If you have a labelling solution that works you may be wondering why you should invest in a new system. Are you actually sure that your system works? How often are mistakes being made? How many man-hours are being wasted checking labels?
- Automatic Labelling Software Integrates With Labelling Machines
Whether you have a simple label printer or a fully fledged labelling machine on your production line, Automatic Labelling Software can interface with the hardware and adapt labels to the method that you are going to use to apply them. No more checking to see if margins and print areas match up. Simply tell the software where the label will be stuck and it will do all the hard work for you.
- Obtain Product Information From Product Database
If you have lots of different products wouldn’t it be amazing if you could design just one label and have it automatically adjusted to suit the product it’s being printed for? Automatic Labelling Software can extract product information from your product database. All you do is decide where types of information go – such as the product name, EAN barcode, nutrition information etc – and the software will create labels for as many products as you like.
- Automatically Increment Use-By Dates Based On Spoilage Times
Every single day be sure that perishable items are correctly labelled with manufactured, expiry, use-by and best-before dates. By querying the database the software can calculate the correct date from spoilage times. It can also add batch numbers to the label if required.
- Machine Created, Machine Readable Labels Need Minimal Checking
Once you’ve set up the label the Automatic Labelling Software does all the hard work. Once the label is printed onto the product it can automatically read it to ensure that no hardware fault has caused a faulty label. Accuracy is improved many times over as once it’s set up no more human input is needed. This improves the efficiency of your business as less packaging – and potentially less product – is wasted through incorrect labelling. And it means less returns when your clients can’t read the labels.
- Conform To All Labelling Regulations Automatically
Some regulations can be very intricate and it can be tricky to be sure if you’ve complied or not. Automatic Labelling Software creates labels that conform to regulatory guidelines such as Title 21 CFR Part 11. This includes the necessary security controls and audit trails required to conform.
Look Who Else Is Using It
Banta Global Turnkey provides kit assembly and preparation for Dell Ireland. They’ve been using AIS Automated Print and Apply services since 2001. Dell are not a customer to put up with shoddy service so it is important to Banta Global Turnkey that their products are labelled accurately ready for shipment.
Diageo Baileys Global Supply wanted to have a system that needed minimal input and would adhere to the traceability requirements of EU Food Safety Regulation 178/2002. Automatic Labelling Software allow them to combine data from several sources, in real time where possible but at other times from saved backups, to create a per-pallet barcode for their product. Operators can input work orders on production line terminals. The system extracts the relevant information, asks for operator confirmation then automatically labels the pallet with a barcode that will allow the contents to be traced right back to the batch they were created from, and encodes destination information ensuring the correct orders are dispatched. Before leaving the warehouse pallets are automatically scanned, alerting drivers if the wrong pallets have been selected.
With all these benefits, there’s certainly a case for considering Automatic labelling software for your business.
