Your supply chain is brimming with primary data. Primary data is information collected directly by a company or its partners along the supply chain, from a wide range of data sources and data capture methods. This data type is specific, detailed, and directly relevant to the company’s operations.

Primary data differs from secondary data, which is gathered from existing databases and through research; secondary data reflects industry, regional, country, or global-level practices and trends. It’s less specific to a company and its supply chain.

How OPTEL can help

Harness the power of OPTEL’s Optchain™ to master regulatory compliance, hit your ESG targets, and optimize the performance of your supply chain. Optchain™ enables you to capture real-time primary data from all of your supply chain stakeholders, offering deep insights as well as complete traceability and transparency for all your compliance needs.

OPTEL offers the capability to create primary data for unique item identification through our serialization solutions. This is typically achieved using Data Matrix and QR codes that embed a unique identifier. This feature enables the precise tracking of items throughout your supply chain, enhancing traceability and supply chain management effectiveness.


How does Optchain™ work?

Optchain serves as a central control tower, capturing crucial data for compliance and supply chain optimization. It contextualizes this data within various value-driven modules, providing a comprehensive view and enhanced control over the supply chain.

Optchain not only works within your organization but also with parties outside of your organization. It allows for sharing of the data gathered with the supply chain stakeholders, such as suppliers, customers and partners. OPTEL can produce reports within a multitude of formats and frameworks to respond to existing or emerging regulations, ensuring that reporting compliance is met.
