Ingredients are always recognized for the permitted usage depending on whether they have been approved or not, and until an ingredient is not approved cannot be used, of course. It is always possible to recognize who has approved and when. The procedure to approve a new ingredient is systematically controlled and special warning messages are automatically sent out by e-mail or as SMS in case of time-out. Each ingredient can be seen as a file including all data like code, names, manufacturers, suppliers, trade names, regulatory information, costs, CAS numbers, REACh numbers, REACh Statement, Functions, Toxicological data, etc. When an ingredient is included in a formula, then all data included in the ingredient file are bound to that formula. That means that when you are on a formula, you can get all data included in each ingredient file. Then you can preview/print/export/e-mail your formula including selectively any data available from the files of all ingredients. This way you have at hand all data necessary to prepare any kind of report simply selecting the wanted combination of data.


When you get a formula on your screen, you are in the cockpit of your system and you have all the possible commands and functions under your eyes and under your clicks.

The multilingual capability of 4MACS regards two aspects of the database. The first is the capability of 4MACS to speak a certain language. It means that all descriptions on screens, all messages, all printouts, all frames are expressed in the selected language.

The second aspect regards the capability to store information in a certain language. For instance, if you want to have the name of your product in different languages, you have to enter those names for each wanted language. When you are going to have a printout in a particular language, 4MACS will search for the names –and all other entries- in that language.

The multilingual capability of 4MACS offers also interesting possibilities. Imagine this: you have your database in your Country where there is the head-quarter of your company. You have also laboratories and factories in different Countries of course speaking different languages. Well, 4MACS offers the capability to use the local language to all users whilst sharing the same database.

Currently the following languages are available: English, French, German, Italian, Portuguese, Spanish, Chinese and Japanese.

Quality Assurance

The module Quality Assurance adds quality to quality.

All items in and out can be submitted to a specification then all lots of those items will be certified consequently.

A specification is a list of analyses and for each analysis you can define the range of tolerance. It means that a lot to be accepted must reveal all results within the relevant range.

If all results are all right, then the lot is approved.

What happens if one or many results are out of range? 4MACS can activate several procedures –that must be pre-decided-: mostly sending warning messages to pre-defined recipients to ask for extensive and in-depth examination. The final decision will be either to accept or to reject the lot. The certificate remains associated to the lot for any further examination regarding the item, the supplier, the cross reference of involved lots of the employed ingredient, etc.

For instance, if in future there are problems with a lot of a product –imagine a complaint regarding PAO or worse- 4MACS allows you to keep all drawers and filing cabinets perfectly closed: just enter search for the item, enter the lot number and you get all certifications involved of all employed lots of all employed ingredients with the indications of trade names, suppliers, costs, who has done each single analysis and when, etc.

The performances of 4MACS permit to adapt the specifications and the consequent certifications to local conditions in different factories, warehouses and different Countries.
