Cold Chain Monitoring Made Simple

Lightning NFC (Near Field Communications wireless technology) brings Smart Phone sophistication and low-cost regulatory compliance to temperature monitoring.  Remarkably simple and easy to use, Lightning NFC instruments accurately capture in-transit time and temperature data for all perishable shipments.

Two Options:

  1. Use free standard Lighting NFC App to display full temperature chart and details, select range, add purchase order number, make notations about quality and condition, and add product photographs to the temperature record.  Temperature data, supporting notations and photographs available for free online review using Cargo Data’s UpLink feature. For detailed Lighting NFC App instructions, click here.
  2. The enhanced Lightning QA App is for customers enrolled in Cargo Data’s comprehensive Lightning NFC QA temperature monitoring and quality documentation program.  Lightning QA App is installed on Cargo Data provided tablet computers.  The QA App adds support for multiple purchase orders/items per shipment, commodity specific quality documentation screens with database driven drop down menus, and features to capture accept/reject decisions and comments.  Full password-protected access on our secure website ensure your critical QA data is safe, while customized reporting with photos is easily available for audit. A video overview of the Lightning QA App can be viewed here.

Data for both applications can be entered using smart device keypad or voice entry.  Temperature reports with comments and photos can be emailed directly from the smart device to expedite time-critical decision making.
