Vericode certifica la Performance di JBROCK “The Moleskine Black Wall”

Sunday, June 4, 2017

L’artista JBROCK dipingerà su 960 taccuini l’opera “MOLESKINE, il tuo UNIVERSO”

La mostra Cross the Streets, si sta sempre più rivelando come vera e propria piattaforma culturale. In corso al MACRO Museo d’Arte Contemporanea Roma fino al 1 ottobre 2017, l’esposizione raccoglie e racconta 40 anni di Street Art e Writing ospitando i più importanti artisti che hanno segnato le tappe fondamentali di questo movimento a livello nazionale e internazionale.

Dopo il grande successo di pubblico della serata di inaugurazione – oltre 5.000 persone che hanno letteralmente e gioiosamente “invaso” il museo, guardando e confrontandosi con le opere in mostra e ballando fino a tarda notte sulle note dei protagonisti della scena rap e hip hop – il 20 maggio è in programma un nuovo appuntamento: la Street Art Live Performance “The Moleskine Black Wall”, che vede il coinvolgimento di Moleskine, una marca che accompagna i mestieri creativi e con i suoi taccuini offre uno strumento di lavoro per molti street artist.

Dalle ore 10.30 alle 13.00, l’artista JBRock,  classe ’79, una delle figure di spicco nel campo della poster e della stencil art, dipingerà  l’opera “MOLESKINE, il tuo UNIVERSO” su un muro composto da ben 960 taccuini, gli stessi usati correntemente dai writers per preparare gli sketch dei loro lavori e chiamati appunto Black Book.

“Verso la Supply Chain 4.0”, idee e soluzioni

Saturday, May 13, 2017

Tracetoo ha organizzato a Mendrisio (Svizzera) il 27 aprile 2017 il convegno “Verso la Supply Chain 4.0”. Nel corso dell'incontro si è parlato in modo trasversale di logistica, tracciabilità, anticontraffazione e nuove tecnologie. Gli interventi dei relatori hanno motivato interessanti domande della platea; si è realizzato così l'obiettivo di questa iniziativa: proporre una giornata di confronto che potesse fornire spunti di lavoro pratici alle aziende.
Ha aperto l'evento la relazione di Massimo De Santis, Presidente di TiciPack Sagl e rappresentante svizzero di SNV in senso al comitato internazionale ISO TC 122 packaging e al comitato europeo CEN. De Santis ha presentato i risultati ottenuti dai produttori e distributori di elettrodomestici bianchi (lavatrici, lavastoviglie, …) a seguito dell'introduzione nella supply chain di asset riutilizzabili. Nella prima parte della presentazione sono state illustrate le tappe iniziali del progetto teso a realizzare degli imballaggi riutilizzabili che potessero sostituire quelli a perdere, in polistirene espanso sinterizzato, attualmente diffusi sul mercato. Oltre alla definizione dei requisiti tecnici degli asset, è stato a messo a punto l'efficiente ciclo tramite il quale essi vengono immessi nella supply chain dal produttore - arrivano fino al consumatore - ritornano infine al centro di lavaggio e ricondizionamento in attesa che il ciclo ricominci di nuovo. Nella seconda parte, De Santis ha spiegato qualitativamente e soprattutto quantitativamente quali vantaggi abbiano riscontrato gli attori della filiera che hanno impiegato questa soluzione: una miglior reputazione presso i consumatori, una riduzione dal 5% allo 0% delle perdite per danneggiamento dei prodotti, una riduzione dei costi di 26 euro a pezzo in fase di produzione, e una riduzione di 18 euro in fase di distribuzione. Non da ultimo sono stati quantificati anche i benefici ambientali derivanti da questo sistema.
A seguire, Simone Trabalza, SAP specialist in supply chain e planning production ha spiegato come nell'azienda farmaceutica Ginsana SA, sia stata implementata la catena di produzione e confezionamento dei prodotti per l'inserimento su ciascuna confezione dei codici seriali. Si tratta di un obbligo legislativo cui ottemperare e che non interessa solo i farmaci ma anche altri prodotti a seconda dei paesi a cui sono destinati. Per citare un esempio dal 7 novembre 2017 la serializzazione sarà obbligatoria per tutti i prodotti destinati al mercato USA e approvati dall'FDA. Trabalza ha messo in evidenza che la serializzazione dei prodotti ha richiesto all'azienda un grande impegno e un ingente investimento che, se è vero che è partito per ottemperare a un obbligo normativo, porterà al vantaggio di arginare le perdite economiche dovute alla contraffazione dei farmaci – fenomeno molto diffuso e che oltre a danneggiare le aziende è pericoloso per il consumatore.
Su questo concetto si è innestata la presentazione di Moreno Poli di Tracetoo, che ha spiegato come attraverso Vericode un'azienda può esternalizzare il processo di serializzazione dei propri prodotti e ottenere numerosi vantaggi senza dover modificare i propri processi informativi. Vericode è una piattaforma di tracciabilità che genera dei codici seriali e li associa al prodotto. Può farlo in modi differenti a seconda delle esigenze dell'azienda cliente. I codici, interrogati a vari livelli della supply chain, restituiscono informazioni specifiche a ispettori, consumatori, distributori. Questo servizio aiuta a arginare la contraffazione, i mercati grigi, le importazioni parallele e a fornire al consumatore finale un vero e proprio passaporto del prodotto che sta acquistando.
Sistemi come Vericode possono facilmente innestarsi nella filiera su prodotti che vengono identificati tramite gli standard. Pierluigi Montanari esperto di supply chain in GS1 Svizzera ha infatti illustrato le tipologie di standard applicabili a vari settori merceologici e a diversi livelli della catena produttiva. Dalla spiegazione è emerso in modo chiaro che su questi standard – a diversi livelli – è possibile innestare una serie di servizi ad elevato valore aggiunto. Dunque gli standard rappresentano una soluzione univoca, trasparente e affidabile sulla base della quale migliorare la distribuzione, la tracciabilità e la rintracciabilità dei prodotti.
L'evento si è concluso con la presentazione di Enrico Camerinelli, Vice Presidente CSCMP Italy Round Table che ha spiegato come Block Chain – il sistema nato nel mondo della finanza e della moneta elettronica – possa essere impiegato con successo per migliorare la produzione e la distribuzione di prodotti industriali. Block Chain infatti può tracciare in modo indipendente e super partes e dunque restituire informazioni trasparenti, sicure e non modificabili sulla solvibilità dei clienti, sullo stato degli ordini, sulla reputazione dei produttori.

