Software provides the functionality to carry out tasks ranging from writing a letter on the computer, to the more complex task of organizing and analyzing large data sets. There are four general types of computer software which includes system software, middleware, application software, and engineering software. In today's era, it shall be surprising to find company or an organization which has not installed and implemented software and taken advantage out of it.

It is a known fact that Software solutions are utilized in mostly every business and process industries to take advantage of data accuracy, increase work speed, accurate decision making process, and time saving.

There are range of innovative products, systems and solutions developed to fulfill the distinctive requirements of industries as varied and diverse as the industry and trade itself. In large scale industries like; Construction Projects, Power Plants, Oil & Gas Refineries, Pharmaceutical Units, Petrochemical & LNG Chemical Factories Production Units, Steel plants software and technologies are developed and implemented to achieve ultimate challenges and target of engineering, and production and maintenance, operation, inventory, financials, security, human resources, facilities management, and procurement.

Today's industries are complex, multifaceted, highly risky and global. It is the business of smart and timely decision. EHS business directly deals with Environment, and Safety of human lives, as such demands high level of accuracy, priority and management.

Important suggestion for procuring EHS Software

It is important for an organization to select software solution that best fits their specific require as per the process. The following topics are useful and should be considered when deciding which software solution is best for your organization.
  1. Companies should spend some time investigating software and the vendor from which they are purchasing. If done right, the EHS software solution can provide valuable feedback through trending and analysis that will ultimately maximize return on investment.
  2. It is important to search for a vendor who have significant amount of experience in the field of Environment, Health and Safety and should have adopted, upgraded and implemented latest Technologies.
  3. Customization in software is most important thing, as various companies have different EHS policies, procedures and guideline to manage EHS system as per the trade. i.e power plant sector shall have different requirement then software developed for oil & gas industry.
  4. The software system should have built in security that limits what specific users or groups of users can see and do in the system. This gives an organization flexibility to access the application from any location or facility securely.
  5. EHS Software should have an authorization system based on authority in which an organization is able to control which reports and forms that a user or groups of users can see and work with. Companies should feel safe and secure about who can access the data in their software.
  6. The software should have automatic settings where an organization can set up email notifications that are sent to employees and managers warning them about deadlines and other announcements so that no appointment or deadline will be late or missed.
  7. A modular solution should be available, it allows a company to pick and choose the necessary EHS areas that they specifically focus on, and can continue to do so as a company grows.
  8. The software should be efficient, error-free and easy to use, it should give personalized feeling to all users by providing personalized desk board for quick operation throughout.
