We recently had an enquiry from a trade organisation that wanted to purchase some temperature indicating labels and then sub-distribute them to their members. They would design the labels to meet an industry specification and standard to ensure their members received a product that functioned correctly but also met certain standards.
This got me thinking about ways in which we could use ideas of collaborative consumption to provide products to our customers that are both functional and very competitively priced. This could mean that two or more companies, or a trade body that shares technology or business connections could utilise combined purchasing power to benefit from economies of scale, thus obtaining bespoke temperature sensitive products with special functionality or design changes at lower prices.
We can tailor all our temperature labels, indicators and tags so long as the design requirements are within some particular parameters and the quantity meets some minimums. Some customers may have overseas facilities and subsidiaries that could potentially use a similar product for temperature measurement and could combine their purchasing power to get a tailored product at a lower price.
We’re always open to new ideas about how we can change and adapt our temperature label products. We recently implemented a design change across our Retort Check food canning steam sterilisation indicator in response to one customer’s needs – the change made a lot of sense and we therefore rolled it on all lines.
Please feel free to contact us if you think we can help. We want to make sure that our products meet your needs and that we continue to offer the best possible service to our customers, wherever they are located and however the products are used.
