Environmental Data Management, LLC (www.edm-usa.com), a software company specializing in environmental management software, has designed and released two products targeted at small to mid-sized industrial clients. Software to manage environmental compliance is not new, but has typically been reserved for only the largest of corporations. EDM is finding smaller companies with strong environmental philosophies are ready to establish formal environmental management systems that reduce their impact on the environment and EDM has created products and services that cater to their need.
One reason for this trend is the overwhelming groundswell of public awareness of environmental protection issues and companies are responding with tactics that show they are operating responsibly. In many cases, it is the marketing department that is driving these decisions to move towards improved environmental performance. It is good business to be “green” and companies are spending more to demonstrate their commitment to the environment, compliance with regulations and going above and beyond the minimum requirements.
Additionally, rapidly progressing software and internet technologies have made it easier for companies like EDM to develop, market and sell products that are “within reach” for smaller organizations. Until recently, these types of environmental management software applications could only delivered by the big software development companies at huge price tags. “No more”, says EDM’s National Director of Sales and Marketing, Joe C. Holmes. “These clients have been under-served when it comes these types of management tools and we help them operate like the big guys.” Joe continues, “Environmental and safety departments for mid-market industry have always struggled for funding and support for initiative that go beyond what is only required by the regulatory agencies. But when their customers start demanding better environmental performance, the landscape changes and suddenly there are new reasons to invest in these departments.”
