SAN JOSE, Calif., May 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- An update has been issued for the MRPRO dashboard that enables targeted web broadcasting to consumers of web services. Rollup and search capabilities at the XML level have been added in addition to similar features at the spreadsheet level. The Conflict-Free Sourcing Initiative's Conflict Minerals Reporting Template was recently updated to version 2.02 and all these features in MRPRO have been enabled to work with all versions in the 2.0x series, and smelter list imports from older version 1.x are also enabled. The Template contains information specific to each supplier that declares the source of specified metals, including but not limited to smelters and mines. Papros Inc's flagship product MRPRO automates several tasks associated with completion of this template. An updated dashboard to accomplish this has been issued.

Dr. N. Nagaraj, Chief at Papros Inc, a leader in Green, had this analogy to make about secure targeted web broadcasting while comparing it to third party web databases "Using third party web databases is like going to the village pond with water pots to fill and bring back, whereas targeted web broadcasting is like having water piped in to your dwelling. Targeted web broadcasting to consumers of web services is the future of the supply chain and we are happy to enable it for the community that uses the Conflict Minerals Reporting Template. The professionals of EICC and GeSI are dedicated individuals who have been working hard to enable responsible sourcing and we are happy to bring these features for their use and for all users of the Template."
