Today's market place is more dynamic
Business today is more competitive and demanding than ever
before; due in part to what are now the common culprits -
globilisation and technological advancements. Increasing customer
demands can also be added to the list and this contributes to the
pressure that not only takes us to this level of 'expectation' but
equally, works to eliminate the outdated 'one size fits all' supply
Standard models no longer apply
Those who operate by a naive notion that a standard model can be
applied to all customers and suppliers do so at their own
Customisation, as a result of technological advancements and
better customer understanding, is now a standard part of business
operations. No one wants to be treated like a number.
Personalisation and a flexible approach to meet a customer's unique
demands is a needed response to the dynamic tide of today's market
Successful businesses engage supply chain models that exploit
operational strengths - it's common sense! And because individual
company based operations are only part of a successful chain,
relationship building with third party suppliers, with essential
and value adding capabilities becomes essential.
Flexibility and collaboration produce the best results
With individual business operations and external third parties
all working on a shared process, what becomes essential is the
degree of collaboration. Success here will depend on how well
companies collaborate to manage these important processes that
extend, potentially, across multiple company boundaries.
Flexibility in successful collaboration is like the moon and the
tides - one does not occur without the other. For a successful
collaboration there needs to be an acknowledgement of purpose and a
clear path laid to achieving it that meets and even better exceeds
If customer demands add to a competitive market place then you
need to exceed those demands to remain

whether we are working with a small or large business, we recognise
the importance of flexibility. Experience has taught us that
customers need and want suppliers who can work with their supply
chain, not try to impose their own.

customer should be at the core of all operations and an
understanding of the importance of listening to and of
understanding and responding to customer needs.
The range of label

range is varied to suit a number of applications, purpose, budgets
and brand expectations.
