CODIPRO and Telindus create an innovative tracing tool based on the blockchain

Theirs goals

With the CODITRACER project, the company’s objectives were to ensure:


• Component traceability
o CODIPRO rings comply with the safety requirements of the industrial
standard EN1677-1 and are subject to strict regular checks. In order to ensure the traceability of its products, CODIPRO has implemented since 2008 an individual marking of each of its rings.


• Document traceability
o CODIPRO lifting rings must comply with the European directive 2006/42/
CE concerning machines. A declaration of conformity and operating instructions must accompany each delivery. The manufacturer must be clearly identified.


• Product authentication
o make product traceability reliable and tamper-proof
o guarantee to customers the original character of the products
o combating counterfeiting


• Accessibility of documentation
o make the documents that accompany the products accessible to all, at all
times


• Reducing the environmental footprint
o ensure better management of documentation and packaging


• Improve market knowledge
o broaden and deepen the knowledge of the use of lifting rings
o enrich the knowledge of customers and partners
o improve the company’s ability to offer innovative products

The challenge

  • Digitize product tracking and management processes throughout their life cycle

  • Increase the speed of processing client and partner requests

  • Dematerialize documentation:reduce the use of paper for documents that must accompany products to facilitate filing and archiving, and avoid loss of documents

    Also, meet the packaging reduction requirements of the European Directive 2018/852

The solutions

  • The meeting with Telindus, through the Fédération des Industriels Luxembourgeois (FEDIL), allowed CODIPRO to concretize the realization of a digital tool for tracing its products

    • Development by Telindus of the CODITRACER tool based on its blockchain platform, TraceChain.
    o Based on Stellar blockchain technology, Telindus’ TraceChain platform enables the tracing of high quality items from manufacturing, distribution, maintenance and shrinkage.


    Integration of the blockchain solution with CODIPRO’s ERP and CRM systems

The results

CODIPRO now has a tool at the forefront of technological innovation, CODITRACER, which ensures the authentication,traceability and immutability of the information relating to its lifting rings. The solution is accessible through two interfaces:


• A mobile application for smartphone and tablet, available on App Store and Google Play, which gives access to technical information and documentation based on a reference number engraved on the ring. In addition, the application also enables the product warranty to be activated;
• A web portal which, in addition to the functionalities offered by the mobile application, allows the various parties involved in the block chain to follow the product’s path with great precision, from shipment to use, including the intermediate stages of distribution.

The benefits for CODIPRO

  • Process optimization

  • Increased speed of processing requests and orders

  • Reinforcement of the image of an innovative company and affirmation of market leadership position

  • Better knowledge of the market and end customers
