Ampacet Case Study - Migrating 20 years of data into a 100% automated solution
Ampacet Corporation is the world's leading volume provider of color and additive masterbatch solutions. Their products and services are in virtually every corner of the world. With nine global manufacturing sites, 19,000 active products and 70,000 total products, global regulatory compliance is critical to Ampacet’s operations. For more than 20 years, Ampacet controlled the authoring, managing and distributing of all (Material) Safety Data Sheets (M)SDSs and other hazardous document communications, with a completely customized in house legacy system. Over many years, several modules were added to increase Ampacet specific functionality based on internal logic and standards. Although very robust in functionality and tailored specifically to Ampacet’s unique requirements; the technology and platform eventually became dated with time. In 2002, Ampacet decided to replace all outdated, disparate enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems, with the J.D. Edwards nterprise solution.
