How We Can Help Your Business Grow


  • How can we capitalise on new technologies in digitisation, big data, track and trace?
  • We need to put sustainability at the heart of our operations and products – but where do we start?
  • We’ve developed a new solution – is there a market for it?
  • Where should we focus our investment?
  • How can we connect with potential partners?

If you need more expertise to address these questions, but don’t want to increase your overheads, Reconnaissance Consulting Group (RCG) can help you.
Because we know this industry as well as anybody, if not better.

We deliver global business intelligence and impartial advice on sectors with security and authentication at their core and which, by their very nature, are security conscious and closed about what they do.

These sectors include cash, secure documents, print and authentication technologies, track and trace, tax stamps, brand protection, personal ID – and the digital domains into which they’re moving.

Whether trying to value a business, compare product offerings, find a solution, offer a solution, enter the market or just be more competitive, we can help you.
