Why securing supply chains is important for manufacturers?

Supply chains are like the nervous system of organizations. A healthy supply chain ensures that a company is progressing on the growth path.  Supply chains should always be on high priority of companies as loopholes in the supply chain can lead to an escalation of costs, poor delivery management and a threat to intellectual property. Moreover, the supply of tampered and counterfeit products can lead to unwanted legal issues and a blot on the brand image.

Today, supply chains are prone to threats like theft, sabotage, terrorism, malware attacks, piracy etc. While threats cannot be completely erased, certain security measures can help to secure supply chains.

Holostik which is a pioneer in providing anti-duplication products and solutions also provides comprehensive and customised supply chain management solutions to companies. Moving a step ahead in anti-duplication technology the company helps to secure

Nowadays, companies are facing the regular threat of duplication. Counterfeiting or duplication can take place at any stage of the supply chain. However, monitoring the entire supply chain is a herculean task and manually it is challenging to examine loopholes or errors in the complete supply chain of a company.

In order to secure the supply chains against the menace of duplication different kind of technologies have been put into use. However, the most effective among them is the use of track and trace technology which closely monitors the movement and quantity of the product across the supply chain. Holostik provides a customised barcode or QR code along with a security hologram to products. This helps in not just authenticating the product but also helps in the implementation of other IT enabled solutions like track and trace, supply chain management, reward management, inventory management etc.

Digital authentication can take place through a QR code and bar code can take place on an individual product, pack case and pallet. The highlighting feature of this security product is that it cannot be copied easily due to the presence of physical hologram along with the QR code.

Why track and trace technology is important for securing supply chains?

Counterfeiting, tampering or adulteration can take place at any part of the supply chain. Counterfeiters can sneak in at any stage and can make counterfeit copies of the genuine product or can tamper with its packaging and contents.  A supply chain is the network of all the individuals, organizations, resources, activities and technology involved in the creation and sale of a product, from the delivery of source materials – from the supplier to the manufacturer, and the final product delivery to the end user.

Organisations and company owners can take the necessary measures to secure their supply chains. Different technology tools can be used as effective solutions to secure supply chains. Since the supply chain encompasses different stages, therefore, it is difficult to individually monitor each of them. Moreover, it is manually not feasible to examine loopholes or any errors in the supply chain.

Of late, different kinds of technologies are being used to secure and monitor supply chains. The amalgamation of IT-enabled authentication technology and holographic authentication technology is being used by companies worldwide. A good example is the use of barcode or QR code technology which not just digitally authenticates the products but also links it with different IT-enabled solutions like track and trace.

Track and trace system is one-of-its-kind technology which helps in tracking and tracing the product throughout the supply chain. The technique provides a unique identifying code (bar code/ QR code) onto each product after it has been packaged. This enables individual products to be tracked from production to the end consumer and helps manufacturers significantly reduce counterfeiting by ensuring products can be easily identified.

Digital authentication through a QR code and barcode take place on the individual product, pack, case and pallet level. Variable and unique QR codes are difficult to copy and thus provide security on each level of the supply chain. Holostik is a pioneer of anti-counterfeiting solutions and provides a range of holographic and digital authentication solutions for securing products and supply chains. Its security holograms enabled with digital authentication solutions help in providing a multi-layered security approach to the product and the company’s supply chain.

The importance of securing supply chains with track and trace technology

People who are victims of theft, robbery, fire, flood or other disasters often complain about the powerlessness they have over the situation. The gruesome situation can create an enormous amount of financial burden and can cause irreparable loss to the individual and organisations.

But just as individuals can take necessary measures to protect their products and properties similarly organisations and company owners can take the necessary measures to secure their supply chains. Different technology tools can be used as effective solutions to secure supply chains.

One of the biggest threats faced by companies is the problem of duplication. Counterfeiting or duplication can take place at any stage of the supply chain. Since the supply chain encompasses different stages, therefore, it is difficult to individually monitor each of them. Moreover, it is manually not feasible to examine loopholes or any errors in the supply chain.

Of late, different kinds of technologies are being used to secure and monitor supply chains. Particularly IT technology in amalgamation with holographic technology is being used by companies worldwide. A good example is the use of barcode or QR code which not just digitally authenticates the products but also links it with different IT-enabled technologies like track and trace, supply chain management, reward management, inventory management, marketing campaigns and other functionalities.
