GERMANY –All4Labels Global Packaging Group is expanding its intelligent QR solutions and cloud services with the launch of a brand called QR-Marketing.

All4Labels says that QR Marketing, which was officially founded at the end of 2021, will allow it to offer a comprehensive range of secure and intelligent solutions for labels, packaging, and other applications.

The company adds that QR Marketing aims to ensure stronger brand protection and greater customer engagement through the latest technologies, apparently addressing fast-changing consumer demands.

According to All4Labels, QR Marketing will build on its investments in digitalization and technology to support customers in mitigating their risk exposure to counterfeiting and to increase both sales and consumer loyalty.

Anti-counterfeiting packaging solutions have been expanding rapidly in recent years – in part accelerated by new challenges associated with the COVID-19 pandemic – with Smithers predicting that the track-and-trace packaging industry is set to reach a total value of US$2.5 billion by 2027.

QR Marketing will reportedly combine modern IT software skills with All4Labels’ existing experience in digital printing to generate, manage, and analyze unique ID Tags, which the company says can be integrated into the label or packaging design through variable data printing.

According to the company, this will enable applications such as brand protection, user verification of integrity, grey market monitoring, track and trace solutions, 24/7 retail, and personalized marketing measures to increase consumer engagement.

The company adds that it will use a secure cloud platform and utilize networking technologies including QR, NFC, RFID, and eRFID.

Adrian Tippenhauer, CEO at All4Labels said: “All4Labels acts as a pioneer in sustainable and digital packaging solutions. QR Marketing combines these two pillars by offering comprehensive solutions to connect physical products with digital content to our clients and beyond.

“Intelligent packaging solutions enabling brand protection and customer engagement will be key for brands to stay ahead of grey markets and their competitors.”

Commenting on the same, Nicolas Günther, Managing Director at QR Marketing and All4Labels Smart + Secure concluded: “We are very pleased to further expand the portfolio of intelligent solutions of All4Labels together with the QR Marketing unit and to offer our customers real added value.

“Thanks to innovative ID Tags and Cloud Services, QR Marketing makes it possible to interact with consumers, personalize the user experience and protect products and brands from counterfeits.”

All4Labels acquires Carlucci

Meanwhile, earlier this month, the German company completed the acquisition of Italian Carlucci.

Based in Pomezia, near Rome ( Italy ), Carlucci manufactures adhesive labels for the pharmaceutical industry and, to a lesser extent, for the product markets, hygiene and personal care, food and beverages.

This acquisition marks the eighth company to be incorporated by All4Labels since last October, including the German Labelprint24 and Packaging Warehouse as well as the Danish Limo Labels.
