VelocityEHS Accelerate® Platform Sets New Standard for EHS and Operational Excellence
CHICAGO, June 07, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VelocityEHS, the global leader in cloud-based environmental, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability software, today announced the launch of the VelocityEHS Accelerate® Platform. Designed to drive peak performance in the areas of health, safety, risk, environmental, social and corporate governance (ESG) & operational excellence, the VelocityEHS Accelerate Platform is the starting point of an exciting journey that will change how EHS software delivers value to the organizations who adopt it.
The Accelerate Platform is a powerful component in the VelocityEHS mission to make workplaces safer and more sustainable, which is shared by the customers who put their trust in it. Designed from the ground up relying on EHS expertise, best practices and elegant design, the platform helps users to solve complex issues in simple and effective ways. Since EHS affects such a diverse group within in an organization, even the best software in the world won’t be beneficial if it’s not used because it’s confusing, intimidating, or frustrating. The company’s industry-leading product design team left no stone unturned in its mission to take the user experience from good to great, resulting in delighted users who can quickly and easily navigate the software to accomplish their tasks and move on with their day. It is designed to be a true one-stop shop for VelocityEHS customers as the central focal point to manage safety, ergonomics, industrial hygiene, ESG, chemical management and learning needs through intuitive workflows that require little-to-no training because it simply works the way users expect it to.
“Effective EHS software doesn’t live in a vacuum; it requires the continuous influence of expertise, innovation and information to adapt quickly when regulations, operations, or your needs change,” said John Damgaard, CEO of VelocityEHS. “Simply re-architecting the VelocityEHS platform wasn’t enough. Instead, we developed a whole new approach to EHS software that combines our unique deep domain expertise with an immense amount of data garnered from having the world’s largest user base, advances in machine learning, and exceptional design to ensure your organizational resources are focused on identifying and eliminating risks.”
The release of the Accelerate Platform is foundational to the VelocityEHS ActiveEHS® vision, the company’s distinctive approach to driving a continuous improvement engine of prediction, intervention, and outcomes. With the largest ustomer base on a single EHS software platform, which paired with its machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI) expertise, VelocityEHS now offers learning opportunities that cannot be found elsewhere. These learnings will fuel even greater value across the company’s entire customer community.
Benefits of the VelocityEHS Accelerate Platform include:
“At no point in history have EHS leaders had the ear of the C-Suite to the extent they do today. The EHS teams at the most successful organizations are strategic business partners who influence and steward the company culture and drive key business outcomes such as quality, efficiency, and productivity,” said Matt Airhart, President & COO of VelocityEHS. “A huge leverage point in this change is the effective use of true SaaS technology, like VelocityEHS. The Accelerate Platform is just a first step as we remain committed to industry thought leadership and to accelerating the pace of innovation.”
