Manufacturers today are part of a global supply chain, sometimes specializing in one product or process. In a vast supply chain made up of contract manufacturers, suppliers, warehousing providers, and distribution specialists, labeling is the common language that allows every link in the supply chain to work together.
Manufacturers who have multiple upstream suppliers understand that labels on incoming goods must be accurate. Supplier labeling is a critical component of an efficient supply chain, and a unified supplier labeling system can have a big impact on overall efficiency and the bottom line. Read this blog to learn how centralizing your labeling can create easier labeling within your supplier network, reduce costly labeling errors, and make your company more lean.
Companies without a unified supplier labeling system are likely managing a hodgepodge of label files, data, and software.
All the above supplier labeling scenarios can lead to inaccurately labeled products, resulting in expensive and unnecessary supply chain bottlenecks.
Inaccurate supplier labeling causes significant inefficiencies in the inventory receiving process. An inefficient process means more time, space, and labor are required to manage incoming inventory.
With a unified supplier labeling system, companies experience much lower risk for labeling errors from their suppliers. The best part? No local software installations!
The supplier labeling system is centrally managed by your company. It can be enabled on-premise or in the cloud. Web-based label printing portals are published and can be branded with your company’s logo. Each supplier has secure access to approved label templates that automatically pull in real-time data from your business system!
