oneIDentity+ GmbH was founded in 2017 as a subsidiary company of TecAlliance GmbH. Based in Ismaning, oneIDentity+ pursues the goal of offering a neutral cross-sector service platform for the standardized identification and traceability of parts, components and products of any kind. It serves as the basis for efficiently harnessing the potential benefits, for example in the areas of protection against counterfeiting, mobile service support, marketing or spare parts management, in a platform-independent manner and across corporate boundaries. The technological basis of oneIDentity+ is Honeywell’s powerful Movilizer high-performance cloud.

Global Standards for better traceability
GS1 Germany supports companies of all sectors to apply modern communication and process standards in practice to improve the efficiency of business processes. The company GS1 is responsible for the worldwide, non-overlapping GS1 article number system in Germany – the basis of the barcode.
As a part of the international network “Global Standards One” (GS1), GS1 supports the development and implementation of open, cross-sector and globally valid standards. As the second largest of more than 110 country-based organizations, GS1 Germany also develops process and application recommendations and supports companies with implementation. Given specific requirements, Service providers of the GS1 Germany solution partner programme – which oneIDentity+ is also a part of – offer support.
Driving the Digital Automotive Aftermarket
TecAlliance has been one of the leading solution provider for the Independent Automotive Aftermarket for nearly 20 years. It operates one of Europe’s leading information and communication platforms in the automotive sector and delivers data and solutions to ease the daily work in the international automotive aftermarket. This includes article information of 6.6 million spare parts from over 700 brands and 3.9 million repair manuals.
The TecAlliance GmbH is combining the competencies of TecDoc, TecCom, TecRMI and Headline. TecAlliance is continuously developing and defining the industry standard and thus making collaboration within the industry more efficient, effective and transparent. The same applies to oneIDentity+, a wholly-owned subsidiary of TecAlliance.
The cloud solution in the background
In the background, the solution oneIDentity+ is using the basic features from Honeywells High Performance Cloud developed by the Track & Trace Division Movilizer. This High Performance Cloud Service distinguishes itself through high flexibility (interfaces to SAP etc., support of many mobile operating systems, quick creation of value-added services) and easy distribution and scalability. Many well-know companies like Coca Cola, Daimler and General Electric are using these services.
It drives enterprise profitability at large manufacturing and services companies, by empowering the companies to deploy nimble and dynamic strategies in the field. Unlike other competitors, who are providing silo solutions, the Movilizer Cloud connects and orchestrates field operations actors with each other even across company boundaries. Customers of oneIDentity+ also benefit from this, e.g. when tracing spare parts and tools.
The Verband Deutscher Maschinen- und Anlagenbau e.V. (VDMA) is Europe’s largest industrial association with around 3,200 members, and represents the interests of the capital goods industry, predominantly comprised of medium-sized companies. In Germany, the machine and plant construction sector employs over one million people – making it the largest industrial employer with a turnover of around 218 billion euros. Every two years, the VDMA runs a study on the subject of product and brand piracy among its member companies.
The total damage estimated by the companies in the German machine and plant construction sector alone is in the billions each year. oneIDentity+ is a member of the professional software association of the VDMA and works on solutions to improve traceability and reduce product piracy. Furthermore, oneIDentity+ is an active member of the work groups maritime systems and equipment, wind energy and medical technologies.
More counterfeit protection with CLEPA
CLEPA (European Association of Automotive Suppliers) represents more than 3,000 companies of the European automotive suppliers, employing more than five million people. These companies invest more than twenty billion Euros in research and development every year, to offer their customers solutions for a secure, intelligent and sustainable mobility.
Analogous to the VDMA, topics like traceability and protection product and brand piracy are very important to CLEPA, for which a range of events and campaigns are conducted. This way, CLEPA – one of the co-initiators of the MAPP initiative – has been supporting oneIDentity+ in the fight against product piracy for many years.
Events like the CLEPA Anti Counterfeit Day help to send a clear signal against product piracy and for sector-wide strategies to combat it.
Together against product piracy
The sector initiative „Manufacturers against Product Piracy“ (MAPP) was founded by CLEPA members to combat product piracy and to exchange knowledge of product and brand protection. To distinguish faster between genuine and fake products, members of the initiative label their original products with a serialized DataMatrix or QR-Code. This unique MAPP code can be checked with oneIDentity+, the first IT standard solution for the automotive aftermarket, any time. Within seconds, the user can verify the genuineness of a spare part.
Bosch, Continental, Federal-Mogul Motorparts, GATES, GKN, GS1, Mahle, MANN-FILTER, MS Motorservice, Schaeffler, WABCO, ZF and TecAlliance support the MAPP initiative. By only using original parts, road safety is to be improved.
