All I need is a label designer – and other common labeling misconceptions
When we talk to companies about label management, one of the most common objections we hear is, “All I need is a label designer.” We get it. Our label designer is still one of our most popular products. However, we often find that what starts out with a need to design labels more quickly and efficiently, ends up being a need to rethink the entire label management process. Here’s why.
The changing face of manufacturing
For decades, manufacturers were able to make do with traditional desktop label designers. Operations were local, applications home grown and business moved at a predictable pace. Fast-forward to the 21st century, and the manufacturing landscape looks quite different. Production is often spread out over multiple locations, time zones and even continents, and often includes contract manufacturers and other third-party suppliers. Speed and agility are now necessities to compete in an increasingly global marketplace. Operations need to be scalable, and adaptable to allow for shutdowns, quarantines and remote working.
No label is an island
Added to these changes is the very nature of labeling. Labeling is not an isolated process. It touches product lifecycle management, warehouse inventory, enterprise resource planning and much more. Designing labels more quickly is really just the tip of the iceberg. True process improvement comes from examining the entire label lifecycle, from label creation to printing and maintenance.
