In late October, RegScan, Inc. launched its new regulatory-based task management system at NAEM’s 17th Annual EHS Management Forum. And what is the name of this system? RegScan Socrates(TM), of course.

Socrates himself was on hand at the event to introduce attendees to the system, and to encourage people to ask questions of themselves and their current task management solutions.

“Does a man know which tasks he must accomplish to achieve regulatory compliance? Does he contemplate whether or not there is a faster and easier way to keep track of the progress of such tasks? Does his current system truly meet his needs, or does he need something much more enlightened?” the philosopher pondered aloud.

Also on hand at the event was RegScan’s President and CEO Ned Ertel.

“The citizens of Athens thought they did away with a great thinker…perhaps in body, but not in spirit,” explains Ertel. “In keeping with Socrates’ spirit, who was known for organized thought processes, we designed RegScan Socrates(TM) as an intelligent compliance task management system.”

Unlike other task management systems, Socrates is a regulatory compliance management system where users can create tasks directly from the regulations. Whether complying with Sarbanes-Oxley, banking, housing, environmental health and safety, tax and any other regulatory area, Socrates will simplify and help organize one’s regulatory compliance. Clients can also generate tasks using audit protocols provided by RegScan or upload their own custom questions into the Corrective Action Tracking (or CATS) module. Once the audit is complete, CATS will automatically create corrective action tasks from the deficiencies.

You don’t need to spend time with Socrates in person to learn about the RegScan Socrates(TM) system. Information on the new system has been added to the www.regscan.com web site. There visitors will find an overview of RegScan Socrates(TM). For more information, RegScan’s sales team is always happy to answer your questions at 1-800-734-7226.
