ALBANY, N.Y.–The Wercs, Ltd., providers of hazard communication software, have released their fWERCSmart (Supply-chain Management and Reporting Technology) to the broader industrial marketplace, with a specific focus on manufacturers in aerospace, electronics, and paints and coatings, said a company release.
WERCSmart was developed to provide major big-box retailers with quick access to the most comprehensive regulatory compliance data needed to better manage the chemical supply chain. These organizations required a centralized platform that enabled seamless flow of regulatory data to and from the manufacturer. The WERCSmart proprietary regulatory engine would then assess the completeness of data and fill in the gaps to maintain local, national, and global regulatory compliance.
“The challenge is not only the availability of data,” said Lou DeSorbo, president of The Wercs. “The challenge is timely access to accurate global regulatory data. The supply chain is growing increasingly complex, and streamlining data flow in a fast-paced, global commercial trade environment is critical.”
In addition, WERCSmart is integrated at procurement. Manufacturers can now manage compliance of their entire supply chain before materials and products hit the dock.
“Even minor alterations within the supply chain can have a direct and significant impact on a product’s downstream compliance profile,” said DeSorbo. “WERCSmart provides advanced insight from product evaluation to delivery in real time.”
