Auditing efficiency, accuracy and consistency are highlighted by Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) auditors as areas to innovate and improve. As a practice, auditing had seen little by way of technological innovation until the use of mobile devices came on the scene about a decade ago. Since then, advances in Artificial Intelligence and the application of smart glasses are redefining what is possible within the practice.

This presentation will share industry best practices for enabling standardization, accuracy, and real-time efficiency within the auditing practice through the use of Cloud-based mobile applications as well as Gensuite's recent pilots with "Frontier Technologies", including beacons, AI-enabled access to regulatory insights/guidance, and 'remote auditing' through connected smart glasses.

For the past 20 years, Gensuite has worked with auditing teams and EHS professionals across several industries to develop best practices and to redefine what is possible through continuous improvement and practical innovation. Please join us to learn more about how you and your auditing teams can re-imagine the auditing practice within your own organization through Frontier Technologies.
