  1. Regulatory Issues

While many chemical companies recognize that other industries are worth learning from, there are aspects of the chemical industry that require specific conversations, with regulatory concerns being chief among them. With specific regulations like those for exportation or materials handling, the chemical industry can’t afford to be uncompliant but also would like to leverage automation, analytics and the like to make reporting and other compliance requirements more efficient and in line with other business processes. To do this, many chemical companies look to better leverage technology to meet this need.
