What changes when I start using Custom?


What changes when I start using Custom?

Establish a process-dependent packaging artwork process from womb to tomb

Here are the 3 As/is scenarios that will
change once you adopt MA

YOUR AS IS FOR INTEGRATIONS

·        So currently your SAP or other ERP systems are in place

·        A central repository and artwork process is also in place

·        At different stages in the workflow where SAP codes need to be created or accessed manually, the tasks are done separately in SAP and re-typed into the artwork system

·        Item codes related to BOM are manually entered into the artwork system

HOW DOES OUR PLATFORM CHANGE THIS?

FIRST GET INTEGRATED

Product specs like SKU, item codes etc. are synced automatically

 

Integrating with SAP allows expanding your business processes from a simple standalone Artwork System to encompass Packaging BOM process, New Product Development process and New Packaging Development processes.

 

 

Data is exchanged at the appropriate step of the artwork process

 

Integrate with QMS systems for initiating artwork change requests processes

BOM collation in the MA platform can be pushed into SAP automatically after approval  

Integrate with Document Management System (DMS) and Digital Asset Management Systems (DAM) to push the final approved artwork for broader access

 

 

When initiating a change request, printed material inventory can be checked directly in SAP, to decide if the change in artwork should be effective now or after the existing inventory is exhausted

 

 

Save money by significantly reducing the number of packaging material write-offs due to wrongly printed artworks or old stock lying around.

 

YOUR AS IS FOR COLLABORATION WITH EXTERNAL AGENCIES

So currently you have a process, repository and SAP integration in place and all internal stakeholders are able to approve and release artworks

·        There is a coordinator in the marketing department who interacts outside the system with design agencies,

·        a coordinator in the supply chain or procurement team who works with print vendors,

·        a person who coordinates all interactions and obtains artwork approvals from the customer and

·        a coordinator who works with contract manufacturers and OEMs

Different markets work with different external entities in their own way

HOW DOES OUR PLATFORM CHANGE THIS?
COLLABORATE WITH EXTERNAL AGENCIES ON A SINGLE PLATFORM

 

 

Interal and external stakeholders are always on the same page

 

As your business grows to other markets and more partners come on board, the same system can expand to accommodate them

 

Safe, speedier and secure interaction  

With so much data being collected in the system, comparison of quality, cost and time can be made across vendors

 

 

No messy user management overhead of creating logins for each and every print vendor or customer. All you need is their email

 

 

Adapting to newer business models becomes easy and impact of mergers and acquisitions on the artwork process becomes manageable.

 

 

Customers simply receive an email with a link to view the artwork and approve

 

 

Customers can now inspect printed material against the artworks released to printers using print inspection tools

 

 

Approvals are made easy with the help of automatic, rule-based and dynamic checklist

 

 

Print vendors get a link to download the files required for print

 

 

YOUR AS IS FOR CREATING ARTWORK AND PUBLISHING DIGITAL ASSETS

·        So currently your internal and external stakeholders are collaborating on the same system, interactions are smoother, quicker and efficient

·        Products are sold online across various eCommerce portals and you manually have to enter product specs or pack shots to each portal manually. This task is low-value and highly error-prone

·        Packaging specifications including size, dimensions, weight, materials, tolerances and load related information isn’t managed centrally

·        With proliferation of SKUs, design agencies are forced to create new labels with shorter turn around times and these lead to consistency errors

·        You currently have discrete systems in place to manage packaging specifications, artworks, BOMs and artwork data stored in multiple environments

HOW DOES OUR PLATFORM CHANGE THIS?

 

 

The Copy Manager module can export formats shared with data pools in the GDSN framework

 

ManageArtworks becomes your end-to-end packaging and artwork management platform helping you with software tools that support the business processes by enabling artwork design, proofing, verification and distribution

 

 

For eCommerce portals that require data in any other format, the ManageArtworks system can be configured to generate any type of output format

 

 

Processes across the product labeling lifecycle, from regulatory submission to product obsoleting are covered in one system

 

 

With the Specification Manager, all your stakeholders will be on the same page enabling quicker approval times and enhanced visibility

 

You will have the ability to regulate data with mandatory and optional fields

 

 

Text & Graphics, data from ERP, PLM, PIM and any other system that are required to create and manage packaging and labeling assets are in one centralized location

 

Effective data management from one central source helps you eliminate errors.

 

 

You can manage multilingual artwork copy text across SKU’s with our Ai plugin driving inputs from our copy manager.

 

 

With our Data Migration Services, you can view all your existing packaging assets, specifications and copy text migrated from your legacy systems into ManageArtworks and  can pick up where you left off
