Product Manager in Wilsonville, Oregon
Hey there, I’m Diana. I’m a product manager for a product line of printers used in the marking and coding of Ready-to-Eat food products. I know you’ve seen or looked for the date code on something recently, ‘enjoy by this date’, ‘best by this date’, ‘packaged on this date’....
Before starting this job, I didn’t give much thought to how that code was created. Turns out the traditional way of date coding is quite complex, considering the speed of a manufacturing line, the packaging material, and the ink to be used, in order to set and dry in time for the final steps in production. Configuring and maintaining these printers has become a bottleneck in many factories, and at a significant cost.
The Redimark product line was conceived to make marking and coding a simple process. Setup of a printer is possible in under 5 minutes, cloud management means production personnel are notified in real time when a line changeover is needed, and can make that change from a remote mobile location.
I’m currently managing the Redimark product strategy which includes a thermal inkjet printer, a mobile app, and a software cloud integration to make it possible to manage a date code printer from anywhere.
We’re in development on a next generation printer that will take these innovations and scale them to allow food and beverage manufacturers a high quality date coder, that reduces down time, without the high cost of setup and maintenance of a traditional printer.
I am passionate about disruptive innovation, in technology and business operations. My hobbies include travel and tinkering with the latest Internet of Things Smart Home Automation gadget. You can visit my company website with a click on the button above.
