Firstan Ltd. Selects Radius Solutions’ PECAS Vision
SHEFFIELD, England—Radius Solutions Ltd., an integrated business information management provider for the packaging and printing industry, announced that Firstan, a folding carton producer, has chosen to implement the PECAS Vision ERP/MIS software as their standard solution.
After moving into a new facility in Huntingdon, Cambridgeshire, Firstan’s management looked to replace its existing business management software system with an industry-specific ERP/MIS solution that would fit the processes of its organization and provide the required management information to assist with its current growth plans. These plans include cementing its position as a paperboard packaging supplier to the pharmaceutical and food industries.
Key considerations when choosing the new system were improvements in costing, planning/scheduling, estimating, and pricing. The ability to generate and provide access to management information was also an important factor in selecting a new system.
Andrew Hartwig, managing director at Firstan, described his vision, “We have taken this opportunity to make the new factory a state-of-the-art facility that will increase output, quality, and efficiency while, at the same time, lowering our environmental impact. Making these changes, we also decided to implement 21st century technology and systems. Along with a substantial investment in machinery, we looked for a solutions partner with a leading software system and complete focus on our industry.”
Firstan selected Radius Solutions as its long-term enterprise software applications partner. The partnership will provide Firstan with a single integrated software system to run its entire operation, which, according to the company, will allow improvements in efficiency, immediate access to business information, and improved response times to client inquiries.
