Asia Honour Paper Industries’ (AHP, previously Malaysian Newsprint Industries) legacy systems were slowing down development to keep up with tightening competition. The company needed an industry-specific system to support both existing and new business processes while enabling the expansion of operations. The new business processes will include automated production of new grades, such as printing and writing paper as well as recycled medium paper.
The company is planning an expansion to produce printing and writing paper as well as recycled medium paper.
The TietoEVRY's TIPS industry solution and services cover various AHP’s key processes, such as order to cash, advanced planning and trimming, production and quality management, warehouse management and logistics, invoicing, reporting and analytics and integration to the existing ERP and automation systems. This enables transparency in the whole value chain.
Asia Honour Paper Industries (M) Sdn Bhd (AHP), based in Malaysia, is one of the leading manufacturers and suppliers of paper across South East Asia. Established in 1996, it currently produces 280 000 tonnes of newsprint annually, sourced entirely from deinked pulp from recycled paper.
