  • ScanTrust Secure Codes

    The ScanTrust secure codes can be used to:
    - authenticate products and protecting brand owners from the counterfeit market,
    - track and trace products throughout the supply chain by multiple stakeholders, as well as
    - enable direct interactions with consumers in an 'offline-to-online' digital format.

    The QR codes can be scanned using mobile devices and the authenticity of which can be quickly verified using dedicated mobile applications by ScanTrust. Once a Secure QR Code has been scanned, the software will provide a real-time response to the user in the field concerning the authenticity of the product. The scan data is then captured and immediately visualized on the cloud software, from which brand owners will be able to track movements of the goods as they proceed through the supply and distribution chain. When the ScanTrust application is used by an end consumer, the scan acts as a trigger to drive a direct, secure engagement between the brand owner and the consumer at or post the point of sale in a mobile environment. Brand owners will be able to gain useful insights into consumers over time, allowing them to market directly to their customers as a result.
