Challenge

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.

Solution

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.

Results

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.
