SEM Products has agreed to implement Deacom’s integrated accounting and enterprise resource planning software system to manage all facets of its auto body paint, adhesive, and aerosol manufacturing operations.
Deacom’s enterprise resource planning (ERP) software is a batch process manufacturing system that specializes in controlling the details of complex businesses within the paint, coatings, adhesive, and sealant industries.
As a mixed-mode manufacturer, SEM Products produces and fills its paint by volume quantities and manufactures its adhesive and aerosol products by piece quantities. Prior to its selection of the Deacom ERP System, SEM utilized several disparate software systems to handle its manufacturing process. This structure lacked total integration and ease-of-use, resulting in inefficient business processes such as inflexible inventory management.
After reviewing our existing software set-up, we determined it was necessary to keep our data in one complete software system, explained Brian Goff, SEM’s VP of administration/finance. We performed an extensive vendor search and discovered that it would have taken several vendors to do what Deacom does in one system.
Deacom’s ERP system will handle SEM’s accounting, inventory, lab management, production, customer relationship management and order entry functions.
