In 1999, Novatec, a private French laboratory, discovered by chance a “spontaneous” generation of bubbles in a polymer. What was initially considered a major defect in the electronic card manufacturing industry was ingeniously turned into a high-security technical solution: the Bubble Tag®.
In 2004, Novatec gave birth to Prooftag in order to develop the Bubble Tag® technology.
In 2008, Prooftag was the first company to market a concept of connected security allowing the unitary identification and authentication of products and documents.
In 2010 we delivered to our first clients in the wine industry a software dedicated to track & trace bottles on bottling and packaging lines. The S.O.D.A. software has quickly evolved into a MES (Manufacturing Execution System) specialized in the world of wines and spirits.
Nowadays, many wine growers in France, Italy, Spain and California use our software to pilot their production line.
In 2011, Prooftag is launching CertiDOCS, a software for securing and issuing documents. Several governments use this solution in a centralized or decentralized way to secure their official documents.
In 2012, Prooftag launches FiberTag®, a chaometric paper-based technology. Many international brands and several governments are using this technology.
In 2013 Prooftag launches the first IOT (Internet Of Things) platform on the market: Prooftag Cerv. Thanks to Prooftag Cerv, customers benefit from a web interface to manage the use of their tags in the field of security, traceability and data management.
In 2015 Prooftag innovates and develops the iCivil concept, the first CRVS for the identification of newborns and the creation of civil registers.
In 2017, CertiTRACK becomes the new track & trace software for production lines in perfect synchronization with the IOT platform, Prooftag Cerv.
In 2018, Prooftag inaugurates a new line of products by designing its first machine for applying security seals with the Seal Applicator. The Seal Applicator is quickly connected to the CertiTRACK software to create a ready-to-use offer for small and medium series projects.
In 2019 Prooftag reinvents the Bubble Seal. 12 years after its first application, the Bubble Seal becomes available in four-color process and now integrates 3 levels of tamper-evidence with an increased lifespan.
In a globalized world, the ever increasing flow of information, products and people creates a growing need for forgery-proof and easy-to-control authentication solutions.
Only chaosmetric security technologies, such as the Bubble Tag®, where the human hand is excluded from the generation process, can provide a sustainable response to the problems of counterfeiting and falsification.
