Smart EHSQ Powered by Business Intelligence

DOWNLOAD NOW ButtonThe puzzle pieces of raw data come together to become a transformative picture for business when advanced analytics are applied.

History shows advanced analytical capabilities used in business are a foundation for improved decision-making and performance. Data gathered through various activities and processes becomes insight and intelligence when analysis workflows and methodologies are applied. And the more analysis scrubbing of data, the greater the potential for yielding knowledge and actionable awareness to accelerate improvement.

An exceptional analyst or analytics team can be a starting point for analytics. Going above and beyond in getting the most intelligence out of data collected requires something much deeper, through the scale of many people and analytical processes.

That happens in two ways:

a) Through embedded … Read more...

Safety’s Bottom Line: Using ROI to Gain Executive Support

Operation_Control

At the heart of safety management is the desire to create a safer workplace, where employees’ well-being is valued and protected.  What is often understated is the influence that safety has beyond ensuring everyone goes home at the end of the day.

PACE was able to achieve these results by using Safety Management Software. Effective Safety Management Software standardizes and simplifies safety processes, leading to fewer incidents, safer employees, and noticeable returns.

5 RFP Strategies to Find the Enterprise Safety Software of Your Dreams

Need to purchase 2,000 staplers for your corporate office?  Then a standard RFP built to produce the best commodity at the best price is the right way to go. Why? Because you’re looking at hundreds, potentially thousands of comparable offerings, where price is the chief differentiator.  Selecting a vendor for Enterprise Safety Management software however is more complex, and certainly more challenging than finding a vendor to meet your day to day stapling needs.  You’re solving problems that will drive the productivity and profitability of your business.  For that reason, the typical cut and dry RFP doesn’t guarantee the best decisions for your organization’s Safety Management software needs, focusing too much on price and not enough on business value.

So how do you flip the script and re-focus your RFP process on business value to ensure selection of the best possible vendor?  Below are five strategies that can help you … Read more...
