Systech International and Toppan Printing Co., Ltd. Partner to Deliver Brand Protection Solutions
11 October 2017
Systech International, a global technology leader in product safety, and consumer and brand protection, and Toppan, a leading integrated printing company and innovator in product packaging and security solutions, today announced a strategic agreement. The accord allows Toppan to serve as a Systech preferred partner to market UniSecure™ in Japan and other Asian-Pacific markets.
"Our developing strategic relationship with Toppan is important to our company. Toppan's dominant global presence, their endless devotion to quality, and continual delivery of excellence are well known. We are proud they have recognized Systech's advanced technology and established leadership in the pharmaceutical industry," states Scott Magnacca, Senior Vice President and General Manager, UniSecure, at Systech.
Systech UniSecure is the only proven, non-additive product authentication solution that leverages existing product barcodes and packaging to create a unique signature that cannot be duplicated, hence ensuring product authenticity.
Print operations are dynamic, whereby environmental factors combine to produce micro-variations or "noise" in printed marks. These variations are random, unique, and beyond controllable resolution of any printer. UniSecure takes advantage of these variations by detecting measurable patterns and harnessing them to generate an inherent, covert security feature from existing package print marks.
The ability to uniquely identify and authenticate individual products is the only path to mitigate counterfeit and diversion risks in the supply chain, while protecting brand equity and enabling consumer safety.
Akihisa Yamamoto, Senior General Manager, Security Product Development at Toppan, says "We are extremely excited to partner with Systech. They have created an outstanding third-generation technology that will be a true differentiator in the brand protection and consumer engagement field, offering immense advantages over conventional authentication solutions in terms of security, implementation, and consumer usage. We believe there is a tremendous market for this technology in Asia."
