Lowry’s new offering, Sonaria, is a hybrid cloud and on-premise IoT platform providing Industry 4.0 capabilities for end-to-end supply chain traceability, manufacturing executing, work in process tracking, packaging automation, inventory management and asset tracking.
Sonaria is a complete supply chain solution as a service that is built on the Internet of Things and blockchain that will find, monitor, and control fixed and mobile assets, from anywhere in the world and is the next generation of enterprise-level track and trace technology for global manufacturers and suppliers.
Sonaria is a robust, flexible and intuitive solution that can track and manage virtually any element in an operation’s value chain. Only Sonaria brings together AIDC technologies, IoT and blockchain technologies, seamlessly, to deliver true business transformation.
Sonaria incorporates the Internet of Things (IoT) and blockchain technology as key elements. Both technologies are receiving considerable attention and are expected to fundamentally change the world. Currently over 78 percent of the world’s products have no way to identify themselves. This is where Automatic Identification and Data Capture (AIDC) technologies, like Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), sensors, barcodes, PLC’s and machine vision offer tremendous promise.
Using AIDC technologies, the IoT will track and manage all of the important assets and resources in the value chain and blockchain will process and manage the transactions and smart contracts providing permissioned transparency and trust across organizational boundaries, improving supply chain efficiency.
With several years of experience implementing AIDC hardware, software and solutions across a multitude of industries, no one knows more about keeping track of items using these technologies like Lowry Solutions. Their knowledge of software integration with a range of devices, protocols and other software makes them uniquely positioned to leverage the intersection of these trends.
“Sonaria can accept input from nearly any device or data source for real-time process automation, error proofing and optimization,” said Mike Lowry, Lowry Solutions’ CEO. “In addition to orchestrating improved operations, Sonaria provides analytics and dashboards allowing managers to gain insights for further improvement. The result is the ability to manage a company’s value chain more quickly and more effectively than was ever possible before combined with the flexibility to scale and reconfigure their operations with ease,” Lowry continued. “We are beyond excited to introduce this technology to the ever evolving marketplace.”
