Automated Lab Test Results Upload in Link Services

MATERIALS MANAGEMENT, TEST ORDERING AND REPORTING

LINK is a centralized product and materials testing and reporting portal, used to create, track, and close out test requests related to brand- and supplier-requested quality, sustainability and compliance programs. Both in-house and third-party lab testing workflows are supported, as are single sample and multi-component sample specimens.

If bills of materials/substances are used, they can be uploaded from a file, entered manually, or exchanged automatically with your PLM. LINK handles any type of product or material, as well as any type of testing, test result, specification, or conclusion (e.g. pass/fail, meets, retest required). You configure the system to conform to your terminologies, workflows, test program specifications, and lab data. Or let us analyze your requirements and configure the system for you.

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 Product Compliance Testing program management application focused on product and material testing and conformity, with tools for supply chain partners to organize and communicate tasks and analytics associated with test specifications, test plans, test ordering, lab data management and 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.
