Faced with increasing government regulations, ever-changing customer demand and global competition, all against the backdrop of risk that operating in the chemicals sector brings – such as air emissions, hazardous wastes, and supply chain risks – chemicals businesses need to not only manage these pressures accordingly, but also seek new ways to enhance operational performance and ultimately increase profitability.
Companies in these industries rely on disparate ERP, MES, and other IT systems to manage operations and costs. Unfortunately, these systems do little to manage and maintain chemical companies’ quality processes, risk management and regulatory compliance. As a result, many processes are handled just at one location, contain errors, and keep corrective or preventive actions from being implemented across the organization.
SoftExpert offers an advanced and comprehensive software suite for compliance and performance management that meets the stringent needs of the chemical industry. The solution covers all industry aspects, from controlling documentation and risks to performance indicator monitoring and environmental, health and safety management.
SoftExpert Excellence Suite lowers the cost of regulatory compliance and helps companies maximize success, increase productivity, reduce risk and adhere to various regulations. It also improves efficiency and effectiveness across the organization and simplifies reporting and management of critical quality and compliance issues.
The solution standardizes excellence and compliance management processes by providing a software platform with a central point of access to all up-to-date information, including: process management and performance; related documentation, such as policies, templates and procedures; critical EHS and quality data, such as chemical waste, hazards and training records; asset management, including maintenance control; and much more.
