The Situation: Integrate Business Functions
“The demands for our products and services were outpacing our ability to perform. We needed a way to do more with existing resources,” states Doug Brown, President of Brown Chemical. Brown began searching for a software supplier that would help integrate their business functions and be there for the long haul. Many of their internal processes were labor-intensive and they needed the ability to streamline work processes and satisfy their growing base of customers.
