NLMK Introduces QR Codes for Finished Products & Quality Certificates
The digital solution will enable the company to process documents and ship products faster, and customers to move away from paperwork. When scanned, the QR code placed on each NLMK product unit, takes the customer to a web page that contains information on the steel grade, the weight, size, batch number and other features of the product unit in question. The customer can open and save an electronic version of the quality certificate with GOST (state standard) information, specification number, and other product data. In September 2020, the company plans to introduce digital signatures for quality certificates, which will save customers the trouble of having to request the original hard copy. The certificate will be available from the customer’s profile.
The QR code and electronic certificate enable automatic transmission of data to the buyer's information systems, such as warehouse management system. This helps customers reduce transaction costs.
