Mondi wins two SAP Quality Awards

Mondi’s continued progress


Global packaging and paper group Mondi has won two 2018 SAP Quality Awards, which were presented on 25 April, at an awards ceremony at the annual customer event, the SAP Forum in Linz, Austria. The winning projects are examples of Mondi’s continuing progress in digitalizing aspects of its business in order to provide faster, better and more transparent customer service.

Mondi took home a bronze award for the project ‘myMondi’, involving the design and implementation of a B2B eCommerce platform for customers of Mondi’s Uncoated Fine Paper business. The user-friendly website gives customers an additional way of interacting with Mondi that is secure and available 24/7. Users can log onto myMondi to research the Mondi paper portfolio, place orders, track deliveries and manage other account functions. Mondi has received positive feedback from customers using this digital service.

Mondi won a silver award for a project called ‘Insight – Corrugated Packaging Customer Excellence’. This project implemented a customer relationship management (CRM) system for Mondi’s Corrugated Packaging business. It further supports the customer’s experience, enhancing the communication flow with Mondi sales and service staff through speedy and transparent availability of current customer and market information.

Rudi Richter, managing director, SAP Austria said, “I’d like to congratulate Mondi and everyone involved in the successful implementation of these two projects. They demonstrate Mondi’s commitment among leading global companies to offering best-in-class customer service by taking advantage of the latest digital systems. Both Mondi and its customers will benefit.”

Rainer Steffl, chief information officer, Mondi added, “We believe that Mondi’s digital future goes beyond business as usual. These awarded software projects are just two examples to enable us to offer our customers superior service as well as make our own internal processes more efficient and transparent. We’re delighted they’ve been recognised by this year’s SAP Quality Awards.”

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!
