KMI Releases NAEM 2015 EHS & Sustainability Software Buyers Guide

TORONTO, March 31, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- To keep its customers at the leading-edge of EHS and sustainability innovations, KMI — the leading provider of environmental, health, safety and sustainability solutions — has sponsored a new, groundbreaking NAEM report, benchmarking the way companies manage their EHS and sustainability data. The report is now available for download at no cost to EHS professionals on KMI's website. Titled the 2015 EHS and Sustainability Software Buyers Guide, the biannual report includes information NAEM collected from over 170 in-house EHS professionals surveyed about their data management needs, spending on EHS software, and most sought after solution features.

"EHS and sustainability are key areas of growth in today's business environment. We're seeing more companies willing to make a serious investment in EHS software solutions because they have seen the kinds of improvements it can drive, not only in safeguarding employees and their local communities, but also to their bottom lines via efficiency and productivity gains," said Matt Airhart, president of KMI. "We are proud to sponsor and make available this valuable EHS and sustainability solutions research that NAEM has so meticulously compiled and organized."

On its website, NAEM says the 48-page report is designed to help EHS professionals answer the following questions:

  • How are my peers selecting and managing their EHS and sustainability software systems?
  • What are the purchase drivers and critical business objectives for these software systems?
  • What system capabilities do past software purchasers use?
  • How long does it take to select new EHS software systems?
  • What lessons did my peers learn from undergoing the software system purchase and implementation process?
  • What should my budget be for a new system?
