True end-to-end traceability can be extremely challenging for today’s chemical companies. Many have shifted manufacturing and distribution processes to external providers and now have a supply network that extends to an unlimited number of partners.
The risks of not having traceability are tangible. According to the European Crop Protection Association, the sale of illegal and counterfeit pesticides around the world is estimated to be $5.8 Billion. In addition to the financial impact, the results of counterfeit product in the supply chain is extremely detrimental to your brand and potentially dangerous for your customers, consumers and the environment.
Many manufacturers have tried to solve the issue by directly connecting their distribution partners into their ERP system, but that only adds more complicating factors: security risks, license costs, training issues and partners who insist on using their own systems (leaving you to manually reconcile the data).
We can help you solve both challenges: Traceability and Partner Integration. Acsis Edge Network delivers control for all manufacturing, packaging and warehouse activities, while also allowing you to actively collaborate with all partners across your supply network.

It provides complete traceability of movement or actions taken on each product, from raw materials through to the point when a final product is delivered to the end-customer. Those transactions feed your ERP and Warehouse Management or Inventory Management systems seamlessly and securely for full visibility without complicated training or added processes.
