Cloudleaf Expands IoT Integration Partnerships for Enhanced Supply Chain Visibility
Cloudleaf, Inc., the leader in next generation digital supply chain solutions, today announced the expansion of its Internet of Things (IoT) sensor ecosystem. In recent months, the company has added several IoT sensor integrations into its ecosystem, most recently with Biotempak, Quuppa and Wiliot. Cloudleaf is the only provider of a device agnostic Digital Visibility Platform, enabling customers to integrate any sensor with Cloudleaf’s ecosystem and glean granular, holistic and real-time insight into the location and condition of assets traveling through the supply chain or at rest.
“In building our Digital Visibility Platform, it was critical to create a solution that would not require companies to rip and replace their existing tracking devices,” said Mahesh Veerina, president and CEO of Cloudleaf. “IoT devices have become a foundational element of supply chain monitoring, particularly with the growing need for unit level tracking capabilities.
Our partnerships with leading IoT sensor providers allow companies to leverage sensors that are optimized for their specific industry and use case. Furthermore, they empower our customers with a more holistic and complete picture of the supply chain, something that has become acutely critical in the midst of the pandemic and as pharmaceutical cold chains prepare to deliver an approved vaccine.”
The Digital Visibility Platform integrates device data with conditional and contextual data streams, providing real-time monitoring at the product level to provide a deeper level of granular insight that fills in gaps where location alone may fall short, such as tracking soft and hard attributes and continued monitoring when an asset is in flight. Product level tracking has become imperative in high value and regulated supply chains like food and pharmaceuticals to ensure that products safely get to their final destination in good condition. In fact, the pharmaceutical industry loses $34 billion annually due to cold chain failures and the food industry loses $218 billion.
