Matthews Intelligent Identification has launched its new product traceability solution, iDSnet in the USA through Matthews International.
Developed in-house, the iDSnet product traceability solution integrates coding and labelling equipment on a production line through a server or central PC.
The product was launched in the US market at Pack Expo in Chicago among 1,600 exhibiting companies from more than 110 countries.
Matthews’ MD, Lester Nichol said that the product traceability solution attracted a great deal of interest from leading global FMCG manufacturers.
According to Mr Nichol, the award-winning iDSnet product traceability software creates a more streamlined, efficient and quality-controlled operation.
This is done by integrating coding and labelling equipment on production lines through a server or central PC, which then delivers a product traceability solution throughout the business.
Matthews Intelligent Identification, the Australian leader in coding, labelling and product traceability solutions has a wide range of technologies including inkjet, laser, thermal transfer overprinting as well as labelling for applications ranging from simple date-codes to complex codes and logistic labels.
The iDSnet product traceability software was developed after Matthews saw a gap in the market for a solution to simplify the management of printers on the production line as well as eliminate coding errors.
Mr Nichol adds that coding and labelling errors cost Australian manufacturers hundreds of thousands of dollars each year. The idea was to improve visibility of the coding and labelling process while centralising the control to ensure the right code was put on the right product every time.
Developed in Australia by Matthews, the current version of the software was launched in the Australian market in 2009. It won the ‘Best New Product’ award at AUSPACK 2009, and presently has an impressive installation base in Australia.
