CHICAGO, April 14, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MSDSonline, the leading provider of cloud-based environmental, health and safety (EHS) solutions, announced today that it has reached new milestones in the number of businesses and workers that use its solutions to meet critical safety and compliance tasks. As of April 1, more than 8 million employees are using MSDSonline's chemical management, on-demand training, incident management and authoring solutions to help perform their jobs safely. The number of businesses using MSDSonline to fulfill complex regulatory compliance tasks has surpassed the 10,000 mark.
MSDSonline's cloud-based applications operate under the "network effect" — meaning each additional user brings greater value to the entire system. For the MSDSonline community, growth in customers and end-users means more up-to-date content (i.e. safety data sheets) added to the database at a faster rate. It also means greater integration of EHS best practices within MSDSonline's suite of products via the company's robust collection of customer product suggestions and enhancement requests.
"Reaching these benchmarks is important to us because they can only happen if we are attracting new users while at the same time taking care of our current customer base," said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of MSDSonline. "And while we've seen tremendous growth, we've held onto the belief that every customer matters and deserves our best. We don't want to be a just another vendor; we strive to be a partner in our customers' success."
MSDSonline was a pioneer in electronic management of safety data sheets in the 1990s, and has grown into a comprehensive chemical management solution provider, adding products for training, injury and illness tracking, and SDS authoring. In 2014, the company expanded its EHS and sustainability offerings through the acquisition of KMI, the leading provider of enterprise level EHS and sustainability software solutions. The combined companies have more than 300 employees in the United States, Canada, UK and Australia.
