  • By Apiwat Thongprasert, Sr. Business Development Manager.

    Abstract • Connecting both product authentication and smart advertisement, the two distinct functions,

    together shall enhance a brand, one by assisting sales, the other by protecting the genuine product through smartphone based intelligence packaging scheme.

    • Counterfeiting is a rapidly growing worldwide problem in accordance with a rapid growth of world trade and e-commerce. Among several promising technologies, RFID tag plays an increasingly important role as a security countermeasure for counterfeiting, theft and tampering of product packaging. Currently several models of smartphones provide the embedded NFC function that around communication with tag easily.

    • In addition to providing a way to protect consumers from buying fake goods, retailers and brand owners may also encourage consumers to purchase their authentic products by providing special treatment, promotions, and vouchers through their product packaging. Retailers and brand owners may offer their consumers an “interactive experience” by smart advertisement. Campaigns that provide an incentive for participation, especially, are a great way to engage a consumer while minimizing the chance that he or she will consider your promotion annoying and invasive.

    • Therefore, apart from appearance and design, the future packaging that provides customers more information, more protection, and more interaction are rapidly gained interest.
