Unilever Implements Kallik's AMS Trade Solution

Unilever's European Deodorant Division (Unilever Deo RTC Europe) announces the implementation of Kallik's AMS Trade software solution to fully automate the creation of its artworks for TUC (Trading Unit Code) labelling and other associated secondary packaging. Developed by Kallik AMS Trade provides an easy to use, highly automated artwork authoring, development and management software solution, that reduces cycle time and risks associated with artwork management and production. Using AMS Trade, Unilever Deo RTC Europe has reduced the cycle time of its labelling innovation process by 98% - processing a three-month backlog of 400 pending artwork designs in just a few hours.

Unilever evaluated a number of options to improve the speed and output quality of its artwork production process, ensure consistent barcode compliance and facilitate the "on-demand" online printing process, which until recently was duplicating the data and increasing the risk of errors. After a rigorous evaluation process, Kallik's AMS Trade was selected, primarily for its functionality, ease of use, and low risk implementation process (zero impact on existing systems). The application, which utilises data published by Unilever's existing SAP system, was deployed in under four weeks.
