A broken chain means criminal opportunity.

Covid-19, trade disputes, and panicked planning broke the supply chain. This chaos created an opportunity for fraudsters and counterfeit electronics that:

  • At best, diminish performance.
  • At worst, damage products or harm consumers.

Fortunately, traceability tech has evolved. Cost-effective methods and turnkey technologies now help manufacturers track even the smallest components from sub-suppliers, through production, and on to end-users.

In this free webinar, three traceability experts will share new advancements in track and trace. Discover the readily available resources that will help your firm fight fraud.

DURATION: 1 hour

Kim Albertsen – PSQR

  • How supply chain digitisation technology can help you overcome the current supply chain challenges

Guggi Kofod – imZERT Technology (Rel8 ApS)

  • How imZERT and integration with PSQR and CortexDecoder can help you overcome the challenges of marking and reading small plastics

Thomas Rissmann – Code Corp

  • How enterprise-grade image-based scanning technology excels at scanning small, low-contrast barcodes, and DPM codes

1

Individual parts are marked with the “world's smallest barcodes” enabling them to be tracked & traced

2

Those barcodes are quickly and reliably scanned using Code's hardware or software

3

The scanned data is used in track & trace software, from manufacturing to end user, so everything is monitored
