Cybernaptics, an innovative company in traceability in Mauritius and the African region, successfully hosted the Traceability Summit in Nairobi, Kenya, on August 16th and 17th. In collaboration with GS1 Kenya and Zebra Technologies, this event brought together key players in the industry. GS1 Kenya, a prominent non-profit organization within the global GS1 network, is dedicated to establishing and implementing standards and solutions that amplify supply chain efficiency and visibility across diverse sectors. Zebra Technologies, a distinguished manufacturer renowned for its mobile terminals, printers, barcode readers, and RFID chips, brought its hardware expertise to the collaboration.

The Traceability Summit marked a pivotal moment for Cybernaptics, affirming its standing as a significant player within the African traceability landscape. Throughout the two-day affair, the spotlight shone on an impending alliance that fuses Cybernaptics’ industry proficiency, GS1 Kenya’s standards governance, and Zebra Technologies’ cutting-edge traceability hardware.
