About Packaging Content Management (PCM)

Content management allows teams to specify, manage, and reuse content (text, claims, etc.) for artwork designs without manual copying and pasting. As part of WebCenter, it connects your content and workflow directly to the artwork creation process.

Manage the creation, review, and reuse of the following content for packaging artwork:

  • Symbols
  • Text (and translations)
  • Tables
  • Images
  • Barcodes

About Structured Content Management (SCM)

Structured content, like packaging content, is every element that comprises an output, whether it’s an artwork, an IFU, or any other type of output required in the end-to-end labelling process. SCM simplifies the creation and update of these various outputs through content reuse, improved methods of content creation and approvals, and automation of output creation and updates. As part of WebCenter, it connects your content and workflow directly to the artwork creation process.

Simplify, streamline, and reuse content needed to create the following items in a single system:

  • Company Core Data Sheets (CCDS)
  • Quality Review Documents (QRD)
  • Instructions for Use (IFUs)
  • Artwork content sheet (ACS)
  • Leaflets
  • User Guides
  • Regulatory content
