Chemical manufacturers, distributors and importers struggle to keep up with an industry that is transforming at a breakneck pace, and with a growing collection of rules and regulations for the labeling and tracking of materials.

These rules include the UN’s Globally Harmonized System (GHS) which, despite its name, is neither global nor harmonized: Its standards are being interpreted and implemented individually by each UN member economy, leaving a patchwork of conflicting rules and deadlines for compliance. Violation of these regulations can carry significant fines and other penalties.

Geographical lines are blurring, but industry investors still expect secure, consistent business processes across borders. And customers are demanding increased focus on EHS&S throughout the supply chain.

BarTender® software is the secure and trusted labeling software that adapts to meet the global regulations and business demands of the chemical industry. The world’s chemical facilities choose BarTender for its ease of deployment and configurable technology, all backed by industry expertise — at ValuTrack we understand the regulatory and supply chain pressures chemical facilities face.  Give us a call and talk to a ValuTrack specialist today to learn more about Seagull’s Bartender solution.
