Banner for How Johnson & Johnson’s Labeling Team Scaled their Quality Review Process

Date: July, 2022 | CategoryCustomers Author: Gabriella Naguib


For over 20 years, GlobalVision has been helping Johnson & Johnson teams globally through the power of automation technology. Enabling automated quality checks throughout their packaging workflows is the backbone that has made this partnership so fruitful and successful. From the Consumer Health division to their internal Medical Device giant Ethicon, the nature of J&J’s regulated products makes the need for error-free packaging components an absolute necessity.

We recently had the pleasure of speaking with Sarita Ranade, Business Process Lead at Ethicon, to discuss how she and her team at Ethicon have benefited since implementing the GlobalVision Web (GVW) software. GVW is one of GlobalVision’s ironclad web-based products, which allows for swift and accurate file inspections throughout the packaging development process.

Sarita’s department, Worldwide Labeling, had set out to start bringing some parts of their complex labeling process in-house. With so many moving parts, the need for automation and streamlining became imminent. 

The Challenge: Inefficient and Tedious Manual Review Tasks 

Before GVW, this labeling group within Ethicon, which also extends to parts of J&J’s Depuy Synthes and BioSense Webster divisions, was burdened with the tedious task of manual comparisons between all file revisions. They now benefit mainly from the two core GVW Modules: Text Inspection, a letter-for-letter comparison between two files within seconds, and Graphics Inspection, allowing them to overlay two documents and highlight all changes detected.

Given the complexities of their process, the GVW software offers a level of simplicity when it comes to proofreading: discard intended changes between versions and flag critical or non-intended changes for further investigation. 

When it comes to medical device labeling, each and every word must be carefully considered for any typos, insertions, deletions, location issues, and event fonts and formats must remain compliant. Sarita worked closely with GlobalVision’s Susan Proper to ensure that GVW was the right choice for her team, ensuring that the software detected all changes and that the usability met their needs.

Ethicon’s samples were sent over for testing, and the Labeling team underwent a trial period with hands-on training, which ultimately informed their decision to move forward with GVW. Speed, accessibility, and user-friendliness played a significant role as the team found GVW to be fast, easy to navigate, and easily accessible through their web browser.

The Solution: Quicker Inspections and Decades of Trusted Accuracy 

Since going live in February of 2021, the team has noted two major ways in which their workflow has improved: they are able to save considerable amounts of time by running the files for a quick inspection in GVW, and they have acquired somewhat of an insurance, allowing them to focus on pressing day-to-day tasks with peace of mind that their latest working version is free of any potential errors. One of their favorite features is the Zoning tool, which allows you to inspect specific text regions while ignoring the rest of the document. 

This partnership has allowed for decades of successfully streamlined and efficient workflows and has resulted in consistently accurate packaging and labeling, eliminating the risk of content and artwork errors that can otherwise result in detrimental company downfalls. GlobalVision’s trusted line of quality inspection products has proven to be a key component in J&J’s quality mandate, and GlobalVision aims to maintain a strong partnership for years to come as it continues to offer the most cutting-edge innovations in automated quality control technology.

New Release GVW 3.10 Banner

Date: March, 2022 | CategoryCompany Author: Hana Trokic


Introducing GVW 3.10, GlobalVision’s latest version of the original cloud-based inspection platform. Built with the purpose of enhancing the overall user experience when navigating and reporting differences, GVW brings a new way of interpreting results efficiently.

With one of the most enhanced releases yet, GVW 3.10 promises to improve the users’ proofreading workflow without sacrificing accuracy or speed.

What’s new?

Text Inspection Embedded Difference List

GVW 3.10 upgraded the difference list format when running a Text Inspection. Users can now scroll through and see all differences within a file without having to launch a separate window.

Note: You can collapse the difference list to display one difference at a time or expand it to display six differences. You can also drag it to resize it.

GVW 3.10 also includes Difference grouping, which has the ability to merge duplicate differences into one difference, as well as Difference filtering which has the ability to select difference types appearing in the report. Additionally, while reviewing the differences users can now assign levels and comments to multiple differences simultaneously.


Upgraded Graphics Profiles

GVW 3.10 gives users a more in-depth way of selecting inspection profiles when running a Graphics Inspection allowing for a more customizable inspection.

