    A Competitive Advantage in a Growing Market

    The consumer packaging market is global and growing as economies develop in countries around the world, and packaging has become more sophisticated as consumers become more affluent. However, two major issues are negatively impacting today’s packing manufacturers: the inflated prices of raw materials and energy. Epicor has the software solutions you need to manage growth and provide visibility into your business operations.

    • Streamline and efficiently manage your global supply chain, from raw materials to finished product.
    • Control critical business processes from initial sales inquiry, design, estimating and order processing to production, inventory control, delivery and invoicing.
    • Reduce the amount of material used in the production of packaging to meet changing customer requirements.
    • Increase revenues with real-time visibility of production, automatic like-job grouping, what-if scenario comparisons, and access to cost-of-change information.
    • Visibility into which end-markets, products and customer relationships are profitable.
    • Maximize production efficiency by scheduling jobs and sharing customer orders across all work centers, divisions and plants.

    “The true benefit of working with Epicor comes from their knowledge not only of their software, but their true understanding of the consumer packaging industry. They really understood our business, and all the features within the Epicor AVP software have helped us meet our goals and objectives as a company.”
    Christine Toutane, Office Manager, Great Northern Corp

    “Epicor overall solution provides the features and functionality that enables Menasha Packaging to continue to differentiate ourselves from our competitors, and provide operational consistency as we grow the company.”
    Bill Shepard, President, Menasha Packaging
