Cerm, a global software supplier for the label and packaging market, has extended its MIS with a complete and scalable end-to-end option for converters in the folding carton and rigid boxes space.
According to the company, Cerm’s MIS increases the productivity of packaging converters, thanks to its focus on the technical packaging production process and the specific interfaces to partners within this branch of the printing industry.
‘Ever since the very beginning of Cerm, we have developed our MIS to be industry-specific to meet the special demands of industrial printshops,’ said Geert Van Damme, managing director of Cerm. ‘We have a product-oriented approach since, unlike commercial print, the majority of sales orders in the packaging industry are recurrent in nature. And because the products and the production of labels and packaging are different, it’s only logical that this leads to two specialized technical solutions within the same software.’
The new Cerm packaging software provides detailed instructions to streamline every step of your packaging production. It contains, for example, additional software modules for complete support of the two packaging keystones: the shape design and the nested imposition, both integrated into Esko’s ArtiosCAD.
‘This new software is built on 35 years of MIS experience in the printing business, but now focused on sheet-fed and web packaging production,’ added Peter Heyse, head of production management and software development at Cerm. ‘Although this solution is in line with the successful labels software that Cerm has delivered for more than 20 years, this new concept for packaging opens a new window of opportunity for our labels and packaging users.’
