If you run a chemical manufacturing plant, one of your biggest costs is energy and feedstocks consumption, but there is a way to ensure that your company is keeping those costs down. Feedstocks and energy can account for more than half of a chemical company’s production costs, and keeping energy costs reasonable depends on your ability to predict your consumption, allocate your resources properly, and to make sure that your equipment is at peak efficiency when it is being used. Successful chemical manufacturers know that keeping costs down is easier with a computer system called an enterprise resource planning (ERP) system, such as Sage ERP X3.
Why Chemical Manufacturers Need ERPs
ERPs make it so that your entire chemical company is on the same page. When your back office and shop floor access the same data, everyone can plan together to ensure that your plant doesn’t waste energy or feedstocks though inefficiencies such as a low inventory, unexpected market stagnancy, or equipment malfunctions. ERPs such as Sage ERP X3 also protect chemical manufacturers from the dangers of FDA noncompliance, by providing full insight into all of your business operations on demand.
How Sage ERP X3 Helps
Sage ERP X3 is a powerful system built for chemical manufacturers that can meet all of your company’s needs right out of the box. Sage ERP X3’s fully integrated system makes it easy for every department in your company to view and analyze the same information for effective efficiency planning and to increase revenues while keeping down costs. With X3, your critical business data is also delivered in real-time so that you can be sure that your plant is only consuming expensive energy when you’re actively manufacturing.
