Today, EHS software has become the preferred method for managing regulatory compliance, enterprise risk, and corporate sustainability data. A good EHS software system lets you store tons of information, analyze performance, spot trends and issues, and increase transparency across your organization.
However, the idea of moving all your data into a new system might seem like a daunting task. Many people worry that transferring their data into the new system will take a lot of work, or that their valuable information might get lost or misplaced.
The good news is that moving to Perillon is simple. If you kept track of your EHS information in Excel or another system, you can easily import your existing data into Perillon instead of manually re-entering it. This is especially helpful if you have a large amount of data you want to move into the system.
In this article, we’ll show you how to easily import your data into Perillon, and why you might want to.
