Environmental Journal Recognizes Firms for Business Achievement in Growth, M&A, Technology and Innovation
Environmental Business Journal®* (EBJ), a business research publication which provides high value strategic business intelligence to the environmental industry, has honored BSI Consulting with a Business Achievement Award for Technology Merit: Emergency Preparedness App in 2021. This award was made possible with the support of ReadyKey, a division of Guidebook.
“In a year of economic recovery in 2021 that still posed its own challenges, it is a testament to the resilience of the environmental industry and its leaders in business and innovation to have such a fine constellation of winners of the annual EBJ Awards,” said Grant Ferrier, president of Environmental Business International Inc. (EBI, Inc.), publisher of Environmental Business Journal®
BSI Consulting was recognized for developing an EHS Preparedness Mobile App with a global food and beverage organization seeking to access emergency action plans, responders, their roles and contact information – as well as a seamless method of keeping this information up to date. In the absence of market-ready solutions, BSI Consulting worked with the client’s EHS, IT, and Enterprise Architecture teams to integrate critical design elements, as well as a third-party developer to design a solution. The solution had client branding in both IOS and Android app stores, quick access to Significant Incident workflows, broad accessibility, easy management of change, speed-to-deploy solution (12-24 weeks), human resources information system integration, and SSO (Single Sign On) compatibility. “EHS organizations are running leaner and leaner – necessitating innovative approaches that build trust and inspire confidence. Our three-party partnership approach – client, technology partner, and BSI consulting – provided the opportunity to think outside of the box and deliver a scalable, repeatable solution to replace a long-standing, analogue industry standard,” said Jacob Zollinger, National Practice Director, Information Solutions. “It’s been an exciting journey to support BSI and their clientele on their project to innovate Emergency Preparedness. They’ve embraced mobile and the opportunity it presents with remarkable agility for such large and renowned organizations,” said Stewart Price, President of Sales & Marketing at Guidebook and Co-Founder of ReadyKey.
