Custom software

Development should not be

In a world that is becoming digital, organizations no longer need to sweat over the subsequent development of custom software and other web based applications & mobile apps. Organizations that have adopted global safety standards are no different. In order to digitally enable their HSE management, corporations need not spend endless hours of SMEs, valuable resources and allocate high budgets.

Now you can customize your safety software in the HSE domain at affordable prices and minimal time. As an integrated EHS service provider, ASK-EHS has built a serviceable platform that can be easily customized to suit the preferences and specifications of any industrial or non-industrial organization.

Globally Adopted Best Practices

Different countries / geographies follow different safety standards like OSHA, OHSAS, EU-OSHA and others. Many of these standards are reminiscent of the country’s or region’s local laws, cultural inclination and organizational best practices. The ILO (International Labour Organization) has adopted and earmarked 40 different standards that specifically deal directly or indirectly, with Occupational Safety & Health issues (source: ILO Org). ASK-EHS believes that every specific requirement demands an exclusive and customized solution, rather than a “one size fits all” product.

A Productive Alliance for Builiding Safety Software

Our in-house team of HSE experts collaborate with consultants in every region to understand these specific requirements that are in line with the region’s laws and adopted standards. These affiliates are full-time consultants who assist our endeavor in providing specific, relevant and exclusive solutions to our patrons. Our affiliated consultants are spread across multiple regions and have the knowledge and experience in the known standards and compliances of that particular country. They are also highly experienced in industrial practices having worked with different industrial organizations in their region. These industries include Oil & Gas, Manufacturing, Automotive, Chemicals & Specialty Chemicals, Petrochemicals, Pharmaceuticals, Power & Energy and other such large scale industries.

Our team of consultants / SMEs collaborate and assist your team for defining, understanding, developing and implementing safety software. They act as active catalysts between your requirement and ASK-EHS’ technology/IT team, for understanding the exact requirements and describe the same to our technical/IT team. They help in determining clear objectives, define the scope of development (work flows, forms, reporting requirements, referential documents, hierarchies etc.) for custom software.

A Mobile App was designed for enabling communication between contractors and engineers for planning, execution and closure of tasks.

A Meticulous & Systematic Approach

Our team of highly proficient OHSE experts, consulting SMEs and technical team were able to draw precise blueprints for the implementation of the respective software. The exercise entailed a rigorous and thorough requirement analysis which eventually allowed us to draw a clear blueprint for development. This approach has been the reason for the successful endeavours that are currently prevalent in the above mentioned corporations.

Over the years, the platform that we have built is ready and requires minimal customization effort so that it can fit into the customer’s specific requirements. We are able to demonstrate our proficiencies through the platform and have the knowledge and experience to understand the HSE challenges that global organizations face. These platforms have been built over a 15 year period and have gone through regular cycles of upgrades. As partners of Microsoft, our proficiencies have grown through the years, making us the preferred service providers for a host of services that are on offer.

Our IT skills span across solutions that are provided through web application, mobile apps, with cloud / on-premise deployments using Microsoft technology stack (.NET framework, Office 365, SharePoint, Power BI, SQL Server) and Angular, IONIC and many more. We’re able to provide practical and scalable (future-ready) strategies that help you with upgraded solutions. Our team is well adept at completing some of the most complex projects with consummate ease, considering the time spent within the HSE domain. Our development experience of 15 years in delivering enterprise level applications have allowed us to provide end-to-end solutions starting from requirement gathering to deployment of software and post that, support services. Here’s a visual representation of our process and existing delivery models;

Delivery Methodologies


The Agile methodology is one of the most readily adopted development methodologies globally. Benefits of adopting it include;

  • Better project visibility
  • Flexibility in scope, based on changes in requirements
  • Breaking down work in small cycles (e.g. Sprints in Scrum)
  • Clear vision and responsibilities to individuals in a team
  • Iterative enhancements
  • Close engagement with customers

Waterfall Model

This model is mostly recommended for small and medium projects where requirements are precise, well defined and unlikely to change. This model is usually suited to development projects that have well-defined stages (requirement analysis, design, development, testing, deployment, training and maintenance) with clearly defined objectives and process workflows. The model offers ease of understanding, project management and prioritize tasks.
