Helmer, ASD Healthcare, Blue Vector Systems, RF Code, and Microsoft partnered together to develop an RFID-based consignment system for Inventory Management in hospital pharmacies that dramatically reduces hospital inventory costs for the storage of high valued pharmaceuticals.
Helmer i.Series® Medical Refrigerators are an integral part of the Cubixx RFID Inventory Management Solution. These specialized refrigerators provide a constant stream of temperature and inventory data that is downloaded from the hospital pharmacy to ASD headquarters in Texas.

Just In Time inventory practices also allow for a reduction in inventory assets, as well as elimination of costly outdating of inventory.
