Intelligent Packaging by Stora Enso brings connectivity to packaging through Radio Frequency Identification (RFID), which as technology offers wide improvements compared to traditional barcode identification.
Intelligent packaging can support companies operating in the B2B and B2C by enabling real-time end to end visibility to the supply chain through effective track and trace functionalities.
Warehousing and inventory management processes can be made more efficient and accurate utilizing RFID technologies integrated into the packaging. More accurate planning and decision making are enabled by the data gathered from the connected packages.
Benefits of intelligent packaging are not only limited to cost savings, or better planning but will also ultimately improve sales through better customer service and satisfaction.
Digitalisation transforms fast moving consumer goods from mass-market retailing towards a more consumer-centric process. Companies must create more holistic omnichannel experiences to meet the changing consumer’s desires.
Stora Enso intelligent packaging solutions focus on four specific application areas. Our strategic consulting and creative partners help us provide the additional skills needed in implementing these solutions.
1. Offline retail connectivity with Smart Shelf concept
Through our Smart Shelf concept, we help both brand owners and retailers to digitalize offline retail by supplying data, integrating digitally provided customer services and automating campaign ramp-up from digital screens and spaces.
2. New product experiences
We help brand owners to integrate digital content into their products. Consumers can easily access the right app simply by tapping the packaging with their smartphone.
3. Leaner supply chain management
Through our intelligent packaging solutions, we help logistics and delivery organisations to manage material streams not only as set but as individual products. This drives efficiency and leaner storage in addition to enabling more tailored product supplies.
4. Towards a data-driven business model
When retail, products and supply chains provide data, companies are able to move towards a data-driven business model. Our Cloud Platform acts as a gateway to data management and an integration point to the ERP or other cloud services.
