QodeNext as an entity will focus on Traceability as the next Growth Driver

Traceability can be defined as a solution that has the ability to trace the entire product lifecycle from the origin of raw material, through work-in-process, finished goods, distribution to end customer. If companies are able to successfully implement traceability, it would result in increased business intelligence, faster on-time deliveries, higher customer satisfaction and improved sales.

QodeNext’s propriety software of Unique Identity Creation generates the highest number of Unique IDs in India. The solution starts from vendor management to work in process to warehouse to dispatch to yard to end customer. Besides increasing the operational efficiency, implementing production agility and business visibility, the software goes the extra mile to provide anti-counterfeit, customer loyalty and warranty solutions.

Today, traceability is also being used to effectively manage recalls across the automobile, electronics, and food production industry. With recalls negatively impacting brand perception, profitability and share price, QodeNext has developed a robust solution for traceability to investigate, pinpoint and isolate the root cause of a recall problem.

Additionally, the Government of India is also mandating traceability to maintain higher levels of transparent and quality standards with GST, Excise Supply Chain Information Management System, DGFT Export Compliance, etc. QodeNext works with the respective governing bodies to aid in the implementation of these projects.
