At PrintPack India 2017, Packaging South Asia met Manish Bhaskar, director and business head, Asia, of Arden Software. Arden provides integrated software solutions to the packaging industry across the world. Its range of solutions allow packaging companies to control design and manufacturing process from idea to shelf.
Bhaskar said, “Arden Software delivers specific solutions that help businesses cope better with their competition. The solutions range from custom design and workflow management enterprise solutions to ongoing support and maintenance services for the packaging industry. Our solutions help businesses reshape their pre- and post-production processes while allowing for innovation, efficiency, productivity and profitability .
Arden has developed a program for the design of paper-based packaging, pointof-sale displays and production tooling called Impact. It offers automated features for structural design, product development and virtual 3D sampling which includes a set of fully interactive drawing tools as well as a wide range of reusable design components, enabling faster creation of custom drawings.
Arden’s business wide project searching and sharing software, Enterprise, can automatically manage the queuing, distribution and deployment of Impact projects enabling users to search, share and reuse designs thereby avoiding the need to reproduce projects, and save time and money. Arden has also designed WEBcnx, the workflow automation software for project lifecycle management that solves the problems associated with poor communication in the packaging supply chain, which often result in avoidable delays due to inadequately defined instructions.
