Environmental ERP solutions for Freescale Semiconductor by Enviance

Freescale replaces client server software with Enviance to achieve greater emissions awareness, flexibility to manage growing environmental priorities.


Freescale Semiconductor has selected Enviance Inc., a global provider of Environmental ERP solutions that measure, manage, report and reduce environmental and regulatory risks,Freescale Semiconductor as its proprietary solution to measure and report compliance data on all compliance areas including water, air and emissions. Freescale replaced its existing vendor with the Enviance cloud-based platform in order to manage the emissions requirements of multiple facilities in one centralized system. Cloud computing enables companies of any size – from multinational enterprises to small start-ups – to benefit from world-class software without requiring the in-house resources required by installed software systems.

“Freescale is an organization that prides itself on technical excellence, and we wanted an emissions management solution that matched our internal expectations for performance and ease-of-use,” said Jean-Marc Henry, director of Global Site Services at Freescale Semiconductor. “Enviance’s cloud-based management system provides us with a fast deployable solution that centralizes our compliance requirements while reducing operational costs with easy configurability and end-user system management.”

Enviance purportedly stood out among competitors for its understanding of regulatory pressures along with the company’s deep set of industry leading reference customers. The Enviance system will supposedly allow EnvianceFreescale fast deployment, easy configurability, end-user system management and cloud-based performance. The system will allegedly help Freescale cut costs by requiring fewer hours to operate and provide a reduction in overall facility emissions.

Lawrence Goldenhersh, president and CEO of Enviance, said, “Freescale’s decision to replace client server technology with Enviance’s cloud-based Environmental ERP is important as it reflects the market consensus regarding the pre-eminence of cloud-based systems for the management of environmental and regulatory risk, and provides continuing evidence of the market’s demand for environmental software that empowers companies to move from environmental reporting and record-keeping, to the management of the financial risk posed by these environmental factors.”

Annual Salary Survey

After almost a decade of uncertainty, the confidence of plant floor managers is soaring. Even with a number of challenges and while implementing new technologies, there is a renewed sense of optimism among plant managers about their business and their future.

The respondents to the 2014 Plant Engineering Salary Survey come from throughout the U.S. and serve a variety of industries, but they are uniform in their optimism about manufacturing. This year’s survey found 79% consider manufacturing a secure career. That’s up from 75% in 2013 and significantly higher than the 63% figure when Plant Engineering first started asking that question a decade ago.
