The Product Intelligence Platform™: The single source of truth for accurate product classification

At Smarter Sorting, we put sustainability into action, especially when it comes to classifying consumer products.

Inaccurate, slow and error-prone classification methods leave:

  • Retailers with uncertainty about store level product compliance
  • Stakeholders vulnerable to regulatory fines and supply chain delays
  • Shipping companies and regulated waste haulers with logistical dilemmas

A platform for peace of mind

The Product Intelligence Platform™️ is a secure, cloud-based database linking our retail partners and brands to fast and accurate regulatory product classifications.

The Product Intelligence Platform™️ is the place where products are classified. It's a platform for retailers and brand manufacturers to collaborate. Retailers can manage all their hazardous and regulated products. Brands have an easy, frictionless way to share their product data. The result: retailers and brands can make decisions using accurate product data.

We recently completed registration for all regulated products for a major retailer with 2,200+ stores. Products registered shot up over 30% in the past 3 months to meet the retailer's registration deadline.

"The registration process was very easy. I didn’t expect our products to be reviewed and approved so quickly - and yet they were. I am very happy with the Product Intelligence Platform!” - Edward Ro, Pureboost

Our Product Intelligence Platform™️ is at the heart of delivering impressive results in three key areas:

1) Accurate product classifications
Brands register their products by entering a few details to get the most accurate product classifications, without revealing confidential information.
 
2) Instant regulatory and compliance decisions
With the Back of Store System (BOSS), retailers get waste codes, transportation regulations and disposal classifications for every product on their shelves. 
 
3) Detailed EHS reports and insights
Through Tableau dashboards and tracking of EHS/ESG metrics, retailers and brands can access a comprehensive suite of reporting and insights.
 
With our platform, registering products is simple. Brands can register products one-by-one, or in bulk. Check out our step-by-step product registration guide

Data from the source

We collect a vast amount of data on everyday consumer products. Currently, we are in the process of registering the entire catalog (3,600+ products) of the world’s largest consumer goods company. 

  • We only collect product information from trusted sources to make sure we have the most accurate data.
  • We only ask for information we need. Full product formulation and proprietary data is likely not required for accurate classification.
  • We fill in the gaps with additional product data from trusted sources like SmartLabel, 1WorldSync or Salsify.

Mind your Rs and Cs: Classifications translated into Regulation and Compliance 

We are the first to take a computational approach to product classifications. We use machine learning, computational chemistry and regulatory AI to marry our millions of product data points with over 7,000 rules and regulations, some of which are listed below:
