Our founder, Ward Blaschko, started custom programming out of his Saint John’s University dorm room. Upon graduation, in 1985, Blaschko started his own business, EMR Software Innovations (EMR), in a small office in St. Joseph, MN. EMR provided custom software programming, hardware, and networking support for regional small businesses, including a significant number of manufacturers.
In 1998, leveraging over a decade of manufacturing software experience, EMR brought to market a comprehensive software package designed specifically for the process manufacturing industry, ProcessPro Premier. Due to the vast success of the software, EMR rebranded to ProcessPro, expanded nationally, and began working exclusively with process manufacturers that blended or mixed ingredients to make their unique products and required stringent lot tracking and quality controls.
In 2016, ProcessPro joined Open Systems, Inc., a leading provider of business software. The merger positions ProcessPro to access new markets by expanding their geographical presence and leveraging a large development organization to extend the functionality of the software and remain at the forefront of technology. The ProcessPro division will continue to enhance their software products, serve their clients, and pursue prospects seeking solutions for process manufacturing ERP in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, cosmetic, and specialty chemical industries.
Today, ProcessPro has grown 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 over 30 years.
