Authentication and consumer engagement solutions creator YPB Group Limited (ASX: YPB) is pleased to announce that it has received approval from Apple to release its UnifAI application to the APP store and at the same time it will be released to the Google Play store. There will be no charge to download the UnifAI app at this release.
YPB UnifAI APP
Originally developed as the MotifMicro app, UnifAI has been extended to now be an all-in-1 app powering smartphone access to each of our MotifMicro®, YPB Tracer® and ProtectCode® consumer engagement and authentication technologies.
The development of the UnifAI APP is a major success for our tech team and has potentially profound commercial significance. It enables any scan to confirm authenticity using any of YPB’s authentication technologies to generate valuable consented first-party data.
This first-party data is generated by the act of scanning at any point in a supply chain, at the point of sale or the point of consumption. The YPB UnifAI APP then provides wireless connectivity between the scanning device and YPB Connect, allowing the consented capture and analysis of the data. This data capture and analysis creates significant value for YPB’s customers as it offers visibility as to where, when and by whom interactions are occurring with their products. This data is otherwise generally not available or, if it is, it is difficult and expensive to collect.
From YPB’s perspective, the addition of this digital transfer technology and smartphone interface to all products via YPB UnifAI APP has allowed our entire product suite (and future innovations) to be integrated into YPB Connect, our Global Dashboard, potentially producing benefits including:

Cut out counterfeit attempts? Reid Fruits and Laava show it’s possible
Over three years, Reid Fruits drastically reduced the number of counterfeit attempts on their premium Tasmanian cherries, sold in Asian export markets where the brand was in high demand and had a strong reputation that was at risk from inferior products sold under fake Reid Fruits branding.
In the 2019-20 season, in a bid to fight the fakes, Reid Fruits introduced Laava Smart Fingerprints® on its cherry boxes bound for 20 export markets. The result: only 10 counterfeit attempts, all of which were automatically stopped by the Laava platform.
