Learn about Zimmer Biomet’s implementation of their Global Enterprise Labeling System and its use in preparing for EU MDR

New labeling system enables regulatory compliance and unprecendented systems efficiencies at medical device manufacturer Zimmer Biomet

As medical device manufacturer Zimmer Biomet grew through merger and acquisition, they sought to harmonize different labeling systems across their global facilities with two goals in mind: to gain the efficiencies that standardized labeling processes offer; and to enable global compliance, especially with the pending European Medical Device Regulation (EU MDR). Zimmer Biomet chose ROBAR software from Innovatum, with label design and print powered by BarTender®.

Top 5 Trends in Enterprise Labeling

Labeling requirements are more complex than ever. These days, labeling within the life sciences industry needs to be data driven and dynamic to keep up with changing client needs and regulatory standards. Here’s a rundown on the top 5 trends in enterprise labeling.


  1. Regulations – Changing regulations are having an impact across all industries, particularly those in which package labeling affects customer safety, such as pharmaceutical and medical device labeling. Regulatory standards include ePedigree, UDI, DQSA as well as many new International standards that are on the horizon.
  1. Centralization—More and more companies are centralizing bar code labeling across multiple geographical locations. The three most important factors in centralization are: enabling labeling consistency, reducing IT maintenance costs and ensuring business continuity.
  1. Customer responsiveness – Customers are demanding adherence to labeling requirements, which is leading to a supply chain that is directly intersecting with labeling. This development is largely in response to the clients’ own desire to maintain efficiency by having their providers stick to their individual labeling standards.
  1. Integrated and data driven labeling – Although this concept is not a new one the growing demand for label accuracy is pushing the importance of data driven labeling. The data-driven approach enables the pulling in of dynamic data at label print time.
  1. Supplier’s increasing role in labeling –Partners’ and suppliers’ expectations are reaching beyond meeting internal needs and becoming much more globally interconnected. The most important consideration in this regard are: cost of relabeling, reducing labeling errors and successful supply chain collaboration. Requirements for compliance with UDI make this more complex.

Enterprise Labeling – Cost Reduction Capability

These days, life sciences businesses dealing with global supply chains face an increasing number of important challenges. These include:

  • the need to increase supply chain transparency
  • the need to centralize label printing and have multiple remote printers at different geographic locations
  • label printerusing automation to reduce the number of label templates
  • language translation
  • changing labels rapidly to suit customer needs
  • providing labeling solutions in high volume
  • reducing the risk of counterfeit labels
  • reducing manufacturing costs

This last challenge is possibly one of the most important and an appropriate enterprise labeling is a great way to meet this challenge. An Enterprise Labeling Management System provides an enterprise class level of functionality and robustness, yet it can be scaled down to fit the smallest of organizations. Over time, you will begin to feel the pull of your growing supply chain, changing client demands and tightening government regulations. If you want to adapt to these changes with the most cost-effective solution, enterprise labeling is the way to go.

What is Enterprise Labeling?

Enterprise labeling for the life sciences industry centers around a database driven, and fully configurable computer system which tightly controls label design, rework, language translation, print and reprint and all of this can be done per 21 CFR Part 11 requirements. An enterprise labeling can save you money by reducing the waste of unnecessary stock by supporting on-demand printing as well as custom label design. The validated and automated nature of the system helps to eliminate labeling related errors that can result in expensive recalls.
