Our Products

We Know Process. So we built Procession.

Procession combines the industry insight of process manufacturing professionals with the skill and experience from our team of certified Sage developers and implementation consultants. This solution was born from the need of actual specialty chemical professionals seeking a solution to fully leverage Sage Enterprise Management (formerly Sage X3) for all facets of their business.

The Sage Enterprise Management Process Manufacturing and Chemical Distribution Solution

Process Manufacturers and Chemical Distributors face unique challenges.  Procession is a Sage Enterprise Management solution designed to help meet those challenges.
The combination of Sage Enterprise Management and Procession provides an all-in-one solution that was designed for process manufacturing and chemical distribution.

Procession Complete Package

You chose or are considering Sage Enterprise Management for best-in-class production, inventory control, distribution, and financial management. Procession completes the picture, adding functionality for Sage Enterprise Management for regulatory compliance, formula management, and advanced quality control. Procession also adds additional functionality for distribution and manufacturing that is specific to process manufacturing and chemical distribution.

Procession is an embedded solution that runs seamlessly within Sage Enterprise Management and was built using Sage’s tools. This means that there is one user interface to learn and all data is stored and users complete all tasks directly within their Sage Enterprise Management system.

Since Procession is an embedded solution, there is no additional hardware required. There is no third party application to install and maintain. No new user interface to learn. Best of all, since Procession is native to Sage Enterprise Management, it avoids the limited integration that plagues external stand-alone applications. Data flows easily from department to department within your organization. No more “islands” of data that are not accessible from within Sage Enterprise Management queries and reports. No more in-house solutions that consume your time and resources. Procession becomes part of Sage Enterprise Management, accessible from any Sage Enterprise Management session.

Procession is currently compatible with all Sage Enterprise Management (formerly Sage X3) versions from Version 9 through Version 12.
