Laura Foti, the Chief Marketing Officer at SpecRight, joins the Packaging Podcast Extravaganza Show to discuss the importance of data and specification management in the packaging industry. The conversation highlights the need for transparency and collaboration in sharing packaging data, especially in the context of sustainability regulations. The SpecRight network is introduced as a solution that allows suppliers to digitize and share data with their customers, creating a single source of truth for accurate and traceable information. The discussion also touches on the challenges of talent shortage and the role of technology in bridging the gap. The episode concludes with a mention of the newly launched SpecRight versus SpecWrong video, which illustrates the benefits of specification management.

  2. Transparency in sharing packaging data can lead to trust-building and stronger customer relationships.

  3. The SpecRight network allows customers to search for specifications across different suppliers, expanding their catalog of options.

  5. The SpecRight network accelerates innovation and collaboration across the packaging value chain.
