Working the way you work

Our Mission: "To provide the highest quality, "people friendly", product, to our customers, that will enhance and enrich their businesses"

The Smart Solutions Group was launched in Melbourne, in early 1999, in order to specialise in the provision of independent technology integration and management solutions, to the advertising and print industries.

Our innovative approach and in-depth understanding, of what is a highly competitive and rapidly changing industry, has generated many leading edge software and hardware system designs that are highly efficient, functional and groundbreaking. Due to our independence and wide market reach, many leading advertising agencies, print management and corporate firms are amongst our established client base.

Smart Solutions main focus is to build innovative technology solutions for our clients. We have developed our major products independently, while others have come from our client's direct requests. Generally most of our work is based around the productivity of the Internet and our unique applications. We pride ourselves in working with the customer throughout the entire process and delivering a quality service both during and after installation.

In 2013, Ergo Asia acquired Smart Solutions Group in order to enhance capabilities to continue to develop and provide technology solutions that deliver on the specific requirements of marketing services driven organisations. Deep expertise exists in the provision of tailored web based technologies for Job Approvals, Digital Asset management, artwork automation and dynamic publishing. The acquisition of this business delivered further leverage to Ergo to provide a broad technology suite tailored for our customers' needs.

Ergo Asia is a visionary company in marketing production. It brings independent managed services in design, digital, print, POSM, retail display and broadcast marketing production. Using an on-site outsourcing model, it services the largest private and public global organisations. With an aspiration to build the leading global marketing production platform, it delivers seamless workflow, innovation, cost reduction and exceptional production control. Its professional approach to procurement delivers highly competitive markets for clients, resulting in significant cost reduction.

Established in 2004, Ergo has grown to be the largest independent production company in Asia. With a highly respected team of 200 employees, it has built a reputation for robust process management.

In July 2014 Ergo Asia became part of the Konica Minolta Group, a leading global printing solutions company and one of the world's top imaging groups. This has provided Ergo Asia with greater capital and resource leverage across more than 50 countries and access to advanced digital imaging technology and global supply chain partners. This relationship enables Ergo to deliver extended services globally and leverage other group companies such as Charterhouse in Europe to deliver globally aligned services.
