Veriforce Launches New Brand at 2016 LGA Pipeline Safety Conference

HOUSTON, August 8, 2016 – Veriforce®, the only single-source provider of integrated Operator Qualification (OQ), Drug and Alcohol, and Safety compliance management solutions for energy & utilities companies, today revealed its new company brand at the 2016 LGA Pipeline Safety Conference where the company is exhibiting and presenting. The new brand, which includes a new logo, color scheme, and design, represents the company’s focus on providing integrated compliance solutions that combine software and services to help companies across all segments of the energy & utilities market meet industry regulatory requirements and enhance workforce and community safety. In conjunction with the new brand, Veriforce launched an updated website that reflects the new brand and provides an enhanced user experience.

For fifteen years, Veriforce has provided the energy & utilities industry with compliance solutions designed to enhance personal and community safety. This focus, along with increasingly complex and evolving industry regulations and client feedback, has led the company to expand its solutions portfolio over time to now provide integrated OQ, Drug and Alcohol, and OSHA Safety compliance management software, as well as complementary training solutions for clients in all segments of the energy & utilities market. The company’s objective is to be the single-source vendor for companies that need to monitor contractor and employee compliance with DOT/PHMSA and OSHA regulations, deliver and track related training, maintain records, and demonstrate their compliance to regulators.

“We spend a lot of time speaking to people in the market and often hear how challenging and costly it is for companies to manage their different compliance programs in support of OQ, drug and alcohol, and safety regulatory requirements using different systems and a variety of vendors,” said Louie Werderich, president of Veriforce. “That’s why at Veriforce we chose to take a different approach by developing an integrated compliance solution so clients could not only manage OQ, drug and alcohol, and safety compliance in a single system, but work with a single vendor to do so. This unique approach and value is now reflected in our company brand.”

Along with its integrated compliance management software, VeriSourceTM , the company also offers complementary audit services to help clients ensure the integrity of their compliance programs, as well as consulting services that help clients keep up with the ever-changing regulatory environment.

“As we’ve partnered with our clients to understand their needs, we’ve also found that technology is just one piece of the puzzle in their quest to build effective and defensible compliance programs,” Werderich said. “Veriforce’s ability to provide audit and consulting services to complement our compliance management and training software helps clients create stronger, more holistic compliance programs.”

The new Veriforce website, featuring the new company brand, is optimized for use on a desktop computer, tablet, or mobile phone. New client support features include a Frequently Asked Questions section and a “Getting Started with Veriforce” area. A new Knowledge Center section is dedicated to providing educational resources for the energy & utilities industry and will be continually expanded. This section will provide white papers, on-demand webinars, checklists, blog articles, and more that address timely and relevant topics such as managing the complexities of regulatory changes, how to best employ technology as a part of a compliance program, and how to deal with a retiring workforce – all with the goal of helping people navigate their key business challenges.
