Easily Manage Formulations and Packaging

Blend ERP is a suite of tools that enable process manufacturers to be more efficient.  Our Formula & Recipe Management tool extends NetSuite's robust item management capabilities, allowing your staff to quickly and easily curate formulas/recipes, track components, add other cost elements like labor or overhead, and manage finished good packaging.

Key Benefits

Blend ERP's Formula & Recipe management tool builds on the standard item creation process, allowing users to:

  • Use a single-page tool to easily create and maintain your formulas/recipes
  • Easily create new formulas/recipes and packaged products at the same time (e.g. a formula for paint and then packaged paint in a one-gallon can)
  • Add physical ingredients and other cost elements such as labor or overhead
  • Establish component yield
  • Work seamlessly in multiple units of measure with automatic conversions between mass and volume
  • Use pre-programmed product categories to remove guesswork from accounting setup and regulatory compliance 
  • Dramatically reduce errors with the built-in checks and balances
  • Avoid human error by limiting user permissions for creating and modifying recipes

We Know Because We've Been There

The Blend ERP team has real-world understanding of the intricacies involved in Formula & Recipe Management.  We worked for a chemical company that ran NetSuite for many years before starting Blend ERP.  Since then we have combined our manufacturing experience, NetSuite knowledge, and thousands of hours of development time to simplify the unique challenges around formulations.  Nobody understands your business like we do.
