Labelling and barcode specialist Loftware has acquired Gap Systems, a provider of SaaS based artwork management solutions headquartered in the UK. Loftware says it now extends its global presence and offers a new cloud-based digital platform with solutions that redefine how enterprises create, manage and print complex labelling and packaging artwork, and scale across their operations.
With this acquisition, Loftware says it “unites complementary companies, teams and solutions”. Loftware addresses a range of customer and regulatory mandates by producing mission-critical barcode labels and documents across the supply chain, while Gap Systems controls complex packaging artwork processes throughout the product lifecycle. The aim together is to address the full spectrum of labelling and packaging artwork requirements across a broad range of industries with a special focus on Pharmaceutical, Medical Device, Manufacturing, Food & Beverage, Chemical, Retail and Consumer Packaged Goods. The combined platform—whether used for labelling, artwork management or both—enables customers to improve time to market, mitigate risk, reduce supply chain complexity, optimize costs and increase agility.
