Brand protection and anti-counterfeiting solutions


End-to-end brand protection begins on the packaging line with the right code on the right product to deliver real-time supply chain insight, actionable data, and digital connectivity.

The ability to utilize packaging as an essential component of an anti-counterfeiting and diversion detection program is crucial to brand security. Our brand protection solutions harness cutting-edge technology and deep supply chain insight to keep products authentic, safe, and connected—from the factory to your customer’s hands.

Systech, a solutions division of Markem-Imaje, has led the industry in anti-counterfeiting technology since it first pioneered regulatory-based serialization. We’ve built on decades of expertise to develop a fully integrated brand protection platform to help you authenticate and track every product, achieve regulatory compliance, and protect your brand.


Connecting brands and consumers through products


A connected product opens the door to a set of opportunities for enhanced engagement and experience. Through printing and connecting a 2D barcode on the packaging you can offer the consumer a personalized experience and story to build loyalty and encourage reorders or related purchases.

A connected QR code enables a brand-owned communication channel that gives the consumers content that goes far beyond the limited real estate of physical packaging but also consumer-product interaction visibility with real-time product insights.

Blue Bite, a solutions division of Markem-Imaje, has since 2007 improved lives by connecting people and information through the physical world, with a solution for brands looking to surprise and delight their consumers and drive more impactful results. Blue Bite helps leading brands across the world grow brand value, drive revenue, and unlock actionable insights by transforming physical products into digital experiences.

Bioplants Hot Melt Coding Cardboard Markem-Imaje
Xavier Bossard – Operations, Digital and Logistics Project Manager at Bioplants @ Bioplants

“The Markem-Imaje solution proposed to Bioplants was interesting because we could choose the criteria we needed: Before that, we were using a labeler, so one consumable item was created every time we labeled a package. Today we use hot melt ink directly projected on the cardboard allows us to add traceability to the packages, which we did not have before.”
