Web-based chemical management system drastically lowers costs

April 21, 2005
Gatekeeper™, the latest module of the company’s web-based CMS (Chemical Management System), is an automated system for routing and tracking chemical requests, approvals and purchases. It significantly lowers the cost of automating a company’s chemical management tasks — a demanding regimen that can easily cost 2-10 times the actual purchase price of the chemical, according to the manufacturer. Gatekeeper speeds and manages the multiple processes of screening chemicals prior to purchase, tracking approvals, managing inventory and accounting for chemicals within the company.
