Manufacturing
Chemical manufacturers need flexible, industry-specific business solutions to help them improve their competitiveness and keep pace with ever-changing regulatory and quality assurance issues. Recognizing that chemical companies have varying needs in dealing with the use of hazardous materials, Sage ERP X3 software offers a choice of solutions ranging from linked Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) attachments to full-featured, integrated third-party solutions.

Seeking flexibility without compromising quality

We designed Sage ERP X3 Process to support the demanding industry-specific functionality that chemical manufacturers and distributors require in their businesses. This ERP software provides a powerful unit of measure conversion engine for managing the complexities in dealing with metric measurements or conversions from liquids to solids or gases to liquids.

Further, Sage ERP X3 Process provides a fully-integrated quality control process that can rigorously enforce inspections to assure item conformance to any required characteristics, operational tolerances or expected results.

Inspections can be conducted at key event points such as during receiving or at any stage of the production and packaging processes. Suspicious items or those that fail any inspection rules are automatically quarantined and designated for further inspection or disposal. The rules-based orientation of Sage ERP X3 assures blockage of any item from being used if it doesn’t have an acceptable quality status.

Sage ERP X3 also provides a complete array of industry-specific functionality required by chemical companies including the management of formulas and recipes, potency, by-products, multiple packaging units per product, shelf-life, lot control and traceability, specific gravity, weight calculations … and much more!

The key features that drive the success of an ERP implementation in this environment include:

  • Powerful unit of measure conversion to manage complexities in dealing with metric measurements or conversions from liquids to solids or gases to liquids.
  • Fully-integrated quality control process that can rigorously enforce inspections to assure conformance to required characteristics and operational tolerances.
  • Inspections can be conducted during receiving or at any stage of the production and packaging processes.
  • Suspicious items or those that fail any inspection rules are automatically quarantined. All Rules-based.
  • Complete system navigation by business process for fast user adoption.
  • Quotation Processing is crucial to ensure that a record of all previous purchases is displayed and creates the basis for monthly proposals. This list is usually filtered to available contract purchases and any new prices can update their master file to ensure fast and efficient sales order processing.
  • Container Management is useful in order to properly manage stock and to be able to automatically propose the most suitable container in the sales cycle.
  • Import Tracking allows tracking of imported goods from the time of shipping through to loading on the container and subsequently the vessel used until receipted in your warehouse. This allows for complete transparency in the supply chain and permits multiple landed costs to be accurately handled.
  • Warehouse management is entirely integrated in the suite and ensures proper management of picking and put-aways as well as efficient utilization of warehouse space.
  • Management of formulas and recipes, potency, by-products, multiple packaging units per product, shelf-life, lot control and traceability, specific gravity, weight calculations … and much more!
  • Compliance with ISO regulations and Health and Safety standards.
