Boost Seminar – How Chr. Hansen transformed their labeling to meet the Industry 4.0 challenge

The future of pharmaceutical manufacturing is digital

For the highly-regulated life sciences and food & beverage industries, Industry 4.0 represents a unique challenge. There is no doubt that the future of all manufacturing is digital. Yet, how do we get there? What is the best approach and how can companies ensure that they follow an efficient, future-proof path to digitization, one that doesn’t result in a multitude of independent systems?

The key to meeting this challenge lies in integration – carefully selecting best-of-breed systems that will work seamlessly together to create a solid, digital foundation for the future. On 25 September 2019, we invite you to attend a half-day seminar where we will discuss best practices for label management in an SAP environment. You will hear from leading industry experts and IT professionals, who will share their knowledge and experience with creating an Industry 4.0-ready labeling environment.

What you will learn

  • Best practices in creating an integrated labeling solution: Find out how Chr. Hansen modernized their label management in an SAP environment
  • Understand the role that labeling plays in digital transformation
  • Identify four key ways to prepare your labeling for Industry 4.0

Date: September 25, 2019
Time: 11:00 – 15:00
