How Can Configurable Business Logic Improve Labeling?
by Maureen Perroni, on April 26, 2016
Labeling today is complex; companies are faced with a wide range of evolving requirements. They include regional, language, customer and regulatory requirements, which all must be met in a quick and efficient manner to avoid disruption to business and to companies supply chains.
Companies that are not able to support these new requirements and streamline label changes to deal with this extensive variability can end up with fines, dissatisfied customers and loss of business. Enterprise Labeling allows businesses to deal with variability in labeling by enabling label formatting and content to change dynamically - and do so quickly - to support a myriad of different label combinations with a minimum number of label designs.
So, how can configurable business logic improve a company’s overall responsiveness in meeting changing labeling requirements? Having configurable business logic allows business users to address these changes or new requirements without having to go back and reprogram or change information in their corporate systems. They don’t have to do anything special because they already have all the information they need in their systems of record and they can just build or update rules in a rules engine. They can address any particular requirement in the labeling solution without having to impact other business systems and they can do it quickly to meet customer's needs.
Configurable business logic also is critical in reducing the number of labels a company has to manage since dynamic changes can be made to templates rather than making new templates for every variation of label.
