  • Select one correct job each time to avoid costly changeovers and minimize operator mistakes
  • Instantly access performance indicators from printing and line equipment; get immediate alerts when problems occur
  • Leverage real-time and historical data to identify bottlenecks, optimize printer performance and implement process improvements
  • Powered by CoLOS®






Our serialization solution and full-stack capabilities can be deployed rapidly on any line, site, or enterprise in any region. Our serialization and track-and-trace software is configurable for unbeatable ease of implementation and speed to accommodate changing demands and meet regulatory compliance.

Proven, full-stack platform

  • Create unique product identifiers, automate pallet labeling, and aggregate every packaging level for seamless traceability
  • Provide site-level master data, serial number management, event reporting, and offline serialization packing operations
  • Establish enterprise-level connectivity with comprehensive track-and-trace and compliance integrations




Mixing and matching traceability tools from different vendors can be overwhelming and costly. We provide a single, simple solution for generating, managing, and reporting product data in a diverse supply chain ecosystem. Our track-and-trace solution makes it easy to create a compliant system of record for your products in changing regulatory environments.

Secure, end-to-end supply chain tracking

  • Get item transfer visibility and secure data exchange across your global supply chain
  • Create, modify and order the processing of data based on your requirements
  • Establish multiple levels of user restrictions and redundancy for everyone in your supply chain ecosystem




Product authentication at the individual item level is the most effective way to prevent counterfeiting and diversion. Our solutions turn each product becomes instantly connected to verify authenticity, gather actionable supply chain insight, and engage consumers.

Non-additive, digital connectivity

  • Connect physical products to the digital supply chain for item-level authentication and traceability
  • Detect product counterfeiting and diversion issues in real-time
  • Deliver item-specific details and capture consumer feedback using a simple smartphone app
