Analytics are now available in Lumi! Analytics provides more quantifiable, measurable insights about your packaging supply chain. You can read more about this release on our blog.

We're starting with three report types:

  • Invoices by spending category. This includes items, shipping, tooling, overs and unders, etc.
  • Shipments by location

Features:

  • Aggregate your data by month, quarter or year
  • Customize the date range
  • Drill down on a category by toggling it on or off

Today we’re announcing the Standardized Quality release — a set of features that raises the bar for quality standards across every factory in the Lumi Network. This release gives you the tools to identify and report quality issues. 

Your reports contribute directly to our quality monitoring systems, which helps improve manufacturer selection tools and overall reliability for all members of the Lumi platform! We're really excited about it and have written more in depth on the blog.

Proof Management

The proof approval workflow can now be managed entirely in your Lumi Dashboard. Here are some of the new features we launched today:

  • Monitor proof statuses
  • Approve or reject proofs
  • Track who approved proofs and when
  • View rejected proofs
  • Improvements to the proof page

Publications

We're also excited to launch Publications! Multi-page printing and binding capabilities help you create magazines, catalogs, booklets, and newspapers to bring your content offline.

We've found a lot of inspiration from Lumi users designing publications to provide product information, share new products, or just engage folks in their community.

Options span the gamut from full color digital printing, or with lithography for more accurate Pantone color-matching. From newsprint to glossy cover stock, the paper options are nearly endless.

Collateral is here! We're talking about paper — flat, folded, glued, in just about any size, construction style, and paper stock you can dream up. Use collateral to welcome customers to your community, promote a new product, or provide product instructions.

Print your collateral digitally in full color, or with lithography using Pantone matching. For a special touch, consider spot coatings, lamination, emboss, deboss, or foil stamping.

We've beta tested this collection for over a year, and now it's available in your Lumi supply chain across all geographic regions. Here are eight new collateral products to get your juices flowing.
