Creation Reprographics has embarked on a collaboration with MIS specialist Label Traxx to bring about smart manufacturing through enhanced digital systems.
This saw Label Traxx design and develop an advanced software system that gives customers the ability to send digital print orders to Creation, resulting in an overall leaner production environment.
Creation, itself a specialist packaging artwork, reprographics, plate and screen producer, identified this as a response to the need for a more advanced printing infrastructure as print becomes more sophisticated and output quality improves.
Matt Francklow, managing director at Creation Reprographics, said: ‘The printing world is facing many technological changes which increase the urgent demand for premium quality products and services that can only be supplied by a high level of productivity. This requirement needs sophisticated processing systems and more automated manufacturing.’
Creation has embedded the Label Traxx system into its own software, CreationLink, a streamlined and automated digital workflow system. This fully integrates all business activities – from artwork to plate production – into a single automated process to deliver enhanced production efficiency and client satisfaction.
Francklow continued: ‘Label Traxx provides a central system to manage the entire print workflow from beginning to end. By using the system, a label printer can place an order for flexographic plates online and the purchase order feeds directly through to Creation for processing 24/7.
‘For us, having this system in place for our customers has been revolutionary in terms of business performance and driving customer satisfaction. It has resulted in less manual operations resulting in fewer human errors, less waste and leaner production.’
Tim Hollins, business solutions manager at Label Traxx, added: ‘With higher volumes of orders than ever before, it has never been more essential to optimize workflow and streamline administration and operations. Not only is our MIS system simple and user friendly for our clients, it can enhance production efficiency and client loyalty. We work closely with our customers to ensure Label Traxx gives them the right tools to manage their business effectively.’
