Esko and Amtech join forces to bring increased efficiencies to corrugated converters

December 03, 2018

Esko, has announced it has entered into a strategic partnership with Amtech Software to bring increased efficiencies to its joint customers in the corrugated market. The companies are developing an integration between Esko’s ArtiosCAD, Automation Engine, WebCenter QuickStart for Corrugated solution, and Amtech’s Encore ERP solution to create bi-directional communication that eliminates double data entry and enables further downstream automation of the workflow for corrugated converters.

In an increasingly competitive marketplace, with growing demand for smaller lot sizes and faster time to market, corrugated converters will be able to benefit from this integration to streamline business processes, saving time and money while increasing their competitive advantage.

“The goal of this partnership is to facilitate advanced automation for corrugated converters. We are pleased to be joining forces with this industry leader for the benefit of our joint customers,” explains Chris Miller, Vice President, North America & APAC at Esko. “This is yet another example of how Esko continues to develop its Packaging Connected strategy, furthering Esko’s vision to connect its packaging supply chain solutions with leading hardware and software solutions in the packaging supply chain.”

ArtiosCAD is the world’s most popular structural design software for packaging converters. With dedicated tools for packaging professionals working in structural design, product development, and virtual prototyping and manufacturing, ArtiosCAD increases productivity throughout the packaging operation. Automation Engine is Esko’s workflow server. It automates prepress tasks, which speeds up the process, but also reduces the error rate and the need for operator intervention. WebCenter QuickStart for Corrugated is a design workflow management solution for corrugated converters. Based on Esko’s WebCenter, WebCenter QuickStart for Corrugated comes preloaded with proven workflows that increase a converter’s capacity to handle a greater number of design requests with the same head count. With just 5 days to get it up and running, companies begin reaping the benefits of efficient project management immediately.

Amtech’s Encore ERP solution is cloud-enabled, mobile and tablet ready, and it features real-time tracking of production and delivery, helping corrugated converters manage their plants with algorithmic trend detectors while optimizing the performance of their people by enabling a mobile workforce. Combined, these solutions create an operational powerhouse for corrugated converters of all sizes.

“This is a true partnership between industry leaders who will bring a stronger offering to their mutual customers by integrating two state-of-the-art solutions,” said Cosmo Denicola, President and Owner of Amtech Software. “Our combined expertise is second to none and will deliver great cost and time savings for our joint customers. We are looking forward to working with Esko in this important development project.”
