Executive Summary

This report represents an extract of the Verdantix analysis of the environmental compliance capabilities of 23 environment, health and safety (EHS) software vendors. This analysis originally was conducted as part of the recent Green Quadrant assessment process for EHS Software (see Verdantix Green Quadrant EHS Software 2019). To help senior EHS executives identify the best-fit software, this software benchmark provides a detailed analysis of capabilities available from 23 EHS software vendors across 21 assessment criteria for environmental compliance management. The report finds that three software vendors - Enviance, Intelex and Enablon - have the broadest and deepest functionalities for environmental compliance management. To ensure maximum benefits, buyers should test calculation engines with large, real world data sets and automate data collection and analytics to strengthen the value proposition of the software.
