Industry : Chemical Manufacturing

Staff Size : Small (11-50 employees)
Chemical Manufacturer company needed an accounting system that will allow them to scale while providing them with the visibility and control required for the massive production of industry-grade hand sanitizers.
Systema Solutions implemented Dynamics Business Central in only one and a half months, on-target completion date before the rise of COVID-19 cases in Canada.
Chemical Manufacturer is now able to perform accurate costing, create real-time reporting, and scale to the production volume required to support the hand sanitizers needed by the Canadian government.
In these unprecedented times brought by the COVID-19 pandemic, many organizations will experience financial, operational and supply chain disruptions. Now more than ever, companies will have to be agile, scalable and responsive to the extraordinary needs, especially in the more in-demand industries providing essential goods and services. The timing to move and complete the migration to Microsoft Dynamics Business Central was impeccable for this chemical manufacturer.
This company is an industry leader in the manufacturing and development of “low-hazard” alternative chemicals. For almost a decade, they have helped the oil and gas industry with an efficient, responsible and effective chemistry alternative. With their technical support, innovation and investment, it shifted the industry to their technically advanced acid systems, helping their client’s operations while protecting the environment at the same time.
While its primary specialization is the manufacturing of petroleum chemicals, the company shifted its focus towards producing hand sanitizers when the news of the COVID-19 pandemic broke out in Canada.
Early this year, the company decided that it’s time to graduate from an entry-level accounting system Quickbooks to cloud-ready financial management software Microsoft Dynamics Business Central. The company commissioned Systema Solutions to perform the migration because of its agile, experienced technical team and its proven track record.
Systema Solutions implemented Dynamics Business Central with its built-in functionalities for sales, finance, resource management, inventory and distribution. With an agile team, it was able to complete the migration in only one and a half months without disrupting Fluid Energy’s regular business operations. All accounting processes are now centralized and managed in a single system using Dynamics Business Central.
“In a crisis like where we are now, we are very honoured to be part of a project that gives back to the community. This is Systema Solutions’ way of doing our share in helping the Canadian community to fight the effects of coronavirus the best way we know how – through technology. Dynamics Business Central will empower businesses to stay on top of the production and distribution demands now and post-COVID-19”, said Ryan Johnson, Director for Consulting at Systema Solutions.
Only a month after the successful implementation, this chemical manufacturer is now reaping the results:
Real-time costing update. The company is now able to know in real-time if they are profitable with their overhead and other costs with Business Central.
Triple the production capacity. Their time savings and efficiencies gained from shifting to Dynamics Business Central resulted in triple their normal production capacity. The new system allowed them to scale and rise to the massive production demands for hand sanitizers by providing them with an end-to-end solution to manage finance, sales, distribution and manufacturing.
Workflow automation. A workflow process has been put in place for their lab trials where lab samples to final approval can now be tracked through the new system, which the company never had before.
Centralized records. With only Dynamics Business Central housing all the data that they need to manage their operations, the company now has better visibility and rapid access to reports.
