Chicago—June 18, 2014—Labelmaster, a provider of solutions for hazardous material transport compliance, released a set of SAP integration tools for its Dangerous Goods Information System (DGIS) software. DGIS is a robust software solution that manages compliance with hazardous material transport regulations. Thousands of customers use DGIS to manage the safety and compliance risks involved in transporting hazardous materials and to drive efficiencies in the shipping process.
“Integrating with SAP, the market leader in enterprise application software, makes perfect sense given the demand from our customers,” said Forest Himmelfarb, vice president at Labelmaster. “SAP focuses in most of the industries where hazmat compliance is most acute, including the chemical, pharmaceutical, automotive, aerospace, and oil and gas industries. Using DGIS as a complementary solution to SAP will bring powerful compliance and efficiency benefits to customers by leveraging SAP’s powerful core systems with DGIS-focused capabilities in hazmat transportation.”
Labelmaster partnered with Norstar Consulting Group to develop SAP integration tools. Norstar offers decades of SAP experience and involvement in hundreds of implementations, including many in which hazardous material transport was a critical issue.
“Many companies implement manual processes to manage hazardous materials, which drive up costs as well as risk,” said James Weller, Norstar’s managing director. “Others spent millions to customize their reports, interfaces, conversions, enhancements and forms (RICEFs) to interface to standard SAP processes, but still need experts to maintain the content. Combining all the complicated and changing regulations systematically in a system focused on logistics makes SAP implementations, as well as day-to-day operations, easier.
