Our active and actively aging population is the dichotomy fueling significant growth for implantable medical devices. Innovations focused on mobility, engagement and quality of life are directly targeting this growing population. The implantable medical device industry is poised to capitalize on these unique needs, while simultaneously meeting unprecedented cost pressures. It is time for manufacturers to seek expertise in inventory management and logistics for greater visibility, control and profitability. For implantable medical device manufacturers to be as active and healthy as the patients they serve, their future depends on the ability to differentiate products — not only by price, but through cost, service and documented outcomes. New trends in personal health tracking keep patients moving, and data collection will similarly improve the health of your business.

The Role of Additive Manufacturing in Production of the Future Additive manufacturing (AM) is the process of adding layers of material — most commonly plastics or resins, and increasingly metals — to produce products according to precise digital plans. With AM, products are produced using only the material necessary, therefore minimizing scrap. Modern digital technology is transforming every industry, including manufacturing. Yet in The Rise of Smart Operations, a survey of machinery manufacturers conducted by UPS and IDC, roughly one-half of the respondents said their digital or “smart” operations were lagging the competition or were at a significant disadvantage. Manufacturers will also find practical solutions they can consider implementing today to incorporate smarter operations in their production processes of the future.

Commerce today involves an increasingly complicated supply chain ecosystem. Companies rely on suppliers and buyers across the globe, most of whom they’ve never met. They use multiple carriers and modes of transportation, across international borders, with different languages, currencies and laws. This ever-changing landscape means that companies of all sizes must be more diligent than ever when it comes to managing their supply chain — and their risk. In addition, e-commerce has revolutionized purchase behaviors, creating loftier customer expectations, and putting increased pressure on sellers to find new ways to meet those needs. Global networks and tight time constraints can amplify the impact from unpredictable events, like theft, damage, weather and natural disasters. This puts even more pressure on a company’s supply chain, and its bottom line.

Transportation risk comes in many forms and can be very hard, if not impossible, to predict. These include extreme weather, theft, hijacked trailers, global crises, cargo lost at sea, catastrophic truck or rail accidents, truck fires and a whole lot more. In 2014, the University of Tennessee Global Supply Chain Institute published a white paper titled Managing Risk in the Global Supply Chain. The most surprising finding in the research was that even though 100% of supply chain executives acknowledged insurance as a highly effective risk mitigation tool, it was simply not on their radar screen, nor in their purview. Yet, the National Cargo Security Council estimates that there is an annual global financial impact from cargo loss of $50 billion.

The average computer room today has cooling capacity that is nearly four times the IT heat load. Using data from 45 sites reviewed by Upsite Technologies, this white paper will show how you can calculate, benchmark, interpret, and benefit from a simple and practical metric called the Cooling Capacity Factor (CCF). Calculating the CCF is the quickest and easiest way to determine cooling infrastructure utilization and potential gains to be realized by AFM improvements.

It’s not surprising that first contact resolution (FCR) is becoming a high priority among forward-looking contact center managers. Increasing the percentage of contacts resolved during the initial contact provides three great benefits; customer satisfaction goes up, operating costs go down, and contact-center generated revenue goes up. There are also potential downsides, like extended handle time as agents strive to keep the caller on-line until the issue can be resolved.

The average organization spends up to 10% of its annual budget on T&E, making it one of the largest controllable areas of discretionary spending. Combined with the fact that up to 90% of employee expenses are incurred on business trips each year, this means accurate expense management is more important than ever. Yet many organizations still rely on manual processes and paper-based tracking that can create serious expense management challenges for their finance teams: how can they control costs when they lack visibility into spending? Yet how can they increase visibility and control without sacrificing employee trust and empowerment? Streamlining expense management can help organizations save money, gain efficiencies and maintain control while increasing employee flexibility and freedom. But there’s no such thing as a “one size fits all” solution—different organizations require different solutions to meet their unique needs. However, when they start to consider their options, nearly

Most of today’s standards and compliance regulations are concerned largely with the protection of private data at rest, during transactions, and while it traverses network connections. Some of these regulations make specific recommendations or require particular technologies for compliance. For all of them, however, encryption can be employed to satisfy the protection requirements.
