Russia Reporting Update

rfxcel, Whose Technology Serializes 70% of Russia’s Pharma Market, Quickly Adapts to Major Changes to Reporting Requirements

Russia’s Drug Circulation Monitoring System (MDLP) has developed new reporting requirements after experiencing technical problems that created serious issues in the country’s pharma supply chain. One of the most important changes is to Form 703, which facilitates foreign importation to Russia.

As the leader in Russian compliance, we acted immediately and now support the MDLP’s new transaction requirements. To learn more about the changes and how to comply with Russia’s strict track and trace requirements, contact Victoria Kozlova, rfxcel’s General Director in Moscow, at vkozlova@rfxcel.com.

I believe rfxcel is uniquely positioned globally to ensure products are safely delivered to patients and consumers, because of our agility and ability to respond to customer needs in today’s ever-changing environment.”

rfxcel Named NCET 2020 Software Company of the Year, Will Be Recognized at NCET Tech Showcase and Awards Gala

View Release

RENO, NEVADA, UNITED STATES, August 24, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — rfxcel, the global leader in supply chain track and trace solutions, has been named 2020 Software Company of the Year by Nevada’s Center for Entrepreneurship and Technology (NCET). rfxcel and winners in 19 other categories will be recognized at the NCET Tech Showcase and Awards Gala, tentatively scheduled for fall 2020.

NCET is a member-supported nonprofit organization that produces educational and networking events to help people explore business and technology. Its annual Tech Awards, now in its 13th year, celebrate people and companies in Northern Nevada that have enhanced the growth and prestige of the technology community. The diverse categories range from logistics, manufacturing, and aviation to medical/health services, creative services, and brewing/distilling.

rfxcel’s award, Software Company of the Year, is presented to the company that demonstrates innovation in software design and implementation. To be considered for nomination, companies must have also achieved significant sales/revenue growth and employee growth. Other criteria include patent, R&D, and intellectual property activity, as well as participation in industry activities such as standards setting, advocacy, and education.

CEO Glenn Abood, who founded rfxcel in 2003 with Chief Strategy Officer Jack Tarkoff, said the award is especially meaningful because the company was a relative newcomer to Nevada. “To be nominated — let alone to win — so soon after coming to Reno is a real honor,” he said. “We moved our headquarters here a little more than a year ago because we knew it was one of the fastest growing hubs for technology in the country and was conducive to company growth. We felt we fit in right from the start; to be recognized by NCET and our Nevadan peers is a great compliment. It’s a great feeling.”

Abood added that rfxcel intends to continue hiring locally for positions in software engineering, technical support, professional services, sales and marketing, accounting, human resources, training and development, and legal.

The award comes as rfxcel marks its 17th year of developing leading-edge supply chain software solutions. It kicked off 2020 by releasing the latest version of its award-winning rfxcel Traceability System software platform, its signature full-stack solution that enables true end-to-end supply chain traceability, environmental monitoring, and analytics from anywhere in the world. Successes in 2019 included entering the consumer goods industry, conducting major pharma pilots for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Brazilian government, enhancing its powerful Integrated Monitoring solution, launching a Mobile Traceability solution, tripling the size of its team in Russia, and increasing its presence in the Middle East. Locally, it held its annual User Group at Reno’s Grand Sierra Resort, where it hosted dozens of customers and other industry actors.

“We have accomplished a lot since we’ve been in Reno,” Abood said. “We’re building a strong team here and are glad to be part of the community. It’s just a great place for rfxcel to be as we continue to grow our operations in the United States and around the world. We thank NCET for recognizing us, and we look forward to seeing everybody at the Tech Showcase and Awards Gala later this year.”

rfxcel Named Russia CRPT Software and Integration Partner for Nine Industries

Reno, Nevada, July 21, 2020. rfxcel, the global leader in digital supply chain track and trace solutions, today announced that it had once again been named an official software and integration partner with Russia’s Center for Research in Perspective Technologies (CRPT), which operates the country’s National Track and Trace Digital System (Chestny ZNAK). It was named an official integration, software, and tested solution partner for medications in April.

The company earned official partner status for nine industries: footwear, tires, light industry, perfumes, dairy, bottled drinking water, bicycles, wheelchairs, and tobacco. rfxcel is now an official partner for 10 of the 11 industries for which the CRPT has chosen partners.

Furthermore, at the time of this release, rfxcel was the only software and integration partner for five industries: footwear, tires, light industry, wheelchairs, and bicycles. In the remaining industries — perfume, dairy, and bottled water — rfxcel is either the sole partner a category or one of only two or three.

