How Sage X3 Meets Requirements of Several Key Industries
Sometimes it’s a challenge aligning your operational requirements with the standard features of your ERP software. Your system should support the unique business processes that provide your company with a competitive advantage, without expensive customizations or awkward “work-arounds.”
With Sage ERP X3, you’ll get the best of both worlds with easy to use process configuration capabilities along with a wide range of standard features. In fact, Sage X3 is designed to meet the unique needs of several key industries with built-in features that are delivered right out of the box.
Food and Beverage
Heavy regulation and continuous legislative change in the food and beverage industry means that you need to keep a close eye on things like ingredient lot traceability and quality control. With Sage X3 you can maintain complete forward and backward lot traceability for each ingredient and end-item, along with an audit trail and historical archive for multiple years. Built-in features also help you manage formulas and recipes, potency, by-products, packaging units, shelf-life, and more.
Hard Goods Manufacturing and Wholesale Distribution
Whether you make-to-stock or make-to-order, Sage X3 offers features that speed up your production process and lead times and streamline procurement. You can optimize shop floor scheduling with the finite capacity planning tool, or bundle finished goods using the kit assembly features.
If you’re a wholesaler, Sage X3 also provides features you’d expect like warehousing, logistics, inventory control, inventory allocation routines, and automated landed cost calculations all built-in … no need for 3rd party software add-ons.
For the chemical industry, Sage ERP X3 manages hazardous materials use by including linked Material Safety Data Sheet (MSDS) attachments and chemical inventory software. Standard features also allow you to control formulas and recipes, potency, by-products, packaging units, shelf-life lot control and traceability, specific gravity, weight calculations, and quality control.
Pharmaceuticals and Life Sciences
For pharmaceutical and nutraceutical manufacturers, Sage ERP X3 offers automated support for process or batch manufacturing involving formulation management, weight calculations, and potency management. For medical device manufacturers, Sage X3 supports the production of discrete units in configure-to-order, make-to-order, assemble-to-order, or make-to-stock environments.
A Note About Quality Control: Regulations for strict quality assurance and control are common in industries like Food and Beverage, Chemicals, and Life Sciences. That’s why Sage ERP X3 provides a comprehensive quality control process, ability to conduct inspections, and automatically quarantine suspicious or substandard items for further inspection or disposal.
