In today’s digital era manufacturers need to enable greater supply chain transparency to accelerate recalls, and tackle diversion and counterfeiting, all while improving profitability via better inventory management and waste minimisation.
They also need to deepen relationships with consumers through digital marketing. However, to reap maximum benefit from digitalisation, communication must be efficient and accurate at all levels.
To that end, and to save companies the time, cost and integration risks of digitalising in silos, Markem-Imaje has developed six scalable, end-to-end solutions to address these goals easily and economically. They run alone or together:
Line & Data Management
Improves accuracy and line efficiency by enabling seamless manual and automated data and information processing, marking and coding, including integration with third-party systems such as ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) and MES (Manufacturing Execution Systems).
Creates unique fingerprints and aggregates data so products are trackable at item, case and pallet-levels, delivering enhanced safety. Makes recalls more efficient, identifies product diversion and helps prove counterfeiting.
Makes it easier to use packaging to run ‘always on’ digital promotions. Removes need for costly real-time controllers and hardware which have historically limited campaigns to a few lines or required pre-printed materials. Unique codes printed on demand, even at high speeds.
Enhances pallet tracking via automatic application of compliant labels containing real-time data and no production rate impact. Improves traceability and minimises fines and/or rejections. Coding Integrity
Reduces rework and scrap through real-time identification of coding errors.
Avoids waste from pre-printed packaging mistakes by confirming codes are printed on the right material.
The solutions are based on the market’s leading information management system, CoLOS®, which has over 17,000 installations worldwide.
