Executive Summary

This report contains an extract of the Verdantix analysis of the chemical and hazardous waste management functionality of twenty EHS software applications. 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 13 assessment criteria, the Verdantix benchmark of chemical and hazardous waste management functionality finds that Sphera stands out in the market with a score of 87% of the total potential score in this area. VelocityEHS is the joint market leader on chemical management functionality with a strong mobile offering. Enablon, ERA Environmental and Enviance also have solid offerings. Due to the small number of vendors with strong chemical and hazardous waste functionality customers should buy from specialists.
