Based in Koramangala, the firm is an ISO 9001:2008 certified company and mainly caters to the pharmaceutical and garment segment. Currently, the firm converts around 16,000 sheets each day, though the type of machinery the print firm has, it can easily produce a capacity of 60,000 to 70,000 sheets, in an eight-hour shift. “Most of our jobs are Pantone-based, which requires cleaning of the press after each job, and hence the reduced number of printed sheets,” said DivakarRaj.
“Prior to the installation of ERP, we used to use more number of sheets to produce less finished cartons. The installation of ERP has helped us achieve maximum number of ups in a given sheet, by factoring all requirements of the jobs,” he concluded.
