Most companies today implement methods to track products, maintain inventory, and to perform additional actions with the aid of technology. Serialized labels offer a way to track information based on more specific data including a serial number. They make it possible for businesses to improve implemented practices and are extremely helpful in the following areas:
- Inventory Management
- Providing Product Data
- Keeping Track of Certain Data Internally
- Improving Warranty Processes
- Supporting Logistics
Serialized labels offer a data driven solution capable of increasing business process performance and the overall customer experience. These labels can frequently be found on computers, appliances, and even medicines for improved service. They allow a company to track various aspects of a product outside of the manufacturer and price.
How are Serialized Labels Different?
Traditionally, bar codes have been used to track and manage products or inventory for businesses. However, bar codes do not provide the same level of data as what can be obtained from a serialized label. A bar code will show basic information about the product. For example, a product on a shelf will have a bar code that provides the product name and price. If it is linked to an inventory system, then it may also provide the stock count when scanned.
Serialized labels can be found on products with warranties, electronic items, or any product where additional data is necessary. They help companies quickly service the product and meet customer needs. Due to the nature of these labels, they are designed to adhere to many surfaces as well as can be customized to meet specific needs. Nameplates are a good example because they contain these details:
- Model Number
- Weight and Size
- Manufacturer Price
- Purchase Date
- Manufacturing Date
These are just a few details you can include on a serialized label based on needs. This type of label is also important any time a warranty is provided with the product. As a business, these types of labels can be used on consumer products or internally to accomplish specific tasks. Flexo-Graphics offers several printing solutions to help meet our customer’s needs.
