Date: 10 May


Time: 2PM London/3PM CET

Label print speed and label accuracy are important for every supply chain. Companies need to get products out the door as fast as possible and if label data is inaccurate, you can face costly fines and recalls.

GSK, one of the world’s leading pharmaceutical companies, had over 26 different labeling solutions and 40 manufacturing sites worldwide. With no centralized control of its labeling, this brought on a host of challenges that resulted in data siloes, compliance risk, and a cumbersome label processes.

Working with Loftware, GSK centralized and automated its labeling processes by integrating labeling with SAP ECC and across its global landscape. Attendees will learn how GSK drives labeling directly from SAP, across 40 manufacturing sites and over 3500 label printers, to ensure accurate labeling across their global supply chain.

Attendees will also learn how GSK:

• Leverages SAP as a source of truth and drives label printing dynamically from SAP ECC business transactions
• Quickly reacts to changing regulatory and market-driven requirements to meet the rigors of high-volume label printing across its global landscape
• Significantly improved labeling consistency across its global SAP landscape
• Manages regional and customer label demands across the globe, including support for local
