    Incident Management Software: Turning Incident Data into Insights

    Incident prevention should always be a top priority for any business. With work-related injuries occurring daily, the need for incident reporting has increased. But incident data alone is not enough. Having a system in place that turns data into actionable results is what counts in order to reduce – and eliminate – workplace incidents.

    Less Is More and More Is Less

    The old saying about "less is more" can be applied to the concept of incidents and incident intelligence. The less you have in place to prevent incidents, the more time and money you’ll end up spending. Likewise, if you invest in a system that is more likely to reduce incidents, there will inevitably be less need for spending. So, in fact, higher incident intelligence leads to fewer downtime, not more.

    What is recommended is a fool-proof system that works. Incident management software cuts to the core of the problem by developing a real-time actionable intelligence plan that is needed whenever and wherever an incident is reported. Solving the problem is much easier when you use incident management software. It helps improve business performance quicker than it would take you to handle the issue via a spreadsheet-based system.

    2. Incident management software not only records and analyzes each incident, but also helps you plan the optimal response, before the problem becomes too big to handle.
