Enablon and TapRooT® Partner to Deliver Expert Incident Management and Investigation in EHS Operations

A first in the EHS industry: Connecting market-leading Enablon EHS management software with world-class Root Cause Analysis methodology
February 28, 2018— Enablon, a Wolters Kluwer business, and TapRooT®, each world leaders in EHS Operations, announce a partnership today that will enable their customers to be even more efficient in preventing incidents and maximizing safety. With a connector between both software platforms, customers can track and trend incidents in the Enablon solution and perform the Root Cause Analysis with TapRooT® without duplicating efforts. The partnership is the first of its kind in the EHS industry.

Leading companies around the world use the TapRooT® process and software to investigate and fix the root causes of major accidents, incidents and near-misses. Many of the same companies rely on Enablon to ensure EHS compliance and risk management.

“Combining our expertise and connecting our platforms will make a real difference to our customers.  Incident data will be automatically synchronized, making the root cause analysis process easier and more efficient, and allowing action plans to be launched much faster,” said Dan Verlinde, Vice President and Chief Technology Officer of TapRooT®.

“The contribution TapRooT® Incident investigators can now bring to their companies is significant and goes far beyond efficiency in understanding the root cause and acting upon it,” said Taylor Allis, Vice President of Product at Enablon. “It increases production effectiveness and reduces cost, which in turn adds business value to companies. At Enablon, we continuously work on innovating our solution to better assist our customers in making a difference. We do this not only through adding new features or applications but also by working with other recognized expert providers. The technology partnership with TapRooT® allows us to do just that.”

The Enablon-TapRooT® connector is available for customers using the Enablon 8.4 or 8.6 and Taproot 6.3 software versions.
