BrandQ Manager Training

The BrandQ program was created by the packaging supply chain for the packaging supply chain. BrandQ helps brand managers communicate expectations and requirements and then carefully monitor and measure these throughout their supply chain. Brand managers who take the BrandQ Manager training learn the language of quality control and print measurement and how to effectively communicate expectations with suppliers. They learn how to determine if suppliers can meet their expectations and how to best work with spot colors, among many other critical components. The program results in a vastly improved brand/supplier relationship.
