Package Code Management Software

iDSnet is an Australian made package code management platform that has been helping some of Australia’s largest manufacturers improve product traceability since 1998. This started with a simple barcode design tool to manage label-printers within manufacturing facilities, driven by innovative manufacturing practices. Today’s iDSnet has been developed as a NoCode/LowCode platform. With Matthews’ drive for continuous improvement with in manufacturing, our package code management software iDSnet enables manufacturers to ensure the right code is on the right packaging level, whether human readable or barcode, for full traceability requirements to eliminate costly human errors that lead to rework or recall of product. iDSnet data insights provides real time production information for faster, better, more informed decisions real time.


"What really made the decision easy for us [when choosing Matthews] was the fact that they were proposing a solution using their tried and tested iDSnet software, whereas others needed to build us a customised solution" - Julia Blair, Remedy Kombucha

By integrating all of your coding, labelling and process equipment, such as inspection equipment, palletisers, or other supported devices, iDSnet delivers streamlined operations with quick changeovers, mitigating the risk of errors due to current manual processes.

Matthews’ iDSnet can be fully integrated into your manufacturing environment, this includes line-level equipment, externally controlled data interchanges or manually entered by operators. Seamlessly integratingwith existing ERP, SCADA and MES systems, iDSnet truly is the final piece of the puzzle for modern day manufacturing facilities to connect the production line to your enterprise business solutions. Our award-winning iDSnet software collects detailed data from your production line so you can see, interpret and communicate what’s really happening on the factory floor. With a complete view of production efficiency, downtime and quality metrics, you have actionable data to feed into your continuous improvement programs.


How does iDSnet work?

With industry standard open connectivity, iDSnet allows you to integrate your coding, labelling and validation into your existing ERP, WMS and SCADA systems to have truly centralised control.

By centralising the product database, work orders and the like, iDSnet ensures the correct code, such as a barcode, datecode or batchcode, is always placed on the correct product at the correct time and that the correct packaging or artwork is in use. Because all coding, labelling and other devices are networked back to a central database, product changes are achieved down an entire production line with only one simple operator action. It removes manual processes, which generally are prone to error from your end-to-end traceability, digitising them within your manufacturing environment. By capturing all of this relevant information: ingredients, batch numbers, order numbers, etc. it allows your products to run seamlessly through the supply chain.
