The Underestimated Importance of the Label

The Underestimated Importance of the Label

This IDC Perspective looks at the many uses of labels and how labels themselves have evolved to serve the supply chain community. Supply chains make the world go "round." It's a reality of the business, but oftentimes, professionals take for granted the innovations that at times feel unoriginal because they are so baked into daily processes. One of the most underappreciated of these is the label. According to Victoria Brown, research director, IDC Retail Insights, "Labels are the unsung hero of the supply chain. They enable companies to make organization out of chaos and are a tool to give those companies visibility into their inventory, and the ability to scale with confidence in their product assortment, inventory, and provenance."
