On September 21, 2021, Ontology, in collaboration with AP. LLC, a Japanese consulting firm with strong ties to domestic research institutes and researchers, announced that their jointly developed blockchain-based anti-falsification program has been linked to the inventory management system of ZAICO, a cloud inventory management software company.
Founded in 2017, Ontology is a high performance public blockchain specializing in decentralized identity and data. With a suite of business-ready applications, Ontology is attracting worldwide attention as a platform that promotes blockchain-based solutions for enterprises. In 2021, Ontology’s presence in Japan has grown substantially, with its native token “ONT” having been listed on local crypto exchanges Decurret and Huobi Japan.
Ontology and AP.LLC have been exploring ways to implement Ontology’s blockchain-based program into the inventory management solution provided by ZAICO to improve traceability, transparency, and reliability.
Now that the development of the program is complete, clients will be able to use blockchain-based, tamper-evident, accurate and traceable inventory management with unprocessed inventory data output from the ZAICO system at a significantly lower cost.
The program utilizes ZAICO’s CSV output function and inventory data registration/retrieval APIs, and is very user friendly, requiring only a few steps to complete. The inventory data is encrypted and recorded on the Ontology blockchain, ensuring that it remains secure.
Here is a sample page showing how data registration to blockchain works.
The data registered on Ontology blockchain can be verified later to attest its authenticity. Here are samples of successful verification screens.
This web-based program is designed to be widely used not only in inventory management systems but also in other types of systems that handle ledgers. By holding the utility token ZAPC when implementing the program, the data registration screen and verification screen can be customized according to the service, which makes it possible to develop it as the user’s own service. Please contact AP.LLC Development Department if you would like to adopt this service for your own business or application.
The Ontology blockchain is a high speed, low cost public blockchain bringing decentralized identity and data solutions to Web3. Increasing privacy, transparency, and trust, the high speed, low cost, layer 2 blockchain is designed to give users and enterprises the flexibility to build blockchain-based solutions that suit their needs, while also ensuring regulatory compliance. Through Ontology’s Ethereum Virtual Machine (EVM), Ontology ensures frictionless compatibility with Ethereum, the first step in the creation of the Ontology Multi-Virtual Machine and further interoperability for the chain.
As an independent consulting firm in Japan, AP. LLC helps clients maximize the value of their portfolios, maintain the integrity of their business strategies, and increase their competitiveness. They also develop systems to solve clients’ problems, and the security system they developed was selected by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST) for its Network Program for Realizing Regenerative Medicine.
