CitySoft sell and support three specialized advanced business software systems for Process Manufacturing companies. The first system is Sage X3 with or without the product extension Procession. Procession enhances Sage X3’s core quality control, R&D, & regulatory functions particularly for enterprises operating in the food and beverage and chemical industries.

All three systems are designed specifically for process manufacturing enterprises. Each system provides companies with a comprehensive end to end business system solution with various product features & capabilities helping determine which product best fits each company’s business needs.


Recipes & Formulas

Purpose built Process Manufacturing systems like BatchMaster for SAP Business One and Sage X3 ERP Enterprise Management manage recipes and formulas as a unique entity and not simply as a component of a bill of material. This treatment better deals with compliance, revisions, allergens and super batches that produce multiple end products plus it simplifies the accounting aspects of costing production and products. Procession for Sage X3 Enterprise Management by Provenio adds an additional layer of system specialization for small to medium sized manufacturers of chemical products such as detergents, cleaning products, and adhesives covering GHS, logistics goods handling and hazardous materials ratings.


Material Requirement Planning & Master Production Scheduling

The ERP systems for process manufacturers sold and supported by CitySoft provide companies the ability to best manage raw, intermediate, and packaging inventory to ensure optimal production outcomes and tight cost control. Advanced purchasing tied to a companies master production schedule, lead times, EOQ’s and other measures provides guidance on what to buy, how much to buy and from whom to buy and importantly when to buy inventory. System management of make to stock and manufacture to order, use by, best before lots and batches helps drive the timely release of production orders. Accurate pick for production instructions accounts for known raw material quantities to achieve a target finished goods output. Flexible scheduling capabilities and work-centre management capabilities improves production through-put by reducing machine preparation (washdown & set up) times predominately around allergens and colours. Multiple production horizons support short, medium and longer term views of production.


Smart Machines & Integrations

The ERP systems for process manufacturers sold and supported by CitySoft utilise modern Web technologies that enable seamless exchanges of data between smart machines and the ERP system. Timely data exchanges supports faster and more informed management decision making. Popular ERP integrations include Product Lifecycle Management (PLM), Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS), and EDI. Unlike most of the entry level accounting systems with add on manufacturing products purporting to be end to end ERP systems for manufacturers the systems sold and supported by CitySoft do not rely on old fashion data importing and exporting routines to move data between systems. CitySoft utilise Web Services, API’s and GraphQL technologies to create secure, automated integrations.
