traceability Harnessing the power of your supply chain

TRACEABILITY: HOW IT WORKS

Knowledge at your fingertips

Through documented recorded identification, traceability enables you to track the movement of goods across the supply chain (history, location, or status of items). Beyond complying with legal requirements, this ability can offer your organization a significant competitive advantage thanks to the actionable data it generates.  For example, you can use this data to increase proximity and real-time contact with end users and partners for collaboration and continuous improvement.

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

GLOBAL 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.

"With the intensification of traceability and transformative innovations enabled by technological advances such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain and the Internet of Things devices, we now can increase the efficiency of supply chains and secure them completely. "
