One Network leverages cloud platform to optimize the end-to-end distribution of pharmaceuticals and other medical supplies
Dallas, Texas, September 23, 2013 — One Network, a leading provider of multi-enterprise PaaS and consumer-driven supply chain solutions, today announced the release of a new global drug fulfillment service that utilizes One Network’s cloud platform to optimize the distribution of pharmaceuticals and other critical medical supplies and equipment to clinics, hospitals, pharmacies, and patients around the globe.
The new service leverages One Network’s cloud platform, the Real Time Value Network™, to manage all aspects of the replenishment, chain of custody, and global distribution processes related to medical shipments. All potential organizations involved, including manufacturers, NGOs, government agencies, and hospitals, can track and manage demand, orders, inventory, and shipments in real time as products flow across international borders. The service enables these organizations to manage demand, supply, and logistics processes as a community of trading partners, as well as improve service delivery and maximize patient outcomes.
“Our global medical fulfillment service helps any organization and nation that distributes medicine and medical supplies, including those fighting global epidemics like HIV/AIDs, tuberculosis, and malaria, to ensure that their patients are receiving the life-saving care they need,” said Greg Brady, CEO of One Network. “One Network’s innovative multiparty cloud platform not only has the ability to dramatically improve the quality of a country’s existing distribution network, but also establishes direct new cross-border connections between patients and any organizations that supply them with aid.”
The service uses real time supply chain conditions to automatically manage all replenishment, inventory, order management, chain of custody, lot and expiration management, and logistics processes. Furthermore, the solution provides real time visibility and tracking into shipment movements from pick-up to delivery, including inbound container visibility and any required customs and compliance documentation. All services are delivered via a single system accessible anywhere in the world via an internet browser.
“Medical distribution networks today are struggling to meet challenges such as underdeveloped infrastructure, corruption and theft, and complex supply chains that require multiple companies scattered around the globe to collaborate,” added Greg Brady. “One Network’s global fulfillment service for medicine offers a way forward.”
