of dollars saved. At any time the FDA does a compliance check, a complete record of movement history is available with the click of a button, resulting in significant administrative cost savings.
