From its beginnings in 1978, PPB has invested heavily to provide a wide range of plastic, paper, board and ACM materials and finishing services for the screen print, large format litho print and digital display markets as well as supplying sign makers and fabricators. Investing heavily in the growth of its business, PPB delivers 4500 orders per month from over 85,000 square feet of warehousing in Leeds and Dartford. On an average day it delivers over 100 tons of material, 95% of it on its own fleet of lorries.
SAP Business One and associated add-ons including Boyum and Codescan WMS provide a good functional fit for PPB’s specific business requirements both now and as it continues to grow. The CRM tool enables PPB to track and monitor opportunities and quotes, control is improved with the inbuilt authorisation and approvals system, while the scanning solution will allow better traceability of stock movements. The easy-to-use reporting tools, B1 Usability Pack and customisations in SAP will give PPB more control and self-sufficiency than is possible with the incumbent system.
Codestone’s attention to detail through a thorough, iterative selection process with detailed demonstrations differentiated it from the competition.
