How can you convert your products into communication platforms and cost reduction tools? By making them a part of the Internet of Things (IoT).

Using temperature-sensing smart labels and inexpensive NFC tags, you can extend product safety and efficiency efforts beyond the shipping dock while also building a communication bridge to your customers.

  • Combat diversion and counterfeits while also improving forecasting
  • Identify and engage with end-customers to learn their needs and offer re-order options
