IoT for better management across the supply chain

Inventory management

IoT enables companies to monitor the production stage, numbers, location and quality of products across the whole supply chain in real time.

This type of information can be used in a number of ways reducing the need for maintaining high levels of stock, whilst offering fresher product to customers.

Many companies are now linking real time sensor data from separately deployed IoT based networks into their enterprise resource planning systems to enhance their processes and reduce resource requirements.

If you would like to know more about CENSIS activity in this sector, let’s talk.

Food and drink

Better inventory management across the supply chain is one of the health and social care subjects explored in our CENSIS FutureTech programme.

This is an area where Internet of Things (IoT) technologies could deliver huge benefits and enhance people’s lives.
