A must-have for chemical companies using Microsoft Dynamics

1

Data Management

iCM solves the challenge of maintaining and accessing chemical & regulatory data in real-time. iCM acts as the repository / SOR for all regulatory data. Avoid any possibilities of data contamination and penalties thereof.

2

SDS Management

With iCM, you no longer need to maintain Safety Data Sheets (SDS) outside your core ERP.

3

Labels Management

iCM eliminates the need to develop and maintain labels outside of your ERP. Most importantly, your labels can now print automatically with build-in workflows.

4

Eliminate expensive regulatory software

Maintaining a 3rd-party compliance software outside Dynamics is expensive. Its even more cumbersome to build customizations between 3rd party systems and Microsoft Dynamics. With iCM, you can have all of this data accessible as an integrated module within Dynamics.

– Cost savings using iCM

We have set the bar high for iCM. It has been developed by experts with deep hands-on expertise in chemicals and highly-regulated industries.

01

Built-in Automated Workflows

iCM’s Label Management eliminates the cost of customizing workflows in Microsoft Dynamics 365.

  • Shipping
  • Shipping
  • Receiving (Raw Material Receipts)
  • Quality
  • More

Note – You will save 50 hours or more for a full lifecycle deployment of each customized workflow. This development lifecycle consists of Specs, Development, Testing & Production.

02

Pre-Developed Labels

List of pre-designed & developed labels / label templates that you can choose from. (The minimum estimate for label development is 15 hours).

Note – Even if these labels are not used ”as-is”, using label templates will save significant time in development.

03

Infrastructure to House Chemical Data

Tables, screens and related development

You will require these processes & infrastructure to minimize dependency on external 3rd party regulatory software. Scalable design & architecture allows you to maintain chemical & regulatory data within Dynamics and gives you the ability to use this data in real-time transactions.

04

Full-function SDS Management

This includes screens, processes & infrastructure for all 16 sections of SDS, built-in workflows and security

Cost savings for the comprehensive SDS Management functionality – 100’s of hours for a full lifecycle of design, development and deployment.

Our customers have experienced a minimum cost savings of at least $50,000 for Label Management alone in their first year of iCM.
* Cost savings are higher with SDS Management and Label Management together.