New advanced settings have been added to increase accuracy by allowing the user to choose between low and maximum sensitivity.


Resolution and Performance

Speed has been enhanced, improving the time it takes to run Graphics Inspections. GVW 3.10 gives users the ability to adjust the resolution of uploaded files (200, 300, 400, and 600 DPI) for Graphics, Barcode, and Braille.


Further New Additions

GVW 3.10 release brings users more exciting enhancements such as:

Auto-Zoom levels:

When navigating through differences, the zoom level that focuses on the individual differences selected can be adjusted.

QuickSwitcher Update :

Saving and retrieving pre-inspection settings and markups is possible when using the QuickSwitcher, i.e when you zone your entire document and you hit inspect then use the QuickSwitcher to go back and make adjustments, you will not lose your zones.

Inspection status:

Inspection status is displayed when running inspections.

Verify 2021.3 New Release

Date: October 2021 | Category: Company | Author: Fouad Noujaim


Introducing Verify 2021.3, the latest version of GlobalVision’s web-based inspection application. Built to deliver a more intuitive user experience, Verify optimizes inspections by catching deviations at every revision point.

This release includes new improvements and features that enable connectivity to the platform and enhance the flexibility of performing accurate Text and Graphics inspections by expanding the tools available to the user in order to better prepare their files.

New features include Marquee Zoning, Shifted Graphics, and the ability to generate a public API key for a seamless integration process.


A new way of performing partial inspections: Marquee Zoning

The new and much anticipated Marquee Zone is here. The Marquee tool gives users the ability to select text independently from the document’s reading order, by highlighting text using a free-hand selection.

Verify 2021.3 New Release display

The update itself comes into Verify as an enhancement to the existing Zoning tool. The newly rebranded Zoning tool is now known as Text Select and has the ability to select text following the existing reading order on the document. The benefit of the tool is that it will automatically find the corresponding text on your new document. However, if the text is impossible to select, you can now use Marquee Zoning to choose the text you need to inspect.

Text Select:

Shifted Graphics – Match artwork on different pages

Another update is the introduction of the ‘Shifted Graphics’ feature which now allows for inspection of files with different layouts. This enhancement provides users with the ability to inspect images that are not located in the same positions on the Source and New File.

 
Verify 2021.3 New Release screenshot

The ‘Shifted Graphics’ works by placing an anchor point on the Source file indicating a point of reference on the artwork being inspected and placing another anchor point on the New file to automatically create a match.

This new feature allows the graphic zone to be moved with accuracy even if the Artwork is on an entirely separate page.

Exponential Zoom and Spacebar Panning

Additional features have been added to simplify the use of Text and Graphics zoning while prepping a file for inspection.

Exponential Zoom

The ‘+’ and ‘–’ zoom buttons now change the zoom level exponentially making it easier to zoom in and out of the document. This can be tied with the Shifted Graphics feature allowing the user to position their anchor point much more accurately.

Verify 2021.3 - How to use.

Space Activated Pan

Clicking the spacebar while a prep tool is selected now activates the panning tool. Now, instead of clicking out of a tool in order to move the file around, you can simply use the spacebar to switch between cursors.

Public APIs

Additionally, this release features much-anticipated integration capabilities.

Verify 2021.3 Public API Setting tool

Our APIs allow customers to seamlessly connect Verify with their Artwork Management Systems and other platforms, allowing them to run quality inspections directly within the asset development process. This allows for a secure transition between products to further streamline user workflows.

Access your API key in My Account > Settings > API Key.

Once the API key is generated, it can be pasted into the third-party app.

For the full list of features, check out the release notes for 2021.3.

The latest release from GlobalVision gives desktop users the ability to run faster and more accurate inspections with enhanced Text & Spelling Inspection features. Along with optimized processing speeds and improved usability, Version 5.5 introduces a new add-on tool for the inspection of tobacco packaging.

Top New Features:

Less Pixelation when Zooming In

GlobalVision 5.5 also comes with improvements to the clarity of text displayed during Text and Spelling inspections. The area of a file to which users zoom in is now rasterized at a higher resolution, reducing the pixelation of the image in the Master/Sample panel.

