Ideagen’s software to be rolled out into Europe, North America and China
Multi Packaging Solutions, (MPS), a business of WestRock Company and a leader in value-added print and packaging solutions for the healthcare, branded consumer and multi-media markets, is investing in advanced software from Ideagen as it aims to standardise its quality management processes across all its 70 global sites.
Ideagen Q-Pulse will be rolled out across MPS’s healthcare packaging operations in North America and Europe in the initial phase of the project. In phase II, the Q-Pulse software will be extended to the company’s global branded packaging operations including several locations in China.
Denise Loughlin, Vice President Quality for Europe at MPS, said: “The project with Ideagen will reinforce MPS’s position as a truly global supply chain partner for its customers. The nature of our work means that we are a strategic partner to some of the leading pharmaceutical and healthcare organisations in the world. That can also be said for some of the largest consumer brands in the confectionery and spirits sectors across the globe.”
The Q-Pulse system will support MPS’s goal to offer its customers world class manufacturing quality standards. The software complements recent substantial investment in new printing presses and other ancillary equipment across the business.
“One of the fundamental objectives of this project is to become a truly global supply chain partner for our customers,” continued Denise. “Our investment in Q-Pulse’s global operating system provides our customers with further reassurance that our quality systems and processes are consistent throughout the world. This investment, complementing other existing quality related systems such as barcode or blank code readers on ﬁnishing equipment, will add an extra layer of security. This technology reinforces our continued commitment to product quality. Q-Pulse will offer a fully integrated, scalable, one-stop-shop for global quality management.”
