Topic: Protecting brands with instrumentation and controls
Whether you know it or not, many of the products we use in our daily lives are under constant attack. Unscrupulous counterfeiters and corrupt middlemen are making it increasingly difficult for brand owners to ensure that genuine products are delivered to the intended customers through a legitimate supply chain. Come learn how leading manufacturers are recognizing the value of Track and Trace technology to prevent theft , manage inventory, facilitate recalls, and identify counterfeit goods. See the role that automation and control systems play in protecting both people and brands in today’s global market.
