Evotix on Mission to Reduce Workplace Accidents in Europe and USA
Every year over 5,000 people are killed in workplace accidents in the US and EU – a number that’s risen in the US over the last ten years1 - and blue-collar workers in the US are five times as likely to have accidents as their white-collar counterparts2.
Evotix, an ESG business, formerly known as SHE Software and a world leader in environmental, health, safety and well-being software (EHS), announces today its mission to help organizations reduce these numbers through its investment in new staff, software, support and training services.
The business’ proposition is focussed on giving its clients ‘the confidence to transform’. For many organizations, changing the way they handle health and safety can be daunting because they don’t want to uproot established practices even if they are based on out-of-date processes and technologies. Evotix has the in-depth expertise in the latest technologies, especially those that improve and simplify the user experience, that enables organizations to implement the changes they – and their employees – need to make EHS simpler and safer.
Matthew Elson, CEO of Evotix, explains, “People, especially those that are less advantaged, have the right to work in a safer environment. Our business already helps protect the safety of over 3,000,000 employees worldwide and we’re determined to protect many, many more in the years to come.”
“Too many employees suffer workplace accidents or endure workplace related physical and mental health problems, causing issues not only for those individuals but for businesses and wider society. Many of these unfortunate situations would be avoidable if health and safety were embedded in the way the organization truly functions, supported by software featuring the latest user-friendly technologies. Engaging employees on safety issues needs to be simple, sustainable and tailored for the need of each individual organization and that’s what Evotix has been built to offer.”
“The introduction of the Evotix name is just one step on our journey. The SHE Software name has served us well during our early years, but we wanted a name that was both memorable and reflects our vision and evolved proposition. The Evotix name is a conflation of the key qualities that make us special – evolutionary technology, innovation and experience.”
Based in Chicago and London, over the past five years Evotix has grown by over 40% every year and now has over 130 staff across the US, Europe and Asia-Pacific. In the last two years the company has experienced its fastest ever growth and major customers include: GlaxoSmithKline, New Balance, Citrix and University of Cambridge.
SOLUTIONS FOR TOMORROW
Evotix focusses on promoting workplace health and safety by providing innovative and engaging technology that gets embedded in the everyday flow of activity.
Evotix provides a comprehensive solution covering all aspects of health and safety management.
The solution is online and mobile-first designed to be used quickly and easily on-the-spot. With Evotix, incidents can be reported and shared within minutes, actions can be tracked to completion and underlying trends can be analysed.
Understanding documents on a mobile phone can be challenging: many organizations have a percentage of their workforce who are illiterate. Evotix employs microlearning video and quizzes in the field to engage employees in understanding risk and following defined working methods.
Every organization is different so the software can be easily tailored and adapted as requirements evolve. Evotix is continually adding new innovation as technology evolves.
Matthew continues, “Our approach helps organizations and employees alike. For organizations, accidents and incidents are expensive, with direct costs including lost hours, damage, disruption and claims, and indirect costs including the impact on morale, reputation, stress and management distraction. “
“We believe employees deserve better. The risks associated with workplace accidents fall disproportionately on the most disadvantaged in society - gig economy workers, casual labourers. An organization that prioritises risk reduction for all its staff will perform better financially, operationally and reputationally. That’s where we are here to help.”
Dawn Hemmings at Citrix says, “I’ve partnered with Evotix for over five years at three different organisations. I have always valued them as a partner that cares as passionately about improving workplace safety as I do. That’s why, when I joined Citrix, one of my first actions was to call Evotix. We know that their vision to make EHS simpler, more intuitive and more engaging is aligned with ours and they have the capabilities and plans to make that vision a reality.”
Evotix is a global ESG technology company transforming the way employees engage in workplace health and safety. Its market leading solution, Assure, is used by more than 400 customers across a wide range of industries including manufacturing, food & drink, construction, utility services, transport & logistics, municipalities, healthcare, education and housing.
Customers include GlaxoSmithKline, New Balance, Citrix, Finsbury Foods, Eddie Stobart, Network Rail, Wacker Neuson, Euro Car Parts and University of Cambridge.
Evotix’s intuitive, mobile first application fosters worker participation, guiding frontline activities while capturing rich data to help prioritise safety and operational improvements and ensure compliance. Ease of deployment and resulting swift customer impact drive Evotix’s rapid multi-year growth.
Evotix has offices in Chicago, London, Manchester, Glasgow and Melbourne, and is backed by significant investors including Mercia Asset Management and Frog Capital.

NextSense Emerges to Unlock Brain Health with Key Partners UCB, Heraeus, UC San Diego, and Emory University3.12.2021 16:00:00 CET | Press release
NextSense, the foundation of brain health, came out of stealth with an announcement made from the AES (American Epilepsy Society) Annual Meeting in Chicago, where NextSense and its partners are presenting the results of their research on seizure detection to peers in academia and industry for the first time. NextSense unlocks brain health with real world data insights and practical, scientific wisdom for daily living. Traditional brain health monitoring technology like EEG machines and polysomnograms are too bulky for home use, requiring patients to stay overnight at hospitals or sleep study clinics for observation. The high cost of care and lack of comfort of these devices makes long-term and continuous monitoring nearly impossible. Not only are these data based on a single timeframe, they observe what is anything but an ordinary night’s sleep. And for anyone living with epilepsy, the unpredictability of seizures makes direct observation and high-quality data-gathering exceedingly rar