Text Inspection Software Allows 800% Zoom with High Resolution to See Details

Updated Difference List for Text & Spelling

Pop-up menus now help users navigate differences by clearly displaying levels and comments during inspections. The handling of Spelling dictionaries has also been addressed to improve the accuracy of punctuation errors detected during Text Inspection.

Health Warning Inspection Tool for Tobacco Packaging

With health-information and warning requirements becoming more and more regulated, tobacco companies are taking greater steps to ensure they meet high industry standards when it comes to packaging. Released with version 5.5, the latest innovation from GlobalVision was developed to facilitate the inspection of health warnings and artwork on tobacco labels and cartons.

GlobalVision Text and Spelling Inspection found 6 repeats in the file

The Compulsory Packaging Information (CPI) Extractor comes as an add-on to GlobalVision’s flagship Print Inspection system. Designed for use at each stage in the production process, it automatically compares cartons or press sheets to approved files to flag differences and ensures compliance with industry standards before going to print. This allows tobacco manufacturers to get their products to market faster by double-verifying health warnings and artwork in one complete inspection cycle.

 

Additional Features:

  • Generate comprehensive inspection reports to record and review all detected differences.
  • Stay on top of compliance standards by keeping track of each inspection with e-signatures for enhanced security.
  • Get color-coded grades of 1D and 2D barcodes in seconds without the need for a scanner with Barcode Inspection mode.

GlobalVision 5.5 is now available. To upgrade, contact sales.

File comparison using GlobalVision softwares

The just-released GlobalVision Desktop 5.3 and GlobalVision Web 3.3 each bring exciting, new features to the forefront. The end result, for both deployment options, is greater overall ease of use, though.

Top new GlobalVision Desktop features include:

  • Text Inspection tweaks to insertions/ deletions, which are now easier to locate, along with the new ability to search for text when creating zones and resynching differences.
  • New user-friendly keyboard shortcuts are listed in a readily accessible in-app guide.

Top new GlobalVision Web features include:

  • A face-lifted Graphics Inspection Mode, complete with adjustable Flash, Master, and Sample panels.
  • Mozilla Firefox support.

Improved Insertion and Deletion Detection

GlobalVision Desktop users can now make use of a new search function. As the text is being selected to create a “zone,” possible matches in the opposite panel now pop up. Much the same mechanic lets users match text when resynching differences after the inspection has been run.

Also following inspections: Detected insertions and deletions get highlighted in red in only the corresponding panel, letting users easily determine the difference’s exact location.

GlobalVision Text Inspection Comparing two documents

The Wait for the (Bigger) Flash Is Over

GlobalVision Web users running graphics inspections can now make the Flash panel as big as they want. The panel, which flashes between the Master and Sample in rapid succession to highlight differences, can be resized or popped out as a separate browser window. Meanwhile, the Master and Sample panels can be toggled off altogether, allowing for a fully customizable inspection view.

More of Color Inspection Mode

Color Inspection Mode, which innovatively confirms the accuracy of Pantone, LAB, CMYK, and RGB values at select points, has also been updated. A streamlined, new look to the user interface now accompanies an additional inspection “action.” Point to Point inspections can now be run, where, instead of having GlobalVision Desktop automatically compare the same point on the Sample to the one on the Master, users specifically pick points on each file to compare to each other.

GlobalVision Color Inspection Tool

Other Updates:

  • Sleeker designs coupled with general user-interface improvements.
  • U.S. Postal Service 4-State barcode support in GlobalVision Desktop Barcode Inspection.
  • Available French, German, and Spanish translations of GlobalVision Desktop itself.
  • Simpler processes to regain access to locked-out accounts in both versions.

Before, locked-out GlobalVision Desktop and Web users had to contact administrators to log back in. Now, they can re-activate their accounts on their own through an email notification (Web) or by simply waiting until their system’s pre-determined lock-out period ends to try logging in again (Desktop). The forgotten-password retrieval system has also been revamped in GlobalVision Desktop, which emails a temporary password to users upon request. Hassle-free.

Ultimately, it’s one of many additional features designed to simplify the lives of GlobalVision users. For a complete list, read the release notes for GlobalVision Desktop 5.3 and GlobalVision Web 3.3.
