Simplified ERP Software Built for the Packaging Industry

Reduce manual touchpoints and drive revenue growth with an integrated ERP solution tailored to fit mid-market packaging manufacturers. Advantzware ERP includes a core set of modules designed to automate key workflows, improve operational efficiency, and maximize employee productivity. With a centralized database and seamless integration to optional modules like eCommerce, CRM, and scheduling, our solution is flexible enough to manage all aspects of your manufacturing operations.

Improve sales and profitability by streamlining your estimating process from customer request to quotation. Robust and detailed enough for any size packaging plant, our estimating module is intuitively designed to help both new and seasoned estimators work smarter and bid sharper. It is user-friendly, flexible, and comprehensive with detailed cost analysis for any size packaging plant.

Elevate your procurement team’s performance with an automated streamlined purchasing process that provides visibility into the business impact across a wide range of product types. Our purchasing module helps you eliminate data entry errors, reduce labor costs, reduce overrun costs, lower material costs, and improve production lead times while helping to manage the entire buying process.

Eliminate costly manual touchpoints and save valuable time through our streamlined order processing system, which supports custom packaging, stock boxes, distribution and just-in-time warehousing. Our solution allows you to convert estimates into quotes, then place them directly into an order, immediately creating the job file and finished goods items while also checking credit limits. Simultaneously, raw materials required are reserved, inventory balances updated, the job is moved to the schedule board and purchase orders for paperboard, tooling and other items are sent to the vendor.

Gain the advantage of comprehensive, real-time cost tracking and analysis so unexpected surprises can be dealt with immediately before they become a larger problem. Track actual production costs of in-progress jobs and compare costs against estimates and past performance. Our job costing module provides business intelligence for the modern packaging organization, providing visibility through dozens of standard reports that show machine backlogs, variances, efficiencies, work in process values, material usage and more whereby data can be analyzed by product line, product category, job number, machine and charge code to isolate unprofitable operations.

Accurately track, plan, and manage assets through dynamic inventory management that provides increased efficiency and cost control while actively reducing manual touchpoints. Advantzware seamlessly integrates Raw Materials to Work in Process to Finished Goods with perpetual inventory control by Warehouse, Bin Location, Job Number, Purchase Order and Tag Number. Inventory managers can view the transaction history for any item including warehouse receipts, issues, commitments, transfers, adjustments and physical count

Visualize business performance at a glance with a full suite of financial reports for packaging manufacturers that provide real-time actionable information. Our software provides the functionality you need to integrate and automate financial operations for better cost management and more accurate billing. As customer orders are shipped, inventory is reduced, and customer invoices are automatically created which update the customer balances, credit limits and the general ledger in real-time. Vendor invoices for inventory receipts from purchase orders will transfer the quantity received minus any returns and import the purchase cost, which validates the vendor invoice. Once the vendor invoice is posted, the system simultaneously updates the vendor’s balances and general ledger accounts then load the dollars into accounts payables and closes the purchase order.

Harness the power of your data through an integrated suite of reporting and dashboards. Our reporting and visual analytics platform includes pre-built management dashboards and plant personnel dashboards, combined with Advantzware Open Analytics (AOA) for actionable insights and real-time analytics across your manufacturing organization. This module allows you to create custom reports or designate standard reports in your preferred format, schedule them to run at a specific time of day and email them automatically to a group of people you designate. Use this module to create dynamic dashboards of information in graphical format. Reports can be output and sent in standard formats such as PDF, Excel, CSV or XML.
