Independent research firm Verdantix has recognized eVision and Enablon as leaders in the growing Operational Risk Management (ORM) market, in the first ever benchmark of ORM software vendors. The report recognizes Wolters Kluwer’s Enablon and eVision for having the strongest market momentum in the industry.

Enablon and eVision joined forces in October 2018 after eVision’s acquisition by Wolters Kluwer. Together, they address customers’ needs for a holistic process for control of environmental, health & safety and operational risks.

The Verdantix Green Quadrant Operational Risk Management Software 2019 sees the complementarity of both solutions as a strong asset, offering a broad range of functionalities. Verdantix also notes that together, Enablon and eVision scored highest among 17 companies in 16 of the 30 assessed capabilities, including:

  • Platform User Interface (Enablon), a rare perfect score
  • Alternative User Interface (eVision), offering digital diagrams ad geospatial mapping
  • Platform Design (Enablon)
  • Process Safety Management (Enablon), including modules for compliance audits, incident management, emergency response, management of change, pre-start-up safety management and process hazard analysis
  • Job Hazard Analysis (eVision)
  • Isolation Management (eVision)
  • Permit to Work (eVision)
  • Mechanical Integrity (Enablon)

“We are very pleased to be named leaders in the Operational Risk Management software market,” says Chris Joseph, CEO of Enablon and eVision. “Our combined strengths and global reach make Enablon and eVision extremely well-placed to support customers in asset-intensive and high-risk industries. With our software, they are able to cover all risk, safety, and compliance programs and workflows, from the corporate level, down to the operational plant level and even the individual asset and worker.”

“It is an exciting time to be in this industry. Technology offers us the possibilities to transform the way risks are managed: from reporting to predicting and preventing incidents in real-time. Innovation is at the core of both our businesses. We will continue to leverage the latest digital trends such as advanced analytics and Artificial Intelligence to help our customers increase operational excellence, avoid environmental accidents and ensure the safety of their workforce,” says Joseph.

This vision is reflected in Verdantix’ advice for software buyers:

  • Operations managers looking to get the full value from innovative technologies for ORM
  • Large enterprises seeking a leading process safety solution and needing to manage high levels of operational complexity
  • Firms with high-risk profiles

The easy-to-use and highly configurable eVision and Enablon software platforms are available in the cloud and on-premise, depending on customers’ requirements.
