Overview

Demands for faster innovation, speed to market and supply chain transparency have pushed companies to proactively identify, reduce and eliminate materials that demonstrate potential risks. Identifying optimal raw materials earlier in the product development life cycle is vital for placing safer, sustainable products in the market without delay or costly mistakes.

Whether sourcing a component for a new connected device or an ingredient for shampoo, you need to obtain accurate, quality information. In our digital world, you have access to endless amounts of data to help make buying decisions. However, extensive research is often required to discover new or alternative products and potential suppliers, scanning hundreds of product questionnaires across multiple disconnected systems.
