Tom Weir, CSafe COO, who has led the effort from the beginning, remarked that, "the entire team is excited about today's official launch, but that doesn't mean the work is over. We will be retrofitting the remainder of the active container fleet throughout Q1 before we move on to our roadmap of enhancements. We'll also be bringing our Cell & Gene customers onto the platform and implementing the system for VIP Parcel containers and customers to offer the capability across our entire product portfolio."
