Being a global leading supplier in personal health and safety protection solutions, Ansell produces approximately 10.000 SKUs. This results in numerous complex packaging projects with many language, size and regional variations.
Packaging requirements for a portfolio of global products
Ansell’s internal system for managing the packaging production required users from across the globe to manually handle communications, track versions, and approvals.
This process was time consuming and cumbersome, taking anywhere from 60 to 90 days to create a package.
Bringing stakeholders together
To bring a new level of efficiency and accuracy to the process, Ansell sought out the packaging production expertise and solutions offered by Esko.
Ansell adopted Esko WebCenter, a unique and powerful web-based platform that manages packaging pre-production specification, approval and project life cycle.
Ansell adopted Esko WebCenter and branded it as the Ansell WebCenter
Each stakeholder in Ansell’s process now has better control over the aspects of the package they are responsible for, such as brand guidelines and legal or regulatory content control.
An impressive improvement
Less than a year after adopting WebCenter, Ansell has experienced a 50% decrease in the amount of time it takes to produce a package. Implementing a change can now take as little as 21 days.
Once all approvals have been secured, the project gets final approval from the Project Manager and is automatically sent to production
