traceability: Harnessing the power of your supply chain

TRACEABILITY: HOW IT WORKS

PRODUCT PEDIGREE

Traceability enables you to track the movement of goods across the supply chain (history, location, or status of items). Beyond complying with legal requirements, the ability to identify and trace products can offer your organization a significant competitive advantage thanks to the actionable data it generates.

For example, you can use this data to protect your brand, increase proximity and real-time contact with end users and partners for collaboration and continuous improvement. You can also use such information to determine if there are any weak links in your supply chain, track conditions to help prevent product damage or waste, and even take control of your products’ carbon footprint.

From the extraction of raw materials to distribution to end users and disposal, traceability authenticates product pedigree, allowing for ultimate optimization of resources, parts, product inventory, and more.

TAKE YOUR BUSINESS FURTHER THAN YOU EVER IMAGINED

VISIBILITY

Traceability solutions allow you to connect to a large number of suppliers, including small producers.

Along with acquiring data and geolocation, the visibility provided enables you to understand your suppliers and their performance, as well as monitor their/your social and environmental impact

SAFETY

In terms of safety, traceability provides valuable investigation tools allowing you to monitor environmental conditions along the supply chain, improving quality control, and limiting returns.

Traceability also allows you to meet regulation compliance, which in turn helps
ensure your products’ integrity, secure your warranty protection and prevent fraud

MARKETING

And did you know that traceability can also greatly enhance marketing initiatives?

For example, these solutions can be used to manage campaigns, build data for demand forecasting and increase customer intimacy through loyalty programs and product e-pedigree applications

NEW TECHNOLOGIES: THE WAY FORWARD

To make supply chains smarter, a number of new and enabling technologies are required. OPTEL’s personalized approach and long-standing know-how, combined with the advent of the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) and artificial intelligence, allows us to put these technologies together in a way that adapts to your specific needs and supply chain.

In fact, artificial intelligence and data in particular are at the heart of traceability. Without data acquisition and analysis, all this valuable information would be lost. So the more data is acquired and analyzed, the better the results. Examples of some key benefits include monitoring the performance of your partner network (dwell time, suspicious activity, etc.), automatic detection of capacity, planning optimization, and more.

OPTEL’s data-centric systems enable you to lead this artificial intelligence wave and benefit from cutting-edge solutions built for efficiency, profitability and sustainability.

Enabling technologies

Blockchain

Distributed ledger technology providing a transparent and secure means for tracking transactions.

Cloud Computing

Cloud-based data-capturing, data context and data lakes are the key to ensuring the extraction of valuable intelligence that helps improve business.

Artificial Intelligence

Branch of computer science aiming to make computers behave like humans. Advances in this area are starting to enable uses beyond robotics and games.

Collaborative platform

Combination of tools and processes to connect and collaborate with others while providing access to all required information and resources.

Business intelligence and reporting

Tools and systems allowing a company to gather, store, access and analyze corporate data to aid in decision-making.

Internet of Things

IoT extends connectivity to everyday things that utilize embedded technology to communicate and interact with the external environment, all via the Internet.

END-TO-END TRACEABILITY AND ITS NUMEROUS BENEFITS

Performance

Be more efficient and maximize performance in every way ─ far beyond regulatory compliance.

In addition to identifying counterfeit products and protecting your revenue, your traceability data can also be used to track and better manage raw materials, resources, waste, inventory, product recalls and warranty costs.

Trust

The authenticity and visibility provided by traceability solutions enable you to establish unquestionable trust with suppliers and customers.

For customers, your brand becomes a proven symbol of quality, safety and authenticity.
For suppliers, traceability eliminates the need to conduct full testing at every transaction point in the supply chain.

Sustainability

As resources dwindle and costs rise, sustainability is increasingly important. Traceability allows you to ensure fair trade, maximize available resources, reduce waste, reuse materials, and even sell your industrial by-products.
Traceability is the key to product life cycle analysis which leads to understanding and controlling the environmental and social impact of your products.
