eProductivity Software (ePS) is a global company with vast experience in the corrugated industry and roots going back to the early 1980s with Corrugated Technologies Inc (CTI). ePS has developed a rich portfolio of corrugated software solutions over the years, partly due to acquisitions but fundamentally driven by the desire to create best-of-breed industry-specific solutions. The corrugated team at ePS is made up of individuals with experience in the corrugated and packaging markets; this gives ePS a holistic view of the systems required, as many of the team were users of solutions when working in the industry.
As organizations look to scale for growth, modernize their operations, and diversify their service offerings, ePS is a trusted technology partner supporting customers at every step. Our portfolio is designed to help corrugated businesses to meet their short and long-term goals, such as improving profitability, developing new revenue streams, and accelerating growth and expansion.
ePS solutions are designed to operate as standalone applications or as a part of a broader suite of products. Comprehensive suites are designed to meet the needs of businesses of various sizes and specializations, helping them realize the benefits of a modern integrated system with centralized functionality, reporting, and easy plug-and-play expansion. ePS offers industry-enabling point solutions that fully integrate with the native or generic MIS/ERP systems to help companies address specific workflow gaps or accelerate growth opportunities.
Solutions for Corrugated
Corrugated Suite (CorrSuite) is a fully integrated, scalable, flexible, browser-based end-to-end business and production management portfolio of solutions built specifically for the corrugated industry. It has been purposely developed to accommodate all plant configurations and build a resilient foundation that can adapt and grow as business needs evolve.
