*Countless other industries are also using traceability solutions for general purposes, including security protocols (tracking employees and visitors) and counterfeit-prevention


this is why we do it

  1. Facilitate the recall process by pinpointing issues at the source.
  2. Identify soon-to-be rejected items earlier in the production line.
  3. Gain 100% supply chain visibility.
  4. Mitigate errors associated with batch processing.
  5. Reduce inventory costs.
  6. Keep in compliance with government/industry regulations.
