Challanges

Fragmentation
& Interoperability

Data interoperability limitations exist in supply chains across industries. This poses a big problem for organisations building supply chain focused applications. RigourNET addresses this issue using the IBC protocol to allow data and code sharding between different blockchains and databases.

The inter-blockchain communication protocol (IBC Protocol) is a reliable & secure inter-module communication protocol, where modules are deterministic processes that run on independent distributed ledgers (also referred to as blockchains).

Shortage of
decentralised databases

Current efforts to resolve data depots are rendered by centralised data collection, raising privacy issues, and omitting transparency.

Centralised administration also allows for data manipulation and inter-party collaboration. Throughout the transition to decentralisation, current decentralised networks can not support supply chain applications due to shortcomings.

Database
scalability

Database protocols are slow, expensive & unscalable.

Afrihealth employs the Tendermint BFT consensus engine on RIgourNET to overcome this.

Security

 At the point of distribution to pharmacies, we
validate to ensure safe delivery.


Pharma fraud is a persistent problem in our globalized drug supply. Unscrupulous suppliers sometimes pass off cheaper medication for more expensive varieties. Occasionally, it is a different drug formulation. Adulteration can offend sensibilities, or worse, threaten public health. Despite heavy-handed labelling laws in places such as the European Union, scandals, recalls, waste and fraudulent labelling still plague the drug supply.

Our blockchain technology addresses this problem by tracking and validating the entire supply chain. Using this ecosystem, end users are certain of purchasing authentic medication.

What we do

Service and solutions

Our track and trace system aggregates data from supplier side (manufacturers & distribution) through carrier (transportation) up to customer(distribution & retail) and end users.

We provide a set of API’s that allow us to collect data such as manufacturing information including raw materials, date of production, lot numbers, other shipping & warehousing info etc., which simplifies monitoring.

We’re using vessel info, position data(LAT/LON), navigation data (heading, course, speed), timestamp, key vessel particulars (flag, dimension, type etc.), voyage info (destination, ETA, etc.) to provide real-time product tracking.

Data is important

Through our robust barcode scanning tech, we can collect freight data at different points in the supply chain.

All scanned data is automatically authenticated against previously collected data with the use of smart contracts on our blockchain.
