Q: Bartlomiej, a year ago Berlinger launched SmartSystem, the end-to-end condition platform for the pharmaceutical cold chain. Their smallest device, SmartMonitor SHIP S, plays a key role in realizing the full potential of the system. Can you share with us what sets this product apart and how it addresses the unique challenges faced in condition monitoring during shipping?
Bartlomiej: Thank you for having me! The SmartMonitor SHIP S is indeed a game-changer in the realm of temperature and condition monitoring during shipping. What sets this product apart is its exceptional combination of cutting-edge technology, ease of use, and robust capabilities designed to tackle the specific challenges faced in the cold chain of temperature-sensitive goods.
The SmartMonitor SHIP S incorporates a range of features that empower organizations to ensure the integrity and safety of their valuable shipments. Let us take a closer look:
1. Modular Real-Time TechnologyTM: SmartMonitor SHIP S can communicate via Bluetooth with a gateway device, in our case is SmartMonitor SHIP L or SmartMonitor SHIP M (the other two devices available in the SmartSystem portfolio), and then send the measurement data along with a wide range of supply chain events such as light detection, free fall, tilt and shock to the cloud.
This solution is unique in the market as our customers require a minimum number of gateway devices in combination with the SmartMonitor SHIP S to be able to read the measurement data from the upload into the software as real-time data. Furthermore, with Modular Real-Time™, you can make decisions at the time of shipment (alert notifications), thereby reducing waste and (associated carbon footprint), data analysis and transportation costs for samples that are quarantined after a temperature exceedance, compared to manual analysis of passive logger data after shipment, where in many cases it might be too late to salvage the drugs after shipment.
2. Easy Deployment and Usage: We understand the importance of simplicity and ease of use, especially in fast-paced logistics operations. The SmartMonitor SHIP S is developed based on the business requirements of the market and designed with user-friendliness in mind. Its compact form factor, wireless connectivity, and straightforward setup process make it effortless to deploy across diverse shipping scenarios. Our aim is to empower healthcare professionals with a solution that seamlessly integrates into their existing workflows, eliminating unnecessary complexities.
3. Comprehensive Data Management: SmartMonitor SHIP S is fully compatible with the other products in the SmartSystem portfolio, so customers have complete and accurate data and supply chain events under one umbrella, which is the SmartView platform. Customers can access detailed reports, generate comprehensive documentation, and effortlessly demonstrate compliance with regulatory and quality requirements. The system optimizes data management, freeing up valuable time for logistics teams to focus on service delivery.
In summary, the SmartMonitor SHIP S is an advanced and user-friendly solution that revolutionizes condition monitoring of products during shipping and completes the SmartMonitor family, the SmartSystem’s hardware. Its precision, real-time tracking, ease of use, comprehensive data management, and global capabilities combine to address the unique challenges faced in logistics operations.
Thank you, Bartlomiej, for shedding light on the remarkable capabilities of the SmartMonitor SHIP S. It is evident that Berlinger's commitment to innovation and addressing industry challenges is truly commendable. We eagerly anticipate the positive impact this product will have on temperature-sensitive pharmaceutical shipments worldwide.
