Talkin’ Caps ensure product safety and reduce brand owners’ liability by protecting against counterfeiting and “gray market” activities.

Closure Systems International (CSI) and Talkin’ Things®, aninnovator in product communication platforms, have collaborated to integrate smart packaging technology into CSI’s global platform of closures. The two comnpanies have developed a new packaging solution named Talkin’ Cap, which uses embedded Near Field Communication (NFC) tags, for application on the inside of closures. This technology introduces a powerful platform to support a brand owner’s mobile marketing activities right from the package itself…with just a simple tap.

Brand trustworthiness and product reliability are paramount for consumer loyalty. Talkin’ Caps ensure product safety and reduce brand owners’ liability by protecting against counterfeiting and “gray market” activities throughout the distribution stream.

With 90% of consumers using their smartphone to help make purchase decisions in a brick and mortar setting1, Talkin’ Caps are an app-less way to drive marketing content, brand and product information, gamification, loyalty programs, awards, and coupons to connected consumers.

The Talkin’ Cap technology will be unveiled at PACK EXPO. CSI in conjunction with Talkin’ Things® invites you to visit CSI’s booth S-2930 for interactive demonstrations taking place on Monday, Oct. 15th (1 p.m./3 p.m.-CT) or Tuesday, Oct. 16th (9 a.m./11a.m.-CT).
