Southern Silicones supplies industrial, food and cosmetic grade silicones from its southeastern U.S. manufacturing plant to customers all around the world. The company’s largest market is the automotive care industry, where it supplies washes, protectorants and tire shine products. While Southern Silicones is young, its principals are industry veterans with more than 50 years of silicone industry experience and innovation.
As a young company, Southern Silicones’ management team wanted to invest their available capital and limited time in the operation, not on a lengthy implementation of a complicated ERP application.
Sage X3 deployed in the cloud provides the broad, industry-specific functionality and scalability Southern Silicones needs, combined with a low upfront investment, a fast implementation and minimal IT requirements.
The company was live on Sage X3 within just a few months, yielding a rapid time-to-value. Sage X3 deployed in the cloud the same rich process manufacturing functionality as the on-premises deployment, including customization capabilities. The solution is scalable to meet the needs of a growing operation, while the low initial investment and minimal IT requirements free up vital resources. Sage X3 is accessible from any device, including desktops, laptops, tablets and smartphones.
