Product piracy damages the brand image of the manufacturer, leads to sales losses and represents a serious safety risk for the consumer. Authenticity Check (TecIdentify) is the first IT-based standard solution for the car spare parts industry, designed to test the authenticity of car parts. The products are marked with a world-unique identification number in the form of a MAPP code (Manufacturers Against Product Piracy). This code is captured by smartphone, scanner or by manual input and transferred to TecAlliance. Using it, any article can be checked in seconds – worldwide, 24 hours a day.
