The decision to adopt a new software system to manage EHS data is a big commitment.

Through easy-to-follow infographics, sample decision matrices and background explanations, the NAEM report looks at the software buyer’s journey to examine the three key components of a successful EHS&S software selection, including:

  • Strategy and Planning
  • Defining the Requirements
  • Communications and Change Management

“We realize that the decision to purchase and implement EHS&S software is not always a smooth and easy process; however, with the right strategy in place, companies can more easily determine their goals and objectives to find a solution that meets their individual needs,” said Selin Jessani, learning and development manager at VelocityEHS who contributed to the report.
