In May 2017, independent research firm Verdantix recognized iPoint’s customer Emerson with an Environment, Health & Safety (EH&S) Innovation Award. The multinational technology and engineering company headquartered in St. Louis, Missouri (USA), won in the utilities and telecoms category for the implementation of their new Material Compliance Management System, which was designed and developed by iPoint.
The prestigious Verdantix EH&S Innovation Awards highlight the most successful projects using innovative information management technologies to improve EH&S metrics and overall business performance. For the 2017 awards, an independent judging panel composed of EH&S experts with broad, international experience selected eleven winners in industry and public sector categories from more than 70 submissions. The Verdantix EH&S Innovation Award honors both the organizations who implement innovative technology projects, as well as their software and services suppliers.
“We are very honored to receive this distinguished industry award,” said Jason Volmer, Program Manager for Product Materials Compliance at Emerson. “Emerson and iPoint have been working closely together to develop and implement the Material Compliance Management System, which is intended to help manage product material information from suppliers around the world and perform analysis under multiple product environmental regulations. I am pleased to see the teams get recognized for their hard work and innovative efforts. Emerson chose to partner with iPoint as they are a proven leader in the compliance industry that could implement a software solution which aims to meet our global product materials compliance requirements.”
The award was presented during the Verdantix EH&S Summit 2017, which took place in Houston, Texas, from May 15-17. Dan Hertzberg, Senior Sales Director at iPoint Inc., accepted the award on behalf of iPoint and Emerson.
Shortly afterwards, on 23 June, iPoint was once again honoured with the TOP 100 seal of approval as one of Germany’s innovation leaders in the German SME sector. This is the sixth time that iPoint has made it into this innovation elite. This year, we were able to impress the TOP 100 jury throughout the independent selection process by our corporate climate of innovation and innovation success.
Moreover, we have now been granted the title “Innovator of the Year” for the second time. In 2016, iPoint achieved a complete victory in size category B for companies with 51 to 250 employees. In 2012, we were able to position ourselves as Innovator of the Year in size category A (companies with up to 50 employees). iPoint is now the first company that has won the TOP 100 Innovation competition in both size categories.
We are very pleased about these innovation awards. They are an important indicator that we are on the right track and confirm our efforts to always be one step ahead of others when it comes to developing cutting-edge solutions – so that we can offer you tomorrow’s solutions today.
