Vicinity Software celebrates 20 years as a provider of industry-leading solutions.
FREMONT, CA: Twenty years ago, three colleagues established a formula manufacturing software system that solves the complexities of batch processing in the chemical, food, and brew markets. This month, the firm they formed, Vicinity Software (formerly Vicinity Manufacturing), still led by two founders, celebrates 20 years as a provider of industry-leading solutions. Back in 2001, Vicinity was established to service the growing vertical market of formula manufacturing. Before Vicinity, those manufacturers were only serviced by large or mid-range solutions or converted discrete applications.
Vicinity is known for rolling out the first software product for formula-powered manufacturing in the Microsoft Dynamics reseller space. Vicinity helps firms in the chemical, food, and brew sectors manage limitless recipes or formulas, enhance inventory visibility and control, improve quality assurance, mitigate costs, and experience smart growth.
As the company enters its third decade, Vicinity Software's scalability makes it a top option among batch manufacturers. The integration with Dynamics 365 Business Central means Vicinity provides manufacturers the potential to automate and enhance their operations with less deployment effort or operational disruption than ever before. The success can be attributed to the exceptional employees' efforts and the great client partnerships they have developed, which have sustained and fueled the growth over about 20 years.
Two decades and nearly 200 customers across several countries, its core mission remains the same, generating an easy-to-use, responsive product that responds to the manufacturing customer's requirements. Some key achievements from the past 20 years include the Vicinity product's evolution to SaaS in 2011. Quickbooks Online integration in 2015, and most recently Business Central integration in 2021, integrations with Microsoft Dynamics and QuickBooks Online to meet the demands of small and large customers and partner integrations with Accellos, Panatrack, FASCOR, Sovos, Microstar, and quarterly software releases started in 2014 and since that time over 150 new features have been added. Through Vicinity's creation of formula management software, firms have enhanced their daily business operations and improved regulatory compliance goals while realizing significant operating cost reductions.
