How tech helped Brit startup Tangle Teezer grow into an iconic hairbrush brand
Tangle Teezer discusses its paperless mission, smart tracking QR codes and the technology that helped build it into an iconic British brand.By Margi Murphy
QR codes are now being used to create unique "serial numbers" to allow individual products to carry an "identity". Tangle Teezer has adopted this technology and working with a specialist Security company CODIKETT® Tangle Teezer have been able to mark every single hair brush that not only identifies the brush, but is registered with Codikett so that customers can check that their brush is genuine and Tangle Teezer can control products by geographical area.

The challenge was that in the warehouse the normal barcodes on the racking and the pallets, are stacked in racking 5 meters high and need a special long range barcode reader to read barcodes at that distance. However Tangle Teezer did not want two devices and so Barcode-IT were able to supply the Falcon x3+ with 2D long range reader and special software to allow an operator to use a single terminal for normal warehouse tasks and scan the QR codes for upload to the Codikett servers in Germany.
