VelocityEHS and Enhesa Announce Strategic Partnership to Streamline Regulatory Compliance

CHICAGO, July 28, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VelocityEHS, the leading cloud environment, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability software provider, announced today the formation of a strategic partnership with Enhesa, the global environmental, health and safety regulatory consultancy. The partnership makes it easy for VelocityEHS customers — who are also Enhesa members — to directly access and deploy Enhesa’s regulatory compliance checklists within the VelocityEHS Audit & Inspection software product. The integration simplifies compliance in the face of increasingly complex global EHS regulations.

For companies operating in multiple jurisdictions, trying to track and comply with local, national, and international regulations is difficult to do and consumes valuable time and resources, often with poor results. By integrating Enhesa’s comprehensive regulatory content, VelocityEHS is making it quicker and easier for its customers to meet the specific requirements of the countries and jurisdictions in which they do business — and in a language native to the employees in a given location. Now with easy access to the Enhesa information, EHS professionals can eliminate many of the issues related to compliance gaps and outdated information that often arise when companies try to build and maintain their own checklists.

“Our partnership with Enhesa further demonstrates the VelocityEHS mission and commitment to delivering affordable, innovative solutions that help our customer meet the challenges of an ever-changing regulatory landscape,” said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS. “By integrating these two comprehensive EHS technologies, we’re offering customers the simplest and quickest approach to identifying regulatory non-conformance in locations around the world. Our customers save time and money and get peace of mind that they’re using best practices to meet their global regulatory requirements.”

The integration of Enhesa’s regulatory knowledgebase further strengthens the award-winning VelocityEHS solution, offering more effective methods for customers to track and meet today’s intricate compliance obligations. The comprehensive, cloud-based EHS management software platform helps users solve complex EHS business challenges in simple ways by providing a real-time, global view of the operational risks that exist in their workplace. Designed in partnership with EHS professionals, the VelocityEHS software delivers easy-to-use functionality through well-designed and simple solutions that help users derive value and ROI.

"Enhesa is pleased to partner with VelocityEHS to help ensure global regulatory compliance assurance for companies around the world," said Peter Hermans, CEO of Enhesa. "The strategic partnership will better serve our mutual clients through increased collaboration to ensure consistent excellence and seamless integration between Enhesa’s global regulatory content and the VelocityEHS software."
