Why Consultants Benefit from Cloud-based PCW Compliance Management
If you are a compliance expert, itâ€™s not enough to simply guide your clients through the requirements to remain in compliance. Â In reality, you need to assist your clients during audits and protect them against violationsâ€”like missing deadlines for permits or inspection reports. In other words, just assume that if your clients are fined for compliance violations they might attempt to hold you accountable.
ProComplianceWare (PCW) was actually developed withÂ compliance consultants in mind. PCW’s founder, Ted Sailer, has been an environmental compliance consultant for more thanÂ 30 years, and he developed the software because he needed it himself.Â He hasÂ managed hundreds of environmental projects throughout the United StatesÂ â€”Â Fortune 100 Companies toÂ privateÂ individuals â€”Â managing environmental compliance site assessments and remediation.Â Â Upon occasion, he evenÂ assists attorneys as an expert witness on environmental cases.
He developed PCW alerts to let him know when his clients are due for inspections, permits and a myriad of other tasks associated with Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) regulations. Â
Unfortunately many companies did not have a system like PCW in place because last year the EPA obtained nearly $100 million in federal administrative and civil judicial penalties from companies who missed deadlines.
Since most compliance experts already know what reports their clients need to file and how often, PCW is easy for them to set up. It’s fully customizable to handle any clients’ compliance reporting requirements. Consultants can provide this information to ProComplianceWare, who in turn will program all the required forms and schedules and filing requirements and also set up a notification schedule per your requirements. The system electronically tracks Â deadlines for compliance inspections, reporting, training and sampling activities, many of which areÂ requiredÂ by regulators for permits.
One of PCW’s clients, Joe Campisi who was formerly a vice president at EBI Consulting said, â€œIt is no longer acceptable for organizations to be negligent in environmental compliance management. When our organization first saw the capabilities of ProComplianceWare, we knew that we could leverage this powerful new solution to respond to our clientsâ€™ growing requirements to manage, report and optimize their environmental performance.
Here is a sample of an email alert.
