GreenSoft Technology Launches GreenData Manager-REACH
Productivity tool manages green data collection and compliance management on chemical substances including REACH SVHC. Combined with GreenSoft's data collection capability, GDM-REACH offers an integrated compliance data solution.
South Pasadena, CA, November 18, 2008 - GreenSoft Technology, Inc., a leading provider of environmental compliance content management tools and services for the global electronics industry, today released GreenData Manager-REACH, a desktop application to manage and analyze green compliance data and documents. GDM-REACH allows users to track and report on the presence of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC) in Europe's new chemical law, REACH.
Suppliers and manufacturers face regulation of certain chemical substances by global environmental directives, legislation, and customer requirements. In order to sell products, companies are required to provide information to countries or customers on the chemical content of their products to demonstrate compliance to these chemical substance restrictions.
"The collection and analysis of full-disclosure material data is becoming essential for many companies today," said Larry Yen, president and CEO of GreenSoft. "Disclosure requirements are growing and customers and regulatory agencies ask for different kinds of information. GreenData Manager-REACH is a flexible, comprehensive and affordable solution and will be especially useful for small and mid-sized manufacturers."
In addition to REACH SVHC, GDM-REACH helps collect and manage a full range of green compliance data: RoHS compliance status and certificates from suppliers, material composition substance data, MSL and peak temperature data for Pb-free manufacturing, tin-whisker mitigation strategies, MSDS forms, test reports, and much more.
GDM-REACH enables companies to analyze and report on chemical substance data and compliance documentation:
o Perform comprehensive analysis on any REACH-related substance (or multiple substances) on individual parts or products/BOMs.
o Roll-up substance weight or ppm on assemblies and products/BOMs.
o Report the compliance status on all parts or products for REACH SVHC, EU RoHS, China RoHS, Norway PoHS, and Halogen-Free.
o Determine the status of the collection of required data and documents
o Create an audit trail for regulatory agencies and customers.
o Generate REACH SVHC compliance reports on individual components or products.
o Generate REACH SVHC compliance and substance analysis reports on individual components or products.
o Use the built-in substance library (currently containing over 11,000 REACH substances) and add new substances.
o Receive automated updates of changes to regulations and substance lists.
"Manufacturers need comprehensive and clean data to make good design and supply chain decisions," said Larry Yen, president and CEO of GreenSoft. "With our expertise in data collection, we can provide our customers a complete compliance data solution. GreenData Manager-REACH can help identify problems related to high-risk substances or non-compliance before they become critical."
GreenSoft has been providing data services to companies around the world for seven years and has relationships with more than 5,000 suppliers worldwide. GreenData Manager-REACH enables a user to import data through GreenSoft's proprietary PartData format, which contains all data fields, documents and material composition details in one package.
