CERM debuts new MIS software at Label Congress

10.02.21

The company has extended its MIS capabilities with a complete and scalable end-to-end solution for converters in the folding carton and rigid boxes business.

CERM, a worldwide supplier of MIS software for labels and packaging, has extended its MIS capabilities with a complete and scalable end-to-end solution for converters in the folding carton and rigid boxes business. Product experts were on-hand at Label Congress, from September 29-30, to discuss these new product options.

The CERM MIS increases the productivity of packaging converters, thanks to its focus on the technical packaging production process and the specific interfaces to partners within this branch of the printing industry. CERM specializes in software that enables swift but detailed MIS implementations for the packaging printers. The company targets a standardized workflow while allowing parameter configuration according to client requirements.

“Ever since the very beginning of CERM, we have developed our MIS to be industry-specific to meet the special demands of industrial printshops," says Geert Van Damme, managing director. "We have a product-oriented approach since, unlike commercial print, the majority of sales orders in the packaging industry are recurrent in nature. And because the products and the production of labels and packaging are different, it’s only logical that this leads to two specialized technical solutions within the same software.”

The new CERM packaging software provides detailed instructions to streamline every step of a converter's packaging production. It contains additional software modules for a complete support of the two packaging keystones: the shape design and the nested imposition, both seamlessly integrated to Esko’s ArtiosCAD.

“This new software is built on 35 years of MIS experience in the printing business but now focused on sheet-fed and web packaging production" adds Van Damme. "Although this solution is in line with the successful labels software that CERM delivers for more than 20 years, this new concept for packaging opens a new window of opportunity for our labels and packaging users.”
