Efficient Labels and Packaging Print Automation

As label and packaging production has gone digital, run lengths have dramatically decreased and variability increased.

It has created a challenging cocktail for manufacturers that demands an entirely new skill set to ensure ruthless attention to cost is balanced by the need for flexible production and on time delivery.

Automatically queue and batch

Orders are seamlessly queued according to your business rules and then batched following the rules that you define customized to time of day and day of week. You can even automate work directly onto the press in a completely zero-touch workflow. It’s all under your control using the intuitive drag and drop Flow Designer.

Dynamically impose

Flow Designer is fully integrated with Imposition Designer and enables the creation of dynamic impositions which can read in the very last minute information onto Batch sheets and Job tickets, right down to the name of the press operator and other finishing instructions.

BOM and pick integration

Full Bill of Materials (BOM) support together with a rich Picking system (with Pick Validation) means that you have strict control of your raw materials. ZenSmart can even issue live consumption information directly to your inventory or ERP system.

Track yield, monitor performance, control fails

A core part of the ZenSmart solution is strict tracking of every process stage. Every unit of work is barcoded and every action by every person and every machine is recorded with the who, what, where and when of work. Any fails in workflow can only be processed by use of the integrated QA Fail App which has strict authority limits. Together this creates a complete story of what was involved in the manufacture of each order, where cost is varying and where productivity could be improved.

Ensure everything is produced to SLA

A rich set of tools to ensure easy performance to SLA is integral to ZenSmart. Due dates are set on order creation which can be defined by you in Flow Designer to follow any combination of fields to set the Due Date rule. Color coded impositions provide production floor easy visual reference and the powerful WIP manager provides the management oversight to ensure that product is moving through production at the flow rate to ensure SLA is achieved. Rich dashboards support real time communication to production staff and supervisors and a culture of superior performance.

Integrate with 3rd party systems

ZenSmart is built as a completely open platform. Create your own endpoints to enable other systems to pull information from ZenSmart or define triggers that send payloads for consumption events or fails. You can even auto send emails or alerts when orders reach particular workflow stages to keep customers continually informed.
