  • Adopting Next-Generation Labeling Technology Enhances Enterprise Agility and Reduces Costs
    Published May 2015
    Labeling is frequently a background process that doesn't receive attention unless it causes a problem. As a result, bar-code and RFID labeling practices and software have become dated at many enterprises failing to keep pace with changing business needs. Companies continually look deeper into their operations and farther across their supply chains for opportunities to become more efficient. Often, they need to look no farther than their labeling processes for opportunities to improve responsiveness and reduce costs. This white paper, from NiceLabel, identifies the hidden costs, inefficiencies and risks resulting from legacy operations, and explains why a modern label-management platform is well-suited to current enterprise needs.
