Esko’s Platform For Brands, the leading packaging management system, comes loaded with GlobalVision functionality. GlobalVision is the world leader in online packaging quality control.
GlobalVision’s dedicated functionality makes online proofing straightforward and safe. Esko Platform For Brands has GlobalVision tools on board to ensure that the correct barcodes and braille text have been placed into the artwork.
Braille, both glue dots and embossed on the printed component can be inspected and translated against the PDF file to make sure that that there are no missing or added dots.
Barcodes can be decoded and graded according to ANSI/ISO standards to make guaranteed scannable barcodes.
Different industries have different definitions for ‘packaging quality’. The food and beverages brands, for instance, have completely different challenges and worries than the chemical, cosmetic and pharmaceutical brands.
While the food industry may be very concerned about printed color and not as concerned about copy errors, the pharmaceutical industry uses limited brand colors, but sees broken and missing type as a huge concern.
Packaging mistakes of all kinds equals not only loss of time and revenue but also the potential for product recalls and, most seriously, patient safety issues. It’s no wonder, then, that brands are very keen on using intelligent online proofing systems to reduce the possibility of errors.
Did you know that the FDA estimates that 51% of food and drug recalls can be attributed to labeling errors?
Quality control, standardized collaboration, and approval protocols for printed packaging are essential for brands.
We help our customers to make the best packaging for billions of consumers.
