With more than 200,000 dealers, distribution centers and franchisee network across the USA, Interstate Battery System of America, Inc. (IBSA) is a leader in marketing automotive batteries. The company also markets marine/RV, mobility, motorcycle, lawn, garden, and other lines of batteries in the starting, lighting, and Ignition (SLI) markets through its network. IBSA employs more than 1,500 full-time and 4,500 contractors’ across all its 250+ locations.
The workforce of IBSA across all locations handle highly hazardous lead-acid batteries. With strict regulations for storage and handling of these substances, it’s challenging for IBSA’s Corporate Environmental, Health and Safety (EHS) team of 5 members to keep the employees safe. The EHS coordinators were facing several challenges in tracking and reporting workplace incidents and accidents. In addition, conducting weekly, monthly and yearly audits and inspections was a major challenge with IBSA’s internally developed system that had gone obsolete over time.
IBSA realized that the existing obsolete system significantly constrained its capabilities to improve efficiency, productivity and the scope of its EHS initiatives. The company saw demonstrated value in opting for a cloud-based EHS solution that can effortlessly scale according to the company’s business needs, without requiring a significant investment of time, money, and effort. After a highly competitive evaluation of the leading solutions available in the EHS marketplace, IBSA adopted ProcessMAP’s EHSQ cloud platform to power the digital transform its EHS initiatives.
