Product Development

Formpak can streamline and speed up the process of product development. New formulations can be added quickly and easily. Cost and other properties are calculated during the formulation development process. An important feature is the ability to see regulatory information and gain compliance reassurance during product development, allowing formulators to work more efficiently and independently without having to wait for checks from other departments.

Formulation development

Formpak is easy to use menu-driven software with built-in help facilities. Smart search allows speedy addition of new ingredients during formulation creation. Formulations can include ingredients which themselves contain components (chemical constituents, bases, fragrances) down to any level. The formulation view can be customised to show ingredient properties such as hazards and ingredients limits.

Different versions of the same formulation or multiple formulations can be viewed side-by-side and formulation version history enables complete traceability.

Security includes sophisticated permissions so access can be restricted to authorised personnel only.

Project management

Project Management facilities in Formpak allow you to specify different types of projects and associated behaviour and tasks. In this way the system can reflect your processes, they can be changed when needed and you have a ready tool to help manage current workload and analyse historical projects.

Library management

Formpak has a range of library management tools for classifying and retrieving both ingredients and formulations. In addition to standard search terms such as name and price, you can search by safety status, suitability for customers, sensory properties - in fact almost any property you can think of - and define stability of ingredients or formulations; sensory attributes, product benefits, legislation, technical status and more.

There are endless possibilities and they can be customised by you. When matching products are found, you can view or print the selection and choose the information to be included in your report.

Integrated compliance

By utilising compliance checks in key areas of the software, you gain the necessary confidence that your products are compliant for regulatory, technical and customer requirements.

Suitability checks enable any Formpak user to determine in seconds if an ingredient or formulation is compliant for a given set of circumstances. For example:
