Client: Drexel University

Overview: Chemical Inventory & Purchase Management System

Project Description: Fourth Technologies was engaged in the design, development and implementation for the b2b marketplace that shares data among the chemical manufacturers’ and the University’s lab personnel. This platform allows the transfer of catalog and purchase info through XML and web services. The users of this system will select the option to purchase products/chemicals from manufactures like Sigma Aldrich and Fisher Scientific. The system will use Ariba PunchOut to browse the catalogs of the manufacturers. Every purchase is documented in the system. The system will have complete information about the list of chemicals available in any lab/location at any point of time. Through this platform the department of S&H can manage and track all hazardous chemicals throughout the University.
