Software Solutions are Becoming a Key Strategy for EHS&S Management

Washington, DC, February 24, 2016 - As the regulatory landscape becomes increasingly complex, companies are turning to software systems to manage their environment, health and safety, and sustainability (EHS&S) data, according to NAEM Executive Director Carol Singer Neuvelt.

"Having a commercial system is becoming the new norm,' she said. "NAEM's research into the latest trends in EHS&S program management has shown that software tools are a key strategy for keeping up with emerging regulations, managing enterprise risk and responding to external information requests.'

The issue has become so central to the association's members that NAEM now dedicates an annual conference to the topic. On March 15-16, NAEM will be in Tampa, Fla. for a showcase of software tools and data management approaches from the user's perspective.

NAEM Program Director Mike Mahanna said the two-day event will emphasize peer-to-peer dialogue on the use and value of software for advancing corporate programs. As such, all the demonstrations will be presented by corporate EHS&S leaders, who share their personal experiences of selecting and implementing a management information system.

The conference will also include a focus on transforming data into insights that can help leaders identify leading indicators, appropriately distribute staff resources and proactively manage EHS&S risks.

"The leading companies are doing this already,' Mr. Mahanna said. "The future will be around the analytics of the data and developing deeper understanding of what the numbers are telling you.'

In addition to the content-focused sessions, the conference will also feature an interactive benchmark on user satisfaction and a full exhibit hall of leading software providers from the following companies: Enablon, Intelex, Locus Technologies, ProcessMAP, VelocityEHS, CH2M, Capitol Environmental Services, Chemwatch, Dakota Software, regAction, EtQ, Gensuite, Medgate, Red-on-line, cr360, Earthsoft, Lisam Systems, Mapistry, EHS Insight and SRA Information Technology.

To Make the Most of an EHS & Sustainability Software Investment, Don’t Skimp on the Implementation

March 7, 2018

Software is a powerful tool for accelerating EHS & Sustainability performance, but even the best tool can fail if it’s not implemented well, according to a new NAEM report that was published today. At the heart of the findings in NAEM’s “Ready, Set, Implement: How to Successfully Deploy an EHS & Sustainability Software System” is that success—or failure— often comes down to how well the company mapped the system to its core processes, trained its users and sold the value to the organization.