The new designations solidify rfxcel’s status as the leader in Chestny ZNAK. rfxcel CEO Glenn Abood said the continued success with the CRPT and Chestny ZNAK demonstrated that the company’s strategy for the Russian market was working. “We have always been the leader in supply chain compliance,” he said, “and we committed ourselves to extending that legacy to Russia. We’ve been there right from the start, growing our team in Moscow and honing our solutions to meet the strict compliance requirements. Our official partner designations in 10 industries shows we’re leading in Russia.”

Victoria Kozlova, rfxcel’s general director of Russian operations, said the new partner designations could be attributed to three things. “It’s the quality of our solutions, the support we’re getting from across rfxcel, and the quality of our team in Moscow,” she said. “We’re one of only a very few solutions providers with active implementations in Russia. That says a lot about what we’ve accomplished over the last two years. We’re also working to parlay this success with our strategies in the Commonwealth of Independent States.”

Enacted by Federal Law No. 425-FZ on December 29, 2017, Chestny ZNAK was designed to protect consumers by keeping fake and substandard products out of the market. As envisioned, by 2024 it will transform the Russian supply chain and affect virtually every industry, from pharmaceuticals to baby food. The CRPT, a public-private partnership, has managed Chestny ZNAK since 2018.

rfxcel Teams with ICRC for Compliance, Supply Chain Security

Reno, NV, June 23, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — rfxcel, the global leader in supply chain track and trace solutions, today announced that it has teamed with the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) to ensure it remains compliant with global pharmaceutical regulations and can secure all facets of its complex supply chain, including the safety of its staff.

The ICRC will deploy rfxcel’s Compliance Management (rCM) and Serialization Processing (rSP) solutions to comply with existing and upcoming pharmaceutical regulations in every country where it sends its humanitarian action and support. Specifically, the ICRC will focus rCM and rSP on its supply chains in Switzerland, Jordan, and Pakistan. Switzerland’s laws will align with the EU’s Falsified Medicines Directive (FMD); Pakistan and Jordan are anticipated to enact regulations in 2020 and 2025, respectively, though that timing may change.

Based in Geneva, Switzerland, the ICRC is an independent, neutral organization that provides humanitarian aid for victims of armed conflict and other situations of violence. It responds to emergencies while promoting respect for international humanitarian law. It employs 20,000 professionals who work in approximately 100 countries.

rfxcel will also provide a six-month pilot of its innovative Integrated Monitoring (rIM) solution, which can track more than a dozen environmental variables in real time on land, sea, and air. rIM’s Cluster Mapping technology will help the ICRC with actionable data to reroute or recall shipments if a problem arises.

“Since the beginning of this project, we knew that humanitarian action has one of the most demanding supply chains in terms of resilience, adaptation, and security,” rfxcel Sales Director Anne-Marie Cehovic said. “It’s an honor for rfxcel to help ICRC achieve supply chain visibility and protect its brand reputation with our regulatory compliance and traceability solutions. We look forward to a rewarding partnership.”

Humanitarian action is a challenging undertaking, so the ICRC wants to go beyond regulatory compliance. rfxcel’s solutions will make its shipments more efficient and yield cost savings through optimized stock visibility. As supply chain visibility is crucial to the ICRC’s operations, rCM and rSP will also ensure that the right drugs, food, and other materials are delivered at the right time to the right place, ensuring data and platform integrity.

rfxcel Working to Reduce Supply Chain Issues

KTVN Channel 2 News

A Reno company is using its cloud-based technology to improve inefficiencies in the supply chain. As raw materials and goods make their way from one place to another, rfxcel Corporation uses Integrated Monitoring, or RIM, to track its delivery.

“It helps avoid counterfeits, helps to avoid out-of-stocks, and helps ensure that your ingredients and raw materials are going to be there at the plant when you need them,” Glenn Abood, Founder and CEO of rfxcel Corporation said.

The technology is similar to what people use to track online orders as they’re delivered. Each item has a serial number or lot code that gets scanned along its delivery route.

“We, today, deal with pharmaceutical companies, manufacturers, wholesalers, dispensers, we also deal with food and beverage manufacturers,” Abood said.

Abood says the transportation industry is doing a good job of keeping up with demand but that there are other problems with the supply chain.

“The challenge has been that, in the supply chain, there are outages,” Abood said. “There are certain parts of the supply chain that aren’t functioning as well as they should.”

The company uses RIM to track finished goods as they go from the manufacturer to distribution centers and eventually to the market. For the past few months, the bigger focus has been on raw materials that travel from their origins to the manufacturers. He says that is even more important in a global market.

“They might know who they bought it from, directly, but where did that company get the product from?” Abood said. “Was it impacted by what’s going on in China? Was it impacted by other global shortages?”

