The challenge

Replace outdated artwork approval system

Goodman Fielder was looking to replace their outdated artwork approval system with a solution which focused its strengths in the area of packaging.

Goodman Fielder needed to more efficiently manage the increasing number of packaging designs, allowing streamlining any changes or updates to the artwork in an efficient manner via standard web-browsers, both in the office and via mobile devices, as so many project managers frequently work out of the office or on the road.

WebCenter was chosen due to its simple yet powerful user interface and its seamless integration with our pre-press and print suppliers.
