Fridges That Talk
What started as an opportunity in Haiti helped create the foundational principles we still live and breathe today.
Zennify’s founders, Nathan Mueller, Manvir Sandhu and Jesse Barker, first joined forces at Hewlett-Packard. There, they implemented Salesforce on an internal project, and fell in love with the platform and its powerful capabilities.
Soon after, the trio became involved with the Center for Disease Control and UNICEF Haiti, who enlisted their help with the Haiti Ministry of Health’s struggling vaccine supply chain. Fifty percent of its vaccine fridges were experiencing failures, compromising the viability of the critical serums they contained. Unfortunately, the ministry had no way of collecting, managing or distributing failure data, and lacked the necessary knowledge and training to address the issue.
Enter Manvir, Nathan and Jesse. Working closely with the ministry, our founders built a creative solution to safeguard the vaccines. Leveraging Salesforce Cloud and Communities, IoT sensors and user experience information, they created “Fridges That Talk.” These smart vaccine refrigerators were able to sense and alert administrators to failures, as well as collect data to help prevent them in the future.
