Pros: The Injury & Illness Recordkeeping functionality is really strong and is built around enabling a company to stay OSHA compliant.

The other basic safety program and compliance assurance tools have everything necessary to run a basic EHS program digitally. Beyond that, there are many different tools and suites available to totally manage, expand, and improve an EHS program digitally.

Our team really likes the ease of retrieving and seeing data and charts for analysis which makes our jobs so much easier.

Cons: Customization of the platform (if needed) can be difficult, slow, time-consuming, and expensive. The permissions and scope model can be difficult for new users and non-EHS professionals to understand and use.

Pros: Gensuite has tremendous flexibility and many features. Gensuite's ability to analyze information across a large enterprise adds value for my team. Gensuite also has great workflow capacity and wonderful customer service.

Cons: Not intuitive for first time users. The flexibility and number of features can have a flip side of increased complexity.

Overall: A rich and deep enterprise data set for injury and incident data. Systems to track corrective actions, near misses, compliance closures. Ability to enhance organization learning. Automated alerting systems for management staff.

Pros: I value the ease of use as we have over two hundred (200) users/contacts in our organization utilizing Gensuite on a daily basis. The hierarchy of the software is logical and that allows for users to rapidly improve their knowledge of the system. If you possess even moderate computer skills you can easily utilize the Gensuite software.

Cons: We rolled out Gensuite to our fleet over a year ago and the screens we utilized are being replaced with new "Beta" screens. Would have preferred a better rollout of these new screens.

Overall: The comprehensive documenting of fleet data such as Events and Injuries allowing our company to leverage our assets for the benefit of our clients, thereby, maximizing our earnings while minimizing expenditures for the short, mid, and long term.

Pros: Robust framework allows for excellent incident tracking. Compliance calendar is also very helpful, as is the inspection tool.

Cons: Can be difficult to use. However, the customer service is so good, that they set us straight by showing how certain tasks are performed.

Overall: Peace of mind. Knowing all incidents are being recorded up to OSHA compliance standards is crucial to our operations' success.

Pros: The implementation process was painless and we have trained our global company on several different modules developed especially for our company. The Gensuite team has been amazing every step of the way and continue to support our efforts daily.

Cons: What I like least about Gensuite is that there are too many options to get to the same destination. This is an issue with managing a global team everyone has a different way of using Gensuite

Overall: Our company is now using one safety software throughout the company.

Pros: The tools work integrated making the data have sense in different perspectives of the process. Outstanding customer support and bug fixes, the "Help Me" feature provide an excellent and fast communication channel with the technical and administrative teams. System performance, availability and reliability are very positive points.

Cons: I have been using Gensuite since 2001 and the main "pain" for me and my partners is the interface not standardized/friendly between the tools, the "Recharge" initiative started last year was very important to improve the user experience and there is still a lot of opportunities in this area. Also about the UX, the mobile app is not very easy for some features and the usability could be more intuitive. Gensuite manages a high volume of data, however the reports available are not always easy to find/generate, beside that, these reports could be more customizable to deliver the insights directly in the tool avoiding the use of external tools - a BI initiative more robust will help.

Positive experience, the help me process is bit of a struggle.

Pros: Inspection Tool, and Training Tracker have been very helpful in regards to tracking training and inspection tool has been key to the recent implementation of our audit process.

Cons: It would be nice to be able to generate automatic reports much easier. Also, we do have an issue, the typical response is a help me request that never really ends in a true solution.

Pros: Ease of use, options, look of system, e-mail notifications. It is a good system for a business with multiple sites that need a enterprise wide management system of EHS. It is great for tracking incidents, OSHA Logs. The Compliance Calendar and Action Plan are great tools for tracking proactive and reactive action to inspections, incidents and regular requirements.

Cons: The reports are a bit hard to find. Would be nice to have a master list of reports and then be able to select the one I want, instead of going to Injury/Illness, Dashboard, or Insights and analytics and hunt for the one I want.

Overall: From and oversite (Corporate) perspective; ease of enterprise management, better data analysis and the ability to proactive manage EHS requirements. Local sites find it easy to use and more of a tool to help them, opposed to a "Corporate System" that we have to use.

This EHS Management Software provides a one-stop shop for all our EHS needs.

Pros: Gensuite is a one-stop shop for all our EHS needs. This enables our company to simplify our audits, which solidifies management and employee support. As a business administrator for my company, I can easily view what's happening at each of our plant's from our corporate headquarters. The applications we utilize are very user friendly. Lastly, we really like how most of the applications are integrated with others, for example; when you conduct an audit, you simply export those items to the action tracking app for tracking purposes.

