Product Description

Xylene is a digital toolkit for companies to gain transparency and
control over their supply chain. This is achieved through three

  • Supply Chain Mapping & Risk Assessment: visualising the supply
    chain offers central companies not only an overview of where
    suppliers are located and where material is sourced from, it also
    allows for decisions based on risk assessment.
  • Product Flow Tracking: physical products are labelled and
    tracked along the supply chain from the source to the consumer.
    Information is connected to the product; it is passed between
    stakeholders using blockchain and its authenticity is validated
    through satellite data.
  • Customer Engagement: being able to connect the journey of a
    product to the point of sales leads to added value of the final
Reach Timeline
