WAYNE, PA – June 15, 2010 – A new Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) white paper released by Deacom, Inc., producer of process manufacturing software for mid-to-large sized pharmaceutical, specialty chemical, cosmetics, food and beverage, paint and coatings, and adhesive and sealant manufacturers, provides a guide to identifying business requirements and existing process weaknesses to help batch process manufacturers shortlist suitable ERP software systems.
“There are many, many ERP options available to batch process manufacturers today,” says Jay Deakins, president of Deacom, Inc. “It’s important for these companies to formally assess their business prior to contacting ERP vendors, in order to understand the functionality and type of software that they may require.”
An ERP search process within a batch process manufacturing company typically involves an internal corporate assessment, followed by the addition of relevant ERP software vendors to a shortlist. The shortlisted ERP vendors then carry out discovery sessions to better acquaint themselves with the organization’s unique business processes. After gaining this information, vendors will generally demonstrate how their software can handle the company’s current needs, and often, its future needs. Based on this ERP search process, manufacturers are able to make the appropriate final ERP manufacturing software selection.
