FCE Platform offers full digitization and automation of confusing and complex supply chain tracking and blockchain document storage. Instant communication and constant updating of information available to manufacturers, warehouse workers, logisticians, merchandisers, and sellers. Every movement and change are immediately available to all authorized users.
To manage complex paperwork, FCE Platform provides tools for digital document flow including digital signature, remote verification of documents, remote personal identification.
The problem of mistrust FCE solves with the implementation of blockchain technology - a system of storage of information that cannot be faked. The manufacturer or distributor using such a system is trustworthy by default. This means an easy search for partners and new business connections.
How does FCE fight to counterfeit?
To get rid of counterfeit and dangerous products and protect the brand, FCE brings the equipment to track product flows in a constant mode. This not only saves resources, allows the company to plan and manage supply chains as efficiently as possible, but also makes the appearance of unauthorized products in the supply chain impossible. The fastest possible product recall and detection of counterfeits protect the brand and its reputation.
How does FCE help local producers?
The implementation of FCE products gives more freedom of action and fairer pay for local producers. Violated local value chain does not allow to receive decent payment to small producers and farmers who do not have access to a large market. Digitalization will prove the quality of products, raise its value, and extend the supply chain, finding new partners.
How does FCE bring manufacturers and end consumers closer?
FCE also builds a direct link between the manufacturer and the end consumer. IT implementation makes possible digital product data verification, supply flexibility, and D2C marketing. The rapprochement with the buyer is one of the key areas for the movement of the business. The constant analysis helps to subtly feel and adapt to consumer requests.
Do I need special software to use the Platform?
We have developed the application for monitoring detailed movements of the product, its presence, and its condition by scanning RFID-tags. We designed it for manufacturers, logisticians, and merchandizers to directly work with the product throughout the supply chain. Ordinary consumers will be able to get full information about the product by scanning the QR code at the stores.
Can I embed the tracking system in my web resources?
Yes, it is possible to embed the display of information through the API and develop a separate web interface.
How is product data reliable?
The manufacturer applies RFID-tags with unique numbers on their products, and with every automatic scanning through sensors information comes directly to the blockchain and the cloud FCE server. If there are questionable manipulations with goods equipped with RFID tags, the system fixes them and transfer to the blockchain, where it is impossible to forge information.
Is it secure to use the FCE Platform?
The security of the platform is ensured by the fact that the information is sent to the cloud servers of FCE, backed by the blockchain.
What do I have to do to gain access to information about the movement of my goods?
We develop its own algorithm to make the database and track the product for each manufacturer, distributor, retailer, merchandiser.
Who can see the movement of my goods?
The movement of goods can be made both private - visible only to the corporate customer - and public, where the information will be available to everyone.
What information about my product can be obtained with IoT devices?
With the help of IoT devices, you can get almost any set of information collected by IoT sensors, for example, about the current state of the product: the parameters of the environment (air temperature, humidity, CO2, acidity, etc), the coordinates of the product. Information is collected and sent to the blockchain automatically, making manipulations impossible.
How much does a solution cost?
For each customer, the cost will be calculated individually. The cost of the solution will depend on the setting of the technical task, the volume of deliveries, and other factors.
What time will the development and implementation take place?
It depends on the volume of development and individual features of the company.
