Chemicals Industry SoftwareThe Right “MIX” of Experience and Technology
Chemical distributors and manufacturers face strict regulatory requirements due to the volatility of the chemicals themselves. Businesses must be aware of dangerous chemical reactions, the impact on the environment, and special handling needs to protect employees and consumers. Identifying a software solution to manage these subtleties requires industry expertise.
Do you need an industry-focused solution?
Companies used to think that any ERP software would work in a process environment but that isn’t the case anymore. Process-based solutions have been designed to meet the specific formulation, labeling, storing, handling, and shipment needs of the chemical industry.
The very nature of chemical properties adds a degree of complexity for chemical distributors and manufacturers alike. Process manufacturing requires a different feature set from discrete solutions to manage everything from the chemists in the lab to compliance of hazardous shipment restrictions published by the DOT.
