Our Track and Trace solution takes each product that a large scale manufacturing company makes and gives it a unique barcode that makes it different to the product next to it. For example take your box of cereal or can of tomatoes. We print a new kind of barcode that can be read by any device (your smartphone, supermarket checkout, etc) and will give you information specific to the product that is in your hand.

Of course, we will show you obvious things like the product's Expiry Date or Batch Number however we will also show you all the Quality Assurance tests that your product has gone through in the factory.

For example your box of cereal might go through a metal detector to make sure there are no bits of metal inside. Well, we write programs to take the results from those metal detectors and show them to you (“Has Metal” or “Does Not Have Metal”). The kind of things we display depends on the kind of tests the factory does.

Quality Assurance tests change a lot depending on what product the factory is making or sometimes even from factory to factory. We do Tracking and Tracing for a factory that makes Infant Formula and one of the pieces of information we extract from their machinery is an X-Ray image. We take that image off their machines and show it to you. This means that when you scan our barcode you will see the actual x-ray image of your can and you can know for sure that there is nothing wrong with it.

A list of some of the things we can extract from a company’s Quality Assurance tests:

Traceability QR Code
Manufacturing Date
Expiry Date
Batch Number
X-Ray Images
Metal Detector
Vision Systems
Health and Safety Report
Product Audits
Laboratory Reports (Chemical Composition Reports)

But what is important is that it doesn't matter what we have already done, we build our systems to suit every factory's needs because we know that every factory is different.

Now you may have heard other companies claiming to have Traceability Systems. The first thing to know that this is a completely new invention. Nothing like this existed before. Typical "Traceability" systems will have a number (123456789) that means something to them when they type it into their systems. This will tell them what batch number the product has and maybe what time it was made but to know this you would have to contact the company and hope that they tell you.

What we do is give you direct access to this information so you don’t have to ask the companies permission or understand anything about how their systems work. You just scan a barcode with any barcode scanner from any app and it will take you to a website that shows you everything you need to know about your product in an easy to understand and user friendly way.

But our websites have additional features that make them even better for you! If you login or use our Track and Trace app you can see all the products you scanned in the past. This is good because if a company realises that a product needs to be recalled then we can send you an email or give you a notification saying that the product you scanned on a certain date should not be consumed! So you will be able to go back and find that product in your cupboard and avoid a disaster. Before our system if there was a recall you were almost definitely going to eat that product but now you can know mere minutes after the factory realises its mistake. Maybe you're not sure whether or not your product is genuine? We have a system for that too. Check the ID photo of your can and see if all the data matches. If your Human Verifier (typically printed on line 2) is the same as the one in the photo then your product is real!

But what if you’re the factory? How does this help you?

Data
Mining

We have a lot of experience working with companies and we understand the difficulties that you are faced with. We know that you do not want to recall your products, you want to know if there's a problem when your product is still in your warehouse and you want to be able to fix it quickly. For this we have the Partner Portal. The partner portal provides you with all the tools you need to manage your data, your factory and your customers.

The features are extensive and we are always working on developing new things you can do with your data.

So let’s start by listing some key functionality:

Traceability QR Code
Data Management
You can view all the products that you made. You can see how many you made in any given time frame or sort them by any parameter you chose (like expiry date, whether it is recalled, has an ID photo, etc). You can also change the status of any of your products to be recalled or rejected.
Audit
In the event of a recall we know that governments set out very strict procedures. We take the hassle out of retracing your steps by providing you with a tool to extract logs of every change that was made. All log entries can tell you who changed what at what time and can sometimes even tell you why!
Website Editor
You can edit the website that your clients see to suit your taste and your brand.
User Management
You can provide support for the users of your website. You can view their usage data and see which products they scanned.
Scan History
You can view the physical locations of your cans all over the world. You can see when they were scanned and where and see where your product is trending.

And you can do much more, just Contact Us and we will happily tell you all about it.
