Pharma manufacturer Boehringer Ingelheim has recruited label design and management systems specialist NiceLabel to develop a global standardized labeling process.

The German pharma had previously announced it would adopt a global SAP system in an effort to streamline its global operations. As part of that effort, it brought NiceLabel on board for its label management system.

NiceLabel’s tools include a built-in document management system that will let Boehringer replace its manual quality control procedures with a digitized quality assurance process. It will be integrated with Boehringer’s ERP systems, SAP ECC, which will provide a centralized way of updating label information and allow for much faster label change requests.

“It’s great to see how Boehringer Ingelheim is really using the full spectrum of our label management system,” Ken Moir, NiceLabel’s vice president of marketing, said in a statement.

Boehringer first introduced the system at its manufacturing sites in Ingelheim, Germany, and Sant Cugat, Spain. The company plans to launch the system at plants in Dortmund, Germany, and Koropi, Greece. Additionally, the system is expected to be used for non-production purposes such as warehouse and quality management.
