The year in review: TSS’s most-read blog articles of 2021
1. Visibility and automation: reducing disruption due to temperature excursions
The Covid-19 pandemic has placed a global spotlight on pharmaceuticals and the importance of temperature control. The large-scale vaccination programs being rolled out across the world depended on operators and distributors being able to monitor and manage temperatures effectively. It has also shown just how challenging this can be. Automation can help streamline the process from end to end: automatically uploading temperature data, preventing gaps in data, and providing live visibility. Read article.
2. Data is the key to better pharma supply chain temperature performance
Data is an essential requirement for improving supply chain processes. But that doesn’t mean that simply collecting more of it will instantly lead to reductions in waste, increases in efficiency, and lower excursion rates. Taking a more targeted approach will help you turn supply chain data into insights that can help you understand precisely what is happening at every stage of your pharmaceutical supply chain—having more visibility and automating more of the manual processes that characterize activities at these warehouses or sites cannot only increase site efficiency but reduce the number of costly quarantines too.

3. Which way is blowing? IoT on temperature monitoring
The life science industry is always looking for ways to improve reliability and efficiency across the supply chain. New technologies for tracking and temperature logging hold great potential, but which to choose? Read the full article here.
4. Automating temperature management for enhanced supply chain reliability and efficiency
Temperature management is a vitalprocess for pharma, but one where the standard process is in need of an upgrade. In every area of modern life, wireless solutions and automation are driving huge gains in productivity and providing real-time insight into howlong-established processes can be improved. For temperature management, the enhanced visibility and time savings that seamless monitoring and live data can bring are likely to lead directly to cost savings. And with over $34 million being spent annually on handling temperature excursions and the wasted products that can result from them, any savings made here are going to have a significant impact on revenue.

5. A better way? How can we take the next step to automate clinical trials?
Automation, IoT, and a range of digital solutions remove ingrained inefficiencies and open new opportunities to create better outcomes for patients. Although they can often be confused, digitization and automation are fundamentally different. We share three of the routes Evan Hahn, VP North America at TSS, identified as great ways for clinical professionals to begin unleashing the transformative power of automation onto their supply chains.
