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.

The impact, resilience, and growth of responsible packaging in a wide region are daily chronicled by Packaging South Asia.

A multi-channel B2B publication and digital platform such as Packaging South Asia is always aware of the prospect of new beginnings and renewal. Its 16-year-old print monthly, based in New Delhi, India has demonstrated its commitment to progress and growth. The Indian and Asian packaging industries have shown resilience in the face of ongoing challenges over the past three years.

As we present our publishing plan for 2023, India’s real GDP growth for the financial year ending 31 March 2023 will reach 6.3%. Packaging industry growth has exceeded GDP growth even when allowing for inflation in the past three years.

The capacity for flexible film manufacturing in India increased by 33% over the past three years. With orders in place, we expect another 33% capacity addition from 2023 to 2025. Capacities in monocartons, corrugation, aseptic liquid packaging, and labels have grown similarly. The numbers are positive for most of the economies in the region – our platform increasingly reaches and influences these.

Even given the disruptions of supply chains, raw material prices, and the challenge of responsible and sustainable packaging, packaging in all its creative forms and purposes has significant headroom to grow in India and Asia. Our context and coverage engulf the entire packaging supply chain – from concept to shelf and further – to waste collection and recycling. We target brand owners, product managers, raw material suppliers, packaging designers and converters, and recyclers.

In an admittedly fragmented and textured terrain, this is the right time to plan your participation and marketing support communication – in our impactful and highly targeted business platform.
