    Why Read EHS Software Reviews Before Purchasing?

    Like many safety-conscious organizations, you’re in the market for EHS software. After all, your EHS team has a lot to handle in a single day. If you want them to do their best work, you need to make their jobs easier.

    The trick is finding the right EHS software for the job – and knowing how to cut through the marketing spiel to find a software that truly works for you and your team.

    This is where EHS software reviews come in handy. Here are three reasons why you ought to read them.

    EHS Software Reviews Are Social Proof

    First and foremost, EHS software reviews are a form of social proof. This is normally discussed as a benefit for the vendor, but in reality, it’s just as much a benefit for customers.

    Think of it this way.

    You’re buying a product online. But it’s more than just a product. It’s something that will be fundamental to the way your EHS team operates, and as a consequence, their ability to protect your employees. In that case, it’s absolutely critical to ensure you get the right investment.

    The trick, of course, is knowing which software is worth a closer look.

    This is where reviews are essential. Reviews are a chance for customers to provide honest opinions about how a software helps (or doesn’t help).

    Hear Honest Commentary on Features

    If you’re looking into EHS software, a big part of your consideration are the features. If manners maketh man, features maketh software, especially safety software.

    The problem, of course, is obvious: all vendors are going to trumpet the power and efficacy of their features. You know a marketing spiel when you see one, but a marketing spiel isn’t going to give you a straight answer.

    If you want helpful feedback, turn to customer reviews.

    Customer reviews are the place where customers who have actually used the features can speak honestly to their functionality. And chances are, if a customer is leaving a review, it’s because the feature made a strong impression – either a very good one or a very bad one. That makes reviews a gold mine of honest feature information.

    A Test Drive–Before You Test Drive

    How do you determine your safety ROI before you make the investment? One  way to do that is with reviews. 

    Reviews are left by customers who have already used the software and can speak to their experience. Think of them like your unpaid, unplanned beta testers – the people who test the software before you have to get on the phone and do a demo. Plus, these reviewers are also EHS professionals, which means they’re highly equipped to speak to the efficacy of a software solution.

    If you like what you see in the reviews, then the software is worth a closer look.

    Some EHS software companies even provide free trials. This is another great way to determine if an investment is right for your department.
