Industry 4.0 is here, and your digital transformation starts with BarTender enterprise labeling software.
Manufacturing is undergoing a revolution in automation and digitization. Trading partners have come to expect interoperability and supply chain transparency — if your processes aren’t automated, you’re losing business. New, exciting technologies and ideas are driving the digital transformation, things like AI, Internet of Things (IoT), digital twins.
But at its core, the data management — the actionable intelligence and connected information required — is built on data carriers, like barcodes and RFID. If an item can’t be identified by machine, like a barcode scanner or RFID interrogator, then Industry 4.0 fails.
Getting the connected supply chain right is a complex job. That’s why BarTender® barcode and label software is an integral component of the labeling strategies of the world’s discrete, process and additive manufacturers, from micro-manufacturers to the world’s largest global operations.
SMART LABELS ARE THE FOUNDATION OF YOUR DIGITAL TRANSFORMATION
The Internet of Things (IoT) provides the connections that enable the interoperability and transparency of Industry 4.0, and the IoT is built on RFID. With BarTender, the design and coding of RFID is as simple as creating a standard barcode.
And because BarTender can pull RFID, barcode and human readable data from a common data source, you can group production labeling, component labeling, shipping labeling and even bin labeling in one convenient label template file, increasing accuracy and capturing new efficiencies.
