Tripple Gee & Company Plc will this week launch an anti-counterfeiting solution aimed at boosting the business of the security printing company.
The application, known as tru-Data, is designed to protect true identity of sensitive documents and prevent counterfeiting. It will be unveiled at the fourth ID4Africa Exhibition in Abuja between April 24 and 26.
Tripple Gee & Company Plc Vice Chairman, Chief Gbade Giwa described the product as a revolutionary product needed to fight identity theft and counterfeiting of sensitive documents.
According to him, with the new solution, fraudulent attacks can easily be detected when the encryption of the critical data of the document is decrypted using the app, which is freely available on the Google Playstore, to confirm the authenticity of the document.
“What is more, the picture of the original owner of the document can also be encrypted making ID theft absolutely impossible. The encryption could be on documents such as certificates from tertiary institutions, birth certificates, Corporate Affairs Commission (CAC) Certificate, Certificate of Occupancy (C of O), ID cards among others,” Giwa said.
He noted that the app, which is powered by HD Barcode Technology, is the first of series of products Tripple Gee plans to launch into the Nigerian marketplace.
“Tru-Data has many benefits as it can capture images and longer texts-172 times more than normal QR code, and ZIP files. It makes quick verification of documents possible and eliminates counterfeit of products in circulation. You do not need internet or data connection to verify a document. Verify-on-the Go, anytime and anywhere. It is good for identifying original Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) products. It is a must-have for organisation which wants brand protection and anti-counterfeiting. We highly recommend it to tertiary institutions, human resources managers, government agencies and private organisations,” Giwa said.
