Foundations Of Our Economy
There are still many family-owned chemical and paint companies in our part of the country that have the local market space to thrive. These types of businesses are the foundation of our economy and compete with the larger corporations for market share. They also have the same types of operations issues as the larger corporations but they don’t have the big budgets to implement an Oracle or JD Edwards and based on my experience they don’t want a big package that dictates the way they do business either. Small to midsized companies need a flexible package but also a package that requires fewer setups and runs their core processing correctly right out of the box.

The great thing about this solution is that a proven system such as Dynamics GP includes superior accounting and distribution with a total integration to Vicinity Manufacturing. Vicinity addresses the formula manufacturing team from the product developer and product planner to the production manager and quality control tech.
There are many other items I could discuss such as commission structures (I think most process or formula manufactures change commissions on a daily basis!), lot traceability, complex pricing, etc., however the point I want to make is this; if you are a paint and chemical company please take the time to look at several software packages including Dynamics GP and Vicinity Manufacturing.
