"Like all manufacturers, CCL Label is always focused on operating at maximum efficiency with minimum waste," comments Paul Hoffman, Manager of Information System Development. "We have a lot of supply chain, manufacturing and sales data with multiple remote locations so it makes sense to channel this data into an enhanced reporting management tool.

MFG360 is helping us turn data into information that enables insight and delivers business intelligence."
Generating huge amounts of valuable data, CCL Label can now analyze all operational data within the MFG360 solution ensuring processes, materials, and end products are being delivered as efficiently as possible and time and target criteria required by each customer is fulfilled.
