DID YOU KNOW?
UNIPAK provides one-stop paper-based packaging solutions that enhance the business value of any company across any industry, ranging from a display stand to a shipping tray or a creative promotional box.
WHAT’S THE INNOVATION?
UNIPAK has shifted from being simply a box producer to also becoming a packaging consultant working with its customers on optimized solutions for their packaging needs.
A new platform has been set in place to offer customers the ability to manage their packaging supply chain activities from the comfort of their desks. Through this platform, customers can benefit from consultancy on their packaging problems, receive solutions using the lasted 3D design tools, and place and track their orders online.
WHAT’S THE STORY BEHIND THE INNOVATION?
UNIPAK recognized that their customers’ businesses are evolving at a rapid pace. Their customers, with an ever-increasing exposure to the global market, have to meet international standards and regulations, and keep up with the global competition, while being time and cost efficient. As such, they are becoming more demanding and have complex packaging requirements.
For UNIPAK to stay ahead of the curve, they took the decision to keep on reinventing themselves to remain competitive in the market by becoming a one-stop shop for all paper- based packaging needs.
WHY IS IT IMPORTANT?
UNIPAK’s innovative business model is cost and time efficient on various levels. UNIPAK will act as a packaging consultant and packaging manufacturer, allowing customers to deal with one supplier for all their paper-based packaging needs.
In addition, customers no longer need to rely on UNIPAK sales team visits to place their orders or request packaging solutions, since they can easily use the online platform to do so thereby speeding up their business cycle and undertaking more transactions, with fewer paperwork and higher automated operation.
WHO IS BENIFITTING?
UNIPAK customers are benefiting from this business model as they reduce their supply chain complexity and improve their efficiencies, which is translated into financial benefits; in addition, the consumer is indirectly benefiting from the reduced environmental impact of packaging material.
