Label Printing and Converting Company Turns to Epicor for Increased Production Efficiency and Systems Integration
Epicor Software Corporation, a global leader in business software solutions for manufacturing, distribution, retail and services organizations, today announced that Artcraft Label Inc., a pressure-sensitive label printing and converting company, has chosen to replace its existing business software system with the Epicor AVP ERP solution.
With 150 years of combined printing experience, Artcraft Label is an ISO 9001 certified company. With the ability to produce labels for the pharmaceutical, health, beauty, food, beverage, spirits, and safety industries, Artcraft has the latest and most advanced Flexo and Digital printing equipment in the industry. Advanced printing techniques enable the production of labels that include fraud protection, digital coding, and UV encoding.
“Our old ERP software system wasn’t able to support the expansion of our business,” said Alain Paquette, CEO at Artcraft. “We needed a system that would help streamline our operations. Our legacy system kept information for finance, inventory and other departments separate. We wanted every department and every operation within the organization to talk to each other and have accurate, real-time information at their fingertips.”
After a formalized software evaluation process Artcraft selected Epicor AVP, as a system that scored over 90% on all their requirements. “Epicor, through its Solarsoft acquisition, has very strong industry expertise not just in label manufacturing but in the packaging manufacturing industry as a whole,” said Paquette. “We felt they would be a true partner, focused on the unique needs of our business. We’re excited to move forward with the project, as our ERP software is one of the key strategic enablers in our business.”
“We are pleased to provide Artcraft Label with a software solution to support the company now and in the future as it grows,” said Andy Armitage, vice president of operations, packaging systems division for Epicor. “The AVP solution will enable Artcraft Label to streamline operations, while providing access to strategic business information in real-time, enabling better decision making to drive success.”
