Thinfilm partners with Prime Vision

Thinfilm, a global leader in NFC (near field communication) smart-packaging solutions using printed electronics, has announced a partnership with Prime Vision, a leading solutions provider for the postal, parcel, logistics and airport markets. The two companies are collaborating to deliver innovative smart-packaging solutions across the broader mail and parcel industry. Dutch postal operator PostNL is a majority shareholder in Prime Vision.

Thinfilm and Prime Vision will leverage Thinfilm’s NFC tags – both SpeedTap and OpenSense – in helping address key postal- and logistics-related needs. Applications will initially target increased mail/parcel security, enhanced e-commerce functionality, and improved consumer communication.

Each SpeedTap and OpenSense tag is uniquely identifiable and virtually impossible to clone, and can be read with the simple tap of an NFC-enabled smartphone or device. Once tapped, tags wirelessly communicate with the cloud, empowering organizations to connect directly with consumers to instantly deliver authentication messages, serial numbers, and other relevant content. OpenSense technology also offers additional protection against package tampering and fraud.

Prime Vision provides solutions and has consulted on postal and logistics innovation projects for a large number of national postal organizations, including Austria Post, Australia Post, PostNord, Swiss Post, and Slovenia Post. 

Eddy Thans, CEO of Prime Vision, said, “For postal and parcel delivery services, providing confirmation to customers that a package has not been tampered with during transport can be a game changer. But that capability is essentially non-existent in the industry today. With Thinfilm’s NFC technology, our postal and logistics customers will soon be able to track the exact route of delivery and instantly confirm – with the simple tap of a smartphone – that their package has not been opened.”

Davor Sutija, CEO of Thinfilm, added, “In working closely with Prime Vision, we are very excited to deliver innovative NFC solutions that help postal and logistics providers provide an even more compelling experience to their customers.”
