JAGGAER, the global leader in Autonomous Commerce, is collaborating with Chemwatch, the international leader in enhanced chemicals management, to enable researchers to comply with safety standards across the full lifecycle for chemical reagents while saving on time and cost. The integration gives users of JAGGAER Research Material Management (RMM), the industry-leading solution for acquiring and managing commercial reagents and lab supplies, access to more than 140 million Chemwatch Safety Data Sheets (SDS).
The integration will be available to mutual customers in Q3 2023. It will enable them to view Safety Data Sheets and use the associated indexed data in real time. “Extending our solutions through partnerships like this is at the heart of our Autonomous Commerce strategy to make customers stronger, faster and more agile while reducing costs and risks,” said JAGGAER Chief Product Officer, Dawn Andre.
Regulations require organizations to maintain a supplier-specific SDS for each chemical in their inventory. While that’s already a significant task for a manufacturing or MRO operation, for even moderately large research labs that often have inventories of more than 50,000 products – and constantly expanding – the challenge becomes truly daunting. Service organizations have been the traditional answer, but with annual charges per document, cost can be a serious barrier.
“The new JAGGAER RMM-Chemwatch integration is highly automated, minimizing manual review and attention, so you get the benefits of the full-service approach at a lower, predictable annual cost,” said Tom Russell, General Manager, RMM Solutions.
“We’ve been aware of Chemwatch for some time now and have watched their evolution to provide the largest and most comprehensive, rigorously maintained collection of supplier-specific content for materials used in research labs. Coupling JAGGAER’s approach to acquisition and material inventory with their data and flexible API offers the opportunity to bring a uniquely new and valuable capability to the market,” Russell added.
“JAGGAER RMM gives researchers a first-class integrated buying experience. Combined with Chemwatch data and our API, researchers can now automate the identification of vendor-specific documents in the full Chemwatch collection, directly from the purchase process. This will inform the full lifecycle for chemical reagents and lab supplies from acquisition through waste, enabling consistent and informed access and reporting, and reducing risk, while saving time and cost,” said Dr. Bernie Bialkower, Principal, Chemwatch.
“The Chemwatch API already offers real-time access to data that RMM customers previously obtained from third-party suppliers. With this in place, we are exploring other ways in which Chemwatch can provide further information and add more value,” Russell concluded.
