Everything’s bigger in Texas, including Intelex’s presence as Platinum Sponsor at the final conference of the season: the NAEM EHS Management Forum.
NAEM hosts several specialized conferences annually that Intelex has always been eager to take part in. From the 2014 Advancing Compliance Assurance Conference this past August to the EHS Management Forum which comes to a close today, this elite group of conventions consistently remains on the roster of Intelex events.
EHS solutions experts Steve Ross and Jeremy Mawson traveled to Austin to represent Intelex at the forum. Issue-focused conferences like this are an excellent way to network with driven industry professionals and a great opportunity to focus on how our applications can aid organization’s EHS initiatives. Steve and Jeremy were joined by Elie Mouzon, VP of Product Management at Intelex, and the trio eagerly showcased our wide variety EHS solutions including Sustainability Performance Indicators, Behavior Based Safety and more!
In true Intelex style, Steve, Jeremy and Elie wanted a chance to kick back, relax, and enjoy some quality time with current and future Intelex clients. A dinner at Fogo De Chao Brazilian Steakhouse was the perfect solution and allowed everybody to unwind and enjoy some time in Austin. To those who attended, thank you for a wonderful evening!

Our aviation experts, Adam and Katsu, took flight to Orlando this week to attend the National Business Aviation Association’s (NBAA) annual convention. Each year 25,000 aviation professionals flock to this conference which is the world’s largest business aviation event. Attendees can expect days packed with sessions and over 1,000 exhibitors who are all dedicated to ensuring safe and efficient aviation operations.
At Intelex we know that working offline is an important part of aviation efficiency and that long flights mean large periods of non-connectivity. NBAA was the perfect opportunity to showcase our newest contribution to the industry, Intelex EverSync. This mobile app allows users to update their data into their system from any location, assuring that you never have to leave your safety program on the tarmac again. Its offline capabilities make it possible to access your Intelex system during those long flights, tracking information when and where it happens.
The great thing about these conferences is that we get the chance to continue the discussions outside of the formal sessions. Adam and Katsu were joined for dinner and drinks with both current and future clients of Intelex! It was the perfect way to wind down after a long conference day, and to spend some quality time getting to know the friends of Intelex!
Will you be attending an industry event soon? We’d love for you to join us at one of the upcoming conferences. Visit Our Event Page to stay up to date on where we’ll be in 2015 and make sure to let us know if our paths will cross!

A special congratulations to Boart Longyear, which is the winner of the Intelex Performance Award for Environmental Stewardship. This accolade is awarded to a client that shows outstanding contributions and leadership in environmental management through the use of the Intelex Software.
Boart Longyear has worked very closely with Intelex in defining the requirements for their Sustainability Metrics application. This application tracks Boart Longyear’s usage of a variety of resources, from diesel to electricity to gasoline to water, just to name just a few.

Congratulations to Boart Longyear on their admirable achievements in environmental stewardship!
Increasingly, ISO 14001 has become the go-to environmental management standard for cities, state governments, and public sector organizations of every size and shape.

We recently held the fifth annual Intelex User Conference and with it, the second year of the Intelex Performance Excellence Awards. We’d like to congratulate each of our winners for their astounding performance over the past year.
Our winner of the Intelex Performance Excellence Award for Dream Builder was Nexteer Automotive. To meet the requirements for this prestigious award, the Intelex client must have built innovative and inspiring applications from scratch, while demonstrating how they transformed their Intelex System into a major driver of success in the organization.
As winners of the award, the Nexteer Automotive team has developed not one but nine applications within the past year! Nexteer has built Intelex applications to monitor quality planning and supplier activities, house supplier compliance information, provide scorecards and performance-tracking tools to suppliers, track costs incurred due to quality issues, and so much more. The applications were built to meet the ever-changing needs of internal customers, and to ensure that their common business processes are followed globally.
Congratulations to Nexteer Automotive for their outstanding dedication and a special thanks to Lisa Thompson and Michael Bennett who made it out to the User Conference and accepted the award.
Last week marked the fifth year of our annual Intelex User Conference. The yearly event provides a key opportunity for clients from around the globe (and I mean around the globe – we had clients attend from Australia, Norway, UK, Cayman Islands, Middle East and more) to network and share best practices.
With over 230 delegates from industries such as oil and gas and food and beverage to metals and mining, this year’s conference boasted record attendance! To accommodate our diverse audience, we offered training sessions for beginner, intermediate and advanced users. One of the most popular sessions was the Product Best Practice Sharing Roundtable, where Intelex users with the same products shared new approaches and tools that others could incorporate into their system. We even had prospective clients attend the conference, so there really was something for everyone!
Our President and CEO, Mark Jaine, gave an inspired opening keynote on the Intelex strategic vision. He showcased the latest exciting platform capabilities, functionalities and advanced features on the Intelex system. Attendees were definitely in awe over the rollout of the new reporting functionalities.
Another highlight of the conference was the exciting night out at The Ballroom Bowl. After a day of training and informative sessions, clients were able to unwind with dinner, bowling and a live performance from Intelex’s house band Co-Pilot! But the most anticipated event of the night was the Intelex Performance Excellence Awards. These awards recognized Intelex clients who demonstrated commitment to excellence, innovation and success in EHSQ management and software development and deployment.
This year’s winners included:
- Nexteer Automotive – Dream Builder
- Agnico Eagle Minds Limited – Safety Performance
- Boart Longyear – Environmental Stewardship
- Hussman – Quality Excellence
- Albert Munoz SGS – Community Builder
- Etihad Airways – User Adoption
