GeoCertify’s Integrated Supply Chain provides a shared data resource for products moving from origin to final consumer. Agents along the supply chain contribute data and draw from this shared cloud-based repository.
The Integrated Supply Chain is unmatched for end-to-end traceability; it opens up a credible connection from producer to consumer in real time. It supports major improvements in supply chain efficiency, risk management, and identity and brand development.
A key issue in a global supply chain is data sovereignty. Data has value, and governments of origin nations consider aggregated production data to be of strategic interest; they have an interest in controlling access to this data.
To support this requirement, GeoCertify has engineered its Integrated Supply Chain using a distributed model.
This means segregated repositories can be used to store sovereign data. Repositories share data with one another as peers, according to well-defined policies.
This is where blockchain provides authentication—whenever peers share data, authentication is a requirement. GeoCertify has developed unique methods for peer-to-peer data sharing via blockchain.