AP Racing puts a stop to counterfeit calipers

Sunday, September 25, 2016

AP Racing is tackling the problem of counterfeit brake components with an innovative data tag, helping customers distinguish genuine parts from frauds.
Allowing customers to authenticate their brand new purchase, the programme from AP Racing will allow users to scan a unique code on a component using a smart phone app, or check via web-portal, in order to certify its provenance.
Applied to all generally available AP Racing calipers families, the new programme will be launched Q3 2016 and will support the Coventry based company’s commitment to high-quality manufacturing. With a history of innovation in design that dates back to the 1960s, AP Racing believes in the value of investment in research and development. Using its state-of-the-art facilities, it works in close co-operation with leading car and motorcycle manufacturers to develop all of its products in the UK.
Fixed to components during the manufacturing process, the data tags are designed to protect the authenticity of the calipers and it’s advised that they are left in place in order to protect the integrity of the scheme. If removed, customers will not be able to track the part in the future, eliminating a significant method of distinguishing it from a counterfeit product.
Once downloaded the AP Racing app allows users to scan a data tag, before entering the relevant and required registration details. Once complete, customers will receive verification of the parts authenticity and a confirmation email. In addition, a dedicated section of the company’s website provides a similar process as an alternative.
With counterfeit and inferior parts presenting the industry with a serious issue, AP Racing is keen to ensure that its customers can continue to rely on the company’s reputation for high-quality design and engineering. With counterfeits produced in inadequate and unregulated facilities, they may look identical to the real parts - but are not tested or verified to AP Racings exacting standards. Whist counterfeit components represent a significant cost to the global car industry, they more importantly present a significant safety risk to the end user whom in many cases may not be aware the product is counterfeit.

The new traceable VETRO ARTISTICO® MURANO trademark

Tuesday, June 28, 2016

A press conference presenting the new Vetro Artistico® Murano traceable label Took place 26/06 at 12:00 in Venice at Palazzo Balbi, headquarters of the Region of Veneto Council. The new trademark is born to protect the customer about originality of the Murano glass artifacts and the customers.

The mark, realized following the most recent technologies, will allow the user to track, with smartphones, tablets and PCs, the entire history of the product, reconstructing the process of creation.
It is a true identity card of the artifact, which guarantees the originality, uniqueness and value of its the creative process.

The project was carried out by the Consortium Promovetro Murano with the support of the Veneto Region and the Chamber of Commerce of Venice ans its lagoon.

The new traceabe sticker was born after a long process of research and replaces the previous mark that although equipped with anti-counterfeiting systems, did not provide information on the object glass and the company who had carried it out.

The press conference was attended by the Deputy Mayor for Economic Development and Energy of the Veneto Region Roberto Marcato, the President of the Consortium Promovetro Luciano Gambaro and the Secretary General of the Chamber of Commerce and its lagoon Roberto Crosta. Absent of the last hour the Deputy Minister Enrico Zanetti called to Rome because of the recent events that led to Brexit and the output of Britain by the European Union.

“This is a revolution for Murano glass – says Luciano Gambaro, President of the Consortium Promovetro Murano. Technology at service of a thousand-year history. An innovative tool for the protection of a territory and its tradition. An initiative to protect the customer and originality of Murano glass objects “.

