Become the master of your Packaging Supply Chain

The packaging supply chain presents many challenges. Functions are often performed in “silos” inside a company or between different companies. The players can be located around the world: in different time zones, using different tools and speaking different languages. All these participants must perform flawlessly under extreme time pressure. Managing expectations and handoffs between these different players is not only challenging; it’s also a major source of errors and delays.

By leveraging new technologies for packaging management, this webinar will show how you can take ownership of your packaging assets so that you always find the right version of your files exactly when you need them. You’ll also learn how to implement optimized processes to keep everyone on track and informed with better communication and collaboration.

Using success stories, we’ll examine three examples that show how you can take back control of your packaging supply chain. First, we’ll show how to effectively manage your packaging assets. Do you know who changed what, when they changed it and why? In our second example, see how technology can help you manage the packaging approval process. Finally, learn how to set the right expectations: accurately see how your packaging will look, next to its competition on the store shelf, before it’s even been produced.

Has your packaging ever told you when you can launch? Join our webinar to learn how you can take back control of your packaging supply chain.
