Bluetooth Data Loggers: It’s All About the Data!

Posted by Carissa Smith on January 02,2020

There are many benefits of using Bluetooth Data Loggers, but really the most impactful of which is the actionable insights the data provides. Whether you’re in the pharmaceutical, food, life science, or many other industries, having that wealth of data at your fingertips will revolutionize the way you ship your products.

If you’re currently tracking all of your temperature data manually then you know it takes a ton of time and effort and leaves a lot of room for human error.

With Bluetooth Data Loggers, you don't actually have to have physical access to the logger so you can download all of the data in a matter of seconds without removing it from the packaging. That data then gets serialized and organized into groups so you can push the information where and to whom it needs to go. This gives you the ability to build more sophisticated workflows on the backend to reduce the workload for your end-users.

Next-Level Data Analysis

Once you have your data in machine-readable format, you are able to quickly analyze the data. You can then extract trends to give you further insight into the temperature your product has been exposed to. This empowers your logistics team to gain a full understanding of your cold chain from end to end and make informative business decisions.

For example, let's say you're shipping something from Seattle to Miami and you process the shipment every week for 10 years. One of the trends that you’re looking for is why do certain shipments fail? With the data, you’re able to determine that shipments that leave on Wednesdays fail.

Why is this?

It could be something as simple that on Wednesdays, shipping with FedEx is the cheaper option, so that’s what your logistics team has been using. However, they go a different route from UPS which you use the other four days of the week, and that is what’s causing it to fail. It’s an oversimplified example, but accounting for all variables and extracting anomalies at scale is a huge benefit from companies who are trying to stay under budget while protecting the integrity of their brand.

Keeping Your Data Secure

Obviously when you’re managing this much sensitive information, you want to make sure it’s secure and uncompromised. So how secure are Bluetooth Data Loggers?

At a high level, these loggers follow the same security best practices as any computer or device on a network. Just like your web browser, the data is encrypted and your credentials are secure. 

Then there’s 21 CFR Part 11, which is a set of regulations about how a data system needs to be set up securely so that nobody can maliciously change data. All of our Bluetooth technology is compliant with these regulations and will continue to evolve to meet these standards.

Another security feature coming in the near future is the incorporation of digital signatures with blockchain. By generating digital signatures of the logged data, it will be publicly available and verifiable to ensure that all transactions are made by the rightful owners. You can rest assured that all of your data is completely protected.
