John Wirthlin and Daniel Dombach know the pharmaceutical industry well. They also know technology and how to apply it pragmatically across time- and temperature-sensitive operations, such as the pharmaceutical supply chain.
Both are spearheading initiatives with pharma manufacturers, wholesalers, and distributors to help fix the current inventory management, track and trace, and compliance issues disrupting supply chains and eroding trust among clinicians, patients, partners and industry regulators. They’re also plugged in with industry research bodies such as the Axia Institute for proof-of-concept projects intended to validate proposed solutions.
Over the past couple of years, John and Daniel have provided clear-cut evidence that fixed industrial scanning, machine vision, RFID and other sensing platforms can solve the business problems that traditional barcode systems can’t on their own. They’re also demonstrating that such solutions aren’t as complex to deploy and manage as they once were.
