Throughout March, Label Insight is profiling female leaders from across our company in honor of Women’s History Month. The contributions of these individuals to our industry and our company are significant and inform a perspective we hope will be valuable and inspirational to the next generation of women in technology.
We’re excited to share our newest offering: Label Insight QR Codes. Paired with our best-in-class SmartLabel solution, CPGs can now manage the process from package to digital experience for their consumers all in one place. It’s estimated that 11 million households scanned a QR Code in 2020 in the US alone and 64% of people believe that QR Codes make life easier in a touchless world. Mobile payment leader Paypal embraced QR code-based payment as a result of the pandemic making it available to their 325 million account holders. From mobile payments, to digital menus at restaurants, to product information on packaging, QR Codes have proven to be a versatile asset for businesses in every industry.

As consumers increasingly move online to buy groceries, fresh food products still represent a unique challenge for grocery retailers. According to a survey by Mintel, just one in ten Americans reports having bought fresh produce, meat, poultry, and fish through e-commerce with a majority of respondents pointing to a lack of trust in freshness, food safety concerns, and an inability to see, touch, and sample the product. Historically, the lack of label information and data on these products has been a challenge for retailers. By leveraging the USDA’s Nutritional Database for Standard Reference (SR), we are excited to announce that Label Insight is now able to deliver nutrient and serving size information for any product with a standard Price Look-Up or PLU code. This new offering also enables retailers to expand attribution across these products, highlighting key standard and custom attributes such as “Organic”, “In-Season”, and “Dietitian’s Pick”.
What’s new in Label Insight onboarding? We've been working hard to improve our already best in class Onboarding platform that powers our Retail Health and Wellness Data solution. Our onboarding platform is an integral part of our solution for retailers and their Health and Wellness product data. We work closely with retailers to ensure that we engage and onboard product data for all of their suppliers. To date, our success rate is approximately 90%, meaning that on average with our retail partners, we manage to get 90% or more of their products onboarded. An accurate and up-to-date representation of a retailers assortments is critical to the success of an effective data driven health and wellness program. Below you can find some of the new features and challenges we've been working on recently to improve the process.
