Ever wonder how many packaging changes a global candy, food and pet care company like Mars makes a year? 9,000. Yes, Mars makes 9,000 changes per year and estimates one packaging change per hour, meaning there’s plenty of collaboration across departments but also plenty of room for errors.
Mars was frustrated because they frequently encountered packaging changes, multiple emails, rounds of approvals and lost files.
According to Mars’ Packaging Graphics Project Manager, Ebbe van EssVeldt, “Before WebCenter, we were struggling with process – there was no clear visibility, projects would get stuck, and we encountered failed deadlines.”
The packaging graphics team was looking for a packaging artwork management solution that would make it easy to track project status, gain approvals quickly and provide a central place that held all their KPIs.
