Brand Protection with Package Inspection
Compliance and traceability improve patient safety and reduce liability exposure
Regardless of the products being made, packaging affects consumer perception of quality and value. If the wrong item is in a package, or a defective product ships, customer satisfaction and brand image are impacted. Manufacturers that make package compliance and traceability a priority achieve a significant competitive advantage.
Compliance, traceability and authentication
Uniquely coding each lot, batch, or individual item to identify time and location of production can help you achieve more efficient and less costly recalls.
- Improve customer safety
- Prevent counterfeiting
- Stop parallel trade and sale through unauthorized channels
- Minimize losses
- Provide recall efficiency
- Protect the brand
Process Control and Supply Chain Management
The better and more precise the track and trace system, the faster you can identify and resolve problems. If profit margins are narrow, reduced manufacturing and supply chain costs can often be the difference between profit and loss.
- Improve management of work in process
- Reduce inventory
- Optimize availability and use of production tools
- Minimize distribution of non-conforming products
