Executive Summary

This report contains an extract of the Verdantix analysis of the safety, incident and risk features and functionality of twenty EHS software applications. This analysis was originally produced in the Verdantix Green Quadrant EHS Software 2017 report. The majority of EHS decision-makers prefer the idea of purchasing a single, integrated software application to cover all EHS workflows. But factors such as unique industry-specific requirements, limited usage scenarios for software or constrained budgets may push them to make purchase decisions based primarily on specific ‘must have’ functional requirements. Based on 29 assessment criteria, the Verdantix benchmark on safety, incident and risk management finds that Enablon stands out in the market with a score of 77% of the maximum potential score in this area. Intelex, SAI Global, and Sphera are strong seconds for ‘total safety, incident and risk’ functionality,  each with 71% of the maximum potential score. Cority, VelocityEHS and Gensuite also have solid offerings. Due to a strong abundance of safety and risk options, buyers should assess application design quality.
