Varcode’s solution relies on “smart barcode” tags that dynamically change based on customized time and temperature parameters. The labels use a combination of precisely tuned chemicals and a uniquely printed layer to capture temperature variances when and where they occur and create a permanent, irreversible digital record accessed by Varcode’s proprietary smartphone app. Varcode’s Smart tags are operationally easy to implement and are cost effective enough to be used at the unit level. Varcode’s digital records are cloud based and accessible from the point of processing through customer delivery.
