Hosted Software Manages Environmental Compliance
A software-as-a-service tool that manages environmental, health and safety compliance and is used by DuPont, Chevron and Johnson & Johnson has been upgraded with new features making it easier to plan for contingencies and keep tabs on compliance efforts.
The vendor, Enviance, provides a hosted platform on which businesses centrally manage all aspects of regulatory compliance in real time. Enviance System 6.0, a new version announced last week, includes the following upgrades:
*"What if" analyses for contingency planning.
*Dashboard metrics for key performance indicators.
*Enhanced capability to perform complex calculations.
*Automatic report scheduler.
*Advanced search criteria that can be customized.
*A more intuitive interface.
The system can manage compliance for a wide range of requirements, including greenhouse gas emission limits, standards governing reliability and security of electricity providers, air quality rules, or even Sarbanes-Oxley financial accounting rules.
"The new look and feel of the [Enviance] System makes the user experience more pleasant, and the new approach of desktop data warnings has created a more efficient process for identifying and responding to potential issues," Tacy Napolillo, DuPont's safety, health and environment project leader said in a news release.
Enviance pricing is a subscription model based on the number of users, type of use and intensity. Customers pay anywhere from a few thousand dollars per month to US$60,000, the vendor says.
