Based on countless discussions with senior management and innovation heads of enterprise clients, we identified an array of key focus areas from business owners when it came to their products. Responsible manufacturing, supply-chain oversight, real-time asset flows, sustainability and even the unique story of a product are attributes they sought to share, enabling enhanced brand engagement and novel ways to monetise data.
VeChain ToolChain™ facilitates this transparency, granting overarching insight of a product's legacy data, creating new ways to generate value for both consumers, brands and supply chain participants alike. With data securely and immutably stored on VeChain ToolChain™, trusted third-party service providers are able to further utilise these data, creating novel services and products in new, collaborative ways.
Valuable data in your business process:
Please check the following product framework of VeChain ToolChain™:
After user registration is completed, to start using the VeChain ToolChain™ the Enterprise Administrator needs to log into the VeChain ToolChain™ console to set up company profile, projects, data points, APIs as well as assign operational staff (such as manufacturing, warehouse, distribution and store) for data collection according to the defined process and data collection points. The built-in process builder allows Enterprise Administrator to use standard processes or create customized processes and data points that seamlessly integrate with your existing business process. The landing page builder can be used to upload customized landing page design to better demonstrate your business data on the blockchain to customers. The Enterprise Administrator can also order VIDs, IoT tags and TCCs (ToolChain Credits) in the console. Check the Web Portal User Manual to learn more.
Staff assigned by the Enterprise Administrator collect and upload business data based on the defined process and data points such as SKU, traceability, and promotion info. You can choose to upload plaintext, pictures, files or videos as needed in the data collection point. VeChain ToolChain™ provides three methods to collect and upload data to meet your needs:
- VeChain ToolChain™ Workspace web portal, check the Workspace User Manual to learn more
- VeChain Work mobile app, please check the VeChain Work User Manual to download and learn more

VeChain ID (“VID”) is a unique cryptographic ID that is stored on the VeChainThor blockchain. VID identifies physical products or data sets and links the digital identity on the blockchain with the physical world by binding with QR codes or IoT tags. All the process data uploaded to the VeChain ToolChain™ platform is linked with VIDs. Check the Workspace User Manual – Store to learn more.
The Blockchain-as-a-Service infrastructure layer encompasses everything that is needed for the platform to work seamlessly with the VeChainThor blockchain, taking all the blockchain complexities away from VeChain ToolChain™ users. The hardware-based key escrow and identity solution and fee delegation features brought by the VeChainThor blockchain allows secure usage of the blockchain application without deep knowledge of blockchain or cryptocurrency. VeChainThor blockchain is a Proof of Authority based public blockchain that keeps the immutability of the blockchainized data uploaded to the VeChain ToolChainTM platform while providing transparency.
To protect data privacy, we hash all data submitted via ToolChain regardless of the data upload methods. Only the hashes are submitted on chain.
