Whitepaper - Biometric fingerprint identifiers driving value in the exotic leather industry

news whitepaper ufi

The overall objective of this whitepaper is to provide insights on significant technical and business results following a global traceability project. We identify reptile skins serving the purpose of securing a transparent and verifiable value chain from the production of skins (abattoir and/or farm) up to the final product in real-time.

The designed solution comprises traceability and data management components to effectively and transparently track reptile skins in real-time, and supports remote access, coupled with an authentication system that protects commercially sensitive information and also manages user-specific privileges.  The global traceability information system relies on a secure central database that can be easily accessed in real-time. Information in the database covers the entire value chain from the upstream hunters and/or farms all the way to the downstream final product, or “from cradle to grave”.

Wine, Spirits and Alcohol - End-to-End Production and Supply Chain Management

news wine

S4GV has been particularly successful in addressing the needs of different actors in the Spirits & Alcohol industry and specifically with wine: we have recently signed a deal to fully manage the grapevine grafting operations for a customer in the USA. We've also managed for years the warehousing operations of Soutirage, a very high-end premium wine reseller; Chad Meyer, Soutirage CEO, says: "Our focus is on advising, building and maintaining collections for private clients, with average bottle prices in the hundreds of dollars. At Soutirage, every bottle counts. We demand unparalleled granular visibility into our supply chain and our own warehousing. Thanks to S4GV's RFID automation, tamper-evident labels and 3PL, our inventory is maintained at 100% accuracy on a daily basis. A full cycle count takes just a few hours, so we can focus more time on relationships."

It is therefore with great motivation that we have built an environment specifically designed to cover the needs for high-end grafts and wine producers, providing full end-to-end traceability and certifying to customers with sky-high expectations that all has been done thoughout the chain to guarantee the highest standards of quality.
