Poonsub Can taps NTT for digital automation in Thailand

Poonsub Can, one of Thailand’s leading metal packaging companies, has engaged NTT for the implementation of an integrated digital automation platform

The implementation is part of Poonsub Can’s Digital 4.0 plans and is aimed at boosting business productivity and operational capacity with a robust digital infrastructure that better responds to customers’ evolving needs.

“It’s an exciting time for Poonsub Can as we embark on this new digital journey with our enhanced technological capabilities,” said Viboon Trakulpoonsub, managing director at Poonsub Can.

“Through our close partnership with NTT, we have identified new opportunities that will spur continuous business growth and drive innovation, enabling us to better provide more value to our customers,” he added.

Over the past year, NTT led the successful implementation of SAP S/4HANA in partnership with NTT Data Thailand and Netizen Co, a third-party technology vendor.

With strong capabilities in systems integration, NTT provided technical knowledge and strategic counsel that includes a review of existing IT systems, recommendations on technology enablement and innovative ways to gain business agility through intelligent automation.

Powered by artificial intelligence and deep analytics, the new IT systems will improve service gaps and speed up response time to customers’ queries, ensuring that they are attended to in a timely manner.

Quality control is also optimised with built-in traceability functions, eliminating human error while elevating production standards and overall productivity.

“Combining Thailand’s ambitious digital goals with Poonsub Can’s objectives, we exchanged global best practices in the manufacturing sector and identified actionable steps toward implementing SAP S/4HANA, so that Poonsub Can is empowered with the right foundation to optimise operations and improve customer satisfaction, laying ground for new business opportunities,” said Sutas Kondumrongkiat, CEO of NTT in Thailand.
