“To improve product quality and reduce waste, solutions must be exceptionally reliable and always online with faultless data collection.

“With all the current challenges in supply chains, companies are looking for ways to manage risks, lower labor cost and reduce uncertainty. Real time end-to-end visibility and analytics including AI are strategic necessities” says Burrows. “BluTag is our first step in providing those.” The BluTag launch comes in the middle of Bluicity’s tenure as part of the latest cohort of ventures in the Supply Chain AI accelerator, a partnership between MaRS Discovery District and the Scale AI supercluster.
