Use the cloud to improve supplier compliance

For decades, organizations have struggled to find the perfect labeling solution for business partners including suppliers, contract manufacturers and third-party logistics providers. While some larger corporations have succeeded using a model of forced compliance, this approach doesn’t work for everyone. So what is the most cost-effective, efficient way of ensuring compliant supplier labeling?

The cost of inconsistent supplier labeling

If your suppliers aren’t complying with your labeling standards, you can face one or more of the following issues:

  • Your warehouse staff need to identify inbound products themselves, which is an expensive, risky way of processing goods
  • If your warehouse staff doesn’t identify a product correctly, you have inaccurate inventory data which could mean missed production deadlines
  • You need to spend time relabeling inbound goods
  • This extra processing time means your inventory turnaround times are longer
  • You need more staff to process goods-in and more warehouse space to house the goods
