ARI Packaging is a contract packager and contract manufacturer operating in four locations throughout the US. They provide a range of services including re-packaging, bundling, bagging, and display building for large Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) customers, specializing in food and beverage market.
Nestlé Purina Petcare (NPPC) is a large CPG which focuses on petcare consumer products. Customer demand for NPPC’s products has been rapidly growing. When they reached a point where they could no longer handle the volume of orders at their own manufacturing plants, NPPC chose to partner with ARI to help meet their customer demand.
When ARI and NPPC began their relationship, ARI was using Nulogy to run their operations and NPPC was using their own ERP system. Using two individual systems to work together posed challenges
· Manual data entry processes were time-consuming for both ARI and NPPC
· Manual processes limited NPPC’s ability to immediately turnaround product from ARI to their customers
· Inability to share real-time data
ARI Packaging is committed to integrating with our customers because it allows us to be strategic in the way we approach our relationships. When we are integrated, it gives our customers the visibility they need to support their customers in a confident manner. It also allows us to overtime operate more efficiently and keep our costs as low as possible for our customers.GARY MCCULLOUGH, CEO
