Optial and convergence LLC identify the keys to success when selecting EH and S Solutions

London - 16 September 2013

As recently reported Optial and convergence LLC have seen rapid growth during their three year collaboration to bring Environmental Health and Safety Legal Registers to the market.

In a recent interview with “Sustainability Roundtable” Cindy Chiles, founder and President of convergence LLC put the success of this joint venture down to a number of key factors:

“Simplicity. I use the two click test to determine if software is simple. Can you get to the place you want in the system in two clicks?

Intuitive. For me intuitive is defined as - requiring no more than 15 minutes to train someone to use the main functions of the system.

Relevant EHS data. The system should be loaded with EHS data that is specifically relevant to your industry and operations; you do not want to weed through unnecessary information.

Configurable. Workflow or task management systems should be sold by module with a preset workflow (e.g. audit or incident, etc.) that is highly configurable.”

The questions focused on what buyers of EH and S software should be looking for when tendering to market. Cindy continued by stating that the solution provided by Optial and populated with convergence data achieves all of the above criteria and offers, therefore, “the features I would be looking for.”

As well as comprehensive EH and S Legal Registers the Optial convergence solutions include powerful Audit Workflow and Checklist functionality assisting companies to ensure they are at all times compliant.

The solution is currently used by some of the world’s largest organisations and can be implemented in a short timescale either on site or hosted by Optial to assist in meeting the ever increasing pressures of the regulatory environment.
