Authentications and real-time checks are indispensable these days with comprehensive anti-counterfeiting solutions in every sector of industry. The control of the production and distribution process as well as the seamless traceability are at the heart of this type of solution. The PMP-production and PMP Track & Trace modules cover all steps within these processes an extension from generating unique identification codes, to coding legally or industrially required packaging identification as well as products with individual data through to shipping and checking by the end customer.
PMP Track & Trace
The PMP Track & Trace software module logs all actions of every production unit or machine integrated into the production process. This ensures that all data and information on the contents used and their batches, on machines, production lines, manufacturing sites as well as on shipping, destination and customers are recorded and tracked consistently. In addition, all actions are assigned reliable time stamps providing seamless traceability and reconstruction of the production process. Derived properties like the expiry date or unique identification features such as serial numbers are linked directly to the corresponding product packaging. A random number generator ensures the allocation of a unique serial number or a corresponding code. This ensures full product traceability based on the identification features assigned. Details on the packaging data then provides sufficient information for the verification process across the entire production and supply chain. The latest interface solutions guarantee real-time data exchange.
Real-time verification processes
PMP Track & Trace also provides secure interfaces for the actual verification processes that permit the transfer of exported product codes across various media (e.g. secure internet connection/dedicated line, GSM, etc.). PMP Track & Trace verifies that the codes received are genuine, and returns the result immediately. The data transfers are encrypted and carried out in real-time. This means that modern media such as smartphones can also be used and the verification processes can be initiated from any location.
AZ Trust Center
To generate serial numbers or grey market codes, the services of a Trust Center are often used, in particular when the folding boxes in question are being printed by a supplier. Atlantic Zeiser operates its own AZ Trust Center that guarantees unique codes for long time intervals, as well as the secure storage and management of the codes and numbers. This greatly simplifies the processes within the production site as the site is no longer required to generate these codes - and ensure their uniqueness - in-house.
