IT major Tech Mahindra said it has partnered with StaTwig, a Singapore and Hyderabad-based digital supply chain solution provider, to implement vaccine traceability platform “VaccineLedger” globally.
The companies aim to roll out a blockchain-based traceability solution for global vaccine supply chain transparency, predict and prevent failures in supply chains, including problems related to expired vaccines, stock out, and counterfeiting, a statement said.
VaccineLedger is an open-source platform and designed to perform end-to-end traceability at the vial level for vaccines in the global supply chain. It prevents the need of replacing the existing system, therefore, removing the barriers to adoption.
It can easily integrate with existing systems and show immediate results in the countries where it is deployed.
Through this partnership, Tech Mahindra and StaTwig will work towards building a global consortium of vaccine researchers, governments, pharmaceutical companies, distributors, and healthcare workers, the statement said.
StaTwig will leverage Tech Mahindra’s go-to-market expertise, including access to sales and customer networks, domain experience, balance sheet support, resource scale, and system integration knowledge.
Further, Tech Mahindra has also invested in the co-development and testing of various enterprise security modules for mobile and web applications, to support the unique requirements from manufacturers and state governments.
