Packaging ERP & MES Systems

Manufacturing Software that Drives Operational Excellence

Whether your manufacturing operation involves recycling plastic clamshell containers, top down bottles, pails, pots, pharmaceutical blister packs, flexible pouches or plastic trays the packaging sector provides solutions that deliver a wide range of benefits including durability, safety, security, hygiene, lightweight and design freedom.

However, the very fact that the industry requires a wide variety of raw material and processing techniques results in a unique set of manufacturing necessities, including detailed lot traceability, accurate part labeling and production flexibility.

Designed for the packaging sector in mind, IQMS’ ERP and MES systems enable manufacturers to manage lot and serial traceability, UPC labeling, pack outs and Bills of Material (BOM) for dies and inks so that you increase accuracy, improve quality and deliver operational excellence at a lower cost.

With IQMS you get a single environment for all your ERP, manufacturing, MES and supply chain requirements delivered through one set of tables in an embedded Oracle database. All transactions and events are updated instantly throughout the entire system in real-time. As one, comprehensive and unified ERP system, EnterpriseIQ eliminates the need for multiple, disparate systems and the associated costs of integration, support and maintenance.
