How Global Healthcare Companies Are Streamlining Labelling To Meet Compliance Regulations

Label management processes are often overlooked as contributing to service delays, inefficiencies and overall expenditure. With regulations becoming increasingly scrupulous for the likes of Medical Device Manufacturers, Food and beverage Businesses and Healthcare Providers – spurred on by cases such as the PIP Breast Implant Scandal – there is now more reason than ever to adopt a centralised, secure and compliant labelling system to improve accuracy, compliance and overall business efficiency.

In this blog, we’ll explore the case study of a large healthcare company that has streamlined its entire labelling process by integrating the simple, straightforward cloud labelling solution MiTEQ is delivering to heavily regulated industries.

Background: A Global Healthcare Enterprise

With over 70,000 employees across more than 100 different countries and a market capitalisation of more than 50 billion, this healthcare enterprise supplies nutritional products and laboratory diagnostics to medical devices and pharmaceutical therapies.

The Vision: Simple, Standardized, Compliant

To meet constantly evolving regulatory requirements, this international supplier of nutritional and medical products needed a labelling system that could simplify, automate and better track label design requests while improving process efficiencies on the manufacturing floor and throughout distribution centres. They wanted to standardise and unify their labelling workflows and ensure that, as regulations evolved, their platform could become, too.

The Solution: Hundreds Of Man-Hours Saved

They could centralise their label design, printing, and management by integrating a complete label lifecycle management solution. They could reduce thousands of individual product labels into templates and groups of standard label information and eliminate paperwork while improving visibility and cross-team collaboration by controlling user access.
