Does Surgere Only Provide RFID Tags?
No. While we have expertise in IoT-sensor (RFID) tags, that is only part of our supply chain solutions. Our IoT-sensors provide 99.9% data accuracy and fidelity to the Interius Software Platform. With the platform companies can realize complete visibility into all areas of the supply chain from container management to over-the-road transportation solutions.
Does Surgere Offer Custom Solutions?
Yes, doesn’t everyone? While the Interius platform is single tenet, meaning that only one branch of code is managed; the software was designed to be configured to meet the need of any Surgere client. No two supply chains are alike. No two visibility solutions should be the same. Surgere appreciates that supply chains need to scale and be flexible. Our software, IoT-sensors, and hardware solutions are completely scalable and flexible for client’s changing needs.
Can You Help Me Find My Stuff?
Yes! Visibility into the supply chain is what we do best. Designing solutions with our tested, vetted, and scalable technology will help you find and track your stuff and better manage your resources for efficiency and cost savings.
