The winners, CYBRA, Digimarc, Mojix, and Shipcom, are industry leaders from around the globe. They were selected based on their outstanding performance in Automatic Identification & Data Capture (AIDC), Blockchain, Internet of Things (IoT), and Radio Frequency Identification (RFID).
Outstanding Innovations in AIDC and Blockchain
In the AIDC category, CYBRA emerged victorious for its partnership with a healthcare services company. The collaboration leveraged cold-chain technology for specialty pharmaceutical products. CYBRA’s innovative “over the air” labeling solution simplified the shipping process, promoting sustainability and efficiency in supply chains.
Digimarc clinched the Blockchain category for their collaboration with IOTA, creating a Digital Product Passport (DPP) blueprint. The project aligns with some of the European Union’s initiatives, including the use of open standards and decentralized architectures. The DPP blueprint showcases the company’s sustainability credentials and positions them favorably in the European market.
Winners in RFID and IoT Categories
Mojix, the RFID category winner, successfully implemented RFID-based returnable asset tracking for Tosca, a supply chain packaging solutions provider. This improvement led to more accurate stock levels and better consistency across all of Tosca’s maintenance sites in Europe, marking a significant advancement in supply chain management.
Shipcom Wireless, the IoT segment winner, collaborated with the South Dakota Department of Health to streamline the management of critical public safety teams. The resulting digitized and automated Inventory Management Solution has significantly reduced labor-intensive management efforts, leading to cost savings and data-driven insights.