He says the tracking helps everyone from start to finish. Manufacturers are better-equipped to handle inventory issues and they can make changes to who their suppliers are, if necessary. He says that can help prevent counterfeit products. That is something that can give consumers more confidence.

“If we go to a drug store and by the medicine that we need, that that medicine is in fact genuine,” Abood said.

rfxcel moved its headquarters to Reno in November, 2018. Part of the city’s appeal was the quality of life, proximity to the Bay Area and the University of Nevada. Since then, it has grown but Abood says that has slowed down since the COVID-19 pandemic began. The company has about 100 employees around the world, including more than a dozen in Reno. Many of those are homegrown.

“It’s always a challenge to find the right people and we’re very selective but we have found some great people in the Reno area and we’re really excited about being here,” Abood said.

The company and its employees are also adjusting to the emergency. Most of its workers are doing their jobs, remotely.

“Because we’re a cloud-based company anyway, our software, our applications, our customers use the product in the cloud and therefore, for us it’s not been too difficult to work from home,” Abood said.

rfxcel Becomes Official Partner with Russia’s CRPT

April 15, 2020 Reno, NV. rfxcel, the global leader in supply chain track and trace solutions, has been named an official integration, software, and tested solution partner with Russia’s Center for Research in Perspective Technologies (CRPT). The CRPT is a public-private partnership that manages Russia’s National Track and Trace Digital System, known as Chestny ZNAK.

Members of rfxcel’s Moscow-based team met with CRPT to demonstrate its signature full-stack solution, rfxcel Traceability System, answer technical questions, and share examples of compliance reports. After an internal evaluation, CRPT notified rfxcel that it had validated its solution and designated the company as an official integration, software, and tested solution partner on its website.

rfxcel CEO Glenn Abood said the success with the CRPT was the culmination of a lot of hard work in Russia. “We decided quite some time ago to commit ourselves to leading in Russia,” he said. “Today, we’re one of a very few supply chain solution providers with active implementations in the country, and we’re working with more and more companies as our reputation for ironclad compliance and supply chain management grows. We’ve tripled the size of our team there over the last year, and I can’t say enough about what they’ve accomplished.”

Enacted by Federal Law No. 425-FZ on December 29, 2017, Chestny ZNAK was designed to protect consumers by keeping fake and substandard products out of the market. As envisioned, by 2024 it will transform the Russian supply chain and affect virtually every industry, from pharmaceuticals, footwear, and photography equipment to tires and tobacco. The CRPT has managed Chestny ZNAK since November 2018.

“It all comes down to the quality of our solutions, the companywide support we’re getting, and the knowledge and skill of our people here,” said Victoria Kozlova, rfxcel’s general director of Russian operations. “We speak the language. We know the regulations inside and out. We understand how to meet customers’ requirements while ensuring they’re fully compliant with Russia’s strict regulations.”

CEO Abood concluded by putting the accomplishment into context. “Though this is an exciting time for us in Russia, it comes at a time when ‘business as usual’ has been turned on its head due to COVID-19. All our teams are working to keep supply chains moving where they need to go, including hospitals, clinics, supermarkets, and other critical locations. And we recently joined the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition, donating our rfxcel Integrated Monitoring and Accurate Immunization Management solutions. We are working hard to be part of the solution.”

Mr. Wong can also answer questions about our response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company is headquartered in the United States and has offices in the EU, Britain, Latin America, Russia, the Middle East, India, Japan, and the Asia-Pacific region.

rfxcel Joins the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition

Washington, D.C., April 6, 2020. rfxcel, the global leader in supply chain track and trace solutions, today announced that it has joined the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition, a collaborative private-industry response to novel coronavirus that brings together leading organizations in healthcare, technology, academia, the nonprofit sector, and government.

The coalition’s goal is to save lives through data analytics. Gathering real-time data is key to learning about COVID-19 and how to best deliver healthcare to protect public health.

