STERLING, VA–(Marketwired – October 23, 2015) – ChromaScape, a colorant and additives manufacturing company located in Twinsburg, Ohio, has been using abas ERP since 2012 to help them achieve their critical business goals, including reducing inventory, reducing turn-around times, and reducing costs.

“One of the unique ways we use abas ERP is our reliance on its forecasting module to run our sales and operations planning,” said Ryan Stayanchi, Director of Operations Planning at ChromaScape. “We live and die off of this module.”

abas ERP’s forecasting module includes a calculation of forecasts from history, either at end unit or subassembly level, manually generated demand, and other inventory drivers such as safety stock. The forecasting module also displays variances between actual and forecasted demand. abas ERP’s sales planning further includes analytical tools to recognize early trends and compare actual demand to what was forecasted.

In addition, ChromaScape, which distributes environmentally friendly colorants to facilities throughout the United States, uses abas ERP to effectively operate four geographically dispersed production facilities. The plants are run as a single company with shared data, shared processes, the same Bills of Materials, and a high degree of inter-company communications.

ChromaScape will be updating to abas ERP version 2015 this year to start using the Unity Server. The Unity Server connects mobile applications to abas ERP with simple web-based communications.

“We really respect abas’ determination to continually improve their product and services, and it has really motivated us internally to do the same,” said Stayanchi.
