The quality dimension
The latest labelling solutions do not only add speed, they can also add quality control to the process. This is nothing new, of course – quality control has been part of the labelling processes for at least two decades. What’s different today though is that quality control is increasingly being digitalised – enabling organisations to achieve labelling efficiency and quality at the same time. That’s important. SAP customers typically come looking for a faster and easier way to make change requests. They don’t necessarily seek out digitalised quality control but achieving it is nonetheless a huge bonus and can bring them a range of benefits.
These include tighter management of headcount, and a significant reduction in paper-based quality control processes which in turn helps to reduce costs, errors and risk levels. Quality control can also help drive the speed of the labelling process, leading to faster shipping and fewer shipping delays.
Reaping the rewards
Thanks to the latest digital labelling solutions, organisations can use a fully-integrated document management system which gives them a centralised database of all label templates including complete print history, revision and approval workflows, and visibility regarding everyone who has accessed, changed and printed labels in their organisation. Businesses can digitise their entire quality assurance process and get all the documentation they need to perform quality control and audits. Going digital eliminates error-prone, paper-based quality control processes and reduces the costs and shipping delays associated with remediation. It is yet another example of how modernisation and digitalisation are enabling organisations that use labelling to build business advantage and drive competitive edge. At the end of the day, digitising the labelling quality control procedure helps further accelerate the speed of the overall process, ultimately providing yet another means by which SAP users can ship product faster.
