I am therefore delighted to welcome VisionID as a Platinum Partner in the programme.”

Robert Jones, Managing Director of VisionID added, “VisionID has become one of the most successful systems integrators in Ireland employing over 35 people. “We are a solution partner to a variety of leading multi-national companies across Ireland, offering a comprehensive range of auto-id solutions that provide visibility of critical assets and information at all times. The benefits to our customers are improved operational efficiency, a reduction in the waste of resources, leading to improved profitability.”

Healthcare is an area of strategic focus at present. VisionID and GS1 Ireland are committed to working together to support improvements in patient care and safety through the use of the latest data capture and wireless connectivity technologies.

Projects already underway include the implementation of solutions to track and trace medical assets, specimen samples and patient records; each of which will help reduce clinical errors in patient identification, administration & medication.

A recent project in University Hospital Waterford saw the introduction of a barcoded patient wristband printing and scanning solution which contributes towards patient safety and hospital efficiency by establishing the foundations for defining and recording an efficient patient journey though out the hospital.

Traceability is of the upmost importance to manufacturers in both the food and life sciences sectors to safeguard quality and ensure regulatory compliance. Working alongside GS1, VisionID will support manufacturers through the use of innovative technology solutions such as RFID, vision inspection and data capture. These systems are designed to reduce waste & production errors, strengthen productivity and enhance the visibility of assets throughout the production cycle, ensuring a lean manufacturing environment.

Item identification and stock management using RFID technology is a particular focus for the Apparel (clothing) sector in 2017 and GS1 and VisionID will host a workshop to illustrate the powerful benefits and efficiency gains of using RFID tags and readers.

Mike Byrne, CEO GS1 Ireland commented, “VisionID have a well-proven record in creating supply chain visibility solutions. Through our mutual agreement on the benefits of implementing standards-based solutions we look forward to further strengthening our relationship.”
