125,000 Product Labels Online and Counting
... Oh, and did we say, "Full Word Indexed?"
For a number of years, electronic labels have been a topic of discussion whenever state pest control operators are gathered. While the discussion continues and some are “experimenting” with applications to upload labels, KRSNetwork has quietly moved forward working with states and pesticide companies to offer solutions. "We think our current collection of 125,000 electronic labels from 25 states shows we have been making significant progress," said Stuart Edmondson, Chief Technology Officer for KRSNetwork. "We are pleased to be part of the solution for many companies and states."
One state that seems to have the solution in hand is North Dakota. It may be hard for some of you to imagine, but North Dakota has 100% of their pesticide product labels online. How did they do it? They told companies to send labels to them electronically, on CD, or to upload them at renewal time using our portal www.kellysolutions.com/erenewals. Finally, if companies did not have electronic copies they accepted the paper copies and scanned them. The bottom line is… it worked and Jim Gray from North Dakota deserves our congratulations. He has streamlined his process and increased services to the citizens of North Dakota.
Accessing the labels is easy. To access a specific set of state labels, go to www.kellysolutions.com or to access the full word indexed labels, go to www.knowtify.net and experience the document search capabilities.
Manufacturers may submit electronic labels as part of an online new product registration or existing product renewal on www.kellysolutions.com. Also, they may send label revisions and supplemental labels anytime throughout the year from the same site. Multiple states can be selected to receive electronic documents in one step, saving registrants a significant amount of time. The state(s) receive an email notice that documents have been submitted and are available on their secure administrative web page for review and approval.
KRS uses PDF (portable document format) images because they are easy to create from most any graphic program; they can’t be edited (KRS encrypts them automatically); and they are searchable as long as they are not from a scanned image.
