Share Article

ESS, the leading provider of Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) and Crisis Management software for Governance, Risk and Compliance (GRC), has announced the release of Essential Suite(TM) 7.0, the latest version of the company's industry-leading platform that enables global organizations to reduce complexities, risks and costs associated with operating disparate EH&S systems.

ESS software continues to be the preferred platform for global enterprises

    With the release of Essential Suite 7.0, ESS has delivered again on its commitment to provide global enterprises with the latest and most comprehensive set of EH&S and Crisis software solutions on the market - all within a single integrated platform. Many companies currently operate piecemeal software systems for EH&S compliance; many of those applications fail to eliminate time-consuming manual practices because they lack interoperability with other systems. Essential Suite enables users to seamlessly monitor and manage all of their EH&S activities at every level of the organization and meet compliance requirements under multiple regional, national or international jurisdictions. No other software provider offers the capability to consolidate all of an organization's EH&S activities enterprise-wide from a single applications hub.

Essential Suite is the complete solution that enables organizations to execute on their corporate initiatives for greenhouse gas emissions management and carbon trading, health & safety management, emergency incident management and many others. The software also helps organizations move beyond compliance, transforming EH&S data into information that creates performance-enhancing metrics that drive out operational expenses and risk.

"ESS software continues to be the preferred platform for global enterprises," said Robert Johnson, ESS President/CEO, "because organizations are under pressure to move their EH&S performance beyond mere compliance to reduce risks and costs, and achieve operational excellence. Essential Suite is the one solution that helps organizations meet or exceed those benchmarks."

Essential Suite 7.0 was developed, in part, based on feedback from ESS' worldwide client base, representing companies in a host of industries. To meet the needs of global organizations, in particular, ESS strengthened Essential Suite by adding:

-- Multilingual Localization - Essential Suite 7.0 supports more than 100 culture settings for different languages from a single instance of the software. This allows global enterprises to manage and report multilingual data enterprise-wide using one integrated system.

-- Enterprise Hierarchy - Managers can measure and communicate EH&S and Crisis Management performance from all levels of the organization to drive business process improvements that are integral for organizations to achieve operational excellence.

-- Enterprise Security - Essential Suite provides the ability to establish different access privileges at different levels of the organization in order to facilitate information sharing without compromising security.

In addition, ESS announced that the company will be providing further enhancements to Essential Suite as part of its next release (version 7.1). In response to customer demand, ESS will be introducing:

-- Essential Incident, which enables users to leverage data proactively to identify and manage incident vulnerabilities.

-- Essential Audit helps users schedule and perform field audits and inspections, develop document findings and observations and manage corrective actions.
