Why should I choose RightAnswer?

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.

RightAnswer offers exclusive, extensive and more data, at the right price!
