Delivering collaboration and connectivity in a post-COVID world

The importance of collaboration and the ability for a business to pivot its organization to enable remote working has not just been reinforced, but rather hammered home during the recent pandemic.

As companies still try to get a handle on maintaining operations in a world in the grip of the coronavirus (COVID-19) crisis, the importance of using improved connectivity and digitization to successfully cope with not only spikes in demand but also the most simple daily operations has come to the fore.

Today’s packaging industry was already demanding faster turnaround times, high quality results and the ability to make key information accessible to all stakeholders at all times. But the continuing uncertainty of what lies ahead, means that converters are looking for improved communication and collaboration to boost their own efficiency and productivity, in order to deliver a critical competitive edge.

Even before the pandemic hit, managing artwork, all packaging related information and last-minute changes for an ever-growing number of SKUs was causing clear bottlenecks for many in the industry. Making the correct information available online ensures it is both easier to communicate and get approvals, while also maintaining complete security and traceability along the entire process; something that has proven absolutely critical during the recent few months.
