Radnor, Pennsylvania, UNITED STATES

CHICAGO, Feb. 03, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- VelocityEHS, a leading cloud environmental, health, safety (EHS) and sustainability platform provider, announced today its recent recognition in Verdantix’s Green Quadrant: EH&S Software 2016. VelocityEHS stood out as the top-scoring firm for Chemical Management and Management of Change (MOC). The analysis named the VelocityEHS platform the number one EHS software for chemical management and suggested that customers planning significant change management or those looking to improve incident, near miss and CAPA management should shortlist VelocityE­HS.

In September 2015, MSDSonline and Knowledge Management Innovations (KMI), two of the most respected EHS and sustainability software providers, came together to form VelocityEHS. The name reflects the company’s focus on speed of implementation and its simple approach to solving complex EHS challenges. Echoing that focus, the Verdantix report identified VelocityEHS as one of the companies with the greatest momentum based on a range of strategic success metrics. With more than 11,000 customers around the world and 8 million users from virtually every industry, VelocityEHS is the largest and most trusted cloud EHS solution.

“Our focus is on helping our customers reach their EHS goals faster,” said Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS. “We work under the belief that if our software is easy, people will actually use it, which means you’ll start seeing the benefits much quicker.  The momentum scores we have achieved in the latest Green Quadrant report reflect that customers want cloud solutions that are more affordable, quicker and easier to implement, and provide the simplest, most engaging user experience.”

In addition to top scores for Chemical Management and MOC, VelocityEHS also received a perfect score for customer version adoption, which measures how many customers are on the latest version of the software.

Trout added, “As reflected in the report, we’re a true cloud company so all of our customers get the benefit of our latest product releases as soon as they become available. With a number of our competitors’ products, implementation is expensive and cumbersome as is updating to newer versions.  Because of that pain, their customers often avoid updates for as long as possible, resulting in them missing needed functionality.  By contrast, all of our customers are on our latest version.”

The VelocityEHS comprehensive suite of solutions includes Incident Management, Audits & Inspections, SDS & Chemical Management, Risk Analysis, MOC, Corrective Actions, Performance Metrics, Training Content and Training Management.

The Verdantix report ‘Green Quadrant: EH&S Software 2016’ is the only independent benchmark of EH&S software available on the market. Visit to learn more about how VelocityEHS’s simple solutions are making enterprise-level EHS functionality accessible and affordable to businesses of all sizes.
