Essentra operates three sites in Ireland and the Glasnevin site recently undertook an extensive review of its production workflow requirements. Subsequently the Essentra project team undertook extensive research to determine the most suitable production workflow to meet the current needs of the business and with the flexibility to be adapted as the business needs evolve.
“We engaged Mediainc as part of our research and they met with us to understand our requirements. Shortly afterwards, Mediainc presented a proof of concept to us based on the Switch automation platform and demonstrated solutions to problems that we encounter every day. Support was a key factor for us to consider as part of our investment. We operate in a fast paced and complex manufacturing environment and we need to rely on our partners to quickly identify and solve issues that arise. Our project team included personnel from pre-press, print, management and I.T. and we all quickly realised the potential of the Switch automation platform. We had researched and received demonstrations from several other vendors but for us, Switch was the obvious choice. From a functionality and Return on Investment perspective, it was simply unbeatable”.
“Mediainc deployed the Switch solution which included on-site training and the creation of complex workflows to suit our production requirements. The training was excellent and within a couple of days we had a fully functional system. With Mediainc’s help, we are constantly tweaking the system to deliver even greater benefits to the business and the flexibility of Switch means there isn’t anything haven’t been able to achieve. The support we receive from Mediainc is exceptional and they are fantastic to work with”.
