PRODUCT COMPLIANCE MANAGEMENT: PRECISION SOURCING PLATFORM FOR SUPPLY CHAINS OF ALL SIZES

Green Arrow Labs' top ten clients are all global brands with revenues of at least US$1 billion, many of which are members of AFIRM, AAFA, SAC and ZDHC (Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals). But our software is used by brands and retailers of all sizes for measuring and monitoring factory, product, and material conformance with corporate sustainability, quality, and regulatory standards. These clients and nearly 2,000 suppliers involved in textile production, garment dyeing, leather finishing, sports equipment production, and many other manufacturing processes use our suite of cloud native Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) solutions for managing Restricted Substance List (RSL), general certificates of conformity, CPSIA/REACH compliance and physical/performance data.

SINGLE SOURCE OF TRUTH FOR ALL PRODUCT TESTING

Most major product testing laboratories offer online portals for initiating test requests and receiving test results, but rarely do retailers, brands, or other data end-users contract with only a single lab. Comparing results across multiple labs is difficult at best — different names for the same type of material, method, test group, and compound/parameter, with different reporting limits, significant figures, and even units of measure. Link ServicesTM solves this problem by enforcing approved test specifications, methods, harmonizing inter-laboratory data into a standard format, and applying consistent rules for determining pass/fail conclusions on the sample. Product quality, RSL, safety, and certifications data all in one centralized, secure place.

FUTURE-PROOF YOUR PRODUCT TESTING PROGRAMS

Tariff wars, rising labor costs, a shifting supply chain. There is no better time to roll out automation, quality, and process improvements. Any changes you make to your supply chain will have no effect on your Link Services implementation. We make it as risk-free and painless as possible, in four simple steps:

Discover/Design

A UX expert maps your workflow and develops clickable prototypes for your approval before we start configuration and development.

Configure/Build

A weekly sprint review will be conducted with stakeholders to review progress and solicit input at each stage.

Test/Train

User acceptance testing (UAT) and system administrator training are conducted in the final stage prior to deployment.

Deploy/Support

The system is launched into a pilot phase or full production, depending on project complexity.

LAB-AGNOSTIC PRODUCT COMPLIANCE MANAGEMENT

Link Services is used by many of the world's largest brands for managing Restricted Substance List (RSL) compliance data, product quality/performance data, and supplier certificates such as general certificates of conformity (GCC), declarations of conformity (DOC), and third-party certificates (e.g., OEKO-TEX, bluesign, etc.). Link is a Supplier Performance Management (SPM) application focused on product testing and conformity, with tools for supply chain partners to manage and communicate tasks and analytics associated with product and material testing programs and specifications, test ordering, test results and lab reporting, corrective actions, product certificates, bills of materials, and related product quality management activities. Bridging the gap between brand/retailer enterprise systems (e.g., PLM, ERP/SAP), suppliers, and analytical testing laboratories (in-house and third-party), Link harmonizes and centralizes the data into a single, lab-agnostic system.

SYSTEM-INDEPENDENT CONSULTING, INTEGRATION, AND SUPPORT SERVICES

We fast track your Link implementation by importing configuration data from your existing spreadsheets or systems. Spreadsheet templates with your suppliers, BOMs, users, labs, and test program configuration data (sample types/names, categories, test groups/items, methods, test parameters, units of measure, specifications/limits), along with any special usage or contents (product finishes, age grading, skin contact, destination country). Link is designed to do most of the heavy lifting for you and your supply chain partners. The system can be integrated with your PLM, ERP and other systems to tag defective materials and products so they can’t be used, ordered, or shipped by suppliers. We work with many of the largest independent testing lab networks to provide seamless integration, and our trained specialists can even validate lab testing results and prepare management and investor reports for you.

SUBSCRIPTION PLANS FOR EVERY SUPPLY CHAIN, REGARDLESS OF SIZE

We offer subscription plans designed for organizations of every size and complexity. If you have special requirements, request a quote and we will tailor a plan to fit. And there's no risk in trying it out — your subscription doesn't start until the first phase of the project is completed and the site configured with your test program(s), supply chain data, and user login(s). Depending on your plan, this phase also includes the branded site, test requests, and test reports, along with custom fields configuration. Naturally, you will have an investment of time into the project, but we minimize the impact with a quick launch/multi-phased approach. AFIRM Members have it even easier: Link is delivered with a starter configuration based on the AFIRM RSL, as well as a representative product quality/performance testing program.
