Chemical Importers, distributors and brokers have unique needs because of the hazardous nature of the products, and the regulations on those products the tracking needs to be a little tighter.

The need for a display and analysis of Product Specifications is essential in the chemical industry. VISCO allows the user(s) to specify the precise specifications associated with a given shipment of a product, and to provide documentation of these specifications to both their suppliers and their customers. The user can store the purchase order specifications and compare them to a vendor’s Certificate of Analysis ensuring that the product they are receiving is exactly what they asked for.

They can in turn provide that analysis for a customer who requests a product with specifications they previously identified. VISCO actually compares customer needs to product specs, to ensure that the product fits the requests of the customer.
There are also special functions built in for Chemical Brokers that allow the user to manage “Contracts” or Linked Sales Orders and Purchase Orders all from the same screen.
The flow of the Certificate of Analysis within the system is easy to follow and easy to use. However, if your company does not give specs to vendors, receive them from customers, or receive Certificates of Analysis during the importation process, the system does not complicate your processes and will not perform the associated checks. You may simply store the document as an attachment associated with the order. Other Chemical specific features include:
