This is a Game Changer
Already recognized as having the most comprehensive EHSQ solution, Cority has been investing heavily in advancing the capabilities of its platform as well as expanding the breadth of its offerings. This has been accelerated with the recent addition of Quality and Waste Management offerings as well as a more robust Environmental Compliance solution.
One of the most valuable aspects of this approach is that we’ve reduced the time, expense, and difficulties that organizations face when adopting technology to drive a culture of safety and sustainability.
By delivering on a mobile-first platform, Cority has created a solution that enables you to deploy
your EHSQ end-user (or portal) solution in a way that compounds the savings and efficiencies you’d realize over a traditional enterprise software deployment. If that’s not enough of an incentive to move to a mobile-first EHS solution, below are my top 5 reasons:
5 Reasons Business Leaders Should Go Mobile-First
1. No Need to Invest in New Hardware
You can use the hardware you have now: mobile-first solutions reduce and can eliminate the need for organizations to select, deploy, and invest in new hardware. The application is accessed through a web browser. How simple is that?
2. Employees Like Using It!
As you know, the real benefits of EHSQ solutions come with wide-spread adoption and usage. Our new mobile-first platform provides a user-friendly, intuitive interface that is built upon Google’s guidelines with UI/UX best practices. Since users have the same experience whether they login through their desktop, tablet, or smartphone, they are familiar with the look and feel, which leads to further adoption. Getting them up and running quickly also saves on training and deployment costs.
3. The Strain on Your IT Team is Significantly Reduced
Most EHSQ and other enterprise software providers deliver mobility through native apps ( i.e. one which is downloaded through an app store). The deployment of native apps across an organization requires device standardization, ensuring operating systems are current, and that the app is tested before its deployed. This is not a “one-time” initiative. Every time the hardware manufacturer or software provider updates its technology (device and/or operating system), your IT team must perform their due diligence, too. A mobile-first solution reduces the strain on your IT team without compromising data privacy and security.
On average, companies are deploying between 8 and 15 apps to their employees.

4. Transparency Leads to Better Decision-Making
The deployment of a SaaS solution allows organizations to re-examine existing business processes and to enhance them to meet best practices as they automate their workflows. Replacing home grown, Excel, and/or paper-based solutions drives operational efficiencies across the organization. According to a recent Aberdeen Report, organizations with mobile solutions saw improvements such as:
- 21% in time-to-decision over the past two years
- 19% in the cycle time of key business processes
- 83% in internal schedule compliance
- 15% in operating margins.
Standardized mobile workflows provide immediate access to data and allow for instant updates to task status. Your organization will benefit from decreased risk of violations, non-compliance, and incidents. As data is collected, it feeds directly into our EHSQ platform to provide insight at a glance and improve decision making. The platform is built so that your IT team is able to integrate other enterprise solutions such as SAP into Cority to increase the value and use of your EHSQ data in Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and other initiatives.
5. 100% of Our Development Efforts are Aimed at Advancing Your Agenda
Cority reinvests more of its annual recurring revenue into R&D than most established enterprise software vendors. Funds go towards developing Cority and are not split into three or more development streams (a main application, an iPhone enabled app, and/or a Google enabled app). THIS IS HUGE. Just look at the numbers of the efforts and costs associated with maintaining multiple workstreams:
Companies pursuing multiple development paths need to also prioritize development. Core applications will need to be completed prior to mobile applications. Mobile applications are built to the device manufacturer’s specs which can impact the presentation of the workflow. Mobile apps often lag core functionality updates which in turn delay the overall impact of the efficiencies and benefits your organization has been promised. This becomes an unsustainable effort for both parties.
With a mobile-first approach, each team member is always on the latest version of the application. This allows you a huge competitive advantage when it comes to embracing EHSQ initiatives and driving a culture of safety and sustainability.
