Developing a strategic Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) Management Information System (MIS) direction enables organizations to move forward with EHS MIS projects that support overall management system objectives and core business drivers. E2 has developed a strategic planning process that quickly and effectively identifies and prioritizes near and long-term EHS MIS initiatives based on need, as well as develops realistic scheduling and budgetary estimates.
Our process is designed to extract unique organizational knowledge from key stakeholders, and marry that information with E2 ’s extensive experience in the EHS MIS market. The result is an effective, actionable plan that will serve as the blueprint for ongoing EHS MIS development.
E2 ’s EHS MIS strategic planning deliverables may contain any or all of the following:
Strategic recommendations on management of multiple EHS business process within a single or consolidated number of software solutions
Recommendations on optimization of EHS business processes
Specific recommendations on the fate of existing EHS software solutions
Opportunities for integration with existing systems
Vision/blueprint of an optimized state of EHS information management
E2 has developed numerous proprietary tools and processes that facilitate the strategic planning process.
After completing the strategic plan and establishing Environmental Health & Safety (EHS) Management Information Systems (MIS) main concerns, the priority topics are typically addressed in detail. The E2 detailed design process involves defining requirements, assessing solution options, further defining economics, and documenting the design. Depending on client specific needs, E2 will focus on a design for a single EHS topic or multiple EHS topics concurrently.
Similar to the E2 strategic planning process, the EHS MIS detailed design process is designed to extract unique organizational knowledge, and marry that information with E2 ’s extensive EHS MIS marketplace experience. Our design process will provide an organization with:
In-depth understanding of EHS topic specific business processes
Definition of functional requirements jump started by the use of proprietary tools and E2 ’s market knowledge
Definition of technical requirements
Identification and in-depth review of current technology utilized to facilitate information management within discussed EHS business processes
E2 tailors detailed design deliverables to client needs and will provide any or all of the following services as appropriate within the detailed design process:
Coordination/facilitation of vendor demonstrations including client/project-specific vendor demonstration guidance and scripts, evaluation forms, and workshops
Request for proposal (RFP) preparation and support, vendor licensing negotiations
Cost/benefit analysis utilizing E2 proprietary methods to quantify both direct and indirect benefits
E2 ’s unique detailed design services allow companies to quickly address priority topics in sufficient design detail to immediately and rapidly begin building the system.
Solution Design and Architecture Definition Services
Based on more than a decade of consulting, E2 has observed that successful implementations require up-front domain specific work flow planning which “systems” professionals or software vendors are unable to provide. Further, implementations that lack this domain-based planning and issue identification have resulted in significantly less successful implementations and deployments. E2 ’s ‘Architecture Definition’ process allows for proper gap identification and uncovers issues that need to be addressed during the implementation. This process will result in an implementation plan that will ensure a successful implementation prior to system build. The Architecture Definition steps can include one or more of the following:
Current User Workflow Analysis
Data Source Mapping
Desktop Pilot Testing
Gap Analysis and Resolution
The intent of these activities is to identify and provide resolution early in the implementation process for any gaps between the crucial, symbiotic relationship of People, Process, and Technology.
One of E2's core businesses is implementation services. E2 uses an implementation methodology that has been refined over many years of implementing EMIS business solutions. Our staff is comprised of EHS business professionals, IT professionals, as well as individuals who have considerable experience in both realms. Drawing from this diverse knowledge base, E2 has developed an implementation methodology that is uniquely tailored to the deployment of EHS information management systems.
E2 provides end-to-end management of EHS solution implementations. Our staff is uniquely qualified to manage implementations of any size or duration. Depending on your level of participation or role in a project, the implementation may have differing meanings. The diagram below expresses a high-level overview of our implementation methodology. This view is generally intended for EHS business professionals. IT professionals may be more interested on our Implementation Details.
At E2 we take great pride in having a very comprehensive implementation methodology that is specifically tailored to EHS solution implementations. The E2 methodology evolved over many years of experience with EHS solutions.
