Are you Prepared for the New Norm?
Brace for new demands and change as consumer behaviors and expectations have FOREVER changed. 75% of U.S. companies have experienced supply chain disruptions in recent weeks.
Social distancing and self-quarantining have become the norm. China has experienced a 20% growth in home food deliveries. U.S. trends suggest the same is occurring across all forms of direct-to-consumer food delivery from online grocery to fast food delivery. “Contactless deliveries” are being deployed by many of the top food delivery services. Projections indicate these lifestyle changes are here to stay.
Our food and drugs are being left unattended at our doorstep creating new quality, safety and efficacy concerns just as upstream supply chains are experiencing delays, diversions and other challenges long before the last mile.
Joe Battoe, CEO of Varcode, encourages the supply chain community to take action.
“Right now, is the time for us to implement new supply chain safety measures to solve these problems.”
“All food and drug products are subject to risk, but none more so than temperature sensitive drugs (think, imminent vaccines) and perishable food products being left at the doorstep. The risk for contamination, degradation and temperature excursion is growing.”
Varcode is working with many food, drug and home delivery companies to address these immediate problems and position them for success in this new normal.
Battoe continued, “Our revolutionary “Smart Barcodes” uniquely combine time and temperature monitoring with track & trace, uploading critical location and product status data to our cloud-based system capable of returning preventative product-saving care instructions to the field as well as real-time alerts via email and SMS to concerned stakeholders.”
Varcode’s solution requires no new hardware or software and implementation is quick and easy. Currently, Varcode is the lowest cost digital solution in the market, making them ideal for end-to end coverage, including the last mile or even the doorstep.
