Twintag in action

A twintag is not just a QR code. It is a direct connection to whoever's holding that smartphone.

While we have an idea or two what to do with a twintag, we have been awestruck by the creative use cases our customers come up with. Below are a few examples demonstrating different use cases.


Give your customers insights into the origin of your product and offer an improved customer experience

authenticity & brand protection

Ensure customers that they are using a genuine product

PTR Holland is a leading global manufacturer of marine pilot ladders: the rope ladders that enable marine pilots to board large vessels to assist the crew with port navigation. A couple years ago, PTR Holland’s top quality reputation started triggering inferior counterfeit copies, with serious accidents as a consequence, as well as the threat of reputational damage to their brand.

Today, a unique twintag is attached to every ladder at production time and digitally connected to its individual certificate. When the ladder is finally installed on board of a vessel, the safety officer adds a picture of the ship’s name to the twintag with one simple smartphone scan. Next, the twintag is automatically sealed in a blockchain to provide independent proof of authenticity. Marine pilots can verify that authenticity with a single scan upon boarding the ship, and have been understandably happy about this life-saving evolution.

Business benefit: Zero counterfeits since go live.

asset inspection & management

Equip assets with twintags and make them a starting point to drive service value

Vinçotte is market leader in Belgium in asset inspection and certification, with more than half a million assets under their control, from elevators in buildings to forklifts and industrial ladders.

They are rolling out a Twintag-based program called Digi-Tags, offering broad functionalities depending on the persona scanning the twintag:

  • Upon his quarterly inspection, the inspector scans the Digi-Tag, and upon authentication he can read out all information on the asset, and update it if necessary;
  • The owner of the asset, when logged in, has another role and can see the information relevant to him. He can also add information for the inspector;
  • The general public can get generic information on the asset and also leave a remark, e.g. noting that the asset is damaged and adding a picture of the damage.
Business benefit: €7 saved and €3.5 value-add per asset per year.
