New enterprise resources planning system for Atlas Converting’s worldwide operations

In collaboration with the Swedish based supplier, IFS Applications, Atlas Converting Equipment has implemented a group-wide

Enterprise Resources Planning (ERP) system that will embrace its operations in the UK, as well as in North America, India and China. This will provide a new and common platform from which the company can better serve its international customer base. “This has been a huge but essential change management project for the company to undertake and not merely to replace existing

IT systems,” explained Steve Darlington, chairman of the company and sponsor of the project. “It has involved a significant financial investment but has also taken more than 12 months of preparation, hard work and dedication by our internal project team, to whom we owe a sincere vote of thanks.” The aim of the project was to provide the business with a world class integrated ERP platform and the business processes which will enable Atlas to continually exceed its customers’ expectations. The new system provides a single source of data for all areas of the business that will help to improve the process of management and control of engineering changes. “A new CRM (customer

Metsä Board’s climate change transparency recognised with score of 100/100

Metsä Board has been identified as a Nordic leader for the quality of its climate change-related information, disclosed to investors and the global marketplace, by CDP, the international organisation that drives sustainable economies.

With a score of 100/100, the company has been awarded a position on the Nordic Disclosure Leadership Index (CDLI), in the Nordic edition of CDP’s annual global climate change report. Metsä Board has earned its position on the index by disclosing high quality carbon emissions and energy data through CDP’s climate change programme. The reported data has been independently assessed against CDP’s scoring methodology and marked out of 100. Those organisations graded within the top 10 per cent in the region constitute the CDLI. “Our strategy to combat climate change concentrates on three areas: increasing use of

bioenergy; improving resource and energy efficiency; and lightweighting our paperboards. Inclusion in the CDLI is welcome recognition that we are communicating our efforts successfully and transparently,” commented Mika Joukio, CEO of Metsä Board. “We gained a significant score of 100/100, improving on last year. It is also gratifying that it follows our award of a place on this year’s CDP Water A List.” Top scores submitted annually to CDP indicate a high level of transparency in the disclosure of climate change-related information, providing investors with a level of comfort to assess corporate accountability for changing market demands and emissions regulation. /

Avery Dennison launches new scan- to-order app for iOS

and Android devices At Labelexpo Europe 2015, Avery Dennison demonstrated the advantages of its new Scan- to-Order app, which makes the ordering process for its European customers easier and faster, enabling them to order simply by scanning a barcode or by entering the product/EAN code.

“Our new Scan-to-Order app is one of the easiest ways to place orders, return to unfinished orders, and review your recent orders submitted using your mobile device,” said Gernot Ritzdorf, vice president of sales at Avery Dennison Materials Group Europe. “It’s a great way to order when you’re on the move, with data going straight into Avery Dennison’s order execution system.” The new Scan-to-Order app is available in 13 languages and can now be downloaded via the Apple App Store and/or Google Play, and is compatible with both iOS and Android devices; customers only need to point their device at the EAN barcode on an Avery Dennison roll. This provides immediate access to a product, so users can enter the desired width, length, quantity and delivery date and it is possible to order multiple products before submitting the entire order. In addition to easier ordering with minimum data entry, the app also offers a streamlined process that allows the use of a mixture of barcode scans and manual code entry during a single order if required.

Unfinished orders are stored in a shopping cart for completion at a later stage and there is also a ‘recent orders’ option providing a review of the most recent orders submitted. Moreover, a comprehensive help file is included, with back-up provided by customer service representatives.
