The enterprise software vendor of choice for modern, chemicals manufacturing ERP

When enterprise resource planning (ERP) software emerged from the world of materials requirements planning, it was focused mostly in repetitive, high-volume manufacturing. It is no surprise, then, that many ERP products today still perform best in homogenous, low-mix, high volume environments. Whether you look at a modern, software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform or an enterprise suite with a legacy dating back to the 1970s, you may find the product:

  • • Has limited manufacturing capabilities that may not meet your current or future needs for process functionality like those needed for chemicals industries.
  • Requires extensive customization to meet your current needs, and even more systems integration work to make it conform to your needs as they change
  • Lacks tight integration to crucial functions to support things like forecasting, quality, ECO compliance, or enterprise asset management (EAM) and maintenance
  • Consists in fact of many third-party solutions, each with their own licensing agreement and upgrade cycle
  • Seems little more than a tool to help your vendor lock you into their proprietary technologies
