The evolution of IT has driven diversification of points of contact with customers. It has become vital to secure engagement points in product marketing. Giving products a digital identity enables packages to go beyond their conventional role to be conveyers of information̶devices that link to customers at every point of their journey. Providing every customer with an optimized service enhances both loyalty and brand value.



We integrate an NFC tag into every product to give it a digital identity and connect it to the Internet. A digital identity enables us to offer Authentication, Traceability, Consumer Engagement and other dynamic and expansive digital services to brands and their customers.

・Verify the authenticity of products by scanning the tag with a smartphone
・Protect against refill fraud and package tampering and reuse
・Build customer trust through product authentication
・Enable serialization, aggregation and data handling from carton and box to pallet
・Provide real time supply chain visibility through item-level track & trace
・Protect brands against gray market distribution by detecting product location through consumer scans
・Transform your products into a direct engagement channel to connect with consumers
・Capture real-time customer interaction feedback with your products
