Customer demands for fast deliveries and lower costs, together with increasingly stringent government regulations, create many challenges for chemical manufacturers. Add a continual need for innovative product formulas and recipes, plus frequent packaging variations, and the result is escalating complexity in all areas of the business, including development, purchasing, manufacturing, distribution, and sales.
Microsoft Dynamics business software provides powerful and flexible manufacturing, financial, and customer relationship management (CRM) solutions that support recipe management and efficient demand planning. Microsoft and its partners deliver systems that can help you shrink development cycles, respond quickly to customer trends, and comply with changing regulations. With the right system in place, you can improve operations, open visibility into the supply chain, and increase your competitiveness.
