You’ve been relying on your existing labeling solution for a long time, and it has served you well. But in the face of increasing digitalization, security breaches, global competition and the ever-present need to reduce costs and improve efficiency, maybe it’s time to consider an upgrade.

Businesses of all sizes, industries, and geographies have leveraged the cloud as part of their overall infrastructures.

Loftware now offers Spectrum with a managed service option to improve your productivity, increase the focus on your business, while eliminating unexpected infrastructure costs.
When you implement Spectrum as a managed service along with other integrated applications, you simplify maintenance and support, reduce IT involvement, and easily scale your global labeling footprint. This also eliminates the need for extensive disaster recovery plans while managing automatic software upgrades.
