Counterfeiting is a huge financial and safety risk for a variety of industries including food, pharmaceutical, medical devices, and aerospace. One estimate asserts that 10 percent of consumer purchased food in the developed world is adulterated and a 2011 US government investigation found over 1,000,000 (one million) counterfeit incidents for US Military aircraft alone.

THe problem has always been the complexities, costs, the ease of circumventing anti-counterfeiting measures has frustrated the adoption of counter measures.

Case Study #1 - Stopping Counterfeiting

A well known chemical supplier was alerted to a counterfeiting problem when a customer returned product with quality issues. Although the products labels and paperwork appeared to be authentic, the supplier had not produced it.

The originally considered anti-counterfeiting techniques required either special equipment and/or cumbersome processes and training on the part of both the supplier and customer.

QRnotes allowed the supplier to add anti-counterfeiting measures without requireing special traingin or equipment. The process was simple.

  1. PrePrint a number of QRnotes labels : The supplier began by using the QRnotes label printing web page to preprint postage stamp size validation labels ("validation labels" is an option on the label website)

  2. Just to be obvious : while NOT needed - supplier attached oridnary 2"x2" black & yellow safty stickers with "Scan to validate not counterfeit" text on their product

  3. Attach validation label : supplier placed a validation sticker in the middle od the 2x2 safety sticker

  4. The "training" :Customers were notified by email the new practice was being implemented , it was appended to all shipping docuemnts and , where pratical, a notification label was placed on the product

    It is worth noting that most receiving personnel learned how to validate by reading the supplier's label - not internal communications

  5. The receiving /QC process : before a product was receieved in to customer's "avaialble" inventory an operator scanned the QRnotes label with their smartphone , and the QRnotes program will verify the product was real, the originating supplier, they item had not been received to its' final destination another company, and anyother location the product wass scanned at.

  6. The optional 'closeout' : after scanning the QRnote and being assured validity, etc by the website the receiver may optionally press the 'End User' button to signify that this QRnote has been received at it's final destination. After that, should anyone try to reuse the valid label they will be warned

Case Study #2 - Stop counterfeiting, create "follower" documentation

A food ingredient supplier was originally interested in an anti-counterfeiting solution, but discovered QRnotes capabilities as a "product documentation" system.

The supplier was required to provide a variety of documentation such as lab results (COA-certificates of analysis), country of origin, etc.

QRnotes allowed the supplier to add anti-counterfeiting measures without requireing special traingin or equipment. The process was simple.

  1. PrePrint a number of QRnotes labels : The supplier began by using the QRnotes label printing web page to preprint postage stamp size validation labels ("validation labels" is an option on the label website)

  2. Just to be obvious : While NOT needed - supplier attached oridnary 2"x2" black & yellow safety stickers with "Scan to validate not counterfeit" text on their product

  3. Attach validation label :Supplier placed a validation sticker in the middle od the 2x2 safety sticker

  4. The "training" :Customers were notified by email that the new practice was being implemented , it was appended to all shipping docuemnts and , where pratical, a notification label was placed on the product

    If the customer does NOT scan, there was no negative impact other than the lack of anti-counterfeiting validation.

    It is worth noting that most receiving personnel learned how to validate with QRnotes by reading the supplier's label - not internal communications

  5. The receiving/QC process : Before a product was receieved in to customer's "avaialble" inventory an operator scanned the QRnotes label with their smartphone , and the QRnotes program verifies the product is authentic, the originating supplier, that the item had not been received to its' final destination another by a previous company, and any other locations the product was previously scanned.

  6. The optional 'closeout' : After scanning the QRnote and being assured validity, etc by the website, the receiver may optionally press the 'End User' button to signify that this QRnote has been received at it's final destination. After that, should anyone try to reuse the valid label they will be warned
