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.

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.
