Real customer examples of Smart Workflow Automation in Action
Brand owners are increasingly focused on the role of product packaging in ensuring an engaging customer experience. At the same time, consumers expect responsiveness from their favorite brands, and when brands are not responsive to trends and concerns – often reflected in packaging – they will even abandon those brands.
For label and packaging converters, who have already been facing demand for faster turn times, cost-effective production of shorter runs, a growing number of SKUs and a requirement for strict regulatory compliance, these dynamics add even more complexity to an already complex and demanding production process. Label and packaging converters can expect to see even more pressure on cycle times from their brand owner customers. That being said, they play a critical role in enabling brands to achieve the level of responsiveness their end customers expect. To effectively serve in that role, an increased focus must be placed on operational efficiency and smart workflow automation.
In this brand-new white paper, sponsored by Esko, readers will find tips, hints and real customer stories that will encourage and inspire them, whether their company is large or small, as they work to streamline their labels and packaging workflow even more to address the growing demand for speed to market sought by most, if not all, brand owners. Labels and packaging converters have an opportunity to play a critical role in enabling brands to achieve the level of responsiveness their end customers expect. To effectively serve in that role, an increased focus must be placed on operational efficiency and smart workflow automation. This white paper offers insight into how to reach that goal.
