Packaging Producers Urged to Take Control of their Artwork Assets and Make Attractive Savings

The global nutraceuticals, functional food & drinks and dietary supplements industry spend billions of dollars on packaging artwork assets yet many may be failing to manage, store or reuse them efficiently.
Ireland, Dublin 15, Ireland (pr4links.com) 12/05/2011
Geneva, Switzerland, May 12, 2011 -- The Perigord Group today released the latest version of the revolutionary Internet-based GLAMS system, Global Artwork Management System at the Vitafoods 2011 Europe exposition. The online Artwork Management System has been developed to assist packaging managers and teams control and manage artwork from concept through to printing. It places total control over artwork in the customer’s hands, enabling better management of costs. What’s more, the software solution has been developed to GMP (Good Manufacturing Standards) and is fully validatable.

pharmalineThe system delivers a cutting edge workflow solution combined with an innovative artwork asset management system. The introduction of the GLAMS Global Artwork Management System promises to bring new benefits to companies who produce volumes of artwork, such as marketing materials or packaging.

‘Global companies are spending billions of dollars per annum on artwork and packaging assets but many may be failing to protect these assets adequately’ say Mark Ennis, Senior Business Manager with The Perigord Group. “The actual asset, which in artwork terms are the original digital files, can often end up left with the advertising or creative agency who produced the piece or on the desk of the printer, invariably not in the possession of the organisation which actually owns the asset! This limits an organisation’s ability to re-purpose or leverage the asset, with agencies often charging retrieval or re-working fees for artwork and influencing the choice of print vender.” This is the latest release from the GLAMS product family.

GLAMS creates a central online storage area that accepts all files using recognised industry standards, to provide a single point of proof. GLAMS allows all involved parties to participate directly in the print production process and to generate artwork in a unified tracking and management flow. GLAMS integrates with all aspects of the artwork life cycle according to and in compliance with relevant industry standards and the customer’s specific needs. “The GLAMS system leverages the inherent efficiencies of the Internet in a new generation solution that provides companies with greater cost efficiencies and more localised market control over artwork production,” Ennis, stressed today. “Any company that produces volumes of artwork such as packaging will benefit from the GLAMS system.”

The specific customer benefits to be stressed include:

• Cost savings - A quotation module to help businesses efficiently tender design and print work.

• An automatic artwork module to help businesses eliminate artwork costs on template based jobs.

• Time saving. Eliminates delays for signing off artwork.

• Ownership - All native files are ultimately stored in the customer’s GLAMS repository as opposed to being left with a third party vender.

• Traceability - Electronic signatures that provide an audit trail and accountability throughout the creative process.

• Control that allows users to stop and start production to suit manufacturing capacities or last minute regulatory changes or marketing campaign adjustments.
• Flexibility that gives new or temporary outsource vendors controlled access to artwork collateral when capacity is an issue. 

• Real time decision making made possible as the entire system solution is hosted from the Internet.

All of the above can be achieved with online inputs from any location via Secure Remote Web Access, thus eliminating the need for decision makers to be in house.