Cons: For those in my organization, the applications take some time to get used to. Once this hurdle is overcome, applications work with ease.

Pros: As a fast-growing company with multiple sites, Gensuite enables us to see critical EHS data from afar. The best thing about Gensuite is that it is user-friendly for our team, encouraging accurate reporting and data from our front line users through intuitive interfaces. We receive great data from Gensuite, and to me, that's what matters most in EHS software.

Cons: One of the challenges we face using Gensuite is that we have to operate as a third-party contractor for another company that uses Gensuite requiring us to input data separately between both instances. To overcome this challenge, I suggest offering flexible EHS data integrations when operating as a third-party contractor.

Pros: I like the fact that I can start with a base application and have the opportunity to customize when needed.

Cons: It would benefit subscribers to have more details upfront concerning the support costs (i.e., how they will be managed, what they are used for, and what happens when their is a surplus at the end of the year, etc.).

Overall: We are able to combine field observations with data metrics in order to develop and implement more effective compliance programs.

Pros: What our team likes most about Gensuite is that it is one simple tool to manage all EHS and compliance needs, eliminating the use of multiple excel spreadsheets. Everything is connected which makes managing tasks so much easier - for example, you can easily export concerns into ATS for corrective action tracking.

Cons: Our team is eager to use Gensuite tools, though the only con is that you have to pay by application.

Inflexible, expensive, and inconsistent.

Pros: If your business is structured exactly like GE, Gensuite will work great for you. It does basic incident reporting well, and does a good job of managing action items.

Cons: The internal architecture of the software is inflexible. It will not allow you to make changes to forms. The user interface is ridiculously complex, and cannot be changed. After four years of use, my employees still complain about how difficult it is to enter information. If you want to make any custom changes, be prepared to open your wallet, and even then it still won't do exactly what you want it to. The user experience is so bad that Gensuite has become a joke for employees (when facing a challenging situation they say "it's still easier than Gensuite).

Overall: It helped us to realize exactly what we wanted in EHS software by noting all the things Gensuite can't do.

Pros: For us being a global company, Gensuite allows us to record our data in Dutch, Chinese, English, etc.which is very helpful. Everything you need for a global company is contained all on one platform. Whether an incident happened across the street, or an incident happened across the world in China, I have all the data all at my fingertips. For features and functionality, Gensuite has everything we need, and we can be a pretty demanding group. Displaying 15 different customized metric reports to a big, diverse group is critical. Gensuite is also relatively inexpensive compared to other systems.

Cons: Customer support can't come fast enough. We want help right away and sometimes it takes a week. Although, the fix always happens right away.

Comments: Gensuite is not the least expensive option for management system software. They do support the product and have a mind-set for continual improvement. Many different applications available make it likely there is something that will fit your needs.

Pros: Multiple applications available for use with similar design and features for uniformity. Ability to integrate multiple sites and locations. Cloud-based access to information and applications.

Cons: Product support has been lagging at times when there is a problem. Some applications do not have an easy way to find the path to what your are trying to do and can lead to extra time or steps being taken. This is especially true for situations where you may not need to perform the task routinely. Generally there is a lack of ability to customize for unique user preferences in an application.

Comments: I have been using Gensuite for over 13 years. The basic app use is effective, but there is inconsistency with design. For example, the location of the SUBMIT buttons. They are not in a consistent place in every application. Sometimes they are to the right or left or center and top middle or bottom of page. Consistency of where to find certain functions is what makes navigating Microsoft product interfaces so easy. For example, I always go back to the File menu to SAVE and this is always in the same place in every application - excel, word, powerpoint. Gensuite needs to get to this level of consistency.

Eric, we want to thank you for choosing Gensuite as your EHS management solution for over 13 years and for your honest comments as a long-time subscriber.

As we discussed recently, we are excited to show you this new and simplified layout, which will be standardized across all our applications. We look forward to hearing your thoughts on the new look soon as we drive to improve the consistency and usability our tools. - Andy Cox (VP, Customer Services & Development)

Pros: Customization options

Cons: Doesn't work, no accuracy/trust in data, we have to beta test and find flaws

Overall: At this time I am very frustrated with the product and system. Previously, I had a better experience, but currently I have no trust in the data accuracy and quality. We designed a fix to ensure the data matches, but it does not, yet we are still being charged. There is no communication or feeling of urgency or follow-up. I have given data to senior management that I now know is flawed and affects my credibility. I get constant complaints from my staff and am considering exploring other options - even though I really don't want to, as I am a longtime, loyal Gensuite customer.

