Theseus™ Track & Trace System
THESEUS™ is an integrated track & trace solution helping the government improve excise duty collection and minimize product counterfeit, contraband and parallel trading by enabling tracking of each saleable item from its point of origin to the point of sale. The system can also be applied as an anti-counterfeit solution not related to taxation for such market segments as pharmaceutical. Not only is THESEUS™ a means of maximizing tax collection and reducing counterfeit, it is also a tool the government can use to boost public confidence. THESEUS™ includes an open Internet interface which enables any member of the public to verify that the product he/she has purchased is both genuine and duty-paid. THESEUS™ uses high-security labels with holographic and security print features, carrying two-dimensional QR-format barcodes with item-specific information. The codes are protected from unauthorized access and reproduction by state-of-the-art electronic digital signature (EDS) technology.
