Solutions deployed by Milner Browne
The ChallengeThe Packaging Hub Ireland is a creative and innovative packaging, supply chain and logistics supplier. The company is renowned for providing solutions to customers across the globe who wish to concentrate on their core activities without having to worry about the production of their packaged goods. Established in 2009, the company has witnessed a sustained period of impressive growth and now boosts facilities in the Ireland, the UK, USA, China and the Czech Republic. This period of growth quickly saw the company outgrow its former business management systems. In addition, The Packaging Hub was struggling to manage its data without having a centralised location to store key business intelligence. Company directors decided to search for a solution that would bring together its facilities across three different continents and store data in one centralised system.
By streamlining our inventory with SAP Business One we've made significant savings - and we've only been using the solution for around a year! SAP Business One has helped grow the business significantly in the last 12 months - in terms of revenue and the markets we now trade in.
How we helped
1solution across several countries
When Milner Browne met company directors they discovered how SAP Business One is an ideal situation to manage different entities from a single solution. The implementation of a SAP Business One wholesale and distribution solution would provide the platform for The Packaging Hub to meet its international growth opportunities.
The introduction of SAP Business One aligned company activities and provided a central, reliable source of information. Powerful reporting tools prevented staff from working into the evening to generate reports or from having to use several spreadsheets to compile key company metrics.
