Delhi-NCR based Finsys is a leading ERP solution provider to the printing and packaging industry. Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) is a management software designed to ease and manage businesses and also automate many back office functions such as technology, service and human resources. The company serves all sub parts such as flexible packaging, corrugation, paper bags, stationary and lamitubes.

“We started in the pre-Windows and -smartphone era. We serve clients offering complete integration across their departments, right from their basic needs to the final bar code entry while dispatching a shipment,” says Sangeet Kumar Gupta, principal advisor of Finsys Infotech. “Right now, the raw material and machinery costs are the same; the sale price may differ depending upon the convertor but the difference is marginal. The major difference lies in efficiency, which is a major area of concern for every convertor and it differs from one convertor to the other. Let’s say, one duplex folding carton manufacturer incurs 10% wastage during the production process. In such a case, if he needs to use 10,000 sheets for his job, he’ll have to procure 11,000 sheets to finish his job. That is where ERP comes into the picture. An ERP software allows to reduce wastages at every level, improving the production rates and thereby paving the way for reduced wastage, which is an effective way to augment profits.”

ERP solutions also help to monitor machine performance. Identifying machine-related issues helps eliminate the losses that are being incurred. Gupta further adds, “The younger generation understands the importance of having an ERP system installed at their facility unlike the older generation who would mostly restrict themselves to traditional ways of doing jobs. So, they would have a hard time finding customers ten years ago, but now the scenario is much better.”

The company has seen many competitors coming up in a span of over two decades only to eventually wither off. “We are a stable provider which has worked for years and with the list of successes under our belt, the number itself gives us a trajectory every month. We are also participating in various events in order to connect with customers. Looking at our solutions, they often compare our services with European majors in the industry; that is the standard of solutions that we provide to our customers,” Gupta says.

TGI Corrugation Packaging Limited, a company situated at Sriperumbudur in Chennai was such company that implemented ERP throughout its plant. Prem Industries in Ghaziabad, Uttar Pradesh is a similar success story. The company went on to integrate the location of their stores as well. This resulted in obtaining proper data of every reel, every shipment including its packaging and sorting on the user’s mobile phone. The solution turned out to be convenient for the customer and helped the company churn out profits in large numbers.

Finsys recently participated in Sino Corrugated South at China, which witnessed a turnout from more than a thousand manufacturers and consultants from India. A number of manufacturers competed with each other at the event on a common platform with new machines and software. “Personally, I felt very happy attending the event. I got an opportunity to meet many existing customers and managing directors of some big companies and even got a chance to share my views and opinions. Secondly, it was a good opportunity to meet potential customers, present our product and educate them on the importance of having an ERP,” says Gupta.

More recently, Finsys, as a part of the Label Manufacturers Association of India (LMAI) initiative, participated in a series of afforestation drives. On a particular day, every week, the company’s employees take to the streets to water plants and trees to save them from the scorching heat.

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!
