At the Printpack India 2019, which takes place from 1-6 February 2019, Kiran Consultants will be present in Hall 3, Stand B38, India Expo Centre and Mart in Greater Noida to meet target clientele from the labels and cartons segment.
Kiran Consultants will showcase its ERP and CRM software solutions for the print and packaging industry along with subscription-based CRM solution over cloud. These software help in plant audits, wastage control, lot traceability, inventory management, and marketing activities.
ERP is useful for manufacturers of flexible packaging, lamitubes, blown films, labels, retort pouches, and 3D pouches. The system platform is .NET as the front-end and Oracle 11g as backend. It runs on Cloud and can be accessed on mobile and tablets on the move. The software modules can be fully integrated with each other and cover all production processes like printing, lamination, slitting, rewinding, pouching, packing, and extrusion. It is suitable for units engaged in rotogravure printing, flexo printing, extruders, convertors and laminators.
Cloud CRM is the perfect solution for flexible packaging, lamitubes, cartons and labels, which covers all pre-sales and post-sales activities. The software is suitable for flexible packaging, pouches, sleeves, labels and carton manufacturing. It helps in job estimation of laminates based on material structure, ink and adhesive GSM, freight, insurance, export benefits, finance costs, cylinder amortization charges, and packing expenses. For carton job estimation, it calculates requirement of number of sheets/boards based on number of ups per sheet. For label job estimation, it computes square meter of paper required based on number of labels, labels size, gap and wastage percentage.
Gaurav Bansal, director – marketing, Kiran Consultants says, “Trade shows are very important for the growth of the company. These platforms build an ideal ground for the supplier and buyer to interact, where the buyer can see what the market can deliver while the supplier can better align himself to the buyer’s needs. Printpack 2019 is a very good platform for us.”
2023 promises an interesting ride for print in India
Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and
multi-channel IPPGroup. While the print and packaging industries have been resilient in the past 33 months since the pandemic lockdown of 25 March 2020, the commercial printing and newspaper industries have yet to recover their pre-Covid trajectory.
The fragmented commercial printing industry faces substantial challenges as does the newspaper industry.
While digital short-run printing and the signage industry seem to be recovering a bit faster, ultimately
their growth will also be moderated by the progress of the overall economy. On the other hand book
printing exports are doing well but they too face several supply-chain and logistics challenges.
The price of publication papers including newsprint has been high in the past year while availability is diminished by several mills shutting down their publication paper and newsprint machines in the past four years. Indian paper mills are also exporting many types of paper and have raised prices for Indian printers. To some extent, this has helped in the recovery of the digital printing industry with its on-demand short-run and low-wastage paradigm.
Ultimately digital print and other digital channels will help print grow in a country where we are still far behind in our paper and print consumption and where digital is a leapfrog technology that will only increase the demand for print in the foreseeable future. For instance, there is no alternative to a rise in textbook consumption but this segment will only reach normality in the next financial year beginning on 1 April 2023.
Thus while the new normal is a moving target and many commercial printers look to diversification, we believe that our target audiences may shift and change. Like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.
Our 2023 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock and reconnect with your potential markets and customers. Print is the glue for the growth of liberal education, new industry, and an emerging economy. We seek your participation in what promises to be an interesting ride.
