Packaging Challenges

Overcoming packaging challenges with a worldwide sports trim manufacturer.

Pro-stretch manufactures trims and is a supplier to five of the largest sportswear companies in the world. One of the main challenges that was faced included packaging their products to ship to customers and we worked together to put a solution in place that reduced manual effort, improved productivity and reduced packing errors.

The Challenge

One of their main challenges was tracking and managing the manufacture, packaging and shipping of products from multiple Sales Orders from a customer, with each order potentially having hundreds of Sales Order Lines. This required a bespoke adaptation within their existing AscentERP application.

The Solution

Working closely with the manufacturing team at Pro-Stretch, our team of experts carefully designed a solution, which allowed packages to be created from across multiple Sales Order Lines from multiple open Sales Orders for any individual customer – all from one screen in their ERP application.

This then enabled the Pro-Stretch team to easily select the quantities for each of the package lines, and based on those, select from a standard set of pre-defined boxes which in turn, directed the packing teams on what to pack and in what type of box and quantity of boxes and can also be used to generate invoices for shipped products.

The successful implementation of this solution has been effective for Pro-Stretch to deliver against deadlines in a much more time efficient manner.
