CoLOS Promotional Coding
To ensure proper product distribution and compliance, CoLOS® Promotional Coding applies unique marketing codes to each and every product at full line speeds, enabling more flexibility to achieve both always-on and “on demand” promotions.
Flexible promotional coding
The system distributes pre-prepared unique codes from central storage to individual coders. The codes are printed at real-time production rates without the need for expensive local control equipment.
Promotion coding can be switched on by production order or individual product code for on-demand promotions or be permanently enabled as needed by the overall promotion.
The system not only provides integration for the codes to be printed, but it also produces reports of what codes have been printed that can be exported for use in the end-consumer code redemption system of choice for the promotion.
Efficient brand enhancement
Using the same coder for date and promotion coding with data-driven control enables greater flexibility and better adaptability to enhance promotional marketing campaigns.
Distributing and printing codes at production time rather than at the packaging manufacturer means simplified management of codes to be printed. Last-minute changes of production are easy to achieve.
Unique product fingerprints enable the creation of an open dialogue with consumers through mobile marketing activations. Particularly for pointsredemption loyalty schemes.
To ensure proper product distribution and compliance, CoLOS® Pallet Track automatically applies compliant tracking labels (LPN or GS1 SSCC) to pallets and reports data in real-time to supply chain information systems.
Accurate inventory control
Compliance starts with the label design. Using design wizards ensures that GS1-compliant labels are designed with the correct data structures that can be read throughout the supply chain.
The CoLOS Pallet Track solution is designed to fit exactly into your pallet labeling operations and gives you full flexibility for pallet identification, data management, and production control sequences.
Two-way communications with hosts data systems and line control systems ensure that the right data is printed and applied to the correct pallet and per pallet information is exported for use in the distribution chain.
Enhanced supply chain compliance
Tracking each pallet throughout the supply chain using the data from compliant labels will allow you to manage targeted recalls quickly and efficiently.
Benefit from a detailed level of granularity on your stock and by recording each pallet in your warehouse management system or ERP you benefit from more accurate inventory management and control.
Ensure the right product with the right code is delivered at the right place every time to maximize product security to the consumer.
