Flint Group Packaging, a supplier of consumables to the global print and packaging industry, seeks to focus on the ease of doing business and order efficiency for its customers with its Webshop platform. 

Underlining the company’s vision of a connected future, the online store shows the company’s range of inks and coatings available to order 24/7 in just a few clicks. The purpose is to provide customers with more versatility, flexibility, and performance in managing the procurement of consumables.

Designed to keep pace with the speed of today’s packaging market, the Webshop enables simple, fast ordering and reordering of inks and coatings.

Thomas Gray, vice-president, strategy & market intelligence at Flint Group Packaging, explains the significance, “With our dedicated online Webshop, we are giving our customers an additional digital channel that simplifies order processing. It’s no secret that the pressure is on for packaging converters to deliver when it comes to agility and on-time order fulfillment. We understand the importance of our customers’ procurement processes and personnel; therefore, we’ve designed Webshop to complement and support the detailed administration involved in procurement. Our aim was to develop a tool to assist with inventory management; particularly when it comes to repeat orders. 

Webshop allows the company to deliver a higher level of service and support to customers. “As well as being open for ordering 24/7, Webshop is available in multiple languages, so no matter where our customers are, we speak your language. Add in precise real-time order tracking and paperless invoicing, and the benefits are clear. Webshop goes beyond your standard online store, it’s a bespoke experience that is built around our packaging customers’ needs, not ours,” Gray said.

Thomas concludes: “The concept of a web store isn’t new, but the way we have built this is led by the needs of our customers; an approach which is core to Flint Group’s strategy. For printers, time is precious and every moment counts. By taking the ordering process and translating it into a slick, intuitive online eCommerce platform, we’re enabling procurement to happen in a fraction of the time and on our customers’ terms. We are delighted with what we have created, and the feedback we have had from our customers so far has been extremely positive.” 

In 2024, we are looking at full recovery and growth-led investment in Indian printing

Indian Printer and Publisher founded in 1979 is the oldest B2B trade publication in the multi-platform and multi-channel IPPGroup. It created the category of privately owned B2B print magazines in the country. And by its diversification in packaging, (Packaging South Asia), food processing and packaging (IndiFoodBev) and health and medical supply chain and packaging (HealthTekPak), and its community activities in training, research, and conferences (Ipp Services, Training and Research) the organization continues to create platforms that demonstrate the need for quality information, data, technology insights and events.

India is a large and tough terrain and while its book publishing and commercial printing industry have recovered and are increasingly embracing digital print, the Indian newspaper industry continues to recover its credibility and circulation. The signage industry is also recovering and new technologies and audiences such as digital 3D additive printing, digital textiles, and industrial printing are coming onto our pages. Diversification is a fact of life for our readers and like them, we will also have to adapt with agility to keep up with their business and technical information needs.

India is one of the fastest growing economies in nominal and real terms – in a region poised for the highest change in year to year expenditure in printing equipment and consumables. Our 2024 media kit is ready, and it is the right time to take stock – to emphasize your visibility and relevance to your customers and turn potential markets into conversations.
