Can You Easily Meet Customer and Regulatory Labeling Requirements?
by Dalton Litzelman, on August 6, 2019
In today’s business environment, meeting the needs of your customers is crucial to success. Many companies have a vast customer base that require unique information on their labels. Whether you're delivering products to new markets and requiring labels in multiple languages, or your customers want labels to be a certain size or shape, it is important to satisfy their needs. On top of that, your labels must adhere to a wide range of standards and regulations. The problem is, different countries have different requirements and each industry has varying sets of rules to follow. What makes this even more complicated is that these rules and regulations are subject to change at any point in time, and you need to make sure your customers can keep up with the changes.
Clearly, meeting the needs of your customers and enabling regulatory compliance is no easy task. Think about the volumes of labels needed to keep products moving smoothly throughout the supply chain. And for each shipment you need to produce labels for each box, for the bin or pallet, and one for the shipping container. The scariest part of the whole process is after your product is shipped, everything that follows is out of your hand. For that reason, each label must be well organized and contain all the necessary information to deliver your product safely and on time. One small mistake could cost your company valuable time and money.
This is why it's important to have a labeling solution that allows you to:
- Automate your labeling process to ensure accuracy and consistency
- Comply with ever-changing labeling regulations
- Adapt to the needs of your customers
- Keep pace with your growing business
If you have trouble with regulations, wouldn’t it be nice to have an automated label process that changes formats, barcodes, logos, languages, and content dynamically? Well, when you automate and apply advanced business logic to your labeling, you can maximize your support for countless label combinations with minimal effort. Instead of manually researching each aspect needed on a label, you could simply select a country from a drop-down menu, specify the product and quantity being shipped, and receive the correct label immediately. As a result, you would see improved customer satisfaction, elimination of costly mistakes and fines, and much more.
