VelocityEHS to Discuss Technology’s Role in Improving EHS Excellence at the Verdantix Summit 2017

Chicago (May 11, 2017) — VelocityEHS, the leading cloud environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability software provider, today announced it will be speaking on effective EHS technology implementation at the Verdantix Summit. VelocityEHS brings its thought leadership to the annual event, which gathers top EHS professionals from a wide range of industries to share first-hand insights on how technology is helping to improve EHS outcomes.

Verdantix forecasts that the global enterprise market for EHS software will exceed $1.4 billion by 2020. Yet despite this projected growth, many companies remain ill-equipped to handle the transition from paper log books, spreadsheets or legacy IT systems to more advanced EHS management software systems. During the panel presentation, “Planning Your EH&S Technology Innovation Journey,” Matt Airhart, president at VelocityEHS Canada, will discuss effective methods for planning, implementing and supporting an EHS management system so it delivers the best value to the entire organization.

“Over the last few years, the demand for EHS software has increased rapidly, but many companies still lack the internal support, both from leadership teams and IT departments, to facilitate a smooth and successful digital transition,” said Airhart. “Simple, intuitive software – like VelocityEHS – provides industry best-practice functionality right out of the box, yet it is still configurable to meet our customers’ unique requirements. Our system is a true cloud solution, meaning that it offers a less expensive, more flexible and quicker route to implementation, so you can achieve operational excellence sooner.”
