CHESTERBROOK, PA - Deacom Inc., developer of a single-system enterprise resource planning (ERP) software for process manufacturers, has officially kicked off implementation for Encapsys LLC. As a privately owned, high-growth company operating in the specialty chemicals industry, Encapsys is a leader in microencapsulation technologies, with highly efficient and scalable operations that deliver high-quality products.
Focused on innovation and invention as its competitive advantage, Encapsys serves a variety of niche markets. The company's quality control and reliable processes are of the highest priority for company. "The word 'mistake' is not in our vocabulary," said Jeff Fletcher, CFO of Encapsys. "Encapsys has the capability to provide unique solutions to unique problems, making our business very complex. In order to advance the business while managing strict requirements, new technology needed to be incorporated into the foundation of our business."
After careful evaluation, DEACOM was selected as the ERP software able to deliver the strong, comprehensive solution to scale the Encapsys business - both organically and through acquisitions. To simplify the company's high level of complexity, Encapsys required an ERP software that is able to seamlessly scale from research and development through production, automatically convert units of measure and currency, include a scalable MRP to handle consigned raw material, and manage unique pricing scenarios, all in a single system.
"The Encapsys product and process is extremely complex but unlike other ERP software, DEACOM ERP does not require us to conform to their technology," continued Fletcher. "We can continue to manufacture in a way that has proven to be profitable for our business but now more efficiently with Deacom technology to support the operations."
