MSDS Data Integration with third party systems
3E can provide seamless integration of MSDS / SDS data with various third party applications, including EMIS and ERP systems. Standard offerings include integration with:
- ADM™-VMSDS - SAP® users can extract more value from the SAP EHS Management application by feeding raw material vendor MSDSs / SDSs and associated data directly into the specification database using ADM (Ariel Data Manager) - VMSDS. A list of vendor products is all that is required for 3E to cross-reference against its massive library. In the event the MSDS / SDS doesn’t already exist in our database, 3E will proactively obtain it directly from your supplier on your behalf. And, 3E can assume the burden of maintaining MSDS / SDS revisions on an on-going basis, providing employees access to the most recent available version.
- 3E Integrated MSDS Data for MSDgen - Integrating 3E's MSDS / SDS management data and services with MSDgen facilitates the more efficient development of hazard communication documentation and enables more effective management of vendor raw material MSDSs / SDSs. The solution extracts key physical-chemical data from the MSDS / SDS and loads it directly into MSDgen, eliminating the need for the author to manually enter the information into MSDgen. MSDgen users are also able to leverage 3E's unique MSDS / SDS obtainment and revision maintenance capabilities.
- 3E MSDS Management for CISPro® - Full synchronization between 3E Online-MSDS and the CISPro chemical inventory system with 3E’s integrated MSDS / SDS module provides instant access to up-to-date MSDSs / SDSs associated with any material that is in the user’s CISPro inventory database.
- 3E MSDS Management for SciQuest - Full synchronization between 3E Online-MSDS and SciQuest's Enterprise Reagent Manager (ERM) system with 3E's integrated MSDS / SDS module provides instant access to up-to-date MSDSs / SDSs associated with any material that is in the user's ERM system.

When an incident occurs, customer profiles enhance 3E’s ability to provide effective and responsive customer service.
- 3E Spill - Immediate toll free access to timely information resources and professional guidance for chemical spill management, 24-7-365. To ensure compliance with regulations administered by agencies such as EPA, DOT and OSHA, as well as state or province regulatory reporting requirements, 3E’s professionals determine if immediate and/or follow-up reports are necessary and file them on a customer’s behalf.
The 3E Difference
3E does not simply collect MSDSs / SDSs that are available from free websites, but has spent nearly two decades assembling and maintaining its MSDS / SDS database via its Manufacturer Alliance Department, which consists of a dedicated, full-time team of specialists who obtain documents directly from, and maintain relationships with tens of thousands of manufacturers all over the world.
Each of 3E’s services comes with a variety of options and enhancement modules that can be configured based on a customer’s EH&S information management needs. Contact us for more information today.
