How Does End-to-End Process Automation Reduce Time-to-Market?


Centurion operates 5 manufacturing facilities and 10 distribution centers around the world. The challenge was how to produce and deliver necessary products efficiently while adhering to stringent government product labeling requirements. With various disparate legacy systems in place, they needed to:

  • Produce labels dynamically and eliminate manual processes
  • Decrease product labeling production time
  • Reduce costs and error rates
  • Integrate legacy systems to simplify audit process management
  • Increase reliability and accessibility of records by converting paper records to digital archives
  • Ensure compliance with global marking regulations


  • Evaluated Centurion’s current systems and processes
  • Identified areas for automation and process simplification
  • Architected a comprehensive Enterprise Content Management (ECM) strategy to meet Centurion’s current and future needs
  • Implemented SAP® Document Presentment by OpenText to automate label production
  • Integrated disparate legacy systems to eliminate manual processes
  • Optimized the systems to improve efficiency and productivity and reduce costs
  • Simplified oversight and audit process management by creating a digital document retention system
