CHARLOTTE, N.C., Jan. 5, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- ATTUS Technologies, Inc, adds Helena Laboratories, a clinical laboratory instrument and reagent manufacturer, to the growing list of global companies choosing the market leading WatchDOG® Pro for their BIS, OFAC and other watch list screening compliance.
Helena Laboratories is a leader in the development and distribution of new diagnostic tests, such as HemoHeel, which improve the health of millions of people around the world. Through its global distributors, Helena delivers its products and services to over seventy countries in Europe, Central and South America, Australia and the Middle and Far East.
"As the manufacturer of products that have the potential to positively impact so many people in both industrialized and third world countries, it's imperative that Helena's distribution not get slowed down by an inefficient watch list screening process," said Tom Fedell, president and CEO of ATTUS Technologies, Inc. "With WatchDOG® Pro, they have a time efficient and cost effective solution to one of the most pressing obligations facing today's global manufacturers, their BIS and OFAC compliance."WatchDOG® Pro's advanced search algorithm allows precision watch list screening. Businesses can cross check their entire customer database or individual customer transactions against a variety of relevant watch lists in order to meet their specific, regulatory compliance needs.
"We are very impressed with WatchDOG® Pro's batch screening capabilities," said Justin Padia, Export Compliance Manager of Helena Laboratories. "After implementation, we were able to double check our order history to ensure there were no previously missed watch list matches within our existing customer database. And going forward, we can screen new customers on an ad hoc basis as well as do routine rechecks on our full database."
In addition to offering a wide range of regulatory compliance products and services, ATTUS provides clients with complimentary access to its highly trained and qualified customer service representatives. "We pride ourselves on delivering the most advanced technology and risk consulting services but with a human touch," Fedell points out.
"At Helena, we are using WatchDOG® Pro to screen all of our customers and ATTUS' customer support team has been very helpful and informative with all of our inquiries," Padia said, agreeing with Fedell. "Their dedicated support was a key selling point for us; that, and the cost savings the product provides us because there is no per user charge."
The Bureau of Industry and Security (BIS), the agency responsible for U.S. export control policy, and the Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC), the U.S. Treasury department responsible for U.S. sanctions programs, both have strict compliance requirements for manufacturers exporting goods from the United States. Businesses in violation of those requirements risk civil penalties and possible criminal charges.
