Welcome to VelocityEHS, a new kind of EHS software company...

  • One that helps you reach your environmental, health, safety and sustainability goals faster
  • One that delivers the most relevant cloud EHS capabilities through an easily accessible platform
  • One that is more affordable, quicker and easier to implement, and provides the simplest user experience for you and your people

Hello, I’m Glenn Trout, president and CEO of VelocityEHS.

It is very gratifying to introduce you to VelocityEHS. It is the culmination of a great journey undertaken by two proud companies, each with over 15 years of EHS software experience, each with a dedicated team of people, and each with extraordinary customers who have made the journey possible and necessary.

It’s also the start of a new journey which began in August 2014, when MSDSonline — the company I’ve led since 2000 — joined forces with EHS software solutions provider KMI, led by Matt Airhart, who joins me in delivering this inaugural message.

We knew something special was taking place. KMI and MSDSonline are companies that operate based on a few simple but decisive principles: beginning with “simple” matters, “easy-to-use” matters, “customer engagement” matters, “hiring great people” matters, “understanding your needs and partnering with you” matters, “the environment” matters, “safety” matters, “sustainability” matters, “your business and performance” matter. These aren’t just words, they are the foundation of what matters most to all of us.

At the time of the acquisition we believed, and have proven in the last year, that our people, products and services are even better together than they are on their own. Together, we are a better company today than we were a year ago. And together, with your input and support, we’ve increased the breadth and the scope of our capabilities to help you solve your broader EHS needs.

Which brings us back to our new name...

For everyone at MSDSonline and KMI, our names have been our promises to you. They have signified the partnerships between hundreds of employees, thousands of customers, and millions of users. So they are not easy to walk away from. Nevertheless, we embarked on a rebranding project to find a new name that more accurately communicates who we have become together… one that is completely focused on helping you achieve your environment, health, safety and sustainability goals faster. And while we are the largest and fastest-growing EHS software company with a broader global reach than ever before, we will continue to be your partner to ensure that we are all working from a clear set of business objectives that not only deliver value but empower you to be EHS leaders.

That's why we are now VelocityEHS.

Over the next few months we will phase in our new brand across all of our offices, products and services. At the same time, we will retain the MSDSonline name to serve as a product brand for our chemical management capabilities under the VelocityEHS umbrella.

We felt the need to evolve because EHS challenges have become more complex, regulations more capricious, and you have told us that you need easier ways to get the hard work done. You need tools that drive engagement throughout your organization and that people want to use because their value are self-evident. You want a carrot, not a stick. It’s time for a simple solution that makes enterprise-level EHS functionality accessible and affordable. It’s time to take EHS in a new direction!

In other words, the name is new, but we still have your back. We are committed to delivering unparalleled support and providing you with expert advice and best-practice approaches to solving your complex EHS challenges. We are more committed than ever to helping you achieve your EHS and sustainability objectives. Our goal is to deliver the most complete, the most user friendly, and the quickest and easiest-to-implement EHS, sustainability and risk management platform on the planet…

Our name is VelocityEHS.
