The benefits of labeling software
Meet ever-changing regulatory requirements
Changing regulations are a constant struggle for exporting and selling. If you have an MES software platform with a flexible label design module, you’ll be able to immediately access product information and text to determine whether it all still meets the necessary standards.
If you need to make any adjustments, labeling software enables you to quickly and easily update your existing label layouts. Design features also allow you to customize different label layouts based on individual customer preferences.
Create a fully traceable labeling process
After product has been packed and has exited the processing lines, you need to be able to track it. Labeling software not only provides a readable sticker to show what the product is, but also a scannable barcode with lot information, which can be used to scan product to inventory, scan it to a pallet, or scan it to an order. As long as the product is correctly labeled and scanned, it can be located in the system wherever it sits in the facility and give you an accurate record of its journey.
Unite your printers and labels in a centralized system
MES labeling software simplifies the management of all your labels by enabling you to manage all your printers and labels from one location. Any printer in the facility can print the same label design using the full range of available fonts and formatting features, with no need to download fonts or images to printers.
Once you’ve designed a label and assigned it to a product, customer, or order from your office, you can let the system do the rest. Time spent on creating multiple label layouts is also greatly reduced by having all of the necessary information available through the database.
Increase labeling efficiency and speed
Labeling is made drastically more efficient by an MES software system that supports its own printer drivers for speedy printing, can assign label designs to different printers based on the order and product, allows reprints quickly if a label is damaged, and tracks what label has been printed and where it has been applied. A system like this helps save time and effort, reduces human error, and allows for statistical analysis to make sure the label printing process is as efficient as possible.
Display product information clearly and attractively
One of the biggest advantages of labeling software is the accuracy of the information on each product or box--because it is being generated by a software system, there is little room for error. Intelligent labeling software also makes it easy to brand your products with attractive labeling and useful information that help you stand out from your competitors on the supermarket shelf.
