Mid-sized Chemical Manufacturers

CitySoft UK deliver end to end business software solutions to the chemical industry by combining Sage Business Cloud X3 with software by Provenio

Provenio’s Procession software was developed on the Sage X3 ERP Enterprise Management SAFE platform, providing system users with a seamless user experience, and system administrators with a low-cost system to manage. 

This CitySoft supported solution is helping mid-sized enterprises who manage chemicals, process, procure, and or distribute chemical products.

The Procession system extends the Sage X3 functionality, adding additional coverage over Safety and Handling, Quality Control, Regulatory Compliance, and R&D, plus customer service, logistics and production.

Chemical manufacturers working in a highly regulated industry, are obtaining great value from Sage X3’s automation and tracking capabilities. The systematic management of processes helps produce reports supporting regulatory compliance whilst driving down administrative overhead.

Sage X3 with Procession supports R&D efforts as a process, and not a one-time event. Procession automatically stores formula attributes such as % solids, VOC & density, and maintains a formula library. It also maintains QC Technical sheets.

Safety and handling procedures and personal protective equipment requirements are managed in Procession, with symbols and labels built into the system for easier system user identification of hazards.

System access to critical data is available on mobile devices.
