Executive Summary

This report helps corporate managers at small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) understand the most impactful use cases for environment, health and safety (EHS) software solutions and evaluate their relevancy to their own EHS operations. The rise of Industry 4.0 has left SMEs wondering how to maximize the impact of their technology investments. Implementing EHS management software applications can catalyse profound positive impacts, but with limited budgets, SME stakeholders must gain an idea of which solution will give the most value for money. This report identifies six EHS software use cases that provide the most profound positive effect on SMEs: digitizing auditing and inspection processes, effective closed-loop management of the incident life cycle, solidifying compliance workflows, providing on-demand and accessible digital training resources, increasing the visibility into integrated risk management and maximizing safety culture engagement amongst workers.
