Chicago (March 8, 2022) — VelocityEHS, the global leader in cloud-based environmental, health, safety (EHS) and environmental, social, and corporate governance (ESG) software, announced today it has acquired two software solutions from MyAbilities, a global innovator in smart health technology and workplace safety. The purchase includes the intellectual properties of JobX, an ActiveEHS physical demands analysis (PDA) application that helps employers match people to tasks, and ClaimX, a return-to-work solution that smooths the critical transition of employees back to their jobs. The two products will be integrated into the existing VelocityEHS software platform in a move that strengthens and accelerates the company’s lead in machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) offerings.

“MyAbilities built JobX and ClaimX to streamline critical tasks associated with comprehensive job analysis and managing return-to-work progress,” said John Damgaard, CEO of VelocityEHS. “The acquisition reinforces our commitment to providing the best, user-friendly EHS software technology tools. As the only solution that now incorporates physical demands analysis, job matching and return-to-work functionality, the addition of MyAbilities software makes our fast-selling industrial ergonomics offerings even more comprehensive. The combined solutions further promote the use of best practices and regulatory compliance around worker safety, and will positively transform how companies assess, prevent and resolve workplace injury at scale.”

The product acquisition combines JobX and ClaimX capabilities with the innovative VelocityEHS Accelerate® Platform, which delivers best-in-class performance in the areas of ESG, health, safety, risk, and operational excellence. Backed by the largest global software community of EHS experts and thought leaders, the software drives expert processes so that every team member can produce outstanding results. VelocityEHS expects to launch the acquired products in an integrated solution as early as the third quarter of 2022.

“VelocityEHS shares our philosophy around helping companies leverage data and analytics to monitor and prevent worker injury,” said Reed Hanoun, president and CEO of MyAbilities. “With its large existing industrial ergonomics installed base and the speed at which VelocityEHS is adding new customers, JobX and ClaimX are perfectly positioned to benefit even more organizations who seek resources to support return-to-work activities, prevent injuries and optimize workplace performance.”

With over 19,000 customers and more than 10 million users worldwide, more businesses trust VelocityEHS and its suite of ESG and EHS management software solutions to safeguard employees, manage risk and meet their complex compliance obligations than any other industry software provider.
