KPA Acquires iScout to Accelerate Mobile EHS Software Adoption

Lafayette, Colo. – January 6, 2021 – Today, KPA, a leading provider of Environment, Health & Safety (EHS) compliance solutions, announced the acquisition of iScout, a provider of flexible, intuitive EHS software designed for small and mid-sized organizations. With iScout, companies can easily collect, evaluate, and share safety information across their organization to cultivate a culture of safety and to enable regulatory compliance. The cloud-based software platform centers on mobile applications for iOS and Android and enables safety managers to manage all aspects of their EHS program with flexible forms for audits and inspections, incident and near-miss management, OSHA reporting, safety training, and more.

“iScout adds tremendous software capability to KPA, and we expect it will accelerate our growth into new markets,” said Chris Fanning, President and CEO of KPA. “We believe iScout will integrate well with our existing, award-winning online training portfolio, and complement our national organization of certified, expert safety and compliance EHS experts.”

The health and safety of employees and customers is a critical focus area for organizations as they continue to respond to the impact of COVID-19 pandemic and implement EHS programs to stay compliant and prepare for the future. The addition of iScout software solutions will help KPA to accelerate market adoption in small and mid-sized companies in industries such as energy, manufacturing, construction, and transportation.

“KPA is a great fit for iScout as we continue to innovate and provide our customers with exceptional software and service to help them manage their EHS programs and keep employees safe,” said Deren Boyd, CEO of iScout. “We share a common vision for helping organizations improve their safety and compliance programs and look forward to combining forces to provide expanded capabilities to our rapidly growing client base.”

Existing iScout operations will continue business as usual, and iScout clients will receive the same high level of customer support as before the acquisition. KPA will continue iScout operations based in Norman, Oklahoma.

iScout’s software platform will compliment KPA’s existing software portfolio that includes Vera Suite, Risk Management Center, and Compligo. KPA, working with its majority shareholder Providence Equity Partners, remains focused on building the industry-leading provider of EHS compliance solutions through organic growth initiatives and strategic acquisitions.
