“The adhesives we sell come in two parts (resin + hardener). Making the two ingredients separately but shipping them as a kit was a special challenge, but we were able to use flexible Vicinity software, plus some Microsoft Dynamics GP customizations, to do what we needed.”

About Our Company

Vicinity Software was built based on a commitment to designing a solution specifically written for formula-based manufacturing while staying up to date with the latest trends in technology to deliver a state-of-the-art solution that can grow with any chemical manufacturing company.

Founders Seth Abady and Randy Smith spent the earlier parts of their careers coding, selling, and implementing the leading chemical manufacturing software on the market from 1985-2000. Initially designed for paint and chemical manufacturers, the original BatchMaster software quickly gained traction across industries with similar needs throughout the process manufacturing community. After years of supporting a thriving client base with this product, it was sold a multitude of times and development ceased to continue. Randy, Seth, and a fellow insider Paul Salvani connected to explore how they could continue to serve the needs of their existing client base and chemical manufacturers across industries and founded Vicinity in 2001.


“Throughout the implementation process and after, as we worked through internal growing pains of new processes and ways of utilizing the software, Vicinity has been dedicated to understanding the end-use of their product in order to cater solutions that could accomplish our goals as a business.  They were knowledgeable about the end-use of their software products and its application in a variety of industries that matched our needs and were forthcoming with creative ideas that were proven in their experiences with other clients.  

For ECC as a company, this gave us confidence that the tools we were implementing would bring value and solve problems we were not able to solve in the past.  VicinityChem has given us access to data we did not have access to in the past and as a result has allowed us to make decisions that have positively impacted our bottom line.”
