Success Stories


NFC Temperature Logger Field Test

In August of 2017, Chronicled started to deploy its NFC Temperature Logger in a UAE-based distribution facility for a big ten pharmaceutical brand. The Chronicled NFC Temperature Logger was deployed alongside existing market solutions and performed superiorly. 

Currently, temperature monitoring devices are large, expensive, data is not always accessible, and there is no way to certify the readings. This results in non-compliance, increased liability, loss of product and dollars, and potentially loss of life.

Chronicled's Temperature Logger technology can be affixed to packaged goods or included in cold boxes. This provides low-cost temperature tracking at every touch point between producer and consumer, and allows smartphone notifications if temperature excursions occur.
The technology platform is production ready and 21 CFR Part 11 regulatory compliance is in place.  The platform can be easily integrated with existing ERP, supply chain solutions, and data lake solutions.
