How Cloud ERP and an Industry-specific Application Can Help Food, Beverage and Chemical Process Manufacturers Solve Their Biggest Pain Points
Tasked with producing many of the goods that we use and/or consume on a daily basis, food, beverage and chemical manufacturers must strike a balance between ever-changing regulatory requirements and their own long-term financial viability.
Accurately tracking product formulations, maintaining regulatory compliance, determining total product costs and managing HAZMAT documentation requirements are just some of their key responsibilities. That means complying with the Environmental Protection Agency (for emissions, spills and toxic materials), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (for workplace health and safety) and the Department of Transportation (for the storage, use and transport of chemicals) requirements.
Process manufacturers also have to:
Managing these complexities in today’s unpredictable business environment requires robust, enterprise software that can handle formulation tracking, product tracing, product costing, regulatory compliance, logistics and complete financial management.
Unfortunately, many process manufacturers use on-premises software solutions or basic systems to run their operations. Most of these solutions offer only basic functionalities and none of them can effectively manage the complexities of process manufacturing (on the front-end) and financials (on the back-end).
