Compliance Is the Road Map to Business Success

Compliance software is the road map to business success.
If we accept that environment, health and safety and quality (EHSQ) strategies are journeys toward business success, then it makes sense that compliance software is the road map helping you to get there.

Many of us have heard the phrase, “Quality is a journey, not a destination.” If this is remotely true, then the waypoints on this journey are better products, happier customers and lower costs all of which lead to business success. It is easy to repeat the journey metaphor in the spheres of worker health and safety along with corporate sustainability, either of which are proven paths to business success. So, if we accept that environment, health and safety and quality (EHSQ) strategies are journeys toward business success, then it makes sense that compliance is the road map helping you to get there.

In business, compliance means conforming to rules and regulations. These could be in the form … Read more...

How Can You Use Case Management to Support Employee Wellness Programs and Improve Workplace Health and Safety?

Case management software helps you track and trend workplace injuries and work restrictions, record medical visits and comply with regulations.
Around 80% of American employers offer health and wellness programs. They include employee assistance programs (EAPs), regular health screening and health improvement planning as well as general health and wellness promotion.

Most of us have heard the riddle, “What came first, the chicken or the egg?” In the workplace, there is a similar conundrum: Does workplace stress cause poor health and negatively impact wellness, or does poor health lead to increased workplace stress? The answer to this riddle is likely, “Porque no los dos.” It is probable that workplace stress is both cause-and-effect-related to worker health and wellness. This sets up a dangerous, positive feedback loop that results in a host of negative effects. 

We know that poor employee health costs companies billions of dollars a year, but what about their wellness? “Wellness” is the less tangible, more pernicious health factors such as mental health, … Read more...

Document Control Software Simplifies Compliance

Regulated industries face unique challenges regarding risk management and compliance, making document control software a crucial component in managing key documents such as permits, reports and forms.

There is a lot of confusion about what digitization, digitalization and digital transformation are, how they are different and what this means for document control. Many people use them interchangeably, but when you dig deeper, you will find that there are significant differences regarding their goals, scope and benefits. In the long run, they share a common goal of transforming legacy processes and operations to fully digital analogs that increase efficiency, transparency and customer satisfaction while reducing costs.

With benefits like these, it’s no wonder that companies are aggressively adopting these changes. The global digital transformation is expected to reach almost $3.3 trillion by 2025 as companies increase their spending on mobile technology, IoT and SaaS.

COVID-19 accelerated this trend and turned … Read more...

Have You Started Planning for Post-Pandemic Procurement?

Many organizations now are considering more options, such as repatriation and re-shoring, to increase the agility of their supply chains.

Over the last few decades, companies have been optimizing their supply chains to lower costs, reduce inventory and maximize asset utilization. Supply chain globalization offered many benefits. It opened new markets and new sourcing options and lowered costs from suppliers. Globalization and offshore manufacturing became so common that by 2018, China accounted for around 28% of all global manufacturing output and most companies around the world had become dependent on offshore manufacturing.

As successful as globalization was for companies – increasing their revenues, margins and profitability – it also created a vulnerability that was hidden until a Black Swan event such as the global pandemic brought it to light. COVID-19 exposed some significant vulnerabilities in global supply chains that companies are still wrestling with over a year later.
