MEPS Real-Time Announces 500th Intelliguard RFID Client Installation

MEPS Real-Time, which provides Intelliguard RFID solutions for pharmacy inventory management, has announced that it has achieved its 500th active customer installation in North America. "This is a significant milestone that reflects the health-care market's continued focus on safety, cost control and efficiency in pharmacy operations," said Gordon Krass, MEPS' CEO, in a prepared statement. "Our success is a result of our modular and scalable approach to intelligent inventory management solutions that support a broad category of critical drugs and supplies used in hospitals, health systems and adjacent health-care markets."

The firm's Intelliguard solutions combine RFID hardware and workflow processes with business-intelligence software.
