Share Article

Solarsoft Business Systems announced today that Progress Container & Display, a manufacturer of specialty and industrial corrugated products and displays, is utilizing Solarsoft's corrugated business software to track the Key Performance Indicators in their business.

Solarsoft Business Systems, a leading developer of software for the paperboard packaging industry worldwide, announced today that Progress Container & Display of Winder, GA, has upgraded their business software system to the latest version of Solarsoft’s business software for corrugated packaging manufacturers, HRMS Gen/2. Progress Container was founded in 1971 in Lilburn, GA, and has since experienced steady growth. A manufacturer of corrugated displays, specialty and industrial corrugated products, Progress is committed to providing outstanding service to their customers.

Solarsoft’s HRMS Gen/2 software includes a more versatile Purchase Order module, streamlined Order Entry and enhanced functionality for the estimating of assembled and unassembled sets. Building further on the functionality of the proven software, Gen/2 utilizes a role-based user home page with custom queries and configurable Key Performance Indicators. “We use the Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) on the home page to get an instant view of how our business is doing. We can see key information for Accounts Payables/Receivables, contribution dollars, daily and monthly sales information, and inventory valuation, all on one screen,” commented Andrew Perry, Controller at Progress Container & Display.

The HRMS Gen/2 software includes a comprehensive data dictionary and data extraction tools for easy creation of custom reports. “We’ve gained significant benefits with the Report Writer tool, and can now easily create reports in-house that would’ve previously required additional programming. We can also easily combine and roll-up data. For example, we can easily create sales reports for our customers with multiple locations, and roll-up the information from all locations into one report. This has been a great time-saver for us. We’ve also achieved efficiencies in our customer service department, with our customer service representatives being able to find answers to customer questions quicker,” concluded Perry.
