infrastructure of tracking and tracing solution
For a project of European importance, always considering the availability, integrity and security of data, we have developed a state of the art system which provides all of the functionalities required by the legislation free of any interruptions and possible issues.
Core element that secures availability is a first class design of the cluster of servers which is based on the nodes only in high availability regime.
Integrity is based on the very functional combination of technologies, infrastructure and software design. As a matter of confidentiality we have developed a unique workflow with the footprint of our philosophy and DNA.
AUREUS+ is the provider of a comprehensive modular solution for generation of unique identifiers, including registration, analytical and invoicing tools.
The fundamental advantage of the +AUREUS.digital solution is its full and complete consistency with the parameters and requirements set out in the TPD and the delegated legal acts as well as the verified compatibility with the market environment. The solution is unique to the European Union market by its nature and technical specifications.
The comprehensive +AUREUS.digital solution, in the form of a ready to use toolkit, is technologically built on an individually configured infrastructure using the high end modern technologies that provide the highest level of data security and integrity, high availability, continuous operation and control.
AUREUS.digital UID generator
The +AUREUS.digital modular platform, is based on a unique identifier generator that meets all the legal requirements set out in the TPD and delegated legal acts. It suits the large-scale production environment and enables the generation of UI in real time demand.
Thus, the modular platform +AUREUS.digital is able to deliver not only the unique identifier required for the tobacco product's consumer packaging, but also the unique identifiers for aggregated level of packages and all economic subjects including retailers.
The unique identifier itself consists of several parts to suit the market and manufacturing environment, which has been verified in several Member States by pilot projects in cooperation between manufacturers and public or state authorities.
Article 15 para. (1) of the TPD requires that all unit packets of tobacco products be identified by a unique identifier. Subsequently, Article 15 para. (2) and (3) sets out the basic parameters of the unique identifier.
composition of the unique identifier
+AUREUS.digital platform is capable of issuing variable length of unique identifiers starting with 24 characters, which guarantees compatibility with valid legislation and the market environment. The length of the UID can vary upon the customer requirements up to 50 characters as stipulated in the delegated acts and TPD.
additional modules of AUREUS.digtal
In addition to the Module of the Unique Identifier Generator, Module Management, Registration Module, and Security Module, the +AUREUS.digital provides additional functional modules upon request, such as:
Export and data correlation in the issuance of unique identifiers, providing a comprehensive overview of the production and import information of tobacco products sorted by individual parameters (manufacturer, importer, product, target market, shipping route, etc.). Data and extracted information are clearly displayed in an editable spreadsheets and active charts and diagrams.
The module, which uses the data of the UI issuer and mathematical operations, generates forecasts of revenue developments into the state budget taking into account value added tax and excise duty on tobacco products. Part of this is data export and crisp filterable display in active charts and diagrams.
localized application interface

Critical systems naturally require continuous monitoring by a surveillance system that evaluates and records the history of the use of system resources of the infrastructure. At the same time, it analyses the availability of system resources and allows, under the specified rules, to notify the operator of a new situation that could lead to a failure.
Support provides 24x7x365 standby L3 Windows System Administrator in N+1 mode, which is always available within your service window. When a new problem is encountered in the infrastructure recorded by the surveillance system, or when a malfunction is reported by some of the L1 or L2 administrators, the service platform specialists are immediately available and ready to analyze, resolve and remove the malfunction.
Long-term tracking of these data centre and server parameters provides timely information on the need to increase system resources in case of future need and forecast of outages.
