EHS Visioning

EHS Visioning

Doing business in our current age of compliance is a complex job—especially for global organizations.

If your organization has invested in SAP Environment, Health & Safety Management (EHSM) to rein in compliance risks, Linx-AS can help. Our Vision Methodology™ for EHS lays out a strategic approach to implementing the breadth of functionality available in the enterprise solution, ensuring best-practice business process and logistics integration. Designed for EHS and IT leadership, this accelerated planning process delivers a system roadmap to drive proactive management of regulatory and compliance issues.

Vision Methodology for Environment, Health, and Safety is the product of both our EHSM and SAP consulting experience that reaches back into the late 1990s. In our work with clients over the years, a formula for planning and project success has emerged, and Linx-AS has since packaged these best practices in a structured process, which includes:

  • Evaluating the pain points across a business process or set of processes
  • Prioritizing the requirements in incremental yet strategic projects that are practical for IT organizations to implement
  • Establishing phase-gate success metrics for each project, so the ensuing project can be released
