VelocityEHS Wins 2016 New Product of the Year Award for its Environmental Management Software

Chicago (December 21, 2016) — VelocityEHS, the leading cloud environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability software provider, was awarded top honors in the Environmental Protection 2016 New Product of the Year Awards. The company’s comprehensive environmental management software – which includes Air Emissions, Water Quality and Waste Compliance modules – makes it easier and more affordable for companies of all sizes to automate complex environmental compliance and reporting activities. Companies looking to get a handle on environmental management for 2017 and beyond now have an industry-leading solution to help them reach their EHS goals faster.

“We are honored to receive this award from Environmental Protection, especially at a time when many companies struggle to meet air emissions and waste management standards because there are so few solutions available to help them accurately and affordably monitor, record and report the necessary data,” said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS. “The use of spreadsheets by companies to collect and analyze high volumes of environmental monitoring data in real time is widespread — increasing the risk of errors and inconsistencies that lead to non-compliance. Other companies turn to costly consultants to oversee the process entirely. Our software is more effective and less susceptible to error than spreadsheet management practices and less expensive than outside consultants.”

Increased public demand for corporate social responsibility and growing investor interest in sustainable businesses is placing pressure on companies to improve environmental performance. VelocityEHS has responded to these market pressures with environmental management software that is scalable and simple to use. Users can quickly and easily generate complete and properly-formatted compliance reports, including Title V performance test reports, NPDES DMRs, and biennial RCRA Hazardous Waste Reports.

Added Trout, “The software can be up and running in less time than almost any system available on the market and mobile access allows you to record emissions data anywhere, anytime using your tablet or smartphone. It gives you the power to stay ahead of your compliance obligations and to quickly identify trends that require swift action.”

Winners for the annual awards program were selected by an independent panel of three highly qualified judges, and according to Editorial Director Jerry Laws, the “2016 contest attracted high-quality, innovative entries in every category.”

VelocityEHS is the largest and fastest growing EHS software provider in the industry, with a wide-range of products available, including Incident Management, Chemical Management, Audit & Inspection, Management of Change (MOC), Compliance Management, Risk Analysis, Ergonomics, Corrective Action, Safety Meetings, Performance Metrics, On-Demand Training and Training Management.
