As an enterprise, Appleton deployed PI AF and Notifications in 2009. This presentation will briefly share the logic and structure of the deployment team. However, the presentation’s core will concentrate on benefits of applying PI Notifications across the business. The focus will be on real world business cases and the value to the business, relating how PI Notifications is used today within our three core businesses, Papers, Performance Packaging and Encapsulation. In short, how we own the technology, leverage our business knowledge, focus on business needs, and master the art of flexibility in an ever changing environment. PI Notifications is one of the vital tools assisting our greatest asset, our people, to impact the bottom line in manufacturing, quality, safety, environmental systems.
