3 Simple Ways to Get Started with EHS Software

For companies looking to ensure compliance and reduce risk, EHS software is the obvious answer. EHS software offers flexible tools to manage all your compliance, risk, and sustainability data and activities. But for many organizations, the idea of actually implementing a new system can be daunting. Many people mistakenly believe that getting started with EHS software requires a huge investment of time and resources. Fortunately, getting started with EHS software doesn’t have to be complicated or time consuming.

Here are 3 simple ideas to get off the ground:

1) Track tasks, deadlines, and documents:

When tasks and due dates are spread out across multiple spreadsheets, it’s easy to miss a deadline. Many customers start out by entering their permit deadlines and other obligations into ComplyStation’s centralized calendar. It’s an easy way to keep track of all your activities in one place. You can even attach documents so that everyone who needs them has easy access and nothing gets lost. Our customers track all kinds of date-driven activities like report deadlines, sampling events, and scheduled audits.

2) Get alerts, trigger tasks, and escalations:

For example, instead of having to check your spreadsheets or calendar for permit deadlines, Lisam’s software can be configured to send you email alerts when something needs your attention. It can also be set up to trigger specific tasks based on custom criteria you determine, or escalate missed deadlines based on rules you set. This eliminates a lot of manual work (and headaches) out of remembering deadlines and frees you up for more important tasks.

3) Use basic dashboards and reports:

While Lisam ComplyStation does have the capability to create sophisticated custom reports and personalized dashboards, you don’t need to dive into those features right away. Instead, you can use basic preset dashboards to visualize your data in real time. Or, use report templates to generate fully formatted reports with just a click.

Your next steps

As you can see, getting started with EHS software doesn’t have to be time consuming or complicated. These are just a few of the ways our customers choose to get started with EHS software.
