Firstan Continues to Expand Packaging Success with EFI Radius

(PresseBox) (Dronfield, Derbyshire (UK, ) The UK's leading independent manufacturer of pharmaceutical healthcare and specialist food packaging is reaping the benefits garnered from its installation of EFI(TM) Radius ERP software which is tailored specifically for the packaging industry. Firstan Quality Packaging ( produces more than 500 million cartons each year at its Cambridge premises, meeting and exceeding industry quality standards. Its requirement for a comprehensive enterprise solution led the company to select Radius, allowing them to automate business processes, gain visibility into operations right across the business, and offering the flexibility to grow alongside the company in its plans for future growth.

Firstan moved from an in-house bespoke MIS system, which had been built during a 20-year period, to Radius as the company's continued growth demanded greater functionality, integrated data handling capabilities and the potential for JDF compliance. Because EFI's robust solution is designed specifically for the packaging industry, it simplifies management tasks and handles advanced analysis and reporting requirements seamlessly and efficiently.

Firstan was able to ensure that specific capabilities could be developed and incorporated into Radius, all tailored and tested thoroughly for proficient management of all processes from incoming jobs through to final despatch. "As well as managing all our business information requirements on a day-to-day basis, the installation of this ERP system has been an important element in forward investment plans," comments Tom Donaghey, IT Systems Manager at Firstan. "The company's staff worked closely with EFI's specialist team throughout to ensure a successful transition to Radius, with the result that we have generated greater efficiencies through achieving tighter margins across the business."
