Alpvision – more than anti-counterfeit solutions

AlpVision is the world’s leader in anti-counterfeiting digital technologies for product authentication and counterfeit protection. In 2001, the company invented a breakthrough authentication technology, widely used today by Forbes 2000 companies. AlpVision reached profitability in 2003 and has grown steadily ever since. AlpVision’s digital anti-counterfeiting solutions for product authentication are applicable to a wide variety of items, including packaging and labelling, plastic and metal products, and high-value documents. Our anti-counterfeiting solutions are commercialized worldwide under license agreements as entirely customizable turnkey computerized systems.

Starting in 2015, AlpVision extended its business activities by providing Artificial Intelligence based products to various fields. AlpVision has been using AI since early on and we felt that our expertise in this field is of great use for application outside the anti-counterfeiting activity. Today AlpVision provides AI based anti-counterfeit solutions in fields such as chemistry, pharmaceutical drug development, quality control, image analysis and understanding, etc.
