The Problem: Everything is Ready to Go, But You Don’t Have the Labels
Production schedules are the lifeblood of a successful manufacturing plant and success is measured by hitting acknowledged ship dates in an efficient manner. That all breaks down if the component parts are not available and ready when it’s time for production. Having the incorrect label or finding out that you’re out of labels can cause complete disruption and shut down production.
The Horror: You Can’t Ship Products
Everything is ready to go and our Production Team is stoked! Chemicals are in the reactor, drums and pails are staged, the production fill line is scheduled and the large customer order has been acknowledged to be shipping out later that afternoon.
All is good until it’s discovered that the wrong labels had been in the storage bin – and we’re now in a stock-out position on the product labels. An emergency call to the outside print vendor gets the standard 10-day lead-time moved up to 4 days, but product can’t be drummed out or shipped and now the Plant Manager wants a word.
The Solution: Having A Blank Label that Can be Printed On-demand
To avoid having to experience this headache, it’s in your best interest to have a blank label that can be printed on-demand. On-demand printing will allow you to label the containers and keep the production line running smoothly. You’ll be able to ship the product to the customer in a timely manner and keep them satisfied with your service.
