MSDS Vault provides round-the-clock accessibility to accurate, consistent product environmental, health, and safety information – down to the substance level – across an enterprise.
Portsmouth, NH (PRWEB) December 10, 2009
Actio Corporation, the market-leading provider of SaaS software for environmental compliance through supply chain materials information management, announced today the release of the latest version of the Actio MSDS Vault® solution. Vault helps companies manage Environmental Health and Safety (EHS) compliance and mitigate the risk inherent to manufacturing in today’s climate of regulatory issues, consumer interest, and the employee’s “right to know.”
For over a decade, MSDS Vault has helped over 250 customers at some of the world’s largest companies improve and profit from materials management and EHS compliance. Actio helps manufacturers author, centralize, analyze and report on their materials safety data libraries.
“We feel this system constitutes a ‘best practices’ approach that not only helps assure the well-being of our employees and customers, but also makes our data management more efficient overall,” said the Director of Environmental & Regulatory Affairs at one Fortune 500 company.*
The latest version of MSDS Vault features innovative functionality that allows manufacturers to better manage changes in regulations (such as the upcoming GHS standards). The latest MSDS Vault also reduces handling costs by automating processes, providing enterprise-wide transparency of the chemical footprint, and letting companies take control of product stewardship, eco-PLM, and the reporting associated with these initiatives.
Actio MSDS Vault features include:
- an updated interface – single sign-on into Vault effective across entire Actio product suite
- enhanced rules engine for distributing finished-product (M)SDSs to customers
- updated supplier data-collection (via Material Disclosure and REACHtracker)
- more robust materials and ingredient-screening against all global, local and custom Regulation lists
- enhanced grid and table reporting functionality
- readiness for quick-conversion to GHS formats
- fluency in over 14 languages for fast-tracked global-time-to-market
- snap-on utility to ERP systems such as SAP, Oracle, and Microsoft Dynamics
- snap-on utility to PLM technology for enhanced product lifecycle data management, cradle-to-cradle
- snap-on utility to portals such as Microsoft Sharepoint
- one central database for secure storage of all collected data, with co-location backup (SAS-70 cert)
“MSDS Vault provides round-the-clock accessibility to accurate, consistent product environmental, health, and safety information – down to the substance level – across an enterprise,” said Russell McCann, President and CEO of Actio. “As a result, manufacturers are able to meet health, safety and environmental requirements in compliance with international, federal, state and local regulations.”
