GSL’s technologies are founded by the marriage of the minds of an engineer, Steve Garrett and a pharmacist, Shelton Louie. Both understood from the very beginning that prescriptions are physical products and needed to be tracked physically. Further, they added the requirement that the technology they developed needed to track automatically, without repetitive scanning. These requirements led them to use RFID in their smart tracking (IntelliTrak™) and smart storage (IntelliCab™) system.
GSL Solutions Will-Call IntelliCab™ System in Action
The System combines standard RFID tags (affixed to our SmartBaskets™) with GSL’s proprietary RFID readers, our unique lockable electronic cabinet design, our three-dimensional storage drawers, and our real-time IntelliSys™ tracking software. The sleek, uncluttered design of the IntelliCab System creates a professional, HIPAA-compliant, appearance and very easy to use. Once installed, your IntelliCab will virtually eliminate filing and retrieval errors, annoying waiting lines, rummaging through hanging bags or drawers, and dissatisfied customers.
From the very first day of operation, your new IntelliCab System will make your will-call pharmacy operation more productive, more efficient, and much easier to manage on a day-to-day basis. When your system goes “live,” you’ll experience the benefits of the IntelliCab System firsthand as you streamline your pharmacy workflow, improve accuracy, reduce costs, and deliver outstanding customer service.
About the Founders
Shelton Louie, RPH
During his free time, Shelton volunteers at St. Joseph Catholic School with the golf tournament and the Vancouver International Food Festival. He is a donor and spends time with St. Vincent De Paul and OSU College of Pharmacy. Shelton also participates in the Chinese Community cultural events sponsored by the Chinese Consolidated Benevolent Association.
October 2012, Shelton was named the Pharmacy Alumni Fellow through Oregon State University and will be named the OSU Pharmacy Icon in 2015. See the video here.
Joe reunited with Shelton initially as an investor in GSL Solutions in 2005. Over the next several years Joe and Shelton planned out when he would end his consulting work and join GSL Solutions full time, which became possible in 2007.
In 1998 Shelton (a friend since High School), approached Steve with a Pharmacy problem and an idea. “My technicians can’t find patients prescriptions, but the Laundry & Cleaners down the street can find the right clothes!” Shortly after, Steve created the database software for the first optically driven Cubby System which was deployed into a retail store with literally an overnight success. The same successes were noted with the 2nd and 3rd stores following in 1999 and in fact every store ever installed. This system eventually evolved into the IntelliCab system.
In his spare time Steve enjoys time with family and friends, working on holiday lighting projects and occasional gardening.