Beat for patrols management

Monday, April 25, 2016

Companies leader in the services sector of Safety, Emergency, Risk Management and Fire Figthing Services chose Beat to simplify the attendance registration of all staff involved. The operation is very simple: every guard has downloaded to their smartphone a specific application. When they approach a tag, positioned to collect data, attendance registration is automatic and it is available through the platform that can be accessed in real time.
With the same technology and the same investment, Beat it is also used to monitor the patrols carried out by the guards. So on the set path were positioned 'sentinel' tags that are read at the passing of every guard in the exact moment when they approach; the UHF RFID technology has been selected for facilitating the reading in "Difficult" places.
Thanks to geolocation, you can ensure that the guard has passed in a particular place at a very specific time.
To implement this solution, we took advantage of the collaboration with Caen RFID, a leading RFID UHF reader manufacturer.
"The mini QId player is perfect for this type of application due to the excellent reading efficiency and to its small size, with this combination of hardware and software we believe we have developed a very flexible system for the needs of our customers.
Beat can be used for multiple applications (Attendance, patrols Management, Inventory, Tracking, Anti-Counterfeiting, Proximity Marketing).
Beat is compatible with Qrcode, Datamatrix, NFC and with CAEN RFID Bluetooth readers.

Aviation MRO Service Prevents foreign object damage (FOD) with RFID tool management system

“…every year more than $4B in direct expenses can be traced back to everything from
soda cans to toolboxes (source: www.aviationweek.com) “

Making use of RFID technology becomes easier to search the missing tool in tight spaces and without optics visibility.
Does not require replacement of tools.
By applying appropriate Rfid most of the instruments can be verified by Tools Check.
In every maintenance organization if some activities are subject to poor control of the tools, can be a threat to
flight safety.
The discovery of a mislaid of a tool, after working on an aircraft, is not a pleasant experience, either for the
operator, or for the people looking for it. Moreover, not knowing that a tool is lost could prove to be an even
more unpleasant experience for others in the future. For this reason the control of tools is important in every
workshop activity.

At the end of the working day, it is always important to do a visual check of the working area. During this operation is convenient to check if:
• All tools are in them proper place, into them proper boards
• All equipments are stored correctly
• The area around the aircraft is free of any object that could be damage the aircraft.

In this case, this control is important to avoid accidental ingestions in the engine, or Foreign Object Damage (FOD). In case of lost tools, organizations
must have a procedure to follow when they receive a report of a lost tool.This procedure usually involves a check of all stores, tool boards and work
areas, followed by a deep search by a nominated team. If this search fails, a further and more extensive zone search may be implemented, that might
involve also selected dismantling of aircraft part.Tools Check is a Tablet Program that uses the RFID technology to take an inventory of all the tools,
reporting immediately the lack of one of it.
Tools Check can be used to search the missing Tools in the place where it was used.

Seed&Chips

Monday, April 13, 2015

On March 29 in Milan was closed Seeds & Chips, the first international show dedicated to digital companies that are innovating in the food and wine chain. An event that we have followed this year a bit from afar but with great interest, convinced that also the food and beverages field can benefit of the use of the technological and innovative solutions that Tracetoo has developed. A reflection, this, that fits well in the context of the Expo and its theme "Feeding the Planet. Energy for Life ". And to who is thinking that talking of pulling a "beacon into a potato chip" is going too far, we say that we truly believe that any sector that decides to grab the thousands possibilities offered by computer science and technology does not have to change its face, history and values, but simply continue doing what it has always done, just in a different way: more efficient, faster, more in line with the essence of the company.

The beacon technology brings you closer to your customer

Tuesday, March 31, 2015

Tuesday, March 31, 2015
Human24Hours is the synthesis of the new approach of the commercial relationships that contemporary companies are called to inweave to expand their market.
A definition that seems to make the classification BtoC and BtoB outmoded and describes the permanent connection that each user can have with the flow of external information through the use of smartphones, social networks and Internet.
This has been discussed at ShopExpo 2015 by Alberto Pasquini, founder of Crea International, through a brilliant presentation on how to innovate the physical spaces of commercial areas, thereby determining also an innovation of the model of use of the services related to them. Right in line with what we at Tracetoo have presented at ShopExpo 2015: technological solutions, based on the beacon technology, which allow companies to not only learn more about their customers, but of dialoguing with them in real time.
The feedback obtained from Beat, the solution presented at the fair, has exceeded the expectations. "We have seen the great interest of both manufacturing and distributor companies in knowing more about their customers and in dealing with them using the potential of all the new media," said Moreno Poli, senior partner of Tracetoo.
Beat, our solution based on beacon technology, lends itself to achieve these objectives, both for those wanting to analyze the flow of people and their behavior in commercial spaces, and for those interested in the proximity marketing, and for those wanting to protect against counterfeiting its brands, concludes Poli.
As technological partners of companies which differ in size and needs, we are committed to propose a solution that is not only efficient, simple to use and customizable if needed, but also sustainable through an affordable and optimized cost", notes Gian Luigi Testa, co-founder of the company.
