Empower your delivery with real-time visibility

Retail and Logistics companies are witnessing a phenomenal rise in demand due to rapid proliferation of online stores. Both, organized and unorganized retails channels are set to grow at a very rapid pace over the next few years. However, expanding the service reach by developing a strong back and front-end supply and logistic networks will require a technology that would capture data accurately and is also quickly adopted by users. Orion’s LICR solution is an apt solution for this emerging need of retail organizations. With a digital pen and tablet, data can be captured remotely and transferred to the main servers via mobile devices to streamline any tasks demanding paperwork. This real time data can be used as a proof of delivery as well to resolve any issues or disputes and subsequently improve customer service.

Drive effective healthcare outcomes by setting new standards for quality care

Data Governance is a critical aspect of quality healthcare and also one of the most challenging to manage. To support care delivery and other functions, medical records need to be securely stored and accurately tracked. They must be available to providers at a second’s notice – while, at the same time, remain compliant with Government and State regulations. Capturing this unstructured health information and updating patient records often takes up valuable time of providers that could be utilized to deliver better patient care. OLICR can effectively bridge this gap by enabling data capture in real-time while employing conventional digital pen and paper method. The data can be validated further to ensure corrections could be made before it is submitted to patient records server.
