Absolute accuracy and flexibility in folding carton, flexible packaging, rigid box and label estimating. Cost control and comparisons for fixed and variable costs. Instant real-time view of production schedule and plant loading. Constraint control to ensure that all materials are ready for the job.

Solarsoft's ERP software for retail packaging operations, aVP (formerly Accelerate), provides comprehensive information and control of critical business processes from the initial sales inquiry through to design, estimating, and order management; from production scheduling and inventory management through to delivery and invoicing. With built-in support for shop floor data collection and supply chain integration, aVP increases top-line revenues and tracks fixed and variable costs to ensure that margins and mark-ups take full account of actual costs.

Proactive estimating handles complex product pricing and provides absolute accuracy and integration with leading CAD products:

  • Fast Quote Wizard for rapid estimate creation; ideal for customer service and remote sales personnel
  • Estimate different product types within one estimate; cartons, labels, rigid boxes, corrugated materials, flexible packaging, general print
  • Estimate activities in different plants and compare costs
  • Automatically determine production routing based on product type

Efficient scheduling, resource planning and plant workload balancing translates into faster response times and reduced make-ready times:

  • Graphical planning board, with 'drag-and-drop' capabilities and instant real-time view of the schedule including load vs. capacity
  • Manipulate machine line-ups using what-if scenarios, and access cost-of-change information
  • Create distribution and e-mail ready line-up reports instantly, and save time for the scheduler and production staff
  • Gain visibility into artwork approvals, board receipts, and die/plate availability to identify problems early in the process

Gain complete traceability with aVP, including precise Work-In-Progress (WIP) costing for added-value processes, and lot traceability from raw material through WIP to finished goods.
