Laura Grondey, who is Managing Director of Siemer Verpackung GmbH together with her sister Maren Grondey, takes us behind the scenes of our work together:
“Since taking over the business in its fourth generation in 2011, we have developed a clear vision for the further development of Siemer Verpackung as a medium-sized, owner-managed company. The realignment of our internal prepress plays a central role in this, in order to increase efficiency, security and capacities there and to establish a stable digital process.
A thorough analysis of the prepress processes clearly showed that there was a need for action. After creating new competencies through personnel expansion, we researched innovative, technical solutions for the digital prepress process.
Our first contact with HYBRID Software at PRO.PACKAGING 2022 immediately piqued our interest. Their focus on efficiency and value creation in digital prepress made HYBRID the perfect partner for us in the technical renovation of our prepress. In addition to the innovative technologies, HYBRID’s many years of expertise quickly convinced us.
A logical, first measure to realize our goals was the introduction of PACKZ as a “Swiss army knife” for prepress. This software solution proved to be a key factor in significantly improving automation and efficiency in our prepress operations and laying the foundations for the following steps. Thanks to PACKZ’s intuitive features and flexibility, we were able to successfully renovate our established but aging ways of working and adapt them to the current demands of the market.
We have recognized that a successful future also requires comprehensive digitalization. Therefore, further measures in the area of our digitalization are already being planned. We want to optimize our processes so that we can respond more flexibly, quickly and effectively to the needs of our customers.”
