Achieving Efficiency and Automation Goals Amidst a Challenging Labor Market
It’s something that all businesses strive for, and has been a top-of-mind priority for years in the package printing industry — the omnipresent goals of increased efficiency, and as a result, increased revenue.
But in a challenging labor market, where finding skilled workers is harder than ever, making these progressive steps toward faster production doesn’t follow the traditional paths it once did. That is why label and package printers are turning to tools such as digital printing and automation that can remove manual steps from the production process.
On Tuesday, Jan. 26, Packaging Impressions will host a live webinar featuring two experts on the topic of automation, and how printers and converters can implement it. Todd Frendt, COO of Century Label, a leading label and package printer in Bowling Green, Ohio, and Mike Agness, Executive VP of HYBRID Software will join me in a conversation that will dive deep into strategies that packaging companies can implement to get faster, while remaining lean.
Century Label has been on the cutting edge of digital printing, having installed its first digital press in 2000. Since then, Century has invested in multiple HP Indigo digital press platforms, including becoming the first install site in the United States of the HP Indigo 8000. During the webinar, Frendt will share how embracing these digital technologies, along with customization tools including HP SmartStream Mosaic and Collage, have led to significant growth.
Beyond the physical equipment that printers and converters can strategically implement to increase their automation and efficiency, the technology that ties it all together is a key component. As a company that provides key software solutions that can enhance a converter’s workflow, increase the flexibility of communication with customers, and digitize multiple formerly manual processes, HYBRID Software has been at the forefront of several automation initiatives across the packaging realm.
Agness will share his insights and advice to printers and converters looking to meet the needs of today’s efficiency demands, and share how software solutions can help those goals become a reality without increasing the internal headcount.
