Automating the Future: BioTef's Journey with CMARIX

BioTef, a frontrunner in the custom product labeling sector, joined hands with CMARIX to redefine their digital landscape and optimize their label printing operations. Aiming to serve a broad spectrum of clients with high-quality labeling solutions, BioTef envisioned a robust web application as the cornerstone of this initiative. CMARIX, renowned for its prowess in web design and development, emerged as the ideal collaborator for this ambitious endeavor. Together, they set out to develop a web application that not only expanded BioTef's market penetration but also delivered an unparalleled user experience.

BioTef's Quest to Overcome Labeling Challenges in the American Market

Supply Chain Disruptions

Inconsistent supply of labeling materials and delays in the supply chain can lead to operational inefficiencies.

Lack of Traceability and Quality Control

The absence of a unified system for tracking and managing labels can result in errors and recalls.

Labor Shortages

Inconsistent supply of labeling materials and delays in the supply chain can lead to operational inefficiencies.

Technical Debt from Mergers and Acquisitions

Companies that have gone through mergers or acquisitions often have disparate labeling systems, leading to inefficiencies.

Heavy Customization and Integration Issues

Over-customized systems can make it difficult to integrate new solutions or upgrades, leading to longer development times.

RFID Implementation

With mandates from big retailers like Walmart, the need for RFID labeling is increasing, requiring new infrastructure and technology.

Regulatory Compliance

Keeping up with the ever-changing regulations for product labeling in the USA can be a daunting task.

Environmental Concerns

The push for sustainable and eco-friendly labeling solutions is a growing concern in the industry.

Lack of Automation

Manual processes are prone to human error and are less efficient compared to automated solutions.

CMARIX & BioTef: A Blueprint for Success in Custom Product Labeling

Unified Supplier Network

A web-based interface was created for suppliers to access and print approved labels, enhancing traceability and reducing errors.


User-Centric Design

A user-centric approach was adopted to ensure the system met the needs of both BioTef and its diverse clientele.


Regulatory Compliance

A compliance module was included to ensure all labels meet the ever-changing regulations in the USA.


RFID Implementation

In line with industry trends, RFID labeling capabilities were incorporated into the system.


Automated Label Printing

To address labor shortages and human errors, an automated label printing feature was developed.


Technology Stack

The technology stack was carefully chosen to ensure scalability and performance. Given that CMARIX doesn't do Automation Testing, quality assurance was conducted through rigorous manual testing.


Agile Methodology

Given your role as an Agile Project Manager, CMARIX employed Agile methodologies to ensure flexibility and adaptability throughout the project lifecycle.


Strategic Planning

Given your role as an Agile Project Manager, CMARIX employed Agile methodologies to ensure flexibility and adaptability throughout the project lifecycle.

API-First Approach

An API-first approach was used to ensure seamless integration between the frontend and backend.

DevOps Integration

Continuous integration and deployment were implemented to ensure quick releases and updates.

Dynamic Label Designer

A feature-rich label designer was developed, allowing users to create and customize labels with ease.

User Dashboard

A comprehensive dashboard for tracking orders, approvals, and other key metrics.

Performance Tuning

Backend services were optimized for performance using Node's non-blocking I/O features.

Automated Workflow Engine

Developed an automated workflow engine for label approval and printing processes.

Data Analytics Module

Incorporated a data analytics module for real-time tracking of key performance indicators (KPIs).

Manual Testing

Rigorous manual testing was conducted to ensure the highest quality, as CMARIX does not engage in Automation Testing.

Microservices Architecture

Given the complexity of the project, a microservices architecture was adopted for better modularity and easier maintenance.

Role-Based Access Control (RBAC)

Implemented RBAC to ensure secure and restricted access to different modules.


Developed RESTful APIs for seamless data exchange between the frontend and backend.

Architecting BioTef's Digital Ecosystem: A CMARIX Case Study

System Architecture

The system was designed using a Microservices Architecture, which allows for modularity, scalability, and easier maintenance. Each microservice is responsible for a specific functionality, such as label design, order management, and analytics.

API Gateway

A centralized API Gateway was implemented to manage requests and route them to the appropriate microservices.

Database Sharding

To handle large volumes of data efficiently, database sharding techniques were employed.

Load Balancer

A load balancer was integrated to distribute incoming application or network traffic across multiple servers.

Frontend Architecture (Angular)

Component-Based Design

The frontend was developed using Angular's component-based architecture, allowing for reusability and easier maintenance.

State Management

NgRx was used for state management to handle the application's global state efficiently.

Lazy Loading

To improve page load times, Angular's lazy loading feature was implemented.

Backend Architecture (Node)

Event-Driven Architecture

Node's event-driven, non-blocking I/O model was leveraged for efficient handling of concurrent requests.


Custom middleware was developed for tasks like authentication, logging, and data validation.

Asynchronous Operations

Node's asynchronous capabilities were utilized for tasks that require non-blocking operations, such as file uploads and third-party API calls.
