RightAnswer.com, Inc. is an industry leader in Internet-based Software-as-a-Service application development and data delivery. We provide reliable data solutions and cost-effective decision support for Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) requirements. We continuously analyze our processes, methodology, procedures and standards to ensure our customers have the right tools to meet their requirements. Our highly qualified staff has years of experience with Fortune 1000 chemical companies, developing an expertise in environmental, health and safety information technology.
RightAnswer.com, Inc. excels in two main areas of expertise:
The decisions you make could have broad implications – for you, for your organization, for your colleagues, for customers or the people you serve, for the community at large and for risk management in general. You need information you can depend on to be up-to-date, complete and reliable.
RightAnswer starts by getting data directly from the sources that produce it and making it available through our user-friendly interface. Unlike single sources or aggregated data, RightAnswer takes another significant step by mastering the data into our integrated interface. Integrated data updates take place a minimum of monthly and often more frequently, so you can be confident the information is fresh. We also integrate time-saving direct links to specific information in key government data sources that are easily accessed from within our interface. These additional sources are integrated at the document level so that searches bring up the data you're looking for with fewer clicks and greater probability of finding what you need.
We provide integrated searching capabilities that address over 400,000 substances and provide access to over 4 million (M)SDS documents, many available in multiple languages. This means you'll save time and frustration, knowing you can find the information you need – without having to search through site after site, or separate data sources, still unsure of your results.
We only provide data from reliable sources. RightAnswer also offers exclusive, fully-referenced information from MICROMEDEX® Solutions (a business segment of Truven Health Analytics, Inc.) that has gone through a MICROMEDEX® rigorous literature review and editorial process to assure the accuracy and timeliness of the data. Thorough reviews are followed to ensure the usability and quality of our offerings so our customers have the right tools to meet their requirements for in-depth chemical and regulatory information.

Integrated Data – RightAnswer data sources are integrated, not just aggregated – a single search will return results from all databases that contain information on that query. Data received by RightAnswer is mastered to be accessible through the Integrated Index® search tool. Each integrated search scans all the databases simultaneously. Search time is significantly reduced, results are more pertinent, and you get to the RightAnswer more quickly.
More Data – In the last 12 months, RightAnswer has doubled the amount of data and sources available. We have incorporated the new data to take advantage of the Integrated Index® tool which searches for results across all databases. This makes searching so much easier than trying to use multiple sources with separate "silos" of data that then have to be coordinated. Additionally, RightAnswer has in-depth data that no one else in the EHS market can provide.
Proprietary Data – RightAnswer has exclusive rights to continually updated medical, hazard, ergonomic and reproductive risk data for EHS markets that is not available from any other provider.
