We live in a world, where environmental protection and sustainability play an important role. Today, governments and enterprises pay close attention to EHS issues, putting a lot of effort into the improvement of the business sustainability, workers’ health conditions, and safety performances in the workplace.
Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) is a set of processes, rules, standards, and regulations aimed at the protection of the environment, company employees, and society from any damage.
Softengi developed a comprehensive EHS software solution for Enviance, an EHS software vendor, which was serving more than 400 clients globally. In 2020, Enviance was acquired by Cority, a major EHS management vendor and one of market leaders, according to Vendantix. Both companies focus on management of companies’ EHS performance and environmental compliance.
During a long partnership with Enviance, more than 17 years, Softengi designed a complex cloud-based solution, which involves emission tracking, waste management, incident management, as well as environmental compliance tools to enhance companies EHS performance. Among Enviance clients were such major enterprises as Walmart, DuPont, Chevron, Valero, Syngenta, and AEP.

Air Emission Management System
Using data mining technology, the software tracks and monitors air emissions, identifying problematic areas and anomalies in real-time. On the basis of the input data, which can be gathered from various sensors or from internal document systems, the operational model can estimate emissions, identify warning signs of potential issues, allowing to preemptively resolve them before they occur, significantly reducing human intervention.
Wastewater Management System
The Enviance software provides a wastewater management solution to better maintain and sustain asset infrastructure. The solution provides access to all water and wastewater data visualised on one centralized platform, which allows companies to get a better overview of wastewater management, and thereby find ways to significantly reduce the wastage of water by performing balances and analyzing output and consumption in real time.
Incident Management System
The environment management software also includes an incident management system, which allows to effectively perform such tasks as a proactive prediction of incidents, in-depth incident analysis, and root-cause assessment. Moreover, the system is able to find the most suitable corrective actions for each specific case.
Waste Management System
The embedded waste management system tracks companies’ waste generation, its storage, and disposal of hazardous wastes. The system helps to efficiently manage waste collection and its utilization by automating service management, logistics, and invoicing.
GHG and Carbon Management System
Reducing the output of greenhouse emissions is one of the main priorities of most companies today. The in-build carbon management system allows to track greenhouse emissions across entire enterprises, analyze companies’ carbon footprint, and discover new ways to significantly cut the emissions.

Health and Safety Compliance Management System
Taking care not only of environmental compliance, but also health and safety of people, the Enviance’s software provides health and safety compliance management, which allows to improve sustainability of health and safety performances in the workplace by constantly tracking employees’ health and their safety compliance in the workfield.
The in-build SARA/TRI Software analyzes relaxation data and provides in-depth reports on Toxics Release Inventory (TRI), allowing companies to improve their emissions.
Advanced Audit Platform
The advanced audit platform allows to perform customized audits, ensuring companies’ operations are in compliance with all regulations and permits. The system offers formalized audits on a large scale with simplified recordkeeping and reporting tools.
The environment management software of Enviance includes an inspection app, which provides automated repeating inspections of companies’ performance with tailored checksheets and integration with other modules to promptly identify risks, always comply with constantly changing requirements, and prevent incidents before they occur.
Developing a product in such a complex field as environment and sustainability requires in-depth tech and business expertises of the development team to create a high-quality solution. Our collaboration with Eviance in the development of the emissions tracking and environment monitoring system has resulted in many new company’s users, among which are well-known global players such as Chevron, Walmart, DuPont, Syngenta, and AEP. That proves that the Enviance’s software provides a high value to its customers, is effective and easy-to-use, and most importantly one of the best on its market.
