What it is about:
It concerns the use of PNT technology for the certification of the origin of products (through the registration of a single event) of various commodity sectors (e.g. agri-food, auto parts, textile sector, generic drugs, etc.). By registering several events, it is possible to certify the entire supply chain according to the needs of the sector and consumers. Thanks to the VERISKY platform, we are able to offer a certification of origin service for the product or the entire supply chain, assisting customers in integrating these services into their production chain.
To these services we will add a number of additional digital marketing tools: QR codes, links to the company blog, integration with management software, social media channels with the possibility of creating customer loyalty strategies (rewards, discounts, etc.). We also offer the possibility of identifying actual target markets through the mechanism of traceability.
