If you think you suffer from information overload and complexity in your job, just imagine what it’s like to be responsible for product safety and compliance for the Würth Group. As part of its commitment to deliver innovative, high quality products and superior customer service, the $13 billion global wholesaler of assembly and fastening materials needs to track and meet regulatory compliance requirements for a dynamic portfoilo of over 100,000 products.
When you consider that Würth operates in 80 countries, the product compliance task looks even more daunting. Regulatory documentation and reporting requirements vary widely by region and country, and are constantly changing. Product safety documents must be in the appropriate language. Additional requirements come from its base of over 3 million customers, making product compliance even more complex. A decentralized approach to compliance was not cost-effective.
To help ease the burden of this near-Sisyphean task, Würth has extended its relationship with SAP and turned to its Idea to Performance solution portfolio. The company will use the cloud-based SAP EHS Regulatory Documentation OnDemand content service to help enable sustainable innovation by automating the management of more than 77,000 safety data sheets…while helping to acheive more confident compliance and free up resources to focus on innovation.
