Key pharma decision makers highlight their labeling challenges
What are the key labeling challenges facing pharmaceutical manufacturers today? A recent survey conducted by Pharmaceutical Manufacturing reveals that many manufacturers still use legacy systems for label printing and production. There is a world of opportunity out there for pharma manufacturers if they digitally transform their labeling.
14% Have achieved full integration
26% Fully integrated printers
34% Using separate systems
The key to reducing costs and seizing market opportunities
NiceLabel technology enables pharmaceutical companies to use a single software platform for all printing devices and for all packaging and shipping, from primary to tertiary labeling. With NiceLabel, you can meet regulatory requirements faster, reduce labor costs, get product to market faster and avoid recalls related to labeling errors. The result will be a more agile manufacturing operation that will enable your company to meet current and future challenges and compete in an increasingly complex market environment.
Drug recalls have increased more than 65% over past ten years.
50% of pharmaceutical recalls are due to errors in product labeling or packaging artwork.
The average cost to distribute a recall notice is $8 million.
Product recalls, now occurring about 20 times / week in pharmaceuticals in the U.S. alone.

Use serialization as a springboard for digital transformation
Some might view serialization as another in the seemingly never-ending list of regulatory requirements aimed at the pharmaceutical industry.
At NiceLabel, we view it as something else: an opportunity for pharmaceutical manufacturers to digitally transform their entire label production process.
If pharmaceutical manufacturers seize this opportunity, they can turn what was a routine compliance exercise into a game-changing tool for complete process improvement.

Streamline validation and ensure compliance
NiceLabel’s validation acceleration pack (VAP) offers a standardized approach to streamline validation in a regulated environment.
Whether you have an off the shelf solution or configured the Label Management System for your environment, NiceLabel’s validation acceleration pack aligns with FDA and EU regulatory requirements to allow you to easily maintain a validated and compliant labeling solution.
Digitally transform your operations with NiceLabel
NiceLabel’s label management system, LMS Enterprise, enables you to automate label and direct marking printing by implementing a standardized integration with your Manufacturing Execution System (MES) at each site. By centralizing the master data and establishing a single source of truth, you can eliminate manual data entry errors, mislabeling and associated costs.
Integrate label printing with MES and ERP
NiceLabel technology enables pharmaceutical companies to use a single software platform for all printing devices and for all packaging and shipping, from primary to tertiary labeling. By digitizing your label production process, you can meet regulatory requirements faster, reduce labor costs, get products to market faster and avoid recalls related to labeling errors. The result will be a more agile manufacturing operation that will enable your company to meet current and future challenges and compete in an increasingly complex market environment.
A document management system that streamlines regulatory requirements
LMS Enterprise includes a document management system (DMS) that was built for regulatory labeling. The DMS provides role-based access, document versioning, configurable approval workflows, electronic records and electronic signatures (ERES) necessary to conform to FDA and EU regulations. The DMS offers many other features built for life sciences, including a graphical “label comparison” tool help consolidate template variations and provide quality assurance. The DMS is a centralized digital label catalogue that controls and streamlines the entire label lifecycle management.
Electronic records and audit trails that exceed life science regulations
LMS Enterprise includes a unique “client-side” web printing system that you can use to extend the same high standard printing solution to your contract manufacturers, distributors and other business partners in minutes. By reducing relabeling and manual quality assurance checks, the system significantly improves the efficiency of the supply chain and reduces labor and inventory costs. The unique "client-side" technology empowers your business partners to configure and manage any of their existing printers.
Approve labels for every SKU and avoid creating many label templates
NiceLabel’s label variant technology enables life sciences companies to approve each and every label that is created, down to the SKU level. NiceLabel integrates with your master label data for each SKU and merges it with templates in real time, creating a snapshot of “print compliant labels” that are ready for approval. You approve every label variant for every SKU without having to manually create hundreds or thousands of label variations. Control over label templates results in compliant labels, less label change requests and reduced quality control costs.
Manage label data to reduce quality control costs
Our label management system helps you manage, or even create your master data. You can rapidly configure a data management application with minimal or no coding. The application can manage data from multiple sources and you can easily set up business rules that will automatically select the right data, label template and printer required for your business process. Control over label data results in a streamlined labeling process, compliant labels, less label change requests and reduced quality control costs.
Change and transport system built for life sciences
LMS Enterprise fits seamlessly into the typical, multi-tier IT landscape of pharmaceutical companies and includes a change and transport system for controlled and streamlined promotion of changes through different environments (Development/Quality Assurance/Production).
Extend the system to your contract manufacturers
LMS Enterprise includes a unique "client-side" web printing system that you can use to extend the same high standard printing solution to your contract manufacturers, distributors and other business partners in minutes. By reducing relabeling and manual quality assurance checks, the system significantly improves the efficiency of the supply chain and reduces labor and inventory costs. The unique "client-side" technology empowers your business partners to configure and manage any of their existing printers.
Unite all your printers with one system
LMS Enterprise supports a wide range of industrial printers used in the pharmaceutical industry. These include label, print and apply, continuous inkjet, laser marking, thermal transfer overprinters and thermal inkjet. This enables you to work with one label management system that is capable of integrating all your label and direct marking printers with your organization’s MES and ERP systems.
