Avoid counterfeit with unique serialization codes


Counterfeit is a growing concern for those companies supplying authentic and carefully regulated products. A secure method to ensure consumers a genuine product is using a unique randomized and encrypted number in the sealed inner package of the product. With the printed code the consumers can check the on the official website the genuinity of the product.



Genuine check, loyalty program and special promotions

The unique serialization code is also usable for direct consumer loyalty programs and special promotions. As the unique printed code is sleeved in the inner-package the end-user can only read and check the code. A direct marketing-hit.

By checking end-users obtain full confidence in the products food safety and authenticity of the product.


Kortho genuine check integration

The unique check number is created using a centralized serialization-database with encrypted numbers generated with secret keys. This number can be printed in digits and/or in a QR-code.

Databases with the secret keys are kept save at the designated departments. The only output on the production site is an encrypted code. This code is supplied realtime while printing using remotely controlled factory IP-technology. Industry 4.0  and the benefits of centralized control in combination with TCP/IP in optima forma.

In addition to the standard standalone encoding equipment Kortho made it possible to manage her High-Res inkjet, Thermaltransferprinters (TTO) and continuous Inkjetprinter (CIJ) from a centralized Windows environment like ERP.
