JAGGAER Gives Customers Full Control Over Chemical Inventory With Latest Enterprise Reagent Manager Upgrade
RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC – August 22, 2016 – JAGGAER, a leading provider of spend management solutions delivering value beyond savings, today released the latest version of Enterprise Reagent Manager (ERM), the only chemical inventory management software that gives researchers and scientists full and efficient control over research inventory from sourcing and purchase through tracking and disposal.
Used by eight out of the top 10 global pharmaceutical companies, ERM’s newest version includes the industry’s first triple federated search engine, complete with real-time material availability check from suppliers, which allows search across all internal and external sources simultaneously. Through this robust capability, users can now search chemicals by supplier, chemical structure or text description to better meet their research needs.
With near instant startup, ERM 9 is up to 90 percent faster than previous versions. The dynamic and responsive user interface contains one-click tiles for quick navigation to important tasks and status icons that remain with use and display user actions, like items adding to a shopping cart or requesting a container for use from inventory. With the most modern UI that JAGGAER has ever developed, ERM is adapted for the tablets and workstations most widely used in today’s research environments.
“We like the new look and feel of ERM 9,” said Bruce Cherrin, Chief Procurement Officer at the University of New Mexico. “We look forward to deploying it to drive higher adoption among users campus-wide and streamline our procurement processes.”
In addition to the federated search, the ERM 9 upgrade includes the following features:
- Real-time material availability check from suppliers: Researchers save critical time with an automatic status check feature, which provides immediate confirmation if a chosen material is available
- Web service integration: External inventories and catalogs can now be incorporated into ERM’s search function, making ERM the only software to provide up to 10 searchable channels
- To Do List: Researchers can checkout and manage items from labs or self-service areas, and conduct a transfer of ownership and update usage without a scanner
- Held Cart: Allows administrators to control purchases of high cost and/or hazardous materials from non-authorized personnel
