When packaging specialist Smurfit Kappa opened a new Czech office, the company chose to lift an established, successful SYSPRO batch mobile process that was in place within one of the UK divisions but quickly recognised that SYSPRO could offer greater levels of productivity when used to post real-time transactions directly from the shop floor.

Smurfit Kappa is one of the leading producers of paper-based packaging in the world with over 41,000 employees across 350 production sites in 32 countries. The company’s main business is corrugated packaging, but it has leading positions in several other markets including solid board and graphic board packaging. The company is headquartered in Dublin, in the Republic of Ireland.

“Now that we have mobile scanners installed, we have made the process of movements in stock much faster than it was before because we are able to send data to SYSPRO directly from the shop floor.”
