Noida-based Kiran Consultants provides ERP and CRM for efficient management of enquiry, production, waste and costing for packaging and label industries. The company started its operations with the development of standalone Foxpro-based applications, which have been running live since 1987 at many companies in Noida. “The days of running standalone financial and accounting packages are gone. Implementing ERP has become a necessity if you want to stay in competition. A good solution can help a company grow and earn better profits. Our clients have benefited and grown manifold after implementing our ERP solution,” says Suresh Bansal of Kiran Consultants.

Kiran Consultants participated at the recently concluded PackPlus 2016 event where it demonstrated its ERP – Flexibiz – and CRM solutions to visitors at its stand. According to Bansal, Flexbiz ERP provides for a low cost-of-ownership and fast return on investment solutions. With trends moving toward everything available and accessible on the move, in 2015 Kiran Consultants launched its mobile ERP application, hosted on the Cloud. The mobile ERP runs on iOS, Android, Blackberry, and Windows phones and tablets. “In 2016, we came up with a CRM application assisting the marketing personnel in pre-sales and post-sales activities,” adds Bansal.

“Although we are a very old company in the industry, we had never participated in any exhibition till now. This is our first exhibition after all these years. We’re also associated with Uflex and have helped them with our solutions. We consciously took so long to reach out to the industry in a big way because we already had a few dedicated clients; they still continue to be our esteemed clients. But now we think that we should reach out to more companies because our solutions can help them too,” says Bansal.

Speaking about the PackPlus exhibition, Bansal says, “I am glad that we participated at this event. We have received some serious enquiries and people are showing great interest in our products.”

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 growing 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.
