eAgile has been a provider of large-scale serialization deployments utilizing IoT/RFID solutions for healthcare and highly secure asset tracking. Digital printing on the HP Indigo 6900, with high-performance data RIPing power combined with eAgile’s RFID technology, opens the door to a full array of smart packaging and product authentication solutions to brand owners. It utilizes covert and overt security print, serialization and RFID to make the supply chain safe, visible and efficient.
“Global brand owners already trust HP for the highest quality digital print for all of their consumer facing products. eAgile is pleased to be collaborating with a true leader to bring a turn-key security and authentication solution for brand protection,” says Gary Burns, CEO of eAgile Inc.
The eLink solution will bring an affordable and potentially self-funding security system to industries that need to protect against counterfeits and diverted products. eAgile is already providing multiple Rain RFID and NFC solutions to the healthcare marketplace, primarily pharmaceuticals and nutraceuticals, two industries where these issues not only cost brand owners billions in direct and indirect damages, but potentially put lives at risk.
“Everyone from the brand owner to the consumer has common interests, they want products that are safe, authentic and compliant. The assumption by consumers is when a product is on the shelf, it has been validated by upstream checkpoints," says Peter Phaneuf, president of eAgile. “This holds true in many traditional situations but with the expansion of online purchasing, international distribution models and an increasingly savvy counterfeit industry, there are limited ways to affordably police your brand at all levels and in all places. By providing an effective authentication process powered by a smartphone, nearly everyone will have access to safe and secure goods.”
The combination of HP’s high-speed security digital print and eAgile’s proven RFID/IoT based smart packaging platforms has created eLink, an actionable strategy for a secure, authentic and traceable supply chain rich with real-time data analytics.
