End-to-end visibility and condition monitoring of goods at package level; Better control of your assets in the warehouse

A smarter and safer supply chain operation. Timely information about shipment location, temperature, humidity, and other environmental factors enables you to take preventive action faster, thereby reducing risk of spoilage or contamination. Security throughout the chain of custody helps reduce on product losses (and ultimately insurance premiums) to run a more cost-effective pharma supply chain operation.

Better control of assets in the warehouse. Turn-around-times (TAT) at pharma warehouses are critical to efficient inventory management and keeping inventory holding costs low. To best utilize your warehouses, get complete control over your valuable equipment such as forklifts and other movable machinery.

Global pharma enterprises such as GlaxoSmithKline and Alere Medical rely on Roambee for their security and condition monitoring requirements. GlaxoSmithKline has partnered with Roambee for its Project Safety (read the GlaxoSmithKline case study), and Alere Medical is using Bees to prevent the spoilage of its goods.

Roambee provides end-to-end visibility and condition monitoring at a package level throughout the supply chain for the pharma industry using our Bee + BeeBeacon solution. We also deliver solutions to better utilize your warehouses through our asset monitoring solutions.

Security of goods in the warehouse and in-transit

Pilferage is a common problem in the pharma industry and no solution other than Roambee can provide end-to-end package level security in the warehouse, in-transit and through the last mile of delivery.

Learn how you can better secure your high-value pharma goods with package level monitoring throughout the distribution process with Roambee’s end-to-end supply chain security solution.

Cold chain integrity across the supply chain

Monitoring the Mean Kinetic Temperature (MKT) is critical for vaccines and cold-chain pharma shipments. As per the International Air Transport Association (IATA), 25% of vaccines reach their destination degraded due to incorrect shipping.

Current monitoring solutions such as data loggers are inadequate because they only provide a history of temperature rather than real-time temperature data. Only with real-time location and condition visibility can you take action when there is a potential or actual problem with temperature management. Further, warehouses and containers have temperature “hot spots” which means specific parcels in those zones may suffer spoilage or contamination despite data logger curves showing normalcy.

Learn how Roambee can help you monitor your cold chain operation at a package level in the warehouse and in-transit with “must-have” features such as MKT.

Zero lost sales while not overstocking

Inventory management at distribution centers is key to staying competitive in the pharma industry. Too much inventory can affect your bottom lines by adding to your holding costs while too little can put you in risk of losing your sales due to unavailability of stock at the point of sale.

To avoid lost sales, the pharma industry typically overstocks its warehouses. On average, they are running at nearly 117-231 days of inventory which is 2-3 times as much as FMCG companies as per a joint study by A.T Kearney with the Organization of Pharma Producers of India and the Indian Pharmaceutical Association.

Roambee can empower delivery on time as well as optimizing your transit times to save on inventory holding costs and run a just-in-time (JIT) operation, while still ensuring minimal risk of a lost sale due to out of stock situations.

Damage Prevention of Goods In-Transit

Pharma goods are often temperature sensitive, and fragile. Vaccines and other drugs must be packed in glass containers which can be damaged in-transit due to the excessive impact or mishandling.

Learn how our Bee’s shock and tilt sensors can help you identify the risk of damage early and prevent it.

Efficient warehousing

Pharma warehouses use portable automated machinery and expensive equipment which need to be monitored to yield highest utilization per square feet. Such assets are prone to being stolen, misplaced, or lost.

See how Roambee can improve your warehouse utilization and audit your assets with the click of a mouse – helping saving critical man-hours for your company.

Learn how Roambee can help you secure your warehouse assets such as forklifts against theft.

Roambee is your integrated Pharma visibility solution across the enterprise to reduce risk of loss, improve predictability for lean inventory management, and maintain your warehouses more efficiently.
