Esko has announced it has entered a strategic partnership with Amtech Software to bring further efficiencies to its customers in the corrugated market.
The partnership is aimed to eliminate double data entry and enable further automation workflow for corrugated converters.
As part of the partnership both companies are now developing an integration between Esko’s ArtiosCAD, Automation Engine, WebCenter QuickStart for Corrugated solution and Amtech’s Encore ERP solution.
“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,” says Chris Miller, vice president, North America and APAC at Esko said in a statement.
“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.”
Esko says 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.
Amtech says its 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 optimising 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,” says 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.”
