JAGGAER to Showcase Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute Success with Enterprise Reagent Chemical Management Solution at 2019 NAEP Annual Conference

April 8, 2019

RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, N.C., April 08, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- JAGGAER, the world’s largest independent spend management company will be conducting an in-depth review of features, applications and documented success with its industry leading chemical inventory management solution, Enterprise Reagent Manager (ERM), in tandem with Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI), at the 2019 National Association of Educational Procurement ( NAEP ) annual conference. Within the initial months of operation, RPI is seeing savings of 20-25% on their annual chemical spend.

The session, “ The Chemical Management Solution at RPI is scheduled for Tuesday April 9th, 3:30-4:30 PM.

“Through our review we recognized that managing the inventory of chemicals and the associated safety database manually on spreadsheets was cumbersome and inefficient. Now that we have conducted a digital transformation, all the information necessary for a researcher to place an order is readily available. The implementation of the system was so successful because it was designed from the ground up to simplify inventory acquisition and management, enabling our researchers to focus on their work,” said Ron Moraski, Director of Procurement Services, RPI.

Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute, America’s first technological research university, successfully launched the first comprehensive chemical inventory management system within the United States higher education space, utilizing JAGGAER’s ERM. JAGGAER’s ERM solution manages the complete chemical life cycle, from sourcing to receipt, tracking and disposal and is in use by 9 of top 15 and 12 of top 25 global life sciences organizations. The solution provides Rensselaer with the ability to track all chemicals on site and properly manage access, meeting compliance and safety requirements. In addition, Integrating JAGGAER’s ERM system provides users with up-to-date Safety Data Sheets (SDS) and detailed material hazard profiles for reporting.

JAGGAER representatives will also review ERM’s latest release updates, bringing its material management and health and safety capabilities into a new user interface and architecture, with enhanced capabilities.

JAGGAER is also sponsoring: How Strategic Sourcing Supports the Growth of Teaching, Research and Public Service at the University of California, 11 AM – 12:00 PM, Tuesday, April 8, at the NAEP conference.
