Total Financial Impact (TFI): Labeling Technology
Labeling and container decoration have a substantial financial impact on any production line.
Labeling equipment also has a long useful life, and the ongoing costs of maintaining this equipment are an important part of labeling's total financial impact. But the costs of maintaining the labeling equipment are only part of the total financial impact story.
- Do you know how many variables contribute to labeling's total financial impact?
- Do you know which of these variables are more or less important to your operations?
- Do you have a tool that can help you easily calculate the total financial impact of labeling in your operation?
We use a comprehensive Total Financial Impact Model and process to calculate the total financial impact of any two labeling or container decoration technologies that produce the same end result. The model is designed to address over 100 different variables that influence total financial impact, in an easy to use, side-by-side format that quickly reveals the specific variables that require attention in your operation.
Our model and process have been in use for over over ten years and we have completed over 150 analyses for customers and prospective customers that have compared the total financial impact of our Marathon series of labelers to a wide variety of competitive technologies. These real world comparisons included:
- Marathon versus competitive linear roll-fed labelers
- Marathon versus competitive rotary roll-fed labelers
- Marathon versus printed containers (aerosol cans and screen printed plastic bottles)
- Marathon versus pressure sensitive technology
- Marathon versus roll-through cut & stack technology
- Marathon versus rotary cut & stack technology
- Marathon versus full body shrink sleeve technology
- Marathon versus older B & H labelers
Why are we so focused on total financial impact? There are three simple reasons:
- Business is about $ and ¢. And since business is about $ and ¢, we think it is more important to talk to our customers about total financial impact than features and benefits with unknown or undetermined value to them and their operations.
- Labeling has a substantial financial impact on any production line, so the $ and ¢ involved with labeling are worth understanding and considering.
- Marathon labelers offer high productivity and low operating costs, which means their total financial impact can be superior to many other technologies.
