“We are getting exuberant response at Printpack India 2015,” says Vinod Nawab, director of Param Software. “Several reputed customers, including foreign customers, looking for MIS workflow solutions have visited our stand. Our first deal at the event is Pragati Graphics which opted for the label version of the ERP solution.” Param bagged six new customers at the event. At the mega event, the Indore-based company was offering live demos of the software.

“The time you take to respond to your customers’ orders decides how serious you are with your business,” says Nawab. “But there are many pain areas which need to be addressed intelligently to minimize lead time. With customizable features and different modules to choose from, Param ERP is an intelligent solution for wastage control, increased efficiency, timely delivery of jobs and much more.”

On being asked about wastage control, Nawab says that if one is aware of the figures, it can be controlled. “Machines integrated with an ERP solution can give the exact difference between estimated wastage and actual wastage. When the difference is high, senior management gets an alert in their mail who in turn can do a follow-up to avoid a similar circumstance in future. This brings discipline in the work space and thus adds value to the company in the long run,” says Nawab.

Param has more than 100 clients across the country including a large number of packaging printers and converters. Param’s major packaging clients in Western India are Can pac Trends, Art-O-Print and Creative Printers of Ahmedabad, and Rainbow and Crystal at Mumbai. In Bengaluru it has Brindavan, Sonika Graphics and Adroit Offset, while in Kolkata the big customers are Nextgen, Avail Printers and Sneh Comprint.

Packaging South Asia — resilient, growing and impactful — daily, monthly — always responsive

The multi-channel B2B in print and digital 17-year-old platform matches the industry’s growth trajectory. The Indian, South Asian, Southeast Asian, and Middle East packaging industries are looking beyond the resilience of the past three years. They are resuming capacity expansion and diversification, with high technology and automation in new plants and projects.

As we present our 2024 publishing plan, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2024 will exceed 6%. The packaging industry growth will match the GDP growth in volume terms and surpass it by at least 3% in terms of nominal growth allowing for price inflation in energy, raw materials, consumables, and capital equipment.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 45% over the past four years. With orders in place, we expect another 20% capacity addition in 2024 and 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels are grown similarly. As the consumption story returns over the next six months, we expect demand to return and exceed the growth trajectory of previous years. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – and as shown by our analytics, our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

For responsible and sustainable packaging, with its attendant regulations and compliances, there is significant headroom to grow in India and the region. Our coverage includes the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and to waste collection, sorting, and recycling.

We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers. This is a large and complex canvas – the only thing that can work is your agile thinking and innovation together with our continuous learning and persistence.

The coming year looks to be an up year in this region, and this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing communication – in our rich and highly targeted business platform with human resources on the ground. Share your thoughts and plans and to inspire and mobilize our editorial and advertising teams!
