PureTech Scientific Selects SAP to Assist with its Move to the Cloud

SAP announced that PureTech Scientific LLC, a global leader in the production of glycolic acid products with a range of uses from skin care to clean and disinfect, has gone live with SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition to position itself for further growth.

Iron Path Capital, a private equity firm that acquired the company in 2023, has significant growth ambitions for PureTech Scientific.

The first milestone for PureTech Scientific transformation was the move to the cloud to build a unified technology platform that would fully transition employees, customers, and vendors with minimal disruption.

Completed in 14 weeks, the implementation has already seen improved operational visibility and more timely transactional discipline, according to PureTech.

“The real-time insights and automation PureTech Scientific plans to gain from implementation of SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition will help to streamline our operations and significantly enhance our ability to serve our customers with greater speed and accuracy,” said PureTech Scientific CEO James Kanicky. “This is just the beginning, and we’re excited for the opportunities ahead as we continue to drive growth and innovation with glycolic acid in the personal care and health care markets.”

With its entire ERP now in the cloud, PureTech Scientific gets real-time insight of its daily production and the ability to employ and automate barcoding. PureTech Scientific is now able to complete SAP goods issue and goods receipt transactions automatically with mobile devices, further reducing time needed for reporting.

SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition was selected specifically to support PureTech Scientific’s vision for growth. With scalability and integration as top priorities, SAP S/4HANA Cloud Public Edition allows the company to now focus on pursuing growth opportunities in new markets and new capabilities for new and existing customers.

“PureTech Scientific has undergone a significant transformation in the past year,” SAP North America president Lloyd Adams said. “It has completely revamped its ERP system and moved to the cloud. Doing so allows for quick and data-driven business decisions as it enhances its capabilities and deepens its market share in key markets.”