Recommendations to other buyers: Have a sense of urgency and fix the problems. Don't spread the account managers so thin (if that is the problem?)

Comments: The biggest complaint I hear from NBCU users is that Gensuite does not provide consistent and reliable data or perform as expected.

Gensuite has the ability to manage a huge volume of data, and makes it possible to extract and analyze that data. Having said that, I often hear from users that the software is not very user friendly, and many employees frequently struggle with it. There are many features that you think the application would provide¿that are just are not there. My company has spent thousands on custom programming with Gensuite, and then had to spend thousands more to try to get it to perform in a manner that is useable to the field workers. I am speaking specifically of the Mobile products. NBCU has spent over $100,000 so field personnel can conduct inspections while in the field¿.so far these products have not worked in a consistent manner. This is frustrating to many workers that after struggling to get the apps to work, now refuse to use the mobile apps at all. Gensuite is a good basic system, but many features that you think the application would provide just are not there.

Many at my company really just want the applications to ¿work¿, they sometimes feel too much time and effort is made on reformatting the pages to make them look pretty, when these users just want consistency and easy functionality. Many of our users are infrequent users of Gensuite, so when you change things for the sake of change it is disconcerting to these users.

Here¿s what I hear most:

¿ Metrics run from different reporting areas in Gensuite do not match
¿ Mobile applications not working together
¿ Offline not working
¿ Bar and QR codes do not work
¿ Why is Gensuite re-formatting pages again?
¿ Why do we have to ¿pay¿ to get ¿basic functionality?¿
¿ Why does it take so long for things to be addressed or fixed?......then to hear Gensuite agrees it is an issue, and often the solution is a proposal or the issue is pushed to the forgotten land of Gensuite roadmap.

Overall we are now unhappy with Gensuite and the reliability of the data, responsiveness to concerns, and functionality. Some of the tools are large and require a fair amount of customization to be useful which can be difficult at times and as a result we will start looking at alternative systems (even though we would prefer not to) if these issues are not rectified quickly.

Comments: I have enjoyed working with the Gensuite team. It has been difficult trying to fit our business needs/use of this tool onto the pre-formatted tool design. Changes at times have been difficult or "impossible" and sometimes take WAY too long to complete. On the flip side, there have been times when we get exactly what we need within days sometimes hours. I appreciate the open and upfront approach you take when developing new ideas and look forward to future improvements. Thank you!

Comments: I work as a site admin on the suite and it offers some great reporting tools (subject to input). The power behind the scenes is awesome and can be daunting to the uninitiated. That said the data mining is quick and responsive.

Pros: I like the vast array of features and functions that gensuite provides as a system.

Cons: The amount of admin required to run simple reports, I often find that tasks that should take a minute or so to do ens up taking a lot longer, I also feel that some of the forms are very long winded and could be stripped down to capture the essential information.

Overall: I find that genesuite as a system has a lot to offer our business and can be used to record a valuable data. I find that using gensuite on a day to day business can be very time consuming and consist of a lot of admin to get the data that you require. Gensuite would benefit from being simplified to make the user experience easier .

Recommendations to other buyers: Allow for simple data dumps from inspection tool to capture all data and allow the user to filter out as required.

Overall: Overall, I like the Gensuite software. While, the results are satisfactory, the Training Tracker could be more user friendly. This is where the system needs the most improvement.

Recommendations to other buyers: Streamline Training tracker more. Find a way to tie the courses to the training matrix instantly rather than wait 24 hours.

Comments: I am familiar with several of the apps in Gensuite, but, as a trainer, Training Tracker is my forte. The app works well for tracking who needs what training, as well as, reporting against what training has taken place. If I were to design it, I would have made different decisions on the look, feel and functionality, but for an "off the shelf" solution, it does pretty good. Gensuite is also willing to work with it's clients in order to customize the experience, if they feel other companies would also be interested in a particular feature. Overall = satisfactory.

Comments: I like Gensuite and it's ability to pull trending reports. I personally use the Inspection Tool reports and am able to view at a glance employees who have completed an inspection, where it was completed and if there were any discrepancies. I can also view if the discrepancies were resolved or assigned to someone.

Pros: Vast capabilities and powerful analytics.

Cons: Not user friendly, not flexible.

Overall: Gensuite has the ability to manage a huge volume of data, and makes it possible to extract and analyze those data. The software is not very user friendly, and many employees who use it infrequently struggle with it. The other downside is that Gensuite was designed for a large company with autonomous facilities, if your company does not fit that model getting custom changes made is difficult, expensive, and still limited.

