When it comes to EHS software, suppliers are increasingly moving to cloud-based program management software, according to a new report from Verdantix. “Workplace health and safety is shifting more and more to a digital enterprise approach, bringing data management and analysis to the forefront so businesses can use active data to predict and prevent incidents before they happen,” according to the report. Additionally, the market is continuing to morph as acquisitions and private equity investments reshape competitive dynamics, Verdantix says.
In fact, the vendors best able to meet customer demand for integrated EHS platforms, usability and mobile have changed significantly in the last 18 months. EtQ, SAI Global, UL EHS Sustainability and VelocityEHS are new entrants into the leaders’ quadrant. Enablon has the highest score for EHS software product capabilities followed by Cority in second place and Intelex in third.
The Verdantix report recommended top vendors in the following categories:
• Integrated EHS software across all workflows: Enablon, Cority, Intelex
• Chemicals management and hazardous waste: Sphera, VelocityEHS, Enablon and Enviance
• Environment and sustainability: Enablon, Sphera, Enviance, Intelex, Dakota Software, UL EHS
• Occupational health and industrial hygiene: Cority, ProcessMAP, Intelex
• Safety, incident and risk management: Enablon, SAI Global, Sphera, Cority, Gensuite, Intelex
