"MultiPress means a huge improvement and simplification"

Hellyn Kartonnage is a bit of an outsider in the graphic industry. They are specialised in gluing offset-printed sheets on grey cardboard, which results in the creation of personalised articles completely tailored to the customer's needs: binders, ring binders, writing cases, storage boxes, displays, clipboards, flip charts, game boards; in short, anything with a grey cardboard substrate in combination with  gluing, cutting, scoring, grooving, piercing... This makes them an important supplier for the graphic industry (printing businesses and advertising agencies), for whom they often perform work as a subcontractor on the basis of provided prints or ready-to-print files. On the other hand, Hellyn also caters to the B2B market and supplies custom-made personalised articles to all industry branches.

Established by Michiel Hellyn in Ooigem as a one-man business in 1962, the company has been operating in Wielsbeke, West Flanders since 2004 with Mieke, Jan and Koen Hellyn at the helm. Together with 12 employees they attempt to safeguard the assets of Hellyn: quality of the supplied product, service through critical assessment of the creative concept in terms of technical feasibility, and flexibility to observe the requested delivery times as punctually as possible. A personal approach, direct follow-up and sound logistics are key concepts in this context.

Partly thanks to the relocation to the new buildings, the in-to-out flow is organised optimally and the layout of the production hall already suffices to convince that Hellyn attaches great importance to quality and profitability.

Within this scope Hellyn Kartonnage appealed to Dataline Solutions to optimise their calculation and order follow-up. Mieke Hellyn: "After seeing a first demo of MultiPress we were not yet convinced: we thought this package was especially written for printing businesses. The opposite appeared to be true."

"All printing machines presented in the program were perfectly adjustable to our own gluing and finishing machines. The package was made ready for use for the calculation of ring binders and displays with perfect assistance from Dataline Solutions. The many lists we used to calculate our offers before the arrival of MultiPress were neatly integrated into the system so that the requested option could be displayed with a single click. The fact that the system stores and proposes default settings has simplified our calculations greatly and has enabled us to get an overview of what has already been calculated for the clients in the blink of an eye. The interaction between calculation and order management minimises the chance of errors in the workflow. MultiPress means a huge improvement and simplification of offer and order management at our company and we are therefore very satisfied with the cooperation of and support from Dataline Solutions!".
