Aicomp’s industry solution VCPowerPack “Flexibles” is now successfully running at Mondi, one of the largest global packaging and paper groups.
The solution will help Mondi optimize processes and substantially increase customer experience. The implementation at Mondi’s Polish plant in Dopiewo is the fourth VCPowerPack Flexibles installation following the German plants Halle (Westfalen), Steinfeld and the Russian plant in Pereslavl.

Easy Configuration for Complex Products with an Integrated Supply Chain
As a long-term Aicomp customer, Mondi systematically continues the introduction of the SAP add-on VCPowerPack Flexibles with an interface to an additional SCM software (OM Partners). Thus, allowing a flexible production due to customer needs and enhancing the overall process and output. After the fourth Go-live with the new kernel solution, Mondi is following its ongoing story to success and remains one of the largest packaging and paper products manufacturers in central Europe, Russia and South Africa.
Features of VCPowerPack Flexibles
With this Aicomp solution Mondi receives a wide variety of functions. This includes the detailed VCPowerPack configuration with an additional Flexibles specific graphical user interface showcasing a clear structured product specification.
Moreover, there is a new functionality established which allows a FAST data entry on the standard Sales Document item view to describe the product characteristics – this technical enhancement is reducing the complexity for the user to focus on the important data. A traffic light configuration status helps the user to fill out all data correctly. This FAST data entry is fully integrated in the entire configuration landscape.
In addition, Aicomp’s easy value extraction tool enables Mondi to transfer all relevant production data to a planning software.
Aicomp’s VCPowerPack is the configuration solution inside the SAP System. It optimizes the CPQ (Configure Price Quote) process in a significant way: through a detailed calculation of products in real-time, a quicker quotation process, and a multi-channel integration. As a result, complex products can be offered as swiftly as standard products. VCPowerPack boosts productivity and results in a shorter process time for quotations, master data generation, and sales order processing.
