Labelmaster's Dangerous Goods Information System (DGIS) Software Now Provides SAP Integration

(Cision Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) New SAP Tools Offer Greater Customer Efficiency and Capabilities in Dangerous Goods Transportation Logistics Labelmaster (, a leading provider of solutions for hazardous material transport compliance, has released a set of SAP integration tools for its Dangerous Goods Information System (DGIS) software ( DGIS is the most robust software solution available to manage compliance with hazardous material transport regulations. Thousands of customers use DGIS to manage the safety and compliance risks involved in transporting hazardous materials and to drive efficiencies in the shipping process.

“Integrating with SAP, the market leader in enterprise application software, makes perfect sense given the demand from our customers,” said Forest Himmelfarb, Vice President at Labelmaster. “SAP focuses in most of the industries where hazmat compliance is most acute, including the chemical, pharmaceutical, automotive, aerospace, and oil & gas industries. Using DGIS as a complementary solution to SAP will bring powerful compliance and efficiency benefits to customers by leveraging SAP’s powerful core systems with DGIS focused capabilities in hazmat transportation.” Labelmaster partnered with Norstar Consulting Group to develop SAP integration tools. Norstar offers decades of SAP experience, and involvement in hundreds of implementations, including many where hazardous material transport was a critical issue.

“Many companies implement manual processes to manage hazardous materials, which drive up costs as well as risk,” said James Weller, Norstar’s Managing Director. “Others have spent millions to customize their RICEFs to interface to standard SAP processes, but still need experts to maintain the content. Combining all the complicated and changing regulations systematically in a system focused on logistics makes SAP implementations as well as day-to-day operations easier.

“This would be extremely valuable for companies that have only a small percentage of dangerous goods as well as for companies where most of their shipments are dangerous goods,” added Weller.

“We are also excited to officially be part of the SAP ecosphere and SAP PartnerEdge,” said Himmelfarb. “Partnering with SAP will allow us to leverage SAP expertise and ensure that our solutions complement and enhance the existing capabilities that SAP provides.” Labelmaster will be participating at SAP’s ASUG/SAPPHIRE conference ( June 3 - 5 in Orlando. Edmund Manrique, SAP Strategist/Architect for Labelmaster, will speak about the constantly changing dangerous goods regulatory environment and how SAP companies can manage their dangerous goods processes while reducing risk and cost.
