GlobalVision

Automated proofreading for packaging quality control

About GlobalVision

GlobalVision is an automated quality control platform that proofreads, checks, inspects, and verifies text, graphic, barcode, Braille, and spelling, to eliminate printed errors on packaging before products go to market.

Available for access via the Web or server, or installation on Mac or PC, GlobalVision enables the inspection, comparison and verification of any type of content including text, graphics, print, barcodes, Braille, and spelling. The platform - which can be integrated into the packaging workflows of consumers goods companies, food & beverage producers, printing firms, pharmaceutical companies, and more - helps customers to increase proofreading accuracy, efficiency and speed, by checking artwork in seconds rather than hours or days to ensure that packaging is printed error-free.

Key benefits of GlobalVision

  • Detect any unintended changes in text as it moves from copy document to print with GlobalVision's Text Inspection, which compares two documents to ensure the accuracy of text, artwork, and documents.

  • Check barcode quality without printing each one out, with GlobalVision's Barcode Inspection Tool, which inspects barcodes directly in a PDF file.

  • Inspect print, labels, proofs, cartons, and nested press sheets in their printed formats to detect errors, with GlobalVision's offline print sample inspection.

  • Automate packaging quality control to expedite artwork approvals across all SKUs and get products to market faster.

  • Digitally detect and verify Braille with GlobalVision's Braille Inspection which translates it into a chosen language and then displays any differences from an approved content PDF.

    We have had a great experience with the software and it has been an asset to our inspection and our customer satisfaction.

    Pros

    Software is able to provide an in depth inspection of the color, text and positioning of the incoming labels to ensure they match our customer's requirements and standards.

    Cons

    It works as advertised and no complaints. Of course any improvement in the speed of the software would be a bonus.

    Improving Efficiency in Labelling Artwork Creation

    The demo environment that we've been using is much faster and easier to use than the old web-based version we currently have on our Macs. Support for issues with slow downs and the server not working have been fixed usually in less than a day's time, which is great since we have a high volume of artwork most of the time. It's been very easy dealing with just about everyone from GlobalVision and even extending our temporary license for the demo environment has been effortless due to highly responsive customer service folks. I couldn't imagine not using the software at this point as it has made such a huge positive impact on our department.

    Pros

    My team creates artwork for a lot of packaging inserts, which tend to be text heavy. ProofWare allows us to more easily detect style/formatting errors prior to being sent to ur proofreading department and save time on revisions. It also easily detects if content is missing in packing insert artwork when compared to the source Word document. We've even found it useful and time saving when used to compare vendor proofs to submitted artwork as it reduces the need to print out large files on our plotters for light table comparisons.

    Cons

    We're still using the demo environment as our Systems team finalizes the steps necessary for the upgrade rollout. We've been using the demo environment with real files to test out and learn the software in actual work activities. The 2 things I've struggled with are probably very easy to address. First, I can't figure out how to create my own group of settings/preferences so that I don't have to enter all my parameters every time I need to do a comparison. This feature should be more intuitive for a user to figure out where they set their preferences and a button says "name and save these criteria". Second, once I've completed a comparison, I can't figure out how to return to the home page and run a different comparison using different documents. Again, it's probably an easy fix, but it's not intuitive for the user to figure out.

    Essential Quality Tool

    Reviewed on 2020/03/05

    Pros

    This software has been an essential tool in my daily quality control work at a translation company. I use it for two main reasons: to detect updates to files submitted to us from clients and to detect updates between different internal file iterations. The text inspection and graphic inspection are amazing features that make my job so much easier to conduct. I couldn't do my job well without this software!

    Cons

    I have experienced a few drawbacks, namely that the software can come up with hundreds of false positives where there are no true changes. Sometimes, it is difficult to sort through those. In addition, the image comparison tool has been limiting in its use because it cannot run if the two documents are different page counts. Also, it takes up a lot of memory space, so I cannot run the image inspection a majority of the times that I would like to.

    We use the QC platform for both 2D barcode verification and verify press startup samples vs the graphics files. If the wrong printing plate was mounted we would catch it as we have no vision systems on our narrow web presses.

    Pros

    The software is simple enough for both operators and QC technicians to use. Decodeabiltiy of barcodes is very accurate and so if print verification vs graphics file.

    Cons

    You cannot lock out all the settings. Easy for someone to change critical parameters and render the system not operable.
