Custom-designed pharma-validated IoT devices

Controlant’s proprietary IoT Saga loggers are reusable and loaded with real-time monitoring sensors that track crucial parameters like temperature, humidity, and light exposure. This helps ensure that pharmaceutical products remain in perfect condition throughout their journey. Additionally, Controlant’s team regularly updates the device firmware, providing enhanced security and functionality. It’s like having a tech-savvy guardian angel for each shipment.

Advanced data analytics and cloud integration

We leverage cutting-edge data analytics to handle the mountains of data our Saga devices capture. By using machine learning algorithms, we can foresee potential supply chain hiccups, allowing companies to act early. It’s like giving your tech-savvy guardian angel a crystal ball to prevent problems before they occur!

Meanwhile, our secure, scalable cloud infrastructure allows for real-time data access and long-term storage. This means stakeholders can monitor shipments and access historical data from anywhere at any time.

Global connectivity and communication

Keeping everyone in the loop is crucial, and Controlant’s devices are equipped with multiple communication technologies to ensure global connectivity. If something goes off-track, stakeholders receive instant alerts that allow for immediate actions, so that any issues can be resolved quickly.

End-to-end quality control by design

By designing and manufacturing devices ourselves, we can implement rigorous testing and quality assurance at every stage. Also, real-world feedback drives continuous enhancements in device performance and reliability; a continuous improvement loop that keeps improving quality with every shipment.

User-friendly interfaces make a difference

The robots haven't taken over yet, so even the best technology needs to be user-friendly. Controlant ensures that our interfaces are intuitive and accessible through comprehensive dashboards, real-time tracking, and detailed reporting features. Whether you're in the office or on the go, you can stay updated. Furthermore, seamless integration with existing enterprise systems and third-party applications is made possible through robust APIs. This boosts interoperability and operational efficiency.

Extensive sustainability initiatives

Incorporating eco-friendly practices and materials in our technology is one of many ways Controlant ensures the sustainability of its solutions. Our Saga loggers are designed to consume minimal power, which extends battery life and reduces environmental impact. Whenever possible, we use recyclable and biodegradable materials in the device manufacturing processes.
