Distributors and Manufacturers: Improved Visibility for the Pharmaceutical Supply Chain

pharmaceutical supply chain management

The IntelliGuard® Vendor Managed Inventory System offers RFID-enabled Controlled Temperature Cabinets for manufacturers / distributors to confidently enable consignment programs. With the IntelliGuard® Vendor Managed Inventory System you can remotely monitor inventory and track products as they are used – with no manual counting or other on-site inventory reconciliation.

  • Intended to be placed on-site at your client locations, the IntelliGuard® Vendor Managed Inventory System automatically updates inventory each time the door is closed and your product is removed.
  • You monitor inventory levels from a browser-based portal to determine minute-by-minute product usage and detect shortages against PAR.
  • The System also provides forward notifications of soon-to-expire inventory to put you in control to pull and replace inventory well before its beyond-use date.
