rfxcel Fights Against Counterfeit Drugs

rfxcel a leader in patient safety through traceability offers the solution to eliminate counterfeit drugs (counterfeit medicines)

We all use medications. Since they have such a significant effect on our health, we need to know that the medicines that we buy and consume are authentic and safe.

Looking into the world of drug supply data, we can see that 10 – 15% are counterfeit drugs. Criminals aim to scam the consumers by mislabeling drugs and selling the authentic ones on the black market. For this reason, pharmaceutical industries lose hundreds of billions in profit, and over 100 000 patients lose their lives every year.

The US Government and other nations are combating these problems with regulations such as the Drug Supply Chain Security Act (DSCSA) which demands complete visibility of the drug’s journey from the manufacturer to the patient. The hope for these efforts is to eliminate counterfeit drugs (counterfeit medicines). However, increased regulations also increase complexity for such a vast and diverse supply chain. Tracking all orders and items and making their location, status, and environmental conditions visible the entire time of their supply chain journey may seem like a daunting task, but rfxcel offers a brilliant traceability solution.

With rfxcel Supply Chain Traceability Software, rfxcel enables the supply chain participants to track their products by integrating data between manufacturers, distributors and re-packagers, clinics and pharmacies. The way the tracking works is that each shipment is assigned a serial number which is scanned at every handout by the receiving party. rfxcel instantly provides a digital report with different data points about the product and its history. This data is then aggregated in a relationship hierarchy so that the recipients can gain complete visibility into every pallet, case, and bottle. Not only does this process protect manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies by disabling criminals to mislabel drugs, but it also enables patients to feel confident that their medications are authentic and safe.

Importance of Time Management in Customer Service

Effective time management and a sense of urgency bring better customer service

My father emphasized that all events are a function of timeJust as our lives are bounded by a start and end date – all activities that occur in between also have a time-sensitivity.

This lesson has a big impact on me and drives a sense of urgency in everything I do:

  • Meetings are succinct
  • Discussions are to the point
  • Schedules are managed.

I want to bring this sense of urgency to the new Customer Success  team at rfxcel.

Our 60 day implementation plan is the result of our consistency and planning. Our implementation teams are strong in setting standard artifacts, processes and industry best practices.  This ensures that we deliver value in the shortest time possible to our customers, partners and with other vendors.

We ensure to meet customer’s deadlines. We review customer progress on a weekly basis with rfxcel’s executive leadership.  If projects are behind schedule we examine them in details. Our team prescribes action plans to meet every task. And if needed, we allocate additional resources to help meet the target dates.

For a smooth and worry free transition we developed a Hyper Care Support Team to complete the implementation process. A Hyper Care process overlaps the efforts of the Implementation and Support team. This ensures proper knowledge transfer and rapid response during the critical go-live period.

I look forward to sharing our new service offerings with you and showcasing our Full Service Approach.  Just like our new implementation processes, this message is short and to the point – less than 250 words.  My father would be proud. 🙂

Sincerely,

Vikash Pushpraj

Making food safer with IoT Temperature Sensor

For Dan Ward at Ward Aquafarms, the oyster is his world. That’s why rfxcel and Verizon team provide a solution to Ward Aquafarms, making sure their oysters stay cold from ocean to plate by developing an IoT Temperature Sensor technology to monitor the products at any time and any place. Internet of Things or IoT sensor technology is connecting any device with an on and off switch to the Internet, and to each other. You can learn more about rfxcel Environmental Monitoring (IoT Technology) here.

Ward Aquafarms is a 10 acre, 1,000 cage aquaculture farm located in Megansett Harbor, North Falmouth, MA, farming Oysters, Bay Scallops, and Quahogs. Like every other respectable seafood company, the quality of their products is of paramount importance. Since it takes a lot of time to grow their product, it is essential for the product to reach the consumer in the same level of quality in which it left the farm. At that stage, companies have no control over the shipping and handling of their products,  and no way of knowing what happens to them during transit, and can only learn of any potential problems after the fact when the damage has already been done, and the product has lost its quality. rfxcel is the only serialization and traceability solution provider that provides serialization with IoT Temperature Sensor technology for monitoring the products at a unit and package level, any time and place, changing the dynamic from getting data after the fact versus getting data when the issue’s occurring, and being able to solve it real time. Real data, in real time, for a real delicacy.

About rfxcel Environmental Monitoring (IoT) Software:
rfxcel has developed the Environmental Monitoring Software which provides a rich set of over thirteen (13) monitoring capabilities or sensors to track a diverse set of industry needs. Examples of this include not only temperature monitoring but also Geo-Fencing to ensure that shipments do not deviate from predetermined routes or shipping/receiving locations. Sensor capabilities such as Device Jamming to detect if the signal is being intentionally blocked as the first step to diversion. Also, Light Monitoring (for visible and invisible light waves) to ensure that a sealed container is not opened until it arrives at the point of destination. rfxcel continuously monitors incoming data to ensure data quality with the mission to give organizations real-time insights into their supply chain process. The software sends real-time notification if a problem occurs so customers can act immediately.
