At this year’s Achema, Syntegon is presenting its redesigned Service Agreement packages for effective asset and maintenance management at fixed costs. The varied agreements help customers from the pharmaceuticals and food industries to reduce production risks, gain predictability over service costs and simplify complex processes, enabling them to focus on their core business.

“This way, our customers benefit from a readily available service that ensures the long-term productivity, safety and sustainability of their processes while meeting their respective production and plant requirements,” explains Johan Nilsson, member of the Executive Board and responsible for Service & Digital Solutions at Syntegon.

Syntegon continues to offer services such as inspection, maintenance, spare parts management and training individually. But companies can now choose from seven different package options as well, all of which come at a fixed price. With each service level, customers receive support from basic service, including inspection and remote assistance, to guarantee production performance for their machines. Based on their maintenance strategy, customers can decide which level best meets their specific needs to reach maintenance targets.

Syntegon on strengthening customer loyalty

“As an independent business unit, our service now lays the foundation for even closer cooperation with our customers,” Nilsson stresses. “The more they know about the performance and condition of their equipment, the better we can support them – and optimize our range of machines and services in the long term.” Contract Fulfilment Managers are contributing to this goal, liaising between the customer and Syntegon’s services. Thanks to their Service Agreement expertise, these colleagues ensure smooth implementation of the selected packages. They also provide information on upcoming measures within the Service Agreements and are on hand to advise throughout the contractual period. Customers can contact Syntegon at any time using a helpline for additional support.

Service Agreements offer much more than fixed and predefined prices – continuous support also reduces the risk of unscheduled downtimes. It can even help avoid complete shutdowns thanks to regular maintenance done by service technicians.

Syntegon offers support at all Service Agreement levels, from maintenance planning and spare parts management to operator training and digital plant optimization, the company’s service experts are at the customer’s side around the globe. “Versatile service packages deliver maximum flexibility with little time investment and risk,” Nilsson says. “Instead of selecting individual services for their requirements one by one, customers now receive exactly the products and services they need.”

Real-time data transparency with Synexio

One essential aspect of the Service Agreements is Synexio, a new cloud-based software solution for the real-time acquisition, evaluation and visualization of equipment and production data. Syntegon will release three consecutive versions of Synexio, with the entry-level package ‘Monitor’ to be launched at the Achema. The solution creates transparency across various KPIs to help companies sustainably improve their production.

Today, companies from multiple industries are already using the Service Agreements- together with Syntegon, numerous pharmaceutical and food manufacturers have identified the level that suits them best. In addition to leaner maintenance, they benefit from more efficient processes, which positively impact competitiveness, customer loyalty and product quality.

The Covid-19 pandemic led to the country-wide lockdown on 25 March 2020. It will be two years tomorrow as I write this. What have we learned in this time? Maybe the meaning of resilience since small companies like us have had to rely on our resources and the forbearance of our employees as we have struggled to produce our trade platforms.

The print and packaging industries have been fortunate, although the commercial printing industry is still to recover. We have learned more about the digital transformation that affects commercial printing and packaging. Ultimately digital will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future.

Web analytics show that we now have readership in North America and Europe amongst the 90 countries where our five platforms reach. Our traffic which more than doubled in 2020, has at times gone up by another 50% in 2021. And advertising which had fallen to pieces in 2020 and 2021, has started its return since January 2022.

As the economy approaches real growth with unevenness and shortages a given, we are looking forward to the PrintPack India exhibition in Greater Noida. We are again appointed to produce the Show Daily on all five days of the show from 26 to 30 May 2022.

It is the right time to support our high-impact reporting and authoritative and technical information with some of the best correspondents in the industry. Readers can power Packaging South Asia’s balanced industry journalism and help sustain us by subscribing.
