DGIS Express - Ship Hazmat Safely 1. Reduced potential for shipping delays caused by errors on shipping papers or improper packaging or other incorrect information.

Labelmaster's software and online resources allow you to access current regulatory information, reducing the chance of improperly prepared shipments. With DGIS Express (formerly Masterform by Labelmaster®) you will have the tools needed to accurately create hazmat shipping papers and avoid possible costly shipping delays and regulatory fines.

2. Searching abilities allow for easy navigation through the regulations. See DGIS Regs.

If you're not familiar with all the various domestic and international regulations, searching for a specific topic may be like looking for a needle in a haystack! Labelmaster streamlines the process by providing searching abilities in RegStick® and DGIS Regs. Search by phrase, keywords, or section and find whatever you're looking for quickly.

3. Current regulatory information keeps you on top of and allows you to prepare for recent regulatory changes.

The latest revisions are also highlighted, allowing you to prepare for upcoming regulatory changes.

4. Streamline the process on completing shipping papers.

Filling out shipping papers manually can be a tedious, time consuming process, and the information recorded may be copied inaccurately. With DGIS Express completing shipping papers is a snap. Creating shipping paper templates is fast and easy. DGIS Express always includes an up-to-date chemical table, providing the tools to help assure your shipping papers are completed accurately and in compliance with current regulatory requirements.

5. Shipmate and other training programs provide employers an alternative to sending employees to costly seminars – savinglost time from the office and money for travel expenses.

Required by DOT, every hazmat employee must receive both General Awareness and Function Specific Training, but sending your employees to training seminars can be an expensive proposition. Labelmaster's CD-ROM based training programs let you control the time and location of training. In addition, for about the same cost of sending one person to a training seminar, Labelmaster's CD-ROM based training can be used to train numerous employees.
