No Two SPEEDlabel®️ labels are the Same!

Running a business means juggling lots of moving parts. And running a bustling, busy fabrication shop means those parts are moving in multiple ways, creating multiple pieces, and keeping track of job specifications is job one. Errors slow down workflow, cost money in wasted time and materials, and mean the next step in the process […]

Found your Fabrication Niche? SPEEDlabel®️ can help!

At heart, no two companies are the same. They may appear similar on the surface but look deeper and unique qualities appear. Some businesses provide the foundational ingredients which others then craft into a final product. Some choose to work with specific materials or components while others are open to anything. But in fabrication, many […]

The Many Benefits of SPEEDlabel®️

Admit it, everyone loves shiny, fresh-from-the-box technology.

Just because the weather’s changing doesn’t mean things stop growing. For businesses, growth takes place all year round and adding new customers occurs almost round the clock.

A Fresh Look at SPEEDlabel® Features

Sometimes we get into the groove of things—or occasionally a rut—and don’t take time to appreciate the little details which make daily life possible. On the shop floor, orders need to come and go without pause. Materials arrive, fabrication takes place, then it’s time for final shipment to the installation site. But without tracking software […]

Introducing Synchronous Solutions

The countertop fabrication business is one of the more chaotic manufacturing processes to manage. Most manufacturing experts would be in agreement that it is probably THE most chaotic. There are so many variables to account for. Different types of material, every job is custom, machines that may not be working, employees that aren’t giving 100% […]

What’s on YOUR SPEEDlabel®?

Everyone has their own way of doing things. Sure, the overall process may be similar, but we all develop little hacks to personalize or streamline the final output.

Using all the bells and whistles of your SPEEDlabel® System

The more technology we have, especially all-in-one handheld devices like phones or tablets, the more options are at our fingertips. But are we using them properly…or at all? Statistics show that the average person has more than 80 apps on their phone but only uses 9 a day; 25% are only used once and then […]

Every business needs new customers, that much is (I hope!) obvious. But do you know what’s even MORE important? A strong, loyal base of returning customers who start to feel like partners on your company’s journey. Within manufacturing, positive relationships like these cause a domino effect of good things.

SPEEDlabel® New Customer Roundup

Ben Franklin once said that “Without continual growth and progress, such words as improvement, achievement, and success have no meaning.” You may have the best ideas, products, services, or solutions but true growth comes from partnering with new clients and customers.

Quality control is key with SPEEDlabel®

In manufacturing, it’s sometimes hard to step back from your busy workday process and evaluate—or reevaluate—your shop’s workflow as a whole. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it is a tried-and-true saying for a reason. But pausing to evaluate quality control and streamline steps can make everyone’s life a little easier. There’s less waste in […]

Managing accountability with SPEEDlabel®

We may think workplace accountability is business-speak for holding employees to shared company goals and standards. But it can also mean something much simpler on a day-to-day basis. When everyone understands a project, their role within it, and signs off as they’ve completed their portion, production keeps moving. Fluidity and accountability also reduce wasted time, […]

Life before SPEEDlabel®

Life can usually be summed up in three simple words: live and learn. Lived experience helps make all of the everyday tasks more efficient and less (if we’re honest) annoying. It’s true at home, school, and on the job. For countertop fabrication shops who are constantly juggling material, specs, piece counts, and project updates, life […]

SPEEDLABEL® – Why You Need It

Why Accent Countertops Depends on SPEEDlabel®
