Integrate

The key to any successful software implementation is the ability to integrate with other software. Our integration experience with all major ERP vendors allows us to easily plug into critical integration points.

The WERCS interfaces with the following modules:

Sales Orders - Unless otherwise requested, an updated SDS (Safety Data Sheet) must ship with every single order. This makes an SDS a necessary component of the product transaction. By integrating directly with the sales order module, an SDS is automatically distributed to the customer upon the placement of an order.

Formulation - As formulations change or new products are created, an updated SDS needs to be authored. By integrating directly to the formulation database, an SDS is automatically created based on the input material.

Inventory - Federal laws mandate that both the producer and the consumer of hazard chemicals report quantities and locations of those chemicals to their specific municipalities. By integrating with the inventory module, key reports such as SARA are automatically generated.

Other Integration Capabilities Include:

  • Transportation/Bill of Lading
  • Trem Card
  • Hazard labels
  • SAP, Oracle, Adonix, Cimpro, JDEdwards, PeopleSoft, Ross Systems and BPCS
