Trust, whether it be in a physical or digital format is a must for business interactions. It allows users to conduct business transactions safely without the fear of any nefarious actions occurring.
As technologies continue to move towards the digital realm, there is a greater need for that establishment of digital trust.
Vistory is a leader in building digital trust along the supply chain with the overall monitoring of data with their solution MainChain. And now, having joined the GrabCAD Software Partner Program, companies can create that safe digital environment where their IPs and other information is protected. Users can move into 3D printing and reach greater levels of connectivity without fear of losing IP security.
“MainChain brings together all stakeholders in the supply chain - OEM, design offices, marketplace, printer manufacturers, office services and end customers - through a trusted third party platform for distributed additive manufacturing.” explains Alexandre Pedemonte, Vistory's CEO.
A Solution You Can Trust
Since integrating traditional manufacturing methods with 3D printing is so new, the gaps in security (and by extension the risk of data leaks) are very high. Making sure such processes are also in compliance with various industries is a monumental challenge.
“To scale manufacturing, supply chain stakeholders need trust. It has always been trust. And it will always be trust,” explains Alexandre “With MainChain, we generate value for everyone everywhere. It’s all about API that makes this possible.”
Vistory’s greatest strengths are in private blockchain technology which provides industrial customers risk control and trust across the digital supply chain by certifying industrial property integrity and establishing enhanced connectivity and traceability of all operations. For distributed production, a decentralized control is needed. Compliance of a manufacturing process throughout the digital production process (from design to production) is another of their specialties.
MainChain also introduces new business models like IP monetization, exploitation license purchase, on-site and on-demand production. Having this all within the cloud opens the doors for more effective manufacturing workflows that can be resilient and sustainable even in the face of current world events.
As Vistory continues to strengthen MainChain, the list of compatible printers will only grow as a start. Later down the line we may see an increase of process automation within the tools and manufacturing process and an even safer network as blockchain technology becomes more mainstream.
