Ward Blaschko started custom programming out of his Saint John’s University dorm room. In 1985, he started his own business in a small office in St. Joseph, MN, operating under the business name EMR Software Innovations (EMR). In addition to his previous custom programming work, he provided full-service hardware and networking support for regional small businesses, as well as becoming a top SBT accounting system reseller for companies located throughout Minnesota.
In 1998, EMR acquired MS Consulting, which had developed a system for the process manufacturing industry, known as ProcessPro. At that time, ProcessPro was built onto the SBT Accounting platform that EMR had been working in and supporting for over a decade; the merger was a perfect fit. Under the new business name, ProcessPro, the company went national and started to attack aggressive growth plans. All of this lead to a market focus where they began working exclusively with process manufacturers that blended or mixed ingredients to make their products, and required tight restraints for lot tracking and quality controls.
Today, ProcessPro continues to be a leading mid-market ERP software solution for the process manufacturing industry. Designed specifically for manufacturers that combine batches of mixtures, ProcessPro seamlessly integrates all aspects of plant operation, from beginning order entry through manufacturing, packaging, shipping, inventory, and accounting. ProcessPro has been serving the food, beverage, pharmaceutical, nutritional supplement, cosmetic, and specialty chemical industries for more than 25 years.
