What is EHS Smart Start?
convergence's third offering in its CORE Suite of Country Compliance Tools is an audit and action workflow system known as EHS Smart Start. EHS Smart Start is a powerful yet simple software platform that makes it easy to manage your EHS compliance audits and corrective actions to closure, measure and report progress and performance. The underlying risk management software was designed and developed by Optial primarily for the banking and insurance sectors with prestigious customers such as the Bank of England and Standard Chartered Bank, Skandinaviska Enskilda Banken AB and the Rothschild Group. Optial, in collaboration with convergence, redesigned the system for the environmental, health and safety audit and corrective action process - keeping in mind the principles of simplicity, flexibility, intuitiveness and relevant data. This tool completes the CORE suite and provides office, retail and service sector users a foundation (a core) for a compliance program and management system.
