Actio Corporation, the venerable New Hampshire based company that makes the revolutionary software product called "Material Disclosure," announced yesterday significant upgrades to its core product.

Material Disclosure’s new features include:
•    Enhanced supplier contact management tools
•    Advanced supplier response query tools
•    IPC1752 xml schema importer and generator

Lifecycle assessment tools are receiving an unprecedented level of industry and regulatory attention,” said Russell McCann, President and CEO of Actio.  “Organized information about product composition, downstream use, manufacturing processes -- and updated regulatory chemical lists -- must be housed in a robust, relational database in order for companies to manage change, reduce brand risk, and keep adequate intelligence about chemical ingredients."

Actio's web site says:
Global manufacturers such as Owens Corning, MeadWestVaco and R.R. Donnelley use quality assurance software from Actio to manage risks associated with chemical ingredients in a product supply chain.   It's well documented that the toughest part of product compliance is collaborating with suppliers for chemical-level ingredient compliance.  This is a pain point for manufacturers, distributors and suppliers alike.  But leading companies from Fortune 500 to SMEs have found a solution in Actio's Material Disclosure SaaS platform.
Professionals, agencies and consumers alike spend far too much time reckoning with supply chain chemical ingredients.  One of the big questions is - what is the supplier passing along to the manufacturer?

“We continually improve Material Disclosure so that the software tool stays one step ahead of the curve and brings extra value to our customers,” said McCann.
