Easy assurance of product authenticity
When your greatest asset is your good name, it’s worth protecting.
Textrace and Impinj provide a fully integrated solution that identifies and authenticates items using RAIN RFID. This technology protects your products against counterfeiting and return fraud. Brand owners use it to validate the authenticity of items and can then take action against unauthorized resellers.
During the manufacturing process a special brand label is added to your products. The TexTrace woven RAIN RFID labels features the high performing Impinj Monza tag chip. Each label is encoded with a serialized unique identification number so it can be individually tracked through the supply chain to the point of sale.
Enable your sales teams with easy-to-use tools for authenticating items
The TexTrace eBRAND portal allows associates and brand scouts to use mobile devices to verify and validate the origin and authenticity of products in the field.
- Ensure the authenticity of your branded products and protect their value
- Monitor your sales channels and goods as they move through markets
- Protect your resellers and customers from fraud and criminal activities
- Identify grey market goods and the source of those products entering the market
Store employees or brand scouts use a mobile device to read the RAIN RFID label data and run a verification process to check the authenticity and credentials of the product.
Protect your products to protect their value
Grey markets can erode the standing of a brand, lower consumer trust, and devalue products. By ensuring the authenticity of your brand, both businesses and consumers can rest assured only products produced to standard are on shelves.
Always know where your inventory is
The same technology used to authenticate your products also lets you track their movement through the supply chain. This allows for absolute assurance of their authenticity, as well as visibility into your distribution and supply chain.
Fight criminal activity and fraud
Easy authentication discourages return fraud and grey market sellers, but verification technology can also reveal how counterfeit goods enter the market. This reaps benefits not just for consumers, and resellers, but the industry overall.
With an interwoven textile antenna and an integrated Impinj Monza chip, the TexTrace brand label acts as a passive RAIN RFID transponder that complies with ISO/IEC 18000-63 and the EPCglobal UHF Gen2 standard.
TexTrace RAIN RFID tags are woven into labels during manufacturing for ultimate traceability.
