Benefits of ERP Software Designed Specifically for the Chemical Industry:
Dynamic functionality provides formulation capabilities by weight, volume and percentages while highlighting the results of blending in regards to reactions (both positive and negative), shelf-life, by-products, potency and other important attributes. The solution allows chemists to account for mixed units of measure, ingredient parameters, formula instructions and by-product management, as well as, security and procedures for editing and managing complex formula information within the detailed BOM. Flexibility, formula security and scalability are key features of formula management functionality in ProcessPro’s chemical ERP solution.
Meet regulatory requirements and stay compliant by standardizing the management, labeling and reporting of hazardous materials from raw ingredients through the shipping of finished goods. ProcessPro’s inventory traceability and visibility supports adherence to GHS requirements with integrated Safety Data Sheet (SDS) authoring to provide comprehensive and accurate label information for formulations. The ERP solution analyzes composition data to understand and effectively label the hazards resulting from production, allowing you to effectively handle complex procedures, address audit compliance needs and adhere to industry best practices.
Research and Development (R&D)
Research and development assists efforts to maintain a competitive advantage in the marketplace. New product development, customer requested items, greener ingredient substitutes and lower cost materials can occur in a sandbox environment without affecting current production. Create and produce sample products for customer approval with ease – allowing streamlined introduction of new formulations into the live production environment. Leverage the ERP solution to develop innovative products, test new formulations and remain competitive.
Inventory Visibility and Lot Traceability
Inventory management ensures accurate full forward and backward lot traceability of ingredients, work-in-progress (WIP) and finished goods to ensure compliance throughout the manufacturing process. Optimizes purchasing, manufacturing and delivery of goods with Material Requirements Planning (MRP) that factors in supply, demand and forecasts to ensure that raw materials and finished goods are available to meet production demands. ProcessPro’s ERP solution establishes efficient and effective recall procedures to minimize impact of a product recall using real-time business tools to remain successful and compliant.
Quality Control & Testing
ProcessPro’s chemical ERP solution assists with securely storing in-process and customer-specific test results, generates CofA’s, maintains data retention and provides metrics for reporting to ensure consistent quality of end products. The solution’s quality control monitoring and testing specifications ensure products are manufactured in the correct quantity, formulation, grade and packaging - characteristics your customers expect. Integration of key business transactions maintains audit trails that keep you compliant with record-keeping requirements.
Advanced Analytics and Reporting
With real-time data and easy-to-use dashboards, tracking company KPIs and ensuring compliance with regulations keeps you ahead of the competition. Industry-specific functionality provides the pre-built reports and interactive views to search, filter, query and schedule alerts for analyzing your business. ProcessPro’s analytics and reporting solutions help you to identify problem areas and make strategic business decisions.
