Intelex Named a Leader in the Gartner 2014 Magic Quadrant for Environmental, Health and Safety Management Systems

I don’t know if you’ve heard by now, but Intelex was positioned as the EHS vendor with the greatest ability to execute in the marketplace in Gartner’s Magic Quadrant for Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) Management Systems!
