Procession Distribution Enhancements Module

Distributors have unique needs, so they often require unique functionality from their business management solution.

Addressing these needs through customization is often expensive and can cause implementation delays, which in turn can jeopardize your project. However, sourcing an off-the-shelf solution that addresses your needs can reduce your risks, while providing greater functionality at a much lower cost.

The Procession Distribution Enhancements Module provides the additional functionality required by process manufacturers and distributors. For new Sage X3 customers, this off-the-shelf functionality reduces implementation costs by reducing the need for customizations. Procession provides the functionality that businesses need on day one, which speeds the implementation and reduces the user anxiety associated with a migration to a new system. Existing Sage X3 customers, who adopt Procession after their Sage X3 implementation, benefit from the enhanced functionality, which often addresses many items on the Sage X3 wish list and helps them gain greater returns from their Sage X3 investment.

See the entire order picture in one view

Customers expect instant information about the status of their orders. In a lean environment with quick turn-arounds, this often requires knowing if the product is in production, in the warehouse, or on the truck. The Procession tools allow customer service to see the entire order picture in one view and to quickly provide this information to your customer.

Take control of your shipping

Some products cannot be shipped to states or provinces where the product is banned or not registered. With Procession, you can manage your product registrations and control where a product can ship. Your bills of lading (BOL) require information such as U.N. proper shipping names, U.N. package codes, hazard designations, and emergency response information. If you ship private label or drop-ship products, you must manage the shipper name and the freight bill information that displays on the BOL. Procession enhances the Sage X3 BOL and provides this additional functionality.

Produce batch tickets for your manufacturing workflow

The starting point for process manufacturers is a formula or recipe that you produce in batches. The Procession batch ticket shows ingredients with weight and volume as well as the process instructions, including boiler-plate note functionality.

Superior functionality for less money

Procession Manufacturing and Distribution Enhancements was designed for process manufacturing and distribution. Adding Procession to Sage X3 is an economical way to address these common needs with an off-the-shelf solution that eliminates the need for costly customizations.

Seamless integration with Sage X3

Our team of process manufacturing professionals designed Procession exclusively for Sage X3. The toolset and development mythology used in creating Procession are the same ones used by Sage. Because Procession is part of your Sage X3 system, it shares the Sage X3 interface. This use of a common interface simplifies user training and user adoption of the product.

Reporting and simplified data flow

Procession includes  multiple reports for manufacturing and distribution. You can easily add additional reports using Crystal Reports® or the native Sage X3 query tools. Procession data is stored in the same database as your Sage X3 data, which simplifies data access and maintenance. Data flows automatically between Sage X3 and Procession, from pre-sales to manufacturing, in an intuitive manner and without the need for integration links.

Configurable for your needs

If your company has unique needs, Procession is highly customizable. This is possible because Procession shares the Sage X3 customization engine, which allow screens and reports to be easily customized on either screens or with source code. Ease of use, maximum flexibility, and complete functionally are reasons why Procession is the best Quality Control Control solution for Sage X3.
