Chemicals are used in a range of commercial and consumer products every day. Chemical manufacturers facilities need to follow industry regulations and meet Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP). Similar to other manufacturing sectors, one of the challenges within this industry is the rising costs of production. WinMan ERP can help improve business procedures and processes to reduce operational inefficiencies.
WinMan ERP can consolidate existing processes into one system, to help increase efficiency and ensure quality remains in place. It has the flexibility and capacity to manage processes from production through to distribution. All relevant documents such as master batch records, chemical compositions, sanitation and quality reports can be all stored within the ERP system, decreasing the need for paper documents.
The system provides information to assist decision making. For example, production managers can accurately see the availability of materials for production against demand, which helps simplify supply chain and inventory management. Materials Requirement Planning (MRP)
A master batch record can be created for each batch of products for full traceability and accuracy. It will detail all the ingredients and each step of the process. White-Label manufacturers can securely store unique compositions, confidentiality agreements and order information against the customer record. Access to data relating to intellectual property can be protected by restricting unauthorised access using the security profile feature.
Quality management is fundamental to chemical manufacturing but, human error is not something that can be entirely eliminated. Processes, workflows and master batch records can all be configured to suit business operations, helping to minimise errors and improve quality. WinMan ERP can create a seamless information flow between departments and improve customer and supplier relationships.
All quality controls and testing can be logged within the WinMan system. Different work processes or quality milestones can be set to ensure all required checks and controls are carried out. Defects can also be logged, monitored and reported along with any additional costs.
For more than ten years, the highly functional and versatile WinMan ERP system has provided the cornerstone for our successful growth, and we are particularly proud to have grown to become no.1 in the UK marketplace by supplying our acclaimed steel access covers and grilles which are 100% British made. WinMan is as important to us as ever, now that we are aiming our innovative products not only at the home market but also at foreign countries planning serious investment in new infrastructure.

Our WinMan ERP system allows me to directly and quickly access the management information I need to run the business – real-time reporting of key performance indicators such as operating efficiencies and deliveries. Vitally, more consistent pricing gives a truer margin on the work we perform. Meanwhile the system has supported our company’s strategy of investment for growth and its ability to meet delivery promises, hence strengthening its reputation in the marketplace as a reliable and trustworthy supplier. An accurate delivery date to the nearest day can now be assigned by our sales administration staff within half-an-hour of an order being placed. We proudly meet over 99% of those dates.
As a director of the business it was important to me that the system we implemented not only met our functional requirements, but also came from a supplier that was prepared to take on single source responsibility. Of all of the companies we evaluated, WinMan were the only one that ticked all the boxes.
The underlying advantage of WinMan for John Sankey was its flexibility and the ease with which it could be tailored to suit the company’s specific needs.
Our objective was to streamline data processing and substantially reduce keystrokes – a 50% reduction was the minimum target – and a lot of that keystroking was to do with assignment. The more non-value-adding activity we can take out the better.
