Growth Leads PIDC to Prioritize ERP Selection and BatchMaster comes out the Winner
BatchMaster Software, a leading provider of ERP solutions developed specifically for the chemical manufacturing industry, announced that PIDC has selected BatchMaster ERP with SAP Business One to support its company growth and significantly reduce their manual processes. PIDC uses innovative chemistry and advanced materials to develop and manufacture world class specialty materials for the automotive, oil & gas, electronic, alternative energy, construction, pharmaceutical and other industries.
“Because we are a highly innovative company, we realized that we needed an ERP solution that could shine both in Manufacturing and the Laboratory,” stated Lee Flake, CFO of PIDC. “We considered other ERP solutions, including Sage X3, but BatchMaster’s Laboratory Analysis for chemical manufacturers jumped out at us and helped us make our selection.” When asked what the most significant benefit he expects from BatchMaster ERP, Flake replied, “There are so many areas and processes where we will benefit that I could never list just one. For example, we are excited about BatchMaster’s Reporting & Dashboards, SDS capabilities, manufacturing batch sheets, and of course, Laboratory Analysis for R&D,” answered Flake.
With a world-wide presence, expected growth of about 20% per year and the recent opening of its second U.S. warehouse, PIDC recognized its need for a leading, end to end ERP solution. “We’ve been managing things using separate programs and manual systems for too long,” Flake commented. “BatchMaster ERP with SAP Business One is going to help us perform at the high level that both we and our customers expect. Having more streamlined and integrated processes let us pursue our highest priorities; responsiveness to our customers and the pioneering nature that lets us meet customer needs.”
