Green leader Papros Inc. today announced updated support for the supply chain in the quest to comply with conflict minerals requirements through its licensing agreement with the EICC, where users worldwide will be able to seamlessly create, pass and share information using MRPRO. The EICC-GeSI Conflict Minerals template contains information specific to each supplier that declares the source of specified metals, including but not limited to smelters and mines. Papros Inc's flagship product MRPRO automates several tasks associated with completion of this template. An updated dashboard to accomplish this has been issued.

Dr. N. Nagaraj, Chief at Papros Inc, had this to say “When we heard that the folks at EICC were looking for ways to streamline supply chain communications and data exchange in the effort to support, conform and comply with US laws designed to promote human rights in the supply chain, we were happy to be able to offer an unique licensing arrangement for the part of our leading software that can help comply with conflict minerals requirements.”

MRPRO offers interfaces with best-of-breed industry applications. This means that while web data is accessible through the social media using secure authentication methods, and also through an AJAX interface for other web data, interface for data is also available through spreadsheets for the desktop and for some web applications also.
