KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa., Dec. 18 /CNW/ -- Linx/AS LLC (www.linxas.com), a
product lifecycle management (PLM) consulting firm and member of SAP's
industry value network (IVN) for chemicals, announced the product release of

investigation; and WorkSafe CLAIMS(TM) for case management.
WorkSafe Suite is built with SAP NetWeaver(R) platform-based technology
to enable web browser access to standard compliance functionality within the
SAP(R) Environment, Health & Safety (SAP EH&S) application, part of SAP
solutions for governance, risk, and compliance (SAP solutions for GRC)-such as
Hazardous Substance Management, Industrial Hygiene & Safety, and Occupational
Health. In addition, WorkSafe Suite is role based, enhancing the user
experience with data and functions tailored to specific business users.
Enterprise strength and user friendly.
In the competitive landscape of compliance applications, SAP EH&S stands
apart in the enterprise space. In "Technology Options To Support EH&S
Compliance," (AMR Research, February 2007) Simon Jacobson writes, "SAP is the
one enterprise vendor with a significant EH&S product, spanning capabilities
that affect people, products, and processes." The senior research analyst
continues, "Other ERP providers do not have this level of EH&S depth on their
SAP EH&S has served as the compliance platform for global businesses
since the late '90s. Linx/AS created the web communication layer to provide
users with options for accessing the robust enterprise functionality and data.
In turn, businesses can implement user-centric solutions for complying with
legislation enacted by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration
(OSHA), Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), International Labour
Organization (ILO) and other regulatory bodies.
"WorkSafe Suite was designed to leverage the existing strength of the SAP
EH&S platform without creating redundant or competitive functionality,"
explains Matthew Duka, director of marketing communications for Linx/AS. "It
gives enterprise users choices on how they want to input, access, and work
with compliance data-whether it's a web page, interactive form, or mobile
device. What's more, it gives IT organizations a roadmap for reducing point-
solution complexity and lowering the total cost of ownership."