The coalition operates according to five guiding principles:

    • All members participate for the benefit of the country only. No organization will be given preferential advantage.
    • All members cooperate and openly share their plans.
    • Members will not be paid for working with the coalition. Each member brings its own resources; no money is exchanged.
    • Verbal agreements will suffice to get the coalition’s work started.
    • If an organization agrees to these terms and conditions, it can join the coalition.

rfxcel has been developing industry-leading track and trace software since 2003, longer than any company serving the life sciences and the business of government. Keeping with the coalition’s wish for members to bring their unique assets to support industry stakeholders, front-line responders, and federal, state, and local government organizations in the COVID-19 pandemic, the company is offering two of its cutting-edge supply chain solutions, rfxcel Integrated Monitoring (rIM) and Accurate Immunization Management (AIM), as part of its contribution to the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition.

rfxcel Integrated Monitoring (rIM)

rIM uses Internet of Things (IoT) technology to monitor the environmental condition of products in real time as they move through supply chains on land, sea, and air. It is widely used in pharmaceutical cold chains to monitor high-value medical supplies, including vaccines. rIM communicates with small IoT-enabled devices embedded with products and sends updates and alerts about more than a dozen environmental conditions, such as temperature, humidity, light, orientation (tilt), and shock. It also monitors location, so it can alert users about route diversions and ensure logistics providers remain in compliance with delivery agreements. It can monitor at both the top level (e.g., case, pallet, truck) and the item level (e.g., syringe, packet, bottle), yielding true supply chain traceability and transparency.

Accurate Immunization Management (AIM)

AIM is an automated, cloud-based solution that tracks the dispensing of vaccines — including potential vaccines for COVID-19 — in the supply chain and seamlessly integrates with critical healthcare applications such as Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and Immunization Information Systems (IIS). It empowers healthcare practitioners to view patients’ immunization records in real time, manage accurate administering, monitor inventory, and safely dispense the right vaccines to the right patient at the right time. AIM utilizes Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) rules and guidance for vaccine combinations, special populations, and required intervals between vaccines, and adheres to U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) rules for dispensing. Because it is automated, users can be up and running with virtually no training, ensuring quick implementation in mission-critical locations.

Greg Moulthrop, vice president of rfxcel’s Worldwide Government Group, and his Washington, D.C.-based team of government and supply chain experts are leading the company’s efforts to bring rIM and AIM to the coalition’s fight against COVID-19. rfxcel will support the Supply Chain Working Group, facilitated by MITRE Corporation, to bring its technology to coalition members. Working across government and in partnership with industry, MITRE and its public-private partnerships and federally funded R&D centers tackle challenges to the safety, stability, and well-being of the country.

“We are proud to be a member of the COVID-19 Healthcare Coalition and donate our time and resources to addressing this public health crisis,” Moulthrop said. “rfxcel’s Worldwide Government Group is focused on mission readiness and develops tools to protect the supply chain against disruptions for the most vulnerable products. We care about protecting the public; in this case, we must protect the health and well-being of people across the country — across the world — against COVID-19, which is revealing how much we rely on robust, secure supply chains. With rIM and AIM, rfxcel can do its part to safeguard people and, we hope, hasten both the end of COVID-19 and the recovery of our communities and economy.”

rfxcel CEO Glenn Abood said the company was honored to join the coalition and was eager to get to work. “We had been considering how we could do more to help defeat COVID-19,” he said. “We feel that our everyday work is helping by keeping supply chains moving in the pharma, food and beverage, and consumer goods industries, but we felt we could do more. When Greg told us about the coalition, we were all in.

“rIM is an award-winning environmental monitoring solution that’s proved itself over and over in the pharma industry,” Abood continued, “so it was a logical choice to share with the coalition. And AIM, which we released late last month, was a no-brainer. We had been working on it for a while and successfully tested it with some of our major customers. We were excited about releasing it, but we couldn’t have imagined the timing would coincide with COVID-19. We hope deploying it to the coalition will make a difference.”

rfxcel Announces Accurate Immunization Management Solution to Aid in the Fight Against COVID-19

March 23, 2020. rfxcel, the longest-tenured track and trace solutions provider in the life sciences industry, today announced the launch of Accurate Immunization Management (AIM), an automated, cloud-based solution that tracks the dispensing of vaccines in the supply chain and seamlessly integrates with critical healthcare applications such as Electronic Health Records (EHRs) and Immunization Information Systems (IIS).

“AIM ensures that the right patient gets the right vaccine at the right time,” rfxcel CEO Glenn Abood said. “It can track any vaccine, including potential vaccines for COVID-19, in any supply chain, monitor inventory, and facilitate safe, timely delivery to any location. At a time when the world is depending on supply chains to function at peak performance, AIM is a tool to get vaccines properly delivered and dispensed.”

Abood, who founded rfxcel in 2003 with Chief Strategy Officer Jack Tarkoff, emphasized that AIM utilizes a configurable rules engine and automated inventory reordering to ensure that vaccines are always on hand and are delivered as intended.

“We designed AIM to be compliant, fast, and flexible in any country,” Abood said, adding that it will comply with laws in the European Union, China, Russia, Asia, India, and the Middle East. “It will never run counter to what regulations tell us we need to do to safeguard people and the worldwide vaccine supply chain,” he said.

