“Now we can proactively plan for upcoming changes in material safety regulations and standards with our Global Sphera system. It helps us get out ahead of product compliance challenges so we can continue doing business in current markets and ever gain access to new international markets.”
“Sphera information and expertise gives us confidence that we’re providing accurate, consistent information to our customers on a global basis. It would be impossible to manage without a solution like this.”
“We had to implement the classification across all of our 3,500 reagents. Sphera met the challenge by enabling our Siemens team members to evaluate the chemical make-up of each product, including a great deal of toxicity data. Fortunately, we were able to use the information that was available in Sphera’s solution to simplify the classification process.”
Our extensive team of over 50 product compliance experts, many with over 20 years of experience, are key in enabling Sphera to effectively deliver our managed regulatory content, software, and managed services.
