BlueBin and Avatek partner to launch next-generation Kanban system with RFID and voice technology

Aug. 2, 2023

BlueBin Inc. announces the release of BBID, its new electronic two-bin Kanban solution, at the 2023 AHRMM annual convention in Orlando, Florida, on August 7th, 2023. 

BBID combines RFID, LED lighting, and Voice Recognition technologies. Building on the benefits of the BlueBin Kanban solution, BBID’s automation functionalities will generate increased process efficiency both from the operational and clinical perspectives.

Combining the Kanban replenishment expertise of BlueBin, with the supply chain automation expertise of Richard Philippe, the inventor of the recognized Logi-D RFID-enabled Two Bin system, BBID marks the next generation of Healthcare Supply Chain Management.

“This marks an important moment in the development of the BlueBin offering,” said Charles Hodge, Co-Founder and President of BlueBin Inc. “We have been exploring ways to further automate our Kanban solution for a while. The partnership with Richard Philippe turned this vision into reality.”

“I have been thinking about ways to automate Kanban processes for quite some time, but never found the right process and technology match,” said Philippe, now founder and CEO of Avatek, “My recent involvement with BlueBin, as well as for the last few years in the industrial supply chain, the evolution of the available technologies, and collaboration with technology scientists, have made this new solution possible.”

The solution will be demonstrated in Blue Bin’s booth 713 at  the 2023 AHRMM annual convention in Orlando, Florida, on August 7th, 2023.
