Enterprise labeling is the process of labeling goods as they move through the supply chain in order to meet the demands for efficiency, accuracy and complete visibility that today’s complex supply chain requires. It’s necessary for companies to stay competitive. The term refers to one coherent plan that allows companies to tackle managing multiple printers and printing supplies, variable labeling needs, label stocks and labeling software that works with existing platforms, applications, and programs used to run the business.
