Designed specifically to meet the unique requirements of the flavour, fragrance and essential oil industries and based on over 25 years experience in your industry, it will deliver a solution to address the specific needs of your business. Our innovative technical skills ensure that dataEssence delivers the performance you need for today's competitive business world but at a realistic price.

dataEssence is a modular system and as such is fully scaleable, so giving you the flexibility to buy as many of the modules (and user licences) as your business requires and increase this as the needs of your business grow.

Many aspects of dataEssence screens, databases, reports and documents can be tailored by you to meet the initial and evolving needs of your business, but we can also provide more extensive tailoring or integration with your existing systems if required.

Following publication of the IFRA 49th Amendment, we have now incorporated the changes in our software and our customers are being updated to the new standard. dataEssence customers will now be able to see the results of both the (current) IFRA 48th Amendment calculation and also the IFRA 49th Amendment calculation during the transition period, allowing them to compare the results of both.

The rich functionality of the product is supported by the high level of security you need to protect your vital data and powered by a high performance multiuser database that delivers the speed to keep pace with your business.
