Automotive & Lubricants

The challenge: Product counterfeiting and grey market trade affect both the market for original automotive parts (OEM) and the independent aftermarket (IAM). Here, lack of transparency is often a major problem: How can the quantities from external suppliers be precisely controlled? How do you reach the decision-makers in workshops or in retail? And what possibilities are there to enrich products with additional benefits such as bonus systems for mechanics?

Whether for high-temperature lubricants, contact protection oil or performance brake pads, we secure your products with counterfeit-proof product identities – along the entire supply chain. Via our digital platform SCRIBOS 360, you can also offer your customers attractive reward systems for customer loyalty.
