Delhi-based Kwality Offset has implemented FlexiBiz ERP to streamline and improve its business processes and comply with regulations as well as gain competitive advantage in the market and increase profits. Rajeev Chattwal of Kwality Offset said that the new ERP software has brought in a renewed emphasis on accountability across the organization. “All users and management are happy using the software as it is helping in seamless flow and availability of accurate information across all departments thereby ruling out the chance of missing out on any critical instructions and information,” Chattwal said.

Kwality Offset Printers specializes in the manufacture of wet glue and self-adhesive labels. When it was established in 1972, the company produced cartons and cups for the ice cream industry using a letterpress. A decade later it installed an offset press and entered the label printing business, producing beer labels. Since then the company has added flexo and digital technologies to its existing offset unit. And all the three technologies are currently being used at its Naraina plant, Delhi, to produce a wide range of labels to cater to various customer needs. The offset division of Kwality is powered by Roland and Heidelberg machines while the Flexo division has two 8-color Mark Andy performance series presses. In addition, its prepress unit has Kodak Flexcel Imager and Kodak Flexcel NX Laminator. The digital label unit – Kwality’s newest and youngest venture – is powered by a Xeikon 3030 Plus label press.

“With so many machines running on our shop-floors, producing different jobs every hour, traceability had become one of our major pain areas. To be able to trace a product’s origin, its path through the manufacturing process and its ultimate destination is a painstaking task if you have to do it manually. Today, with FlexiBiz we can retrieve information and drill down immediately to the level right from which materials, on which work-floor, with which machine, by whom and when the product was manufactured and to which client it was finally delivered. Our materials management and distribution, and the monitoring of quality have improved significantly with the implementation of the new ERP,” Chattwal said.

Speaking of benefits that FlexiBiz ERP can provide in short-run jobs, Chattwal said, “With the volume of short-run jobs increasing every day, managing artworks for multiple SKUs has become a tough job for everyone. For short-run jobs, it becomes indispensable to have a proper workflow management system that can help in plant audits as well as wastage control. We are happy that FlexiBiz is capable of delivering on all these parameters. The entire team at Kwality is happy with FlexiBiz for the way things are going for them.” Chattwal shared that very soon the company will also implement FlexiBiz’s additional modules including Plant Maintenance and CAPA.

Under the brand FlexiBiz, Kiran’s solution caters to the requirements of flexible packaging, labels, cartons, woven and non-woven bags manufacturers.

About partnering with Kiran Consultants, Chattwal said, “We wanted to work with a company that is capable of working together with us efficiently as a team to help our business run smoothly. For a ERP system to be really successful, that is very important – the ERP team must be open to provide any kind of support to its clients round the clock, and Kiran Consultants has really lived up to that.”
