Clients stand to benefit from seamless connectivity between Kezzler and Laetus platforms, creating an integrated end-to-end traceability solution from two market leaders – from factory floor to the cloud.
Oslo, Norway & Alsbach-Hähnlein, Germany, January 28, 2021 – Kezzler, the world leading cloud-based traceability platform, and Laetus, a leader in inline quality control and track & trace systems, today announced the signing of a new partnership agreement.
The partnership enables both parties to jointly offer an end-to-end solution for product serialization and traceability across the whole supply chain, from manufacturing to the end consumer experience. With a combined 65 years of expertise, Kezzler and Laetus are able to deliver a seamless solution with one service level agreement and one support organization with a global reach.
Prior to the agreement, both companies designed, tested and implemented an integration layer between Laetus‘ unified platform (UP) for track & trace applications and Kezzler’s cloud-based enterprise platform for product digitization and traceability.
