Solarsoft Business Systems, a leading provider of enterprise software and IT services to manufacturers worldwide, today announced that Solarsoft’s ERP system for folding carton manufacturers, Solarsoft aVP, has been selected by Proteus Packaging to replace its existing non-folding-carton-specific ERP system.

Proteus Packaging’s existing ERP system was lagging behind industry trends, namely lacking web-based interfaces and integration with leading CAD software for folding carton makers. Proteus Packaging also found it difficult to create multiple estimates simultaneously, and quickly export reportable information from the system for its customers. Solarsoft aVP addresses these issues and more.

With Solarsoft aVP, multiple scenarios can be created simultaneously on the same estimate. “Solarsoft gives us the ability to, within one specification, model different types of production to determine the most cost effective way to produce the customer’s folding carton,” says Paul Nowak, General Manager at Proteus Packaging. “With our previous software, we had to create separate specifications for each method. Solarsoft lets us do it all at once.”

Solarsoft aVP also connects design, graphics and structural teams to the system. “If our designers create a specific design, customer service can link to it and pull the data in, virtually eliminating the chances of mistakes from manually re-entering data multiple times,” says Nowak. “Solarsoft does this very well and allows us to report off the data so there’s no need to re-enter it on the report level.”

The user interface of Solarsoft aVP also impressed Proteus Packaging. “The screens in Solarsoft’s Windows-based environment are clean and intuitive to our processes as a folding carton manufacturer,” says Nowak. “Solarsoft really streamlines the process for us. Solarsoft truly has its finger on the pulse of the folding carton industry.”
