Transparency, Traceability & Trust for Brands and Manufacturers

Consumer brands face an uncertain world of reduced consumer loyalty and trust. Digimarc Barcode delivers a better barcode to strengthen brands.


Digimarc Barcode for Packaging

Digimarc Barcode on product packaging helps brands promote direct customer communication, implement product transparency initiatives, including SmartLabel®, and improve manufacturing processes such as parts-matching systems. Digimarc Barcode is an unobtrusive element of packaging artwork, utilized by brands like Campbell’s and Barilla, for more reliable and efficient scanning by shoppers with phones and high-speed cameras. Brand managers and marketing professionals can use Digimarc Barcode as a single solution – and an alternative to cumbersome QR codes – to convey product information, mandatory bioengineering disclosures and consumer promotions while retaining the branded elegance of their packaging artwork.


Traceability Product Transparency

The reality today is that brands must provide more insight into what’s in products, and how and where they were made. People care about what they consume, and because they expect nearly instant access to information, the best consumer brands need to provide transparency fast. Digimarc delivers SmartLabel with scanning integrated into the official SmartLabel app, enabling consumers to instantly access product transparency information. Digimarc Barcode is also a USDA-approved digital technology for disclosing products containing bioengineered foods.

Increase Transparency

Inventory Management

Consumer brands need a more reliable and accurate way to collect product data in-store or across the supply chain. Microsoft integrated Digimarc’s scanning software into OneCore, the common Operating System (OS) core utilized by all versions of Windows®. Digimarc and Microsoft allow brands to better track their products through their suppliers, retail partners and third-party logistics providers. Digimarc’s barcode scanning hardware partners can help brands work retailers in support of store audits/inventory management initiatives.
