Business application software company, Infor, has announced that the Saudi Printing and Packaging Company (SPPC) has implemented its ERP LN enterprise resource planning solution.

SPPC hopes that the Infor ERP LN will help the company improve operational excellence across its three major printing factories in Riyadh, Jeddah and Dammam and increase the visibility and accuracy of data in its supply chain. These three printing factories are responsible for printing popular Saudi newspapers and magazine titles, as well as flexible packaging and commercial labels. 

"With our heavy printing and packaging operations we required a solution that would integrate data across our major activities and plug in the holes in our old manual systems," said Saad Al Azwari, CEO of Saudi Printing and Packaging Company, Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

Infor's ERP LN software is designed to integrate data across SPPC's supply chain - from the raw materials to the completed printed product or label. This integration can aid SPCC's control over its supply chain and help improve accuracy.

"We chose Infor ERP LN as we found that taking into consideration operational effectiveness, costs and man power requirements, Infor and Comm-IT looks to be the best fit for us, said Noalur Rahim, SPPC IT support manager.

The Infor ERP LN is also designed to help SPPC improve visibility, traceability and connectivity within the sales, procurement and finance departments.

Once the software system is implemented, sales team members will be able to use it to automatically process orders and follow up on status as well as check inventory, location and lot control, instead of its previous manual system of telephone and email follow ups.

"We continue to improve our Middle East customers' operations by providing flexible solutions that enable them to be dynamic in their approach to the ever increasing customer demands in the region," said Paul Hammond, general manager, Infor Middle East. "Infor ERP LN will provide the Saudi Packaging and Printing Company with the required visibility into their supply chain and will support operational excellence across its major printing sites, which will in turn enable them to improve service levels to their large customer base in the Kingdom."
Comm-IT, Infor's channel partner, is working with Infor and SPPC to configure the ERP LN software to meet the requirements of printing operations as well as doing the system implementation and providing consultancy support and training.

"We are confident that Infor ERP LN will significantly contribute to SPPC's improvements in operations and revenue generation for many years," said Naushad Khalid, general manager, COMM-IT Middle East LLC. "As an increasing number of enterprises in the Middle East turn to Infor ERP LN, we have witnessed its benefits to reduce complexity, increase flexibility and internal visibility and control for the company." 

Infor currently provides business application software to over 70,000 customers,
