Digitally Transforming Food and Beverage Labeling

May 8, 2019 |

Labeling has never played a more crucial role in your business. To compete in a rapidly changing marketplace, you need labeling processes that are fast and agile. You need to be able to respond rapidly to changes in labeling regulations, and provide the level of detail and transparency regarding food sourcing and ingredients that consumers demand. You need to digitize your labeling.

Digitally transform label design and reduce direct costs

The NiceLabel Label Management System (LMS) moves label design and maintenance out of the IT department and into the hands of the business users. It incorporates universal templates that enable you to significantly reduce the number of label variations. Using its easy-to-use label designer, you can save time, reduce the cost of label design and free up costly IT resources to perform more value-adding tasks.

Digitally transform quality assurance and reduce indirect costs

In the highly-regulated world of food and beverage manufacturing, quality assurance is paramount. The NiceLabel label management system streamlines quality assurance through digitization. You can quickly comply with changing regulatory requirements, resulting in lower risk and higher quality, at a lower cost.
