Royal Joh. Enschedé has acquired a majority stake in AntTail, a Dutch technology company. As an independent international player in the field of high security printing and security solutions, Royal Joh. Enschedé wants to broaden its services with digital transport security solutions and the authenticity of high quality production and products. AntTail provides solutions to monitor supply chains with sensors and cloud services. A complete audit trail is available from the manufacturer to the receiver, which prevents counterfeiting.
Royal Joh. Enschedé distinguishes itself with its current products and services and delivers secure printed material with a high level of reliability according to customers’ specifications and planning. The company wishes to expand its security services with the addition of digital communication.
As a service provider, AntTail has experience monitoring shipments using sensors and services to register and validate deliveries. With a focus on the pharmaceutical market, where falsification of medicines occurs, quality assurance of the products can often be of vital importance. This knowledge and experience will now be available to Royal Joh. Enschedé. The customer base of AntTail includes multinationals such as MSD and Ingersoll Rand. On 24 May 2018, AntTail received the Internet of Things Award 2018 from the IoT Journaal.
AntTail makes the logistic chain transparent. The products and services developed and delivered by AntTail monitor the temperature of medicine during transport and storage from manufacturer to end user. Thanks to smart sensors, companies in the pharmaceutical industry, health care providers and transport and logistic service providers can track the temperature of their shipments online and safeguard their quality. AntTail’s cloud solutions and “Secure SaaS-service” work with existing solutions in the “cold chain”, making complex implementations and pre-investments a thing of the past.
