KONE, a global leader in elevator and escalator installation, maintenance and modernization, has implemented KMI’s Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) Software Suite to help achieve key objectives as part of its on-going roadmap to EH&S Excellence. KONE sites in over 50 countries worldwide now have access to KMI’s Incident Management, Audit & Inspection, Compliance Management, Corrective Action and Reporting & Dashboards modules as part of its global EH&S Management Information System (EMIS).
“KONE is focused on transforming its culture into a world class EH&S performer and understands the value of an effective enterprise EH&S management system,” says Jamie Messerschmidt, Regional EH&S Director for North America, KONE. “KMI’s ability to provide such a complete and effective solution within our limited budget and constrained timeline ultimately made KMI the perfect partner for us. The system is flexible, easy for our employees to use and it just plain works, which has been crucial to the success of this project.”
The configurability of the KMI EH&S Software Suite provides KMI the ability to deliver tailored solutions to organizations in diverse industries, meeting more requirements at a lower cost. The speed and accuracy with which system workflows, forms, security and notifications can be configured allowed KMI to deploy the system KONE needed faster than any other enterprise EH&S software provider. KMI’s relentless focus on interface design and the end user experience meant that minimal end user training was required prior to system rollout. This not only helped speed the implementation timeline but also significantly reduced overall project costs.
“The KMI software suite will be a critical aid in KONE’s EH&S program,” says Matt Airhart, Director of Business Development, KMI “It was clear that KONE had made significant gains in employee culture towards health and safety performance, environmental stewardship, and continuously improving the EH&S programs within the organization. Now KONE employees will have the tools they need to make managing these programs more efficient and effective.”
