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.

CSI’s Talkin’ Caps allow for real-time consumer interconnectivity at the point of consumption, giving brand owners the unique ability to have dynamic interaction and gather actionable insights based on consumer location and usage history.

With 90% of consumers using their smartphone to help make purchase decisions in a brick and mortar setting 1, 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 this year’s Pack Expo, taking place October 14th– 17th, 2018 at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. CSI in conjunction with Talkin’ Things® invites you to visit CSI’s booth S-2930 for interactive demonstrations taking place on Monday, October 15th(1pm/3pm-CT) or Tuesday, October 16th(9am/11am-CT).
