     Los Angeles, CA – Group50 announced today the launch of Scioebc, a next generation supply chain product  that utilizes the blockchain and is powered by THINaër, an IoT platform building The Internet of People, Places and ThingsSM.

     Jim Gitney, CEO of Group50 stated, “We are truly excited about the launch of Scioebc. Our strategic relationship with THINaër allowed us to leverage two emerging technologies moving us to the front of the pack in manufacturing, distribution and supply chain expertise. For the first time, companies can implement a non-proprietary system capable of acquiring the full provenance of a product from raw materials to the end user. Scioebc utilizes the Hyperledger for its blockchain and is integrated with THINaër providing the ability to tie together enterprise systems and any type of sensory data that is generated anywhere in the supply chain. This breakthrough, plug-n-play product allows us to begin creating standards in the industry for the adoption of blockchain as the next generation supply chain tool that is capable of documenting the chain of custody and provenance of a product across its entire life cycle.” 

     Bryan Merckling, CEO of THINaër stated, “By 2020 there will be over 31 billion connected IoT devices around the globe. Most of those devices will be generating data from the field, during transportation, in factories, warehouses and retail locations. The Group50 team is leveraging the THINaër technology platform to provide their customers with new and unique data never previously available. Scioebc demonstrates the power and flexibility of our platform and we are excited to be part of a groundbreaking solution. We’re really looking forward to seeing the impact of the joint solution in healthcare, manufacturing and more.”
