Today’s increasingly competitive global economy requires businesses to make decisions faster than ever. Businesses need instant insight into the status of their people and processes. But manual, paper-based processes undermine decision-making. Paper makes it difficult for businesses to make smart decisions about their operations and their working capital. Manual processes also are costly and inefficient, create headaches for front-line staff, introduce compliance and security risks, and stymie collaboration with trading partners.

If you’re like most corrugated packaging manufacturers, your company operates multiple plants where each plant uses a different enterprise resource planning (ERP) system. This arrangement of multiple ERP systems could be costing you valuable time and money and promoting inefficiencies such as manual data entry. Upgrading to a single ERP system designed for multi-plant operations can help you solve these issues and more.

It’s become abundantly clear that the cloud is no longer the future— but the new normal. Enterprises rely on cloud computing for web-based meetings, email, file sharing, and more every day to reduce costs and administrative burdens while enhancing productivity.
With the wealth of benefits to be gained by moving to the cloud—including speed of deployment, cost-efficiencies, and easy scaling—it’s no wonder the shift toward all things virtual has been so pervasive and swift. What’s more, as the cloud has matured, the potential drawbacks that once made enterprises hesitant to make the move are disappearing. Security is now robust, application integration happens with ease, and reliability is a given, not a question mark.
So now that the cloud has become not just viable, but essential, to stay competitive in a rapidly changing world, it’s time to explore how the cloud can significantly improve your contact center operations and guest experiences. This paper will provide one compelling r
"Lean" is defined as a process to improve manufacturing and service operations, reduce waste, improve quality and drive down cost. While many packaging companies have embraced a number of Lean Manufacturing concepts, many have yet to fully realize the benefits of a fully-integrated Lean environment. Leveraging an ERP system that embraces "Lean" principles and incorporates industry specific best practices can facilitate and support the process. In this white paper, learn how lean manufacturing can apply to printing and packaging, and how an ERP system fits into the process.
Consumers worldwide continue to adopt and use technology in their shopping experience.
Faced with rising customer expectations and increasing competitive pressures, retailers
now are prioritizing in-store innovation. Many retailers have adopted multichannel
implementations, in which mobile, web, and in-store shopping are enabled but not delivered
consistently to the customer. The next step in this evolution is an omnichannel strategy, now
being deployed by some retailers, which presents a consistent shopping experience across
mobile, web, and in-store channels. Omnichannel also enables retailers to integrate back-end
infrastructure technologies (e.g., servers, databases, etc.) and cloud-based services (e.g., loyalty
programs, personalized recommendations, inventory management, etc.) to improve many
aspects of store and enterprise operations.
An omnichannel strategy relies on several core and supporting technologies. The key factors in
evaluating any omnichannel-enabling solution includ

Agenda automation software eliminates manual tasks associated with creating, distributing, and publishing agendas, reduces the prep time (by as much as 50% or more) and associated costs of meetings while introducing a flexibility that makes tight deadlines easier to manage.
The impact is far reaching, from improved transparency to freeing up staff time to work on other priorities. It not only pays for itself in paper savings, it brings money back into the budget—from $300 to $1000 per meeting, depending on the size of the organization.
Learn more about how easy it can be to automate your meeting agendas, and what you can get back as a result.

As the number and severity of cyberattacks continue to grow with no end in sight, cybersecurity teams are implementing new tools and processes to combat these emerging threats. However, the oneoverriding requirement for meeting this challenge is improved speed. Whether it’s speed of detection, speed of remediation or other processes that now need to be completed faster, the ability to do things quickly is key to effective cybersecurity.
The reason why speed is essential is simple: As the dwell time for malware
increases, the lateral spread of an attack broadens, the number of potentially breached files expands, and the difficulty in remediating the threat increases. And the stealthy nature of many of the newer threats makes finding them faster?before they become harder to detect?a critical focus in reducing the impact of an intrusion. These requirements make it essential that security operations centers (SOCs) can complete their activities
far more quickly, both now and moving forwa