The announcement of AIM comes as rfxcel is marking its 17th year of developing leading-edge supply chain software solutions. Last month, it released the latest version of its rfxcel Traceability System (rTS) software platform. rTS 7.0 continues the award-winning legacy of the company’s signature full-stack solution, enabling true end-to-end supply chain traceability, environmental monitoring, and analytics from anywhere in the world. Highlights of 2019 included conducting major pharma pilots for the FDA and the Brazilian government, enhancing its powerful Integrated Monitoring (rIM) solution, launching a MobileTraceability solution, tripling the size of its team in Russia, increasing its presence in the Middle East, and entering the consumer goods industry.

“We’ve been working on AIM for a while and have successfully tested it with some of our major customers,” Abood said. “We’ve been excited about releasing it, but we couldn’t imagine the timing would coincide with COVID-19 and a ‘new normal’ for businesses everywhere. In these new circumstances, and with the situation changing hour to hour, we think AIM will strengthen rfxcel’s commitment to being a responsible and proactive member of the global business community.”

Abood concluded by saying that rfxcel was operating at full capacity and was in constant contact with its employees and customers. “We are keeping supply chains moving in critical industries, including pharmaceuticals, food and beverage, worldwide government, and consumer goods,” he said.

The company is headquartered in the United States and has offices in the EU, Britain, Latin America, Russia, the Middle East, India, Japan, and the Asia-Pacific region.

rfxcel Releases Latest Version of Its rTS Platform

February 18, 2020. rfxcel, the global leader in supply chain track and trace solutions, today announced that it will release the latest version of its rfxcel Traceability System (rTS) software platform on February 18, 2020. rTS 7.0 continues the award-winning legacy of rfxcel’s signature full-stack solution, enabling true end-to-end supply chain traceability, environmental monitoring, and analytics from anywhere in the world.

The announcement comes as the company marks its 17th year of developing leading-edge supply chain software solutions. With rTS 7.0, rfxcel anticipates building on the successes it enjoyed in 2019, which included entering the consumer goods industry, conducting major pharma pilots for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration and the Brazilian government, enhancing its powerful Integrated Monitoring (rIM) solution, launching a MobileTraceability solution, tripling the size of its team in Russia, increasing its presence in the Middle East, and hosting its annual User Group in Reno, Nevada.

rTS 7.0 can comprise up to eight discrete solutions that work in concert to harmonize, optimize, automate, and monitor virtually every aspect of supply chain operations. Though rfxcel currently provides its solutions to four industries — life sciences (pharmaceutical and medical devices), food and beverage, worldwide government, and consumer goods — the fully customizable, interoperable, and scalable nature of rTS makes it suitable for supply chain visibility and security in any industry. rTS solutions include rfxcel Integrated Monitoring for real-time cold chain traceability, Serialization Processing, Compliance Management, Raw Materials Traceability, Finished Goods Traceability, Data Analytics and Blockchain Enabler. The solutions are available in a variety of languages, which speeds implementation and boosts ease of use because people can work in their native language.

CEO Glenn Abood, who founded rfxcel in 2003 with Chief Strategy Officer Jack Tarkoff, said rTS 7.0 was the culmination of a year-long effort to make the platform more powerful and user-friendly than ever before.

“As we begin 2020 and celebrate 17 years of innovating supply chain technology and working with our customers to keep them at the forefront of their industries, we want people to know that rTS has never been better,” he said. “It has more features and capabilities than ever before, yet it’s intuitive and very easy to use. It centralizes complete supply chain control in one platform, can be accessed and controlled from virtually anywhere on Earth, and ensures companies remain informed, nimble, and compliant no matter where they do business.”

Mr. Abood added that the improved rTS 7.0 will be a boon to rfxcel as it continues its expansion into new industries and markets. “We had some major successes in the pharmaceutical industry and the government sector last year,” he said, “particularly in Russia and the Middle East, where we’ll be working with large brands and regulatory organizations. rTS 7.0 will help us solidify our position in markets around the world; in addition to Russia and the Middle East, we are leading in other key markets, such as Brazil and India.

“As we roll out rTS 7.0 and put it through its paces, we’ll be able to demonstrate what rfxcel brings to the table. Jack and I were compelled to start rfxcel when we realized that it was impossible for consumers to check the authenticity of their prescription drugs. We were born out of the desire to protect people from potentially harmful pharmaceutical products. Today, so many years later, rTS 7.0 shows why we’re one of the best supply chain traceability solution providers for companies in any industry.

rTS 7.0 will debut officially on February 18, 2020. To learn more about what it can do, contact Vice President of Marketing Herb Wong and visit rfxcel.com.
