Will Differentiate and Add Value to its Personal Protective Equipment
TULSA, OK / ACCESSWIRE / February 8, 2021 / Renavotio, Inc. (OTCQB:RIII) (the "Company"), a holding company focused on infrastructure opportunities including personal protective equipment, 5G, utility construction, utility management, IoT, water, and waste management technology, is pleased to announce it has entered into a Marketing and Distribution Agreement with VerifyMe, Inc. (NASDAQ:VRME), a provider of anti-counterfeiting and brand protection solutions.
This new partnership enables Renavotio as a global representative to promote, market, distribute and sell VerifyMe products as an enhancement to its personal protection equipment products ("PPE"), including face masks, gloves, gowns, goggles, and face shields, to ensure the authenticity and origin.
Counterfeits have been a major issuer confronting the massive and growing demand for PPE. According to The Wall Street Journal from February 4, 2021, "Millions of Counterfeit Masks Flooded U.S. Customs Facilities Last Year."
Billy Robinson, Renavotio’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The massive demand for PPE over the past year has spurred a major problem of fraudulent and counterfeit products. As we seek to establish ourselves in the industry, we wanted to differentiate ourselves and add value to our suppliers and customers. Having been a victim of counterfeit N95 masks, Renavotio sought out VerifyMe’s technology to implement in all of its sales channels the authenticity of its products from VerifyMe. The VerifyMe technology will allow Renavotio to be able to represent to its clients as to the authenticity of any product it represented through VerifyMe. We believe that partnering with VerifyMe and incorporating their anti-counterfeiting and brand protection solutions into our products will position us for potential revenue growth. We look forward to the immediate rollout of this integrated offering to the global markets."
VerifyMe’s secure cloud-based track-and-trace technology is fixed onto products to protect them from counterfeiting. This typically includes invisible, non-replicable unique codes that can be scanned by warehouse distributors and retail companies to indicate if goods in the supply chain were tampered with. This technology protects products throughout the retail supply chain. It also can be used via visible QR codes that consumers can easily scan with a smartphones. This will allow customs and the purchasers to scan the code with their smartphone and verify its authenticity on the spot. This also gives brands direct engagement with the end-user and provides opportunities for marketing with coupons or storytelling by the manufacturer.
All the data is stored in the cloud and is easily accessible by all the stakeholders. Product and supply chain transparency continues to be essential for consumers and brands. VerifyMe and Renavotio plan to initially target the Personal Protection Equipment Industries both in the U.S. and abroad to test and use the technology to protect against counterfeiters and push branding messages out to consumers.
Patrick White , VerifyMe’s Chief Executive Officer, commented, "The pandemic has changed the way consumers purchase products and the uptick in e-commerce purchases along with Americans’ heightened price sensitivities has given a boost to the counterfeit market. As more purchases have moved online, the ability for sales of counterfeit products from unfamiliar websites or purchasing from unauthenticated vendors has increased the consumer’s risk. More and more global governments are requiring counterfeit prevention technology on PPE products prior to entering their ports of entry. By partnering with Renavotio the expanded direct marketing of the VerifyMe technology and offering VerifyMe certified products on Renavotio’s planned e-commerce site brings opportunities of new business and consumer protection of PPE products for its global customers."
