SAP Helps Customers Avoid Incidents and Achieve Safer, More Sustainable Operations

(ENP Newswire Via Acquire Media NewsEdge) ENP Newswire - 18 January 2013 Release date- 17012013 - WALLDORF - SAP today announced the SAP Incident Management rapid-deployment solution, which helps customers avoid dangerous and costly workplace accidents.

For companies today, reducing incidents that can have a devastating impact on people, profits and the environment is a priority. Executives responsible for operations and environment, health and safety (EHS) are looking to foster a preventive safety culture so that risks can be proactively identified and addressed. The new solution from SAP helps customers minimize those risks that could lead to catastrophic events and compromise business continuity.

SAP Incident Management allows organizations to quickly set up a company-wide incident management process to avoid accidents. With analytics and a dashboard to visualize data, the rapid-deployment solution guides companies through the investigative process of helping EHS and operations professionals better understand why past incidents have occurred and how to prevent future ones from reoccurring.

As a rapid-deployment solution, the incident management functionality of the SAP EHS Management application is packaged with software, pre-configured content and pre-defined services that streamline the implementation process at a fixed price and within a designated timeframe. Companies can have a full system up and running typically within 90 days with fewer costs and risks. Once this incident management solution is in place, companies can expand their operational risk management system or implement a mobile safety reporting solution to help support a more proactive safety culture.

SAP Incident Management is the latest in a line of rapid-deployment solutions designed to quickly meet safety and environmental goals in order to support sustainable operations. SAP Rapid Deployment solutions for health and safety, product and safety, stewardship, product life-cycle management and energy management are all currently available.
