To competently grow and excel in an ever-changing market, organizations are learning to rely on supply chain management and automated solutions in healthcare and life science.
Terso Solutions, Inc. provides automated inventory management solutions for tracking high-value medical and scientific products in the healthcare and life sciences industries.
Terso has over 14 years of RFID product development and implementation experience, and its product line includes RAIN RFID cabinets, refrigerators, freezers (-80C to -20C), smart rooms, and mobile solutions. Terso has deployed over 2,100 RAIN RFID-enabled sensors worldwide.
A Proficient Leader
Joe Pleshek is the President and CEO of Terso Solutions. He joined the company in 2007 and has overseen rapid growth while providing strategic direction and financial management. Joe is committed to adopting the most advanced RFID technology so the company’s partners can better manage their supply chains.
Prior to joining Terso, Joe held several sales, marketing, and general management positions at Appleton Papers. During his tenure there, he led the development of an RFID tag converting line which created an entirely new business revenue stream for the company. He also managed an acquisition for Appleton that was based in the United Kingdom.
Joe has worked at 3M Corporation, where he was tasked with introducing several new product and service offerings. That experience allowed him to expand his business development skills considerably.
Joe holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Industrial Technology from the University of Wisconsin, as well as a Masters of Business Administration in Marketing from the University of St. Thomas.
Terso develops RFID-enabled technology including hardware such as cabinets, refrigerators, freezers, mobile cases, handheld devices, and smart stockrooms. It also maintains a Cloud-based platform, Jetstream, on which its partners can develop tools for monitoring and managing their RFID-enabled devices.
The organization’s ultra-low temperature freezers are the only one of their kind. They provide real-time temperature monitoring capabilities for healthcare and life science organizations to manage high value assets like tissue, implants, and supplies.
A Cohesive Operation
Terso works closely with all of its clients to enable them to meet their goals and respective customer needs. Most of these clients offer RFID solutions under their own brand, while Terso collaborates with them to deliver the right solutions to further increase their efficiency.
All partners receive extensive hands-on training and continued support from the company. Terso believes in outstanding customer service and is constantly navigating uncharted territory in order to deliver smart, proven solutions.
Terso prides itself on a company culture dedicated to collaboration, opportunity, respect, and fun. It believes in cultivating an environment that breeds positive energy, one that credits innovative solutions to people who work well together and actively help each other succeed.
The organization is committed to the development of cutting-edge technology and finding the best possible way to solve supply chain issues that are detrimental to its clients. It employs smart, creative, and hard-working individuals who continuously strive to find innovative solutions.
Succeeding in a Fluid Environment
The world of healthcare and technology is always pushing the boundaries of what is possible. As technology and RFID adoption continues to grow, Terso strives to remain agile and creative. The company is evolving with the latest technology and developing new, innovative solutions that drive value and solve complex problems for its customers.
It was only after big retail stores like Walmart and Macy’s implemented RFID technology that it became widely known. Retail’s use of RFID has accelerated the adoption of this technology in many other sectors. The growth of its use in healthcare is still on the cusp of the technology adoption lifecycle, and there is a lot of room to expand into.
“I read a report by Intel that inventory distortion represents approximately $818 billion worth of lost retail sales per year. The stakes are even higher in healthcare. Imagine the impact of removing waste worth billions of dollars from the healthcare supply chain annually!” Joe enthuses.
Terso believes the Internet of Things (IoT) will continue to expand as a technology trend and will transform healthcare markets. Internet-connected devices and sensors will automatically provide real-time data on the location and condition of people and things that work together in a healthcare supply chain.
This will continue to provide a seamless way for healthcare organizations to meet regulatory guidelines, increase savings, and improve patient outcomes.
The company remains committed to providing solutions that help its partners achieve efficiency and optimization for their supply chains, through the development of both new hardware and software.
Joe sums up, “Technology will never stop advancing, and neither can we. Terso will always make sure we are offering the best and most useful solutions to help solve complex problems.”
