Labelmakers extends OFS rollout


Established in 1987, Labelmakers Group is a leading label supplier of label solutions for a range of market segments in Australasia, including fast moving consumer goods (FMCG), wine, smallgoods, personal care, household products, transport and track and trace. The company has multiple manufacturing sites in Victoria, South Australia, Western Australia and New Zealand.

Having used Operations Feedback Systems (OFS) software on six presses in its label-printing plant, Labelmakers recently decided to extend its OFS rollout at its Somerton facility in Victoria. OFS software will be configured on another five high-speed, wide web presses.

“The time was right for us to continue our rollout of OFS. We continue to find trends in our business that were not as visible without the data that streams from OFS,” said Labelmakers’ Andrew Bamford.

“By integrating this with Prism, our MRP software, we also get the added benefit of a fully live schedule across our entire business, where everybody from the planners to customer service to the factory knows where we are up to. OFS helps us achieve this by monitoring our machines and giving us real-time analytics.”

“Labelmakers has been a valued long-term client of OFS for some time now, and we are committed to ensuring that these new extensions to the plant are as successful as our previous installations,” said James Magee, National Sales Manager for OFS.

“During this process, we will also be enabling our new Analytics product suite, which is all part of our flexible software as a service model.”
