Find the winning formula with the right business management software for your chemical company

Keep up with ever-changing compliance requirements.

Do you have the means to drive a more profitable business?

Investing in the right business solution could be the missing element for a successful business.

Managing your chemical business can be complicated.

The Global Harmonisation Standard(GHS), shipping, bill of lading issues, workplace safety and other issues affect you daily. Combined with competitive pressure and the need to get the most out of valuable resources, you need a solution that radically simplifies your operations, rather than adds more complex systems and rigid processes.

Can you react rapidly to the challenges of an ever-changing environment?

As well as the burden of reporting, the chemical industry faces stricter compliance rules more than ever. Can you keep up while still delivering the consistency your customers expect?

Comply completely

One of the biggest risks these days for global chemical companies is meeting all of the varying regulatory requirements abroad and especially locally. The Globally Harmonised System (GHS) is one example but it’s not the only regulatory challenge you should be aware of. The costs of failing to comply can be severe. Failing to navigate the complex maze of global laws and restrictions can have devastating consequences for your business.

Guarantee consistency

As process manufacturing moves toward increasingly specialised and multi-product business models, consistency between runs becomes more essential than ever. However, assuring the quality, safety and efficacy of your products at all times can often leave your business too inflexible to seize new commercial opportunities.

Manage your entire supply chain with Sage

Supply chains extend far outside the boundaries of your business, with essential parts of your business now being delivered by third-party organisations or contractors located around the globe. Local systems give you local management of these partners but not having a complete view across the entire supply chain can lead to delays and errors that cost you money.
