B & H Labeling Systems Offers In-Depth Total Cost of Ownership Analysis to Improve Customer's Decision Making Process
06-24-2008 - (Ceres, CA)
B & H Labeling Systems introduces its newest version of their Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) Model, which produces a side-by-side comparison of the total financial impact of any two labeling technologies. The model can also compare the total financial impact of labeled versus printed containers, including the inventory costs associated with printed containers. Analyzing a comprehensive list of operational and material variables based on their financial impact, B & H's proprietary TCO analysis process enables customers to make sound business decisions regarding labeling technologies based on the total cost of ownership instead of purchase decisions based on equipment features and benefits.
The B & H TCO Model is designed to calculate the total financial impact of the current system in use and the new technology being considered based on a side-by-side comparison of common measures. Capable of comparing various technologies such as pressure sensitive, cut-and-stack, roll-fed and shrink sleeve labeling from a wide range of suppliers, as well as printed containers, this TCO analysis is ideal for companies considering upgrading or installing new labeling technology such as B & H's Marathon® roll-fed and Endura® shrink sleeve labeling systems.
The comprehensive TCO process is managed and led by B & H personnel. B & H personnel do most of the work, and the customer gets all of the benefit. The process begins with a four- to six-hour visit by B & H personnel to the customer's plant to observe the current production line and to collect production information. Data such as changeover downtime, unplanned downtime and scrap are collected by B & H during the plant visit. B & H also works with appropriate plant personnel to collect additional data needed to complete the TCO analysis. As data is entered, the TCO model instantly calculates and compares operating costs, production outputs and production value to determine the total annual financial impact of both the existing technology and the new labeling technology. When the TCO analysis is completed, B & H shares all data and results with appropriate company personnel.
Every TCO analysis is unique to each customer's operation. There is no cost and no obligation associated with this customized, in-depth TCO analysis, and all data collected during the process is treated in a highly and strictly confidential manner.

"The TCO Model has been in use for over two years at B & H. It allows us to dig deep and provide each company with a detailed cost analysis of various labeling alternatives based on their unique application. It is a serious tool," noted Roman Eckols, President and CEO of B & H. "Labeling has a substantial financial impact on any production line, and our TCO Model allows customers to fully understand the financial impact of their labeling options so they can make solid business decisions."
