Key Components

At the core of the Protokol Digital Product Passport are mechanisms to significantly improve the traceability, transparency and tradability of physical luxury goods and products.

Traceability

Information related to raw material origin, component sourcing and supplier networks is captured and stored. This verifies that sustainability criteria and ethical standards were met throughout the entire manufacturing process whilst proving authenticity — combatting counterfeits.

Transparency

Full details of all timepiece lifecycle events such as repairs, services and upgrades are captured and updated via an associated online account. Further to this, original warranty information and manufacturer guarantees can also be stored and easily accessed via an application.

Tradability

Details on current and historical ownership along with a chronological list of owner transactions and exchanges between buyers and sellers are captured on the Digital Product Passport. Through the same app, current owners can easily initiate new transactions – optimising the resale process.

Protokol Digital Product Passport Benefits

A transparent overview of a product’s lifecycle provides buyers with increased trust and confidence when making purchase decisions as they are provided a guarantee as to a product’s authenticity, sustainability and state.

By combating against the forgery and counterfeit market – brands are able to protect both their brand and their customers through ensuring the legitimacy of products being sold and resold.

Enabling oversight of events and transactions throughout a product’s lifecycle and providing customers/buyers with full visibility of this data protects the value of the product by providing clarity related to a product’s source, status or history.

Organisations are provided with a mechanism for proving that they comply with both ethical and sustainable sourcing and practices with secure data detailing the sourcing of raw materials and the manufacturing process.

How It Works

Protokol’s fully customisable Digital Product Passport solution features secure and immutable digital twins of physical products, viewable by both luxury brands and their customers via the dedicated applications.

Use-Cases

Provable Sustainability

The Protokol Digital Product Passport enables luxury goods brands to both trace the source and prove the sustainability of their products. Data relating to provenance of raw materials, manufacturing, batch details and more are recorded on a transparent yet immutable blockchain, where data cannot be overwritten or forged. This allows brands to prove sustainable sourcing practices for their goods to auditors, regulators and consumers alike.

Digital Twins

A secure Digital Twin of a physical product is created using the Protokol Digital Product Passport. The Digital Twin is a unique digital representation of each individual product. Data on a product’s lifecycle, ownership and source can be easily and securely recorded, and is easily accessible for both brands and customers . Plus, unlike physical certificates, digital twins cannot be forged, replicated, damaged or destroyed.

Identify Counterfeits

Authenticity of a product is provable with the Protokol Digital Product Passport. For brands such as fashion where counterfeiting is a huge challenge, product passports quickly and easily determine not only whether a product is authentic, but can even verify ownership (while protecting the owner’s personal details). The ability to present the digital passport alongside the linked physical product will enable brands and consumers alike to effectively combat the counterfeit market.

Resale Verification

As resale markets for luxury goods continue to grow, so too does the need for a tool that can rapidly and accurately authenticate goods. Not only does the Protokol Digital Product Passport enable customers to verify the authenticity of their goods before transferring ownership; but the fast and easy verification of second-hand goods generates real opportunities for luxury brands themselves to unlock new revenue streams in profitable resale markets.

Elevating the Omnichannel Customer Experience

Next-gen loyalty programs, embedded communication/marketing channels, and NFT digital asset functionality can be built into the Digital Product Passport — both offering enhanced customer experiences and entry into the Metaverse used to engage younger audiences.
