Intelex Technologies, a provider of SaaS-based environmental, health, safety and quality (EHSQ) management software, has acquired ehsAI, a provider of compliance automation technology. The “AI” in ehsAI refers to the artificial intelligence and machine learning embedded in its solutions. Financial terms were not disclosed.
ehsAI’s technology, according to the company, “deconstructs, analyzes, interprets and converts complex EHS regulations, permits and legal documents into actionable compliance requirements within minutes,” adding that traditional manual processes could take days or even weeks to do the same sorts of tasks. Through the software, these compliance activities can be tracked, monitored and reported on.
In a statement, Justin McElhattan, president of Intelex, explained that ehsAI augments Intelex’s compliance management solutions and existing regulatory content partnerships.
ehsAI is a woman-led organization, and was founded by Margery Moore and Greg Gasperecz. It will operate as a Vancouver-based independent business unit and will remain agnostic in its ability to work with any EHS software to make the technology accessible for any organization, not just Intelex customers. ehsAI’s customer base includes companies in manufacturing, technology, energy, chemical, construction, pharmaceutical and retail sectors.
