It sometimes feels like as soon as we implement new chain of custody technology, there’s already a better one out there. While tech companies increasingly push artificial intelligence models to the public, we want to cover 4 trends to look out for in 2023 that your business can implement tomorrow.

Automated Online Ordering

The days of excel sheets and clipboards are over. Online ordering systems are simple, user-friendly, and accessible from anywhere, as long as you have your laptop or smartphone. 

At Lab Logistics, we go above and beyond to provide customized address books that cater to your business needs, as well as confirmation emails throughout the process to inform you when:

  • The order is received
  • The order is picked up
  • The order is delivered 

With online ordering and automation, your days of tracking down missing shipments will, like the clipboard, become a thing of the past.

Internet of Things (IoT)

We live in a world where the Internet of Things (IoT) is everywhere. IoT connects goods with packaging and transportation, effectively eliminating silos. It also helps us predict trends or identify issues so we can pivot.

Your driver is on his normal route when his GPS service alerts him of a slow down ahead, and also suggests an alternative route that will get him there on time. That is how IoT can help medical couriers stay on track and on time.

Transportation Management Systems 

Transportation management systems are closely related to IoT in that they provide organization, management, and tracking all for your transportation hub.

Let’s say you have 10 errands to run. Where do you start? What order do you go in?

At Lab Logistics, our optimized route tracking system uses advanced GPS technology to get the driver from points A through Z without having to zig zag in between stops. 

Supply Chain Integration

Now that you know how to make your deliveries more efficient, you need to also ensure you are well stocked and ready with the proper tools. Using online ordering systems that utilize bar code scanning technology can help streamline your inventory management. 

Technology will continue to evolve, and we hope, to help streamline our business functions. For medical laboratories, clinics, and hospitals, implementing online inventory management systems, optimizing driving routes, and tracking a specimen sample in minutes rather than hours can take your business to the next level in 2023.
