Extend labeling and packaging artwork to suppliers, co-packers and 3PLs to improve collaboration and eliminate relabeling. This access to labeling helps to save millions in inventory costs and reduces time to market.

Reduce Maintenance and Empower Users

Empower business users to easily make changes to labels and packaging artwork without IT and without affecting upstream systems - offering rapid, on-demand changes in color, branding, language/regional and more.
