Training Workshop - How to Select the Right EHS&S Software to Achieve Your Business Goals

Jackson, Third Floor

 

Purchasing a new software system is similar to buying a house – you don't do it often. Therefore, having clear expectations and getting tips from experts will increase the chances of a positive ROI and being happy with your purchase. Following proven best practices and processes while selecting software can reduce the chance of failure and undesired costs. In this session, you will be trained on requirements identification/prioritization, gap assessment, understanding total cost of ownership, making the business case, creating a roadmap and then evaluating vendors and negotiating with them.

Training Workshop - Do's and Don'ts for User Adoption and Successful Software Implementation

Jackson, Third Floor

 

After you have selected the right software platform, the next step is to properly deploy your desired system. Considering non-technical aspects is more important than you think. Attendees will learn that promoting user adoption and utilization of the selected platform are greater indicators for success than the actual technical configuration. This session will address how early engagement from many levels of users in the organization, continuous engagement, addressing their fears proactively and managing the complexities associated with change are imperative for the proper adoption and future utilization of the selected platform.
