The Problem

In today's business environment, EHS and sustainability challenges are complex, and regulatory and reporting requirements rigorous. Companies are looking for better and more efficient ways to get the hard work done and are demanding more from their EHS software systems.

Unfortunately, many legacy solutions are overly complicated, slow and risky to implement, cumbersome to use, and they rarely deliver their intended value. You need an EHS solution that drives engagement throughout your organization and that your people want to use because its value is self-evident. It’s time for a simple solution that makes enterprise-level EHS functionality accessible and affordable. It’s time to take EHS in a new direction!

Our Solution

MSDSonline acquired Canada-based KMI in August 2014. With its focus on ease of use and solving complex business challenges in simple ways, KMI was a natural fit for MSDSonline. We’ve increased the breadth and the scope of our capabilities to help you solve your broader EHS needs.

Together, as VelocityEHS, our vision includes building lasting relationships with customers, and delivering faster, better implementations that are more intuitive and successful than traditional enterprise software systems. By collecting better data, delivering greater visibility, and providing powerful analytics and reporting tools, VelocityEHS can help you control risk and improve performance across your EHS, chemical management, compliance, and sustainability programs.
