Knowing When to Buy EHS Software

At what point does the cost of purchasing and implementing new software become preferable to the cost of maintaining your existing organizational software? It’s an important question, especially when you consider that as much as two-thirds of the cost of the new software is probably going to come from your EHS budget. Like just about anything else, software has an expected service life. For most well-designed systems, their useful life cycle can be as long as six to eight years; for systems that are less well designed or for applications that evolve very quickly, the useful life of business software can be as short as three years.

To maintain workplace safety you need a tool that will provide software solutions for a wide variety of services like compliance management, risk management, safety management, incident management, audits, document control, training management … the list goes on.

Five Tips for Intelex Application Design Success

By Jeremy Milam

The secret to designing a new custom application in Intelex is breaking the process down into small steps. Let’s take a closer look at the planning aspects involved with designing a new app.

Requirements gathering

Requirements gathering is probably the most vital piece of the process. It is very important to get the application stakeholders in a room and ask some key questions. One of those questions is: “How (if at all) are you currently capturing this data – are you writing everything down, using spreadsheets, or using another application?” This gives stakeholders a chance to give the pros and cons of their current system.

Data/reporting outputs

Data and reporting outputs are vital to getting buy-in from stakeholders. At the end of the day, that’s what people want to see. Even at this early stage with no data in the system, you can be thinking about how … Read more...

In Business, It’s All About Your Ideas, Intelex CEO Tells Students

Businesses succeed or fail on the quality of their ideas, not on the fanciness of the way those ideas are conveyed to management and other decision-makers.

That was just one piece of advice Intelex CEO Mark Jaine conveyed to students enrolled in a Management Consulting practicum at Toronto’s prestigious Rotman School of Management earlier this month. The two-week program is designed to give students real-world experience in providing consulting advice to a company.

“We have a saying at Intelex: It’s great ideas that win. It’s not about the presentation. I don’t care how glossy your binder is. It’s the substance that matters,” Jaine said.
