Formulation Solution for the Lab

Are you a process manufacturer with R&D and Quality Control specifications? If so, you undoubtedly have Chemists developing and managing formulations plus Technologists & Regulatory Agents capturing quality data for compliance. Across many industries from Food & Beverage to Pharmaceuticals and Chemicals, the lab is an integral part of your operations. Yet, it’s often one of the most overlooked departments when it comes to software solutions to manage business processes, workflows and data.

What is Formulator?

Formulator is a software solution that automates the laboratory functions. It provides a ‘sandbox’ for the lab technicians to create, test, and manipulate formulations. Formulator provides industry-specific templates for Chemicals, Nutrients, Pharmaceuticals, and Cosmetics. The industry templates provide structure for data entry, properties, testing and performance to meet strict FDA and regulatory compliance reporting requirements. These industry templates provide a starting point for rapid implementation which reduces the time and cost to implement the solution, too.

Why Formulator?

Formulator delivers a different user experience for the lab through a streamlined, simplified user interface. It eliminates the ‘noise’ and clutter of non-essential functionality found in traditional ERP data entry screens. The beauty of Formulator is that it can stand-alone or connect to Sage X3.

Does it connect to Sage X3?

Many of our clients increase the value of Formulator by integrating it to Sage X3 thereby connecting the lab with the accounting, distribution and production processes. The value of integration includes:

  • Synchronization of inventories, costing, and accounting information,
  • The ability to create BOM Formulas and Recipes from the lab R&D,
  • Consolidated reporting for compliance and labels,
  • Streamlined testing procedures and performance results.

Why do you need Formulator?

Formulator was designed specifically with the lab in mind. It delivers a fully functional suite of critical requirements from R&D through formulation, quality, reporting, and compliance including SDS, LOLI,  CoC, GHS, and FDA. It’s simplicity as a single-purpose solution means a quick, low cost implementation producing a fast ROI.  Best of all, Formulator can be deployed On-Premises or in the Cloud so you don’t have to invest in servers and hardware either.
