DENVER--- The National Environmental Health Association (NEHA) issued an invitation today to its members to attend a live demo of an online portal that NEHA identifies as beneficial to environmental health professionals looking to reduce paperwork and be more efficient in the office and out in the field.

“EnvisionConnect Online takes on a lot of the busy work that can plague environmental health department productivity,” explains Kevin Delaney, CEO of Decade Software. Decade and NEHA, allied under theBuilding Capacity initiative, identified this functionality as strategic to their targeted partnership to encourage the use, fit, and future development of IT resources in environmental health. “This technology will save NEHA’s members thousands of hours every year and give them the opportunity to focus on tasks specific to protecting public health, rather than the tedious work of processing hundreds or thousands of paper forms and checks, or repetitively taking the same basic account questions for customers over the phone.”

A public-facing component of Decade’s EnvisionConnect product suite, EnvisionConnect Online enhances environmental health departments’ capacity to deliver quality customer service through real-time web transactions. Citizens can submit complaints and picture attachments from their smart phones directly from a local restaurant, for example. Local businesses (e.g. restaurants, hotels, public pools, etc) can securely submit forms, payments, service requests, attachments, and more via a user-friendly interface. These registered customers can apply for or renew a permit online, pay invoices, check the status of a pending application or service request, and respond to open violations or enforcement actions over the web, without direct health department interaction.

Decade will lead a live demonstration of EnvisionConnect Online for interested National Environmental Health Association members on February 25, 2015 at 11a.m. PST. Click here for more information.
