Every business started somewhere; some from more humble beginnings than others. For MEPS Real-Time, Inc., what started as an idea originally conceived on an airport napkin has evolved into a paradigm-shifting technology. Today, the promise of a flourishing, global Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) industry is evident with use cases in the defense, manufacturing, retail, logistics, apparel, pharmaceutical and healthcare industries.
Founded in 2006 and headquartered in Carlsbad, Calif., MEPS Real-Time, Inc. (mepsrealtime.com) is a leading innovator of RFID solutions for the pharmaceutical and healthcare industries.
Our Intelliguard® RFID Solutions offer unprecedented visibility and automation of the management and replenishment processes of pharmaceutical inventory to improve patient safety, maximize efficiency and reduce costs associated with high-value critical dose drug inventory management in hospital pharmacies.
MEPS Real-Time® was established originally as a division of Safety Syringes Inc. which was acquired by BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company) (NYSE: BDX). The company is now a wholly owned subsidiary of Howard Energy Co., Inc. based in Traverse City, Michigan.
The vision of MEPS Real-Time, Inc. is to deliver original, innovative RFID solutions to optimize the safety and efficiency of critical inventory management and processes.
