Project Information

While initiating an artwork project, information related to the project can be entered in a form. The form fields can be configured to include the fields that you need. Data in the form can be fetched from Master Data (e.g. Brand, Sub-brand, etc.) within ManageArtworks or from other systems like ERP, PLM and PIM. Master data is typically presented as pick lists for the user to select. ...

Projects can include a single component or one SKU with multiple components or multiple SKUs with multiple components. E.g. 12 oz. Apple Juice Label (single component), 12 oz.

External teams

This also ensures that one vendor does not see another vendor’s data or activities

Templates are convenient and quick to use as everything is pre-set and all you have to do is put in the project information and initiate a workflow
