Device and Consumable Systems
STANDING OUT FROM THE CROWD
It just keeps getting harder and harder to hold onto your customers. Barriers to entry are falling, Marketing channels have become fragmented and unpredictable, and to make matters worse, buyers continue to flock to ecommerce in record numbers.
At Jabil Packaging Solutions we believe the next wave of CPG differentiation will come in the form of durable delivery systems that leverage convenient and sustainable refill consumables. These new device and consumable system solutions will transform the user experience and drive market share gains for the pioneering brands that develop and launch them at scale.
GOOD FOR YOUR CONSUMERS
Enhanced Dispensing Experience
Well-designed dispensing systems with optimized product refills offer a superior delivery experience when compared with legacy CPG formats. By adding electromechanical elements, utilizing sensors, leveraging higher quality components, or simply adding weight to the right places, brands can create dispensing devices that are far more functional, hygienic and enjoyable to use.
Durable device and consumable product ecosystems enable tremendous reductions in primary packaging material. Because the refill doesn’t require the same level of packaging performance, brands can lower the plastics intensity or implement alternative materials with an improved sustainability profile.
Device & Refill systems solutions can be designed to offer improved aesthetics inside the home. Durable devices can leverage more premium materials and offer more choice in terms of color and shape when compared with single-use formats.
GOODS FOR YOUR BRAND
Ecosystem Lock-In for Enhanced Brand Loyalty
The sunk cost of a device and an improved dispensing experience create a powerful sense of brand loyalty with consumers. When done right, this razor-razorblade model can predictably drive repeat purchases and dramatically reduce consumer switching. No marketing campaign, product line extension or pricing tactic can compete when it comes to securing and growing product market share.
Brand Equity Improvements
Device & Refill system solutions improve the user experience, offer enhanced aesthetics and enable sustainability improvements. Brands that begin to offer compelling device-based products across their product lines will enjoy brand equity improvements as they prioritize the creation of products that consumers love.
Standing out is not a challenge for products that perform better, look better and offer an improved user experience. These premium device & refill product ecosystems allow CPG brands to effectively target and gain market-share with discerning consumers who will happily pursue the best possible user experience, often regardless of price.
