According to a recent article in the Real Estate Journal, transitioning to a post-lockdown workplace will require time and planning.

Sony’s Criotive access management solution is designed for adaptation to different use cases, and the latest offer is an exciting new digital padlock that combines Nokē® hardware with Criotive software. ACSS Lås, a Stockholm-based company specialising in smart solutions for public environments, recently signed a reseller agreement with Sony to bring the new smart padlocks to the enterprise market.
Combining a purpose-built device with a solid back-end solution, the mSafety platform allows companies interested in remote monitoring to develop their own mobile health and safety IoT services. And that is exactly what the Irish enterprise software development company, 8 West Consulting, has done. In fact, they have created a whole suite of applications based on Sony’s customisable, connected 4G/5G wearable platform, to help keep people safe.

The ability to connect billions of ‘things’ to each other via the Internet offers rich opportunities for many industries. Healthcare is no exception, and the hospital world has been quick to understand and adopt IoT technology to help patients manage chronic conditions and support recovery after illness or surgery. But healthcare providers now face a hard task – that of managing the security and privacy of data passing to and from medical IoT devices. Criotive has the solution.
Sony’s mSafety solution enables clinical and pharmaceutical researchers to create customised applications for trial protocols and monitor participants remotely. This easy-to-use connected wearable and reliable back-end solution ensure seamless bi-directional data flows – making mSafety a powerful tool for monitoring compliance and verification of participants’ responses to treatment.

Many manufacturing companies struggle with tracking of goods and assets during air shipments. When waiting for sensitive or time-critical deliveries, they and their customers may be left wondering: ‘Has the plane taken off, or landed yet?’, ‘Was the cargo handled properly during the flight?’, ‘Did temperatures stay within a safe envelope?’. In the case of critical spare parts, the answers to these questions can have a major impact on the receiver’s production line. Find out how Visilion for logistics’ new flight mode feature improves visibility of this elusive link in the transport chain.
With more cyberattacks reported in the first half of 2020 than the whole of 2019*, the security of IoT devices – or the lack of it - is an issue we can no longer afford to ignore.

Healthcare facilities around the world are doing their best to minimise the risk of contamination from COVID-19. It’s not only about PPE, but also security. Are you wondering how to improve the security of your healthcare facility while also saving time and money?
Managing access to residential buildings, offices or other shared workspaces can be a stressful and time-consuming task. Hours are spent crossing town to meet new tenants and hand over keys, rescuing tenants who’ve lost their keys or waiting for handymen to show up, not to mention the hassle of keeping track of multiple keys to different parts of buildings.
Smart tracking is becoming an essential requirement of asset owners and companies transporting critical or high-value goods. In logistics, this is leading to the construction of a new value chain in which location tracking is complemented by condition monitoring via sensors. Visilion from Sony, through its collaboration with Telenor Connexion, is able to offer superior worldwide connectivity.
A recent article, published by UNCTAD, explores the opportunities and challenges associated with greater supply chain visibility – enabled by digital technologies and information-sharing networks.

The question is how to overcome the hurdles and make this a reality.
