More efficient and streamlined contract document workflows
DS Smith, a UK manufacturer of sustainable packaging, is one of the world’s leading suppliers of corrugated packaging solutions. The company operates in more than 34 countries worldwide, with a number of almost 30,000 employees and with an extensive product portfolio that includes transit packaging, consumer packaging,
display and promotional packaging and customised protective packaging.
Locally, DS Smith Paper Zărnești is the largest packaging paper production unit in Romania, supplying almost half of the domestic market. The company uses 100% waste paper and cardboard as raw material.
DS Smith also has a recycling operations coordination centre in Bucharest, two recycling depots in Otopeni and Cluj-Napoca, two packaging plants in Ghimbav and Timisoara and three workplaces in Pitesti, Timisoara and Otopeni, employing a total of 650 people.
Due to the cumbersome work with a large number of contracts, making document workflows more efficient and streamlined has become one of DS Smith Paper Zărnești’s main priorities. The company therefore chose a document management solution from Konica Minolta, that allows them to easily manage documents from creation to approval and signature. After implementing, contract document workflows have been fully automated and simplified, and the efficiency and transparency of their management has increased significantly.
Our medium and long-term investment plan is to increase the efficiency of our paper production activity and at the same time minimise our impact on the environment through better resource management and lower carbon emissions. The need to streamline and simplify working with a large volume of documents led to our decision to implement an in-house document management solution that allows us to easily manage documents from creation to approval and signature. Following the implementation of Konica Minolta’s solution, workflows with contract documents have been fully automated and simplified, and the efficiency and transparency of their management has increased significantly.
