Pacific Packaging and Machinery, Inc., celebrating its 50th Anniversary in 2012, is a leader of rotary and inline liquid filling and capping equipment to the packing industry. The major challenge for Pacific was to move away from using spreadsheets to manage the designs of complex machines with thousands of parts. This practice has led to quality issues and delays in shipping.
Pacific was looking for a solution that would allow teams to collaborate while minimizing administrative errors associated with manual document control. Additionally, they needed assistance in migrating over 100k design documents and converting all of their Microsoft Excel-based bill of materials to the new system.
They selected Visidian Connect’s Enterprise edition in 2007. Within 2 months, the system went live and users embraced the system. Since then, Visidian Connect has been a constant source of benefits ranging from improved quality through the workflow process, quicker design speeds through content re-use, and better collaboration using a single source that the users trust.
Visidian improved our bottom line. We’ve used Visidian for several years now and we’re designing and manufacturing more machines with improved speed and accuracy without adding more resources.
Pete Carpino, President
Before we adopted Visidian Connect, we were too often late on deliveries and our warranty costs were high. Within a year, Visidian consolidated our product data and streamlined our operations. As a result, we can do more with our existing resources and our quality improved. We’ve reduced our design time by 33%, our deliveries are on time, and our warranty costs are currently at 0.
