Specialty chemicals firm FSW picks Deacom ERP solution
May '14
Deacom, Inc., producer of a modern ERP software solution designed specifically for specialty chemicals and other process-based manufacturing industries, announced that First Source Worldwide (FSW), has selected the DEACOM Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system to reinforce their process control and establish enterprise-wide visibility in support of rapid expansion. 
FSW custom manufactures dyes, pigments and specialty chemicals used in a variety of applications including leather, paper, food, textiles, plastics and coatings. Their strong commitment to delivering safe, reliable products through an extensive quality control process has led to continued organic growth. 
Supplementing this organic growth with strategic acquisitions, FSW's footprint has expanded to include multiple manufacturing facilities in different geographic locations. The systems they had in place were not built to handle this increasing operational complexity, and would not be capable of supporting their long-term plans for expansion.
FSW began to look for a complete ERP system that would establish repeatable and scalable business procedures, and provide the comprehensive, enterprise-wide solution necessary to enable their growth.
Upon evaluation of DEACOM, FSW quickly recognized the value and potential benefits to be achieved from implementing DEACOM across the entire organization, including productivity improvements, enhanced visibility, enhanced quality capabilities and strengthened process control.  These benefits are also all precursors to their ISO implementation process in 2015.
They cited the flexibility of the true single system model, which not only eliminates the need for customizations and bolt-ons, but also encourages ongoing system evolution through customer enhancements at no additional cost, as strong indicators that DEACOM would help take their business to the next level.
"The DEACOM model is very fluid and scalable, allowing us to establish and replicate processes regardless of the employee or location; and with real-time data access and visibility, we will be empowered to make better and faster business decisions," said FSW Chief Financial Officer Chad Wisneski. "As we continue to acquire more companies and expand product lines in North America, Central America, as well as other export markets, the true single system will be critical to the success of our business."  
In addition, DEACOM's process manufacturing industry focus, and predictable cost of ownership driven by a guaranteed fixed pricing structure, were noted to be significant benefits.
