Six Reasons to Prioritize Labeling in Response to Covid-19 Disruption
by Sam Ireland, on March 24, 2020
In these uncertain times, businesses are looking at their strategic plan for 2020 and considering what elements of it remain a priority given the current global context. They are focusing on the projects they can re-prioritize in order to make strategic progress, whilst still protecting their employees and complying with government restrictions and guidance.
Why are organizations prioritizing labeling projects?
Labeling is mission-critical, the return on investment is measurable and the benefits can be realized without a single site visit or face-to-face meeting with your team. What’s more, with Loftware, the projects can be up and running quickly to make an impact on your business this year.
Here are the top six ways Loftware can help you to press-on and deliver performance improving labeling projects while there are such tight restrictions in place regarding the movement of people:
- Simple Implementation, maximum impact:
While labeling projects can span multiple stakeholders, there’s no need for on-site meetings given the simple nature of implementation. Conference calls and online meetings provide enough opportunity to manage the implementation of projects – all of which can be done while your workforce may be in isolation and working from home. Simple projects mean fewer surprises. Fewer surprises delivers predictable results and greater rigor around project dates and implementation timeframes.
- Fixed project price limits risk:
Organizations are now facing a race against time to deliver identified savings outlined in accordance with their strategic objectives. With Loftware, project fees can be fixed in advance to help ensure that labeling projects can continue despite unpredictable external factors that may cause supply chain disruption. So, while there’s so much uncertainty with other initiatives underway across your business, you can take comfort in knowing that you have cost certainty with your labeling project.
- Agility to respond to changing circumstances:
Pace is quickly becoming an important decision-making factor relating to which strategic initiatives to support this year. You need to be sure that you are working with an organization that’s used to helping customers manage projects effectively, and with a team that can expertly identify potential obstacles and fix them before they slow your project down. Our Project Management team is used to working with customers who are responding to supply chain uncertainty and will help navigate you through the implementation process.
- Mobilize remotely:
With Loftware solutions, everything relating to the mobilization can be carried out remotely. From connecting with your sources of truth, through to transferring your existing solution, there is no need for any of the mobilization activity to happen on site. Once everything is ready, going live with your new labeling processes can be done with the click of a button and with no interruption on production.
- Deploy in the cloud:
Loftware’s solutions do not require any hardware to be deployed on-site. Leveraging the power of Amazon Web Services (AWS), Loftware’s worldwide cloud operations, services and support teams provide expert server and application management for customers deploying Spectrum in the cloud. Spectrum Cloud removes the need to purchase, deploy and maintain hardware and software environments required for traditional on-premise deployments, reducing costs and IT demands. Designed to scale to hundreds of locations, thousands of printers and unlimited users, Loftware Spectrum Cloud supports rapid implementation throughout your organization.
- Ensure continuous operations:
During times of uncertainty you need assurance that if connectivity to headquarters is disrupted, remote facilities failover to a local instance, synchronizing transactional data later when the connection is restored. Multi-Site empowers remote facilities to run without depending on a full-time connection to headquarters while ensuring that they comply and stay current with corporate labeling standards. What’s more, should you encounter any issues you can be safe in the knowledge that our expert Support team are on-hand to help you 24/7/365.
If you have an objective to save millions in operating costs, labeling should be at the top of the list. Entire projects can be delivered while your employees are working remotely, and you can ensure your teams are optimized and able to deliver results that make a meaningful difference to the bottom-line of your business.
