Success Story:

Cole Chemical provided back office systems for start-up Amyris Fuels, a fuel additive company, on an outsourced basis. We provided hosted systems that helped Amyris ramp up for the start of business faster than if it had used SAP.

Cole Chemical implemented a live system for Amyris in less than 60 days, including products, locations and taxes.

Amyris needed a fully functional invoicing and inventory tracking system by the time its customers were ready to receive shipments.

We imported shipment and transfer data via electronic feeds from the terminals. We recorded, invoiced and reported all purchases automatically. All Amyris Fuels’ data, historical and current, are easily accessible through secure remote access in addition to daily, weekly, and monthly reports sent via email to appropriate personnel within Amyris’ staff.

Cole Chemical currently processes more than 7,000 invoices per month for Amyris using Cole Chemical's robust, totally integrated chemical/business package that also handles:

  • Batch manufacturing
  • Consignment inventory
  • Distribution, packaging and warehousing
  • Retail sales
  • Broker/commission sales
  • 3rd party shipments
  • Weights/measures conversion
  • International monetary conversions
  • Taxes
  • Fees
