AICOMP , a global services provider for SAP ERP systems, is teaming up with Apriso and the SAP Industry Value Network (IVN) to deliver innovative solutions for packaging manufacturers. A recent deployment successfully integrates Apriso’s operations execution solution, or OES, with SAP ERP at multiple locations for one of the largest paper and packaging companies in the world.
Says Sascha Rauhe, president and managing director, AICOMP, "Packaging manufacturers need to quickly price and estimate jobs to capture and maintain business. By closing the loop between ERP and Apriso’s OES, our clients can provide estimating, costing, and pricing while the customer is still on the phone.”
Apriso FlexNet for Packaging Manufacturers seeks to improve quality and reduce waste, promoting Lean and Six Sigma best practices that span global operations. At the same, the solution addresses regulatory and recycling initiatives with complete traceability to operations. By improving visibility to global production and supplier processes with an interactive framework to optimize material throughput, packaging manufacturers maximize quality and operations performance, delivering the right product at the right time while minimizing waste throughout the production process.
