Prairie State Group Becomes the First Flexible Packaging Printer in North America to Implement CERM
Prairie State Group, a leader in flexible packaging and custom printed labels, is the first flexible packaging company in North America to adopt CERM technology, an ERP system.
Implementing CERM has meant an entire upgrade of Prairie State Group’s computers and servers in addition to the new ERP system. For Prairie State Group customers, this means new quotes, production order processes, material inventory, and invoices are all captured through CERM.
“CERM gives PSG the ability to see real-time metrics, prompting PSG’s ability to make adjustments if needed so they can continue leading in cost-effective solutions,” said Esteban Garcia, NA business development manager, CERM.
For partners like Prairie State Group, CERM reportedly provides end-to-end solutions for the entire value chain. Prairie State Group can reportedly offer its customers a high-quality, convenient, and reliable experience with CERM.
Prairie State Group clients could find an overall improvement in production process efficiency, a decrease in redundancies, and better production times thanks to CERM. In addition, customers could also enjoy a more streamlined and convenient administration of shipping processes and invoicing. Faster, more accurate production updates from CSRs could be another benefit CERM’s implementation provides.
Customers could enjoy a faster throughput of sales orders, which is especially beneficial for repeat jobs. CERM reportedly provides a better follow-up of the proofing cycle, and automation and integration with Automation Engine from Esko. A machine counter system provides enhanced inventory accuracy of raw materials.
CERM also gives printing manufacturers greater insight into the profitability of different products. Master rolls converted to slit rolls are fully traceable and FedEx shipping integration is available. Printers also have access to the Novaflow ink dispenser system, along with Sage Accounting and QA tools.
