Intelex and TapRooT® Partner to Offer In-Depth Root Cause Analysis

August 14th, 2018 by

In this video, hear about TapRooT®’s recent partnership with Intelex Technologies, a leading global provider of cloud-based Environmental, Health, Safety and Quality (EHSQ) management software. The integration of Intelex Technologies with TapRooT® allows customers to enter an injury in Intelex, perform a detailed root cause analysis using TapRooT®, and capture the result of the root cause analysis within Intelex. Customers are able to leverage Intelex’s powerful reporting and analytics foresight on injury and root cause data, ultimately producing better decisions and reducing the risk of repeat incidents, injuries and illnesses. The integration will also remove the administrative and record keeping hassle of managing two disparate incident and root cause analysis tools.

About the partnership, TapRooT®’s Vice President and Chief Technology Officer Dan Verlinde said, “We’re excited to establish a partnership with Intelex. TapRooT® and Intelex both create safer work places and help companies achieve operational excellence—that’s why this was an obvious opportunity to collaborate. This partnership will allow our joint customers to realize an integrated Environmental Health and Safety and Root Cause Analysis solution, while reducing duplicate effort.” And, Kristen Duda, Vice President, Strategic Alliances and Partnerships at Intelex, observed of the new integration, “This partnership provides customers with an industry-leading, integrated solution for taking their injury and root cause analysis data to the next level. By leveraging Intelex and TapRooT®, customers can drive impactful proactive safety decisions.”
