RESOLVE and Peer Ledger Announce Blockchain Partnership to provide a Technology Platform to Aggregate Makers to Speed Critical Supplies like PPE to Health, Food, and other Workers & Communities, with Free Access for COVID-19 Response until September 2020. Truvi joins with RESOLVE to apply AI to Improve Crisis Response.

Apr. 30 /CSRwire/ -  RESOLVE, Peer Ledger, and Truvi announce a partnership for information support to connect COVID-19 needs to relevant, validated solutions, in response to critical needs and shortages resulting from the COVID-19 crisis. We will work with supply chains and delivery partners to rapidly get personal protective equipment (PPE), medical products, and food supplies into the hands of healthcare organizations, essential businesses, and communities across the globe.

Peer Ledger has adapted its MIMOSI Track and Trace blockchain system and introduced MIMOSI Connect, with robust features to enable targeted connections and matchmaking among a network of suppliers, PPE makers, healthcare workers, and essential service providers at scale. MIMOSI Connect gives end-users, including participating hospitals and permissioned donors in the supply chain, a quick, confidential, and dependable record of material flow. Peer Ledger is offering MIMOSI Connect as a free service for COVID-19 response until September 30, 2020. Join MIMOSI Connect today if you need PPE, can make PPE, or have it to share.

Truvi will use AI algorithms to help communities and organizations to quickly and reliably find validated solutions to their critical needs. Truvi saves critical time, funds, and resources by presenting users with a concise, simplified and targeted summary of the viable and relevant solutions for current or predictive needs. Truvi seeks to optimize impact and enable the most suitable, cost-efficient humanitarian response to be implemented—whether matching PPE, tents, water filters, or other essential material. By bringing AI to humanitarian crisis preparedness and response, Truvi will ensure every community is better prepared to respond to emerging needs and crisis.

“The COVID-19 crisis will only be addressed if we act differently, make different decisions, and forge new partnerships. RESOLVE and Peer Ledger are committed to bending markets and supply chains for good, and working with businesses and non-profits to keep healthcare workers, communities, and local businesses safe. We’ll work with Peer Ledger and Truvi to use AI and blockchain to create long-term solutions to pandemics and other crises.” – Stephen D’Esposito, President and CEO of RESOLVE. 

“We introduced the MIMOSI Connect platform to help amplify the resiliency and efforts of communities and their NGOs battling COVID-19 on the front lines globally. MIMOSI Connect efficiently solves a number of their challenges in scaling up and managing the growing number of network transactions among suppliers, makers, and healthcare organizations. RESOLVE’s experience and efforts in building valuable community partnerships are extraordinary and we look forward to empowering their amazing network partners including MakersRespond.org, Open Source Medical Supplies, Project Northern Lights, and RESOLVE Canada with valuable information support,” - Dr. Dawn Jutla, Founder and co-CEO of Peer Ledger and Scotiabank Professor of Technology Entrepreneurship and Innovation at the Sobey School of Business.

“From Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico to COVID-19, current methods of providing assistance are being challenged. The overflow of information can create confusion and mismatches between what is needed in emergency response and what can actually help. In this age of information overflow, we need tools such as AI to extract wisdom out of the noise and make sure we bring the right solutions to those in need. Truvi serves as a decentralized smart fishing rod that enables communities to independently sift through waves of noise and data to find and implement the right solutions. If we make every dollar count, we can save more lives.” – Dr. Nir Tenenbaum, CEO and Founder of Truvi. 

What sets Peer Ledger’s MIMOSI Connect apart?

The MIMOSI Connect platform enables the fulfillment of PPE, food, and other requests including delivery and transaction requirements. We record acceptance of material, financial, and PPE donations to our network partners. All transactions can be securely captured so that accounting or audit requirements can be easily addressed when the crisis is resolved. Its marketplace feature facilitates efficient allocation of material to those that need it the most, while organizing the available supplies in the network. Makers self-register and upload the available PPE information to the system and match to requests made by communities. The system then enables the shipment and other transactions to assure the PPE or food or sanitization supplies get to where it is needed. Visual charting of successful deliveries, and analytics for optimization and troubleshooting are available.

RESOLVE forges sustainable solutions to critical social, health, and environmental challenges by creating innovative partnerships where they are least likely and most needed. These new partnerships build on RESOLVE’s history of supporting rapid response to issues like conflict mineralsfood safety, the economic impact of the Ebola outbreak, and the poaching crisis, and an ability to transition immediate support into effective, scalable, long-term solutions. 

Peer Ledger was founded in 2016 with a clear purpose: use cutting-edge blockchain technology to help companies collaborate to raise the quality of human life, improve environmental performance, and significantly reduce key risks, such as materials’ counterfeiting and safety, in their supply chains. MIMOSI Connect aggregates makers with HAVEs and healthcare and other organizations with NEEDS and makes these visible in one convenient place. As new needs emerge and more small businesses pivot to produce critical supplies to address the COVID-19 pandemic, the platform addresses the need for scale.

Truvi, founded in 2018, is an AI-based, data-driven platform that transforms humanitarian response, preparedness, and development aid by enabling communities and organizations to find the best solution to needs in real-time – building organizational learning, saving lives, time, and resources. In moments of need, Truvi streamlines the process of matching needs to resources, leading each user to the best and validated solutions to meet their specific need within minutes instead of weeks, without having to review hundreds of reports and product pages or filter information.
