Chemical manufacturers are strictly regulated, from environmental safeguards to quality assurance and safety handling of materials and equipment. Added risks arise from chemical volatility due to exposure, contamination, spills and incorrect disposal.

Microsoft Dynamics provides:

  • Lot traceability
  • Quality management
  • Certificate of analysis (COA) generation
  • Shelf life and recall management


From discovery through to clinical trials to the final delivery to market, pharmaceutical companies face strict regulatory compliance demands on manufacturing and distribution.

Microsoft Dynamics addresses these with:

  • Multi-level controls across formula definition, batch traceability, yield management, ingredients and finished goods.
  • Preserving integrity when repackaging or renumbering products.
