How SPF EMEA Will Help Your EHS & GRC Software Selection Process

May 28, 2018

SPF EMEA is next week in Paris, and will feature sessions geared towards Enablon clients, and also towards organizations that are in an EHS or GRC software selection process. If you need to learn how to demonstrate the ROI of a technology solution, effectively build a business case for a software system, and select the best solution for you, SPF EMEA has got you covered! Here’s how SPF EMEA will help you with your software selection process.

Understand the Importance of Driving User Adoption

The value of an EHS or GRC software investment depends greatly on user adoption. As part of the software selection process, you must also consider how you will drive user adoption, to make sure that value is maximized, and to ensure that the business case stays solid.

SPF EMEA will feature a panel discussion about structured approaches to manage change and accelerate user adoption, remove barriers, and pave the way for generating the greatest possible value from an EHS or GRC software investment. Panelists will be from five different organizations, which will give you unique perspectives on user adoption. In addition to Enablon, the following firms will also be represented on the panel:

  • Lendlease, a multinational construction, property and infrastructure company.
  • Arcadis, a global design & consultancy firm for natural and built assets.
  • Bekaert, a world market and technology leader in steel wire transformation and coating technologies.
  • Golder, a global organization providing consulting, design, and construction services.

Learn How to Show the Value of a Software Investment

Securing funding for an EHS or GRC software solution is a challenge. The best way to overcome the challenge is by showing a return on investment, based on expected operational, financial and performance improvements. Enablon turned to Forrester to develop an exhaustive methodology to establish a long-term ROI of software solutions. The model is designed to provide executives and senior leadership with the information needed to effectively build a solid business case for enterprise software. You can familiarize yourself with this model during one of the sessions and learn how to use it in your own company.

Verdantix is an independent research and consulting firm that produced the Green Quadrant EHS Software 2017 report, which is available for free from our website.

Drawing on an extensive expertise built over many years and a wealth of knowledge regarding the EHS software market, David will share best practices for successfully selecting a software solution. Key takeaways include:
