ABC Compounding, Inc. is a specialty chemical manufacturer of industrial cleaning supplies. Through decades of uninterrupted growth and profitability, the company has grown into a recognized leader in the industry. While ABC Compounding serves customers large and small, up to 60 percent of its sales are private-label products, distributed by regional and national janitorial supply companies.
ABC Compounding was using an older manufacturing application that lacked essential tools such as planning, scheduling, and MRP. Multiple disparate applications were required to provide the minimum functionality needed. The company needed a scalable, fully integrated, enterprise solution that was flexible enough to adapt to its business requirements.
Sage X3 offers a comprehensive suite of manufacturing, distribution, and financial modules and a clear migration path from the company’s prior business software.
A rapid implementation helped speed overall ROI. MRP automates the creation of work orders, eliminating hours of manual data entry. Intercompany and inter-warehouse transfers of inventory are greatly streamlined and traceable. The broad functionality in Sage X3 means the company was able to abandon several third-party applications, saving money and duplicate efforts. Access to decision-making data is vastly improved.
