Foundation The Ark decided to support the startup company that resulted from our research project Fairtrace. This grant will allow to enhance the software solutions towards their industrialization and the acquisition of the first customers.
Faitrace applies Semantic Web Technologies (SWT) to allow pragmatic traceability in supply-chains. Objectives are the identification of the supply-chain, order management, tracking and problem reporting (such as dangerous substance detection). It is intended to be a generic platform supporting potentially any kind of industrial supply-chain, to be usable in harsh environments (mobile appliances) without any kind of communications possibility and to be fully usable to non-IT people, including for the modeling of the production processes. The developed solutions also allow the consumer to benefit from the traceability through information pages available by scanning the QR codes available on the finished products (clothes, clocks, etc.).
