Accelerate Supply Chain Labeling—and Packaging Artwork
by Craig Hodgson, on May 31, 2018
Heading to GS1 Connect next week in Phoenix? This annual event brings together key influencers and decision makers from Foodservice, Healthcare, Retail Grocery and Apparel to network and participate in lively sessions relating to GS1 standards and optimizing supply chain efficiency. With the theme Accelerate, this year’s conference will provide an engaging blend of live educational programs, industry-specific and cross-sector conference sessions—along with GS1 US’s popular Standardsville Exhibit Area.
Once again, Loftware will be there as an exhibitor and a presenter showcasing our industry-leading Enterprise Labeling solutions including Loftware SpectrumTM—a powerful, scalable 100% browser-based solution that supports high-speed, high-volume labeling across the global supply chain. A proud GS1 Solution Partner, Loftware backs its highly configurable software with unique domain expertise to help companies across all industries solve their specific customer and regulatory challenges. The result is assured accuracy, better visibility and control, streamlined processes and reduced costs.
A new, significant change to Loftware’s offerings this year is the addition of Artwork Management. For a while now, we have noticed how labeling and packaging artwork share more and more commonalities—from regulatory information and master data to branding and imagery. And yet these functions are typically managed in different systems by different users, where content is replicated and stored—and rarely the “source of truth”. It only made sense, after speaking with customers and analysts, to drive the convergence of labeling and artwork management with one unified, integrated platform.
With the recent acquisition of Gap Systems and its cloud-based solution Smartflow to manage the packaging artwork process, Loftware has created a single, digital platform for Enterprise Labeling and Artwork Management. Now companies, especially those in the GS1-influenced industries of Food & Beverage, Life Sciences and Apparel & General Merchandise, have one breakthrough solution to create, manage and print complex labeling and packaging artwork across their entire operations. Not only does this platform simplify processes and improve time to market, but it greatly enhances traceability—which is so important to GS1 and its members.
Stop by Loftware booth #39 to learn more about our solutions for Enterprise Labeling and Artwork Management. Also, we’ll be presenting a Tech Track session on “Extend Labeling and GS1 Standards to Trade Partners, Reduce Costs by Millions”, Wed., June 6 @ 1:30 PM in the Grand Canyon Ballroom 9 – 11. We look forward to seeing you there!