Recommendations to other buyers: Pretty expensive, but workable.

Pros: All of its wonderful capabilities and the program is very easy to use.

Cons: The only thing that I can think of is the capability of making more of the data changes within the system that are job or area specific to your company.

Overall: I cannot tell you just how happy I am to have this awesome software. Employee Safety and Health is a crucial department in any company and with this software, you are able to identify injury trends that can assist you in making the right steps to cease or at very least, decrease the possibility of another like injury. It has been amazing to see the progress we have made in just a little over a year now. Before Gensuite, we had no way of determining the areas or issues that were resulting in injuries. And this is just one small aspect of Gensuite. I could go on and on in reference to all of the applications that Gensuite has to offer. So many capabilities. I have found that anything that I am interested in tracking, Gensuite has an application that will do just that. It offers your company organization and accountability. It has made my work life so much more efficient because Gensuite manages my responsibilities. That takes a huge load off of my mind. I am also responsibility for PPE, Permit and Wastewater System Management. All of these responsibilities are also managed through Gensuite. The most time consuming aspect is getting the information into the system. But once you do, you can have peace of mind that all is well. The email generated reminders are so very helpful in assisting you when tasks are due that have been assigned to a specific person; email reminders will generate when closure of a task is due, when documents or reports are do and even notifies the appropriate person(s) when a task is complete and or past due. I'm so excited to be a part of this program and would tell anyone who is looking for a means of managing, not only Employee Safety and Health, but any other area, to look no further, GENSUITE IS WHAT YOU ARE LOOKING FOR!!!

Recommendations to other buyers: Once you have the software, spend time in the training sessions that are available to you from the "Help Me," option. These tools are crucial to your understanding of the system and the applications that they have to offer.

Great application, but limited flexibility in terms of reporting...everything is a custom project.

Overall: Overall I'm satisfied with Gensuite. The team servicing our account seems fairly new and it is taking time to get them up to speed, but that is progressing. The holistic nature of the application is great; nice to have everything under one roof. We've had problems where, often, something that did work doesn't work anymore. Frankly they need to do a better job with QA/QC but they've got the message and on the most recent changes held them back longer for testing. We have a solid partnership and I suspect additional business units will start using now that the account is stabilizing.

Recommendations to other buyers: Help customers more upon initial upload of users and permissions. Advice we received was lacking.

Comments: Elimination of paper copies and having this software for employee communication has been extremely helpful. The workforce can tell us in realtime of concerns that will then generate an email to the movers and shakers to get the concern looked at and completed. The employees can also give themselves a positive observation whicxh we look at in the same level as a concern.

Recommendations to other buyers: Provide working examples of how the system works (mock company(ies).

Comments: Your software has everything needed to track safety in and out of our lab. It is easy to use and the lists created are helpful. Anything we need to be implemented is taken care of quickly. We also don't need to fight the support for any help. The navigation could be a little easier, but once learning how to get to different parts of the software, it is easily done.

Decent software, but some modules are not fully developed.

Pros: one stop shop and cross-platform access

Cons: some of the non-core modules are not fully developed - such as MOC, PHA manager, etc.

Overall: We purchased Gensuite initially for the action tracking module. It works well. Other modules such as MOC were not as well developed and we spent a lot of time finding bugs in the software.
One thing I don't like about the software is that there seems to be too much focus on what I call "eye candy" which does nothing to improve my workflow. Overall, however, the software works for us.

The customer support is very good. We've had a number of customer service people in the past 4 years and they are all very responsive to our needs.

Comments: I used Gensuite at my old company and liked it so much that I brought to my new company, BorgWarner. I saw the need for a complete EHS system that would let me see what kind of activities were going on at each of my 3 buildings on campus without me having to go to that particular building. With a bit of supervisor training we were able to get everyone on board and up and running within a matter of 2 month. The data mining is my favorite feature because it lets me see common trends throughout each department, which in turn lets us focus on the important safety related issues. The commonality of the modules makes it very easy to pick up a new program and utilize it to our need. I would highly recommend this software for any size company that wants to do true trend analysis, wants to be able to keep up with their injury and illnesses, inspection requirements, and regulatory compliance.

Comments: Allows for the digitization of an EHS program. Many of the applications are built off the same/similar platforms which makes easy to learn new applications. GenSuite also allows for the manipulation and analysis of large amounts of data and it also has great e-mail functionality to allow for both alerting and workflow situations. Some of the tools are large and require a fair amount of customization to be useful which can be difficult at times but overall the tool is a productivity improvement allow for EHS engagement from all levels of the business.
