Business Development Director
Arva Pack Pte Ltd
Arva Pack Pte
Ltd is a company which is keenly aware of how
shopping bags and packaging form an integral part
of a company's branding and positioning
in the marketplace. "Shopping bags and packaging
are walking billboards for market savvy companies
and could quite possibly be a forward-thinking
firm's best advertisement," said Peggy
Lee, Business Development Director of Arva Pack,
"Just take a short stroll down Singapore's
Orchard Road on any sunny Saturday afternoon to
see this marketing tool in all its glory."
in 1999, Arva Pack has a team of dedicated staff
who are committed to their clients' complete
packaging needs, through provision of unsurpassed
quality service, continuous innovations in packaging
concepts and world-sourced packaging products
at competitive prices. Its core business lies
in customization of paper bags, boxes and packaging.
The aim is to provide packaging solutions to help
customers to position and create a deep and lasting
impression in the marketplace, regionally and
products are manufactured by its network of principal
mills in Indonesia, Malaysia, China and Taiwan.
The mills are equipped with state-of-theart manufacturing
and printing technology.
in the corporate gifts and retail industries,
Arva Pack generally customizes paper bags and
boxes. The company also works with hotels and
companies in the food and beverage industry, whereby
Arva Pack customizes paper bags, take-away boxes,
pastry boxes, chocolate boxes, boxes for frozen
pizza (for sale in supermarkets), wine bags, wine
boxes and moon cake boxes.
In this business,
there is always a lot of document communication
between Arva Pack and customers, enquirers, warehouses
and factories. To do all this, Arva Pack has been
using an analogue copier, three inkjet printers,
one color printer, a scanner and a fax machine.
this equipment serves its purpose, the machines
do not function productively and smoothly,"
said Ms Lee, "The flatbed scanner is seldom
used and the copier is bulky with multiple sorter
bins. The ability to communicate smoothly, quickly
and efficiently is vital to Arva Pack, thus, there
was clearly a need to revamp our current operations."
goods to customers, invoices and delivery orders
need to be printed. Thus, having a printer with
high printing speed was essential to help to speed
up operations. However, the old printers'
speed were slow and consumed expensive print cartridges.
Also, the printers jammed frequently.
was an enquiry, Arva Pack had to photocopy and
then fax the catalogue over to the enquirer or
mail out the color catalogue. This was costly
to Arva Pack in terms of copying, faxing, mailing
as well as printing the color catalogue.
Arva Pack also
needed to fax the purchase orders, order confirmations,
and artwork to its local and overseas customers
as well as to its factories overseas, resulting
in high telephone bills. The fax machines faxed
at one page per minute resulting in a fax queue
– an unsatisfactory status quo.
so much time waiting for one document to go through
before we could fax out the next document."
said Karen Loi, Arva Pack Sales Coordinator. "The
fax machine was also costly in that it printed
out many unwanted faxes. All this resulted in
a waste of time and money," she said.
It became clear
that there was an urgent need for change at Arva
Pack and the company chose to implement the imageRUNNER
(iR) C3100. Ever since this machine arrive, there
has no longer been any need for the old copier.
The standalone scanner, printers and fax have
also taken backstage.
Thanks to the
iRC3100, Arva Pack is enjoying dramatically improved
efficiency, lower costs and greater productivity.
The iRC3100 acts as a central communication portal
for this small company. Most staff prefer to use
the iRC3100 due to its powerful features and capability.
Print Productivity & Flexibility
This digital machine is able to print at a high
speed of 31 pages per minute in black and white
to sufficiently meet the demands of printing a
large quantity of invoices and delivery order.
When there is an occasional need to print colorful
artwork, the iRC3100 really comes into its own.
With its higher print efficiency and network capabilities,
all the print jobs are channeled to the iRC3100.
30 Times Faster
Faxing documents is now 30 times faster, thus
shortening the fax queue. With a large hard disk
shared memory of 40GB, large amount of fax numbers
can be stored to increase users' efficiency
and productivity. "When faxing, documents
are quickly scanned into the memory thus substantially
reducing the waiting time for outgoing faxes.
By receiving faxes in softcopy, unwanted faxes
can be easily deleted as well which is a further
saving for us. " said Ms Loi.
Cost With Advance Scanning Capabilities
Another great feature is the iRC3100's ability
to scan documents such as purchase orders and
order confirmation for emailing overseas to replace
faxing, thus reducing telephone bills by 35%!
also reduces the cost of sending color catalogues
to enquirers. With its high color scanning speed
of 31 pages per minute, catalogues are quickly
scanned and emailed. In addition, iRC3100 has
a unique capability to compress color documents
to one-tenth the size compared to normal scanners,
thus increasing the chance of getting the emailed
catalogue across to the enquirer by email substantially!
Said a very
pleased Ms Lee: "We are most delighted with
the iRC3100's ability to help us send color
catalogues to our prospective clients. It has
also helped us reduce cost five fold!"
