Product Quest Moves Into the Future with ProcessPro Premier ERP

Product Quest needed advanced formula management, continuity between sales orders and production scheduling, and R&D tracking - ProcessPro meets and exceeds Product Quest requirements.

St. Cloud, MN, May 07, 2011 --( Product Quest Manufacturing, LLC recently selected ProcessPro® Premier ERP software to manage its manufacturing operations. Launched in 1996, Product Quest has been providing clients top quality health and beauty care products including lotions, shampoos, and cosmetics. Product Quest creates their own product formulas, or develops client formula requests.

“Product Quest recognized the need for continuity between sales order processing and production scheduling,” says Aaron Gindele, ProcessPro Business Development Representative. “With ProcessPro® Premier, real-time integration means less time spent in weekly meetings to arrange the production schedule. The process is seamlessly incorporated into the system allowing for better use of time and minimizing errors.”

Product Quest needed a system that could effectively handle units of measure conversions. For example, they purchase raw materials in gallons, mix batches in pounds, and sell finished goods in cartons. ProcessPro® Premier automatically converts different units of measure, a requirement unique to process manufacturers.

“Historically, Product Quest’s R&D department handled all product development on paper,” says Gindele. “ProcessPro® Premier will provide efficiency in managing formulas and determining costs on new products before releasing them into live production environment.”

ProcessPro® Premier is a fully integrated, real time ERP that offers a complete system from beginning sales order entry through the manufacturing and accounting process. ProcessPro® software is the leading ERP solution among cosmetic and skin care manufacturers because of its FDA compliance features including security audit trails, electronic signatures, and validation services. Any company that must adhere to FDA and cGMP regulations will be able to maintain compliance regularly as well as be prepared for a product recall.
