Have you heard of the term “ERP”? Not exactly sure what it is or why it’s important to process manufacturers and chemical distributors? Maybe you’ve done some research and found it overwhelming and a little confusing.
A batch manufacturing record (BMR) is an important document for chemical and process manufacturers: It tells users how to produce a batch of a given product, then records the entire production process, from start to finish. The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) requires companies to create BMRs to ensure the quality and safety of food, drug and personal care products, so it’s crucial to complete them correctly.

Here are 3 major benefits to integrating your CRM and ERP solutions together:
