Dakota Software Redefines EHS Business Intelligence with the Launch of Dakota Insights
Cleveland, OH – Dakota Software, a leading provider of Environmental, Health, and Safety (EHS) and Environmental, Social, Governance (ESG) management software, announced today the release of Dakota Insights, an advanced Business Intelligence (BI) platform that unifies and enhances its award-winning ProActivity® Suite of products.
EHS professionals are responsible for the safety of workers, mitigation of environmental impacts, and compliance with complex and frequently changing regulations. They depend on data to make informed decisions but, according to the “Verdantix EHS Software Green Quadrant," more than 70% say they lack quality data and nearly 60% say the cost of analytics projects outweigh the benefits. The increasing volume of data collected via mobile devices, connected workers, and monitored equipment has the potential to exacerbate the issue if EHS leaders aren’t equipped with tools to manage and understand that data.
Dakota Insights helps address these challenges by translating EHS data into actionable indicators for measuring compliance, performance, and risk. It includes pre-made visualizations of established EHS metrics, such as TRIR (Total Recordable Injury Rate), as well as advanced indicators for measuring regulatory preparedness and compliance status across facilities, business units, and geographies.
“Decision-support has always been central to our mission,” said Reg Shiverick, president of Dakota Software. “Our patented Parametric Filtering™, which allows our users to intuitively explore and analyze their operational incident and action tracking data, was introduced in 2002. Dakota Insights takes our business intelligence capabilities to the next level, allowing our users to unlock the analytical power of their data across products, locations, and date ranges. Coupled with our regulatory content-driven ProActivity Suite, Insights provides a holistic view of EHS performance and enables true end-to-end EHS management.”
Dakota Insights delivers management-level business intelligence while taking the burden off of in-house Information Technology (IT) resources. It features “drag-and-drop” editors that allow users to easily build customized dashboards and reduce overall reporting time. Insights’ dashboards and KPIs can be shared with stakeholders throughout an organization, helping to increase visibility into performance and embed EHS excellence into company culture.
