The engagement platform is a set of mobile tools for consumer goods manufacturers looking to engage resellers on a large scale. It provides a convenient way to educate, motivate, and audit remote sites that would otherwise be burdensome to reach.

The mobile UI can be configured to provide different features and/or branding (including temporary campaign content) based on user group or geographical area. Notable features include GPS-based location verification, automated picture recognition, web shop and support for consumer mystery shopping.

The product lifecycle management is a platform benefiting both the producer of goods, the consumer and everyone else in between. Being able to follow the lifecycle of a product, companies get insight in how their products reach their customer. The customer in turn gets to be more aware and involved in product origins and production.
By attaching smart data matrix codes to products on the production line, products are registered on a cloud-based IoT-platform. After registering, product data can be accessed and updated at any point of the product’s lifecycle. The producer side can use this to manage transport and storage of goods. Additionally, the solution integrates into our transport management system and can be integrated into Visma Nova ERP software.
The platform is being developed and piloted as part of the TagItSmart EU project. It is a proof-of-concept for smart tag based IoT solution for mass market products.

TMS is a transport management system especially meant for dealing with time-sensitive and high value transports that in many cases are business-critical. It aims to improve reliability and readiness by utilizing item-level tracking, picture proofs and proactive alerts throughout all phases of the transport.
The system is cloud-based and ordinary mobile phones are used for tracking in the field. Picture proof of storage or cargo conditions can be required at any step of the transport. In case of delay or damage, the information is immediately available for both recipient, sender and the transport company management with options for automatic email and SMS alerts.
The system has been successfully piloted with border crossing and multimodal transports (truck and ferry) between Finland and Sweden.
