Jabil Packaging Solutions, a division of Jabil Inc., launched a connected packaging platform that enables Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies to offer its customers a compelling next-generation user experience that maximizes convenience and boosts brand loyalty.
The new platform reportedly combines sensors, connectivity and cloud technologies to eliminate reorder friction for consumer staples. Leveraging Jabil’s specialized services, differentiated capabilities and turnkey products for connected packaging innovation and scale, the platform positions the company as one of the only packaging solutions providers to offer connected packaging services across the entire value chain.
“Customers tell us they appreciate that Alexa can help ensure they never run out of the essential products they use every day,” said David Jackson, director, Alexa Smart Home, Amazon. “With Jabil’s new connected solution, more brands can now seamlessly integrate smart reordering into their devices, helping their customers reorder essentials automatically, or receive low inventory notifications, through convenient Alexa interactions.”
Connected packaging represents the next generation of CPG innovation and is widely expected to transform the industry over the next decade. To help brands leap to the forefront of these consumer trends, Jabil is also offering a suite of specialized services that accelerate new product introduction.
These services reportedly address early-stage ideation, prototype development, design for manufacturability, in-market user testing and the facilitation of a regional or global product launch and post-launch end-user support. Jabil is unique in the market as a solution provider able to coordinate and execute on all aspects of a connected packaging solution, from software to manufacturing, from concept to scale.
Jabil is well positioned to lead this movement with extensive technology capabilities and a deep history of packaging innovation. Connected packaging, particularly its enablement of auto-replenishment, provides CPG brands with a scalable response to both consumer and brand pain points felt across the evolving CPG landscape.
