Aicomp and Esko strengthen partnership

Aicomp and Esko have teamed up to develop the best practice solutions for small and medium-sized packaging manufacturers to calculate prices and determine optimal production routes automatically

Aicomp Group, a provider of ERP systems for the packaging industry and Esko, an integrated software and hardware specialist, have teamed up to develop the best practice solutions for small and medium-sized packaging manufacturers to calculate prices and determine optimal production routes automatically.

The two companies have been working together on joint projects since 2004; however, they now have entered a certified partnership in which they will support each other proactively and focus on future developments.

‘As the leading provider of complex SAP variant configurations and SAP cloud solutions, Aicomp is specialized in ERP solutions specifically developed for the packaging industry,’ said  Jens Hennecke, CEO for EMEA with Aicomp. ‘With its market-leading solutions, Esko covers the entire packaging production process, from prepress to the finished products. The extremely successful cooperation in the last couple of years has proven that both our companies, our products and solutions complement each other in an ideal way which brings real added value to our customers. By strengthening our partnership, we will, among other things, be able to develop pre-configured, holistic and integrated best practice solutions which are flexible and, with a manageable, effort can be adapted to the individual customer requirements.’

‘In doing so, we want to enable the industry, in particular small and medium-sized companies, to optimize their processes - from packaging design to offer preparation and production,’ added Christopher Weber, regional software solutions manager for the DACH region at Esko. ‘The highlights of these end-to-end solutions include options for automatic price calculations, offer preparations and determination of the optimal production routing for each individual project.’

Depending on customer requirements, Esko’s best practice solutions will include products for packaging development, such as ArtiosCAD and WebCenter with the associated data management plus the approval processes and the prepress solutions ArtPro+ and Automation Engine. 

Aicomp contributes with its entire software portfolio, such as the SAP-ERP Add-on VC PowerPack for real-time calculation, the next generation of SAP-ERP, SAP S/4HANA as well as the SAP Sales Cloud from SAP C/4HANA portfolio for customer relationship management (CRM).

The strengthened integration of these products allows both companies to offer specialized technologies, in which, thanks to suitable interfaces, seamless data transfer works reliably.
