EHS Software Developer Marks a Milestone
Demise of Competitors Creates Niche Service Market

July 27, 2001

Ann Arbor-based A V Systems, Inc., pioneer developer of MIRS™, modular software for environmental, health and safety data management and compliance reporting, proudly celebrated 20 years in business in May 2001.

From its incorporation in 1981, A V Systems operated at the forefront of the Personal Computer revolution. Beginning with large consulting projects creating database systems for clients such as the Detroit Institute of Arts, A V used and installed the first PCs on the market, and later created an extensive chemical inventory management database system for the Parke Davis pharmaceutical company in 1986. In 1988, the company first sold its flagship software, MIRS™ (Material Inventory Report System), to address compliance issues of EPA SARA Title III regulations, which came into effect in 1987. Modules covering other EPA or OSHA regulations were added in subsequent years as the respective regulations came into place. Having grown from individual consulting projects to providing EH&S software to thousands of regulated facilities, A V’s recent sales to diverse clients such as Campbell’s Soup Company, Westinghouse Corporation, Sauder Woodworking Company, Cooper Energy Services, Bush Brothers & Company, and the California Correctional Institute, attest to the comprehensive EH&S data management capabilities of its MIRS™ software.

A long-time survivor in this software niche, A V has also built a cottage industry of converting hazardous chemical data from existing and out-of-date software packages into their own MIRS™ modules. "As we have watched our competitors merge or leave the business entirely, we have been able to provide a unique benefit to potential clients," said Andy Rudnik, founder and President of A V Systems. "Compliance is paramount in this industry - government regulations require that companies within certain industries retain hazardous chemical information for 30 years. In a sense, A V rescues companies saddled with orphaned EH&S software; packages that are no longer supported or compliant." Three years after targeting potential data conversion clients, this segment now comprises about 10% of A V’s current client base. "We can provide clients sizeable financial and timesaving benefits by converting the company’s trapped data into usable records within our program," Rudnik continues. "The client saves huge data entry expenses and avoids potentially devastating non-compliance fines, while using MIRS™, software with a thirteen-year track record of proven reliability."

MIRS™ Covers New EPA SARA Section 313 Reporting Changes

February 14, 2001

Ann Arbor, MICHIGAN - A V Systems, Inc., pioneer in the regulatory compliance management software field, announced that the company will release MIRS™ version 7.10 in April 2001, complete with all EPA SARA Section 313, Toxic Release Inventory chemical additions, deletions, and reporting thresholds changes for Report Year 2000.

Among the major changes, a group of previously regulated chemicals and additional new chemicals have been classified as Persistent Bioaccumulative Toxices, or PBTs. With this new classification comes significantly lower thresholds and even a newly-defined compound category for 17 highly-regulated Dioxin and Dioxin-like compounds that require reporting in different units of measurement. "These EPA changes create significant challenges for companies that had previously manually tracked and reported SARA section 313 listed chemical releases," said Andrew Rudnik, President and CEO of A V Systems, Inc. "The newly added chemicals and the varied thresholds make the TRI reporting process increasingly complex. MIRS™ software eases the TRI reporting burden for those companies, with its unique Release Calculation feature. MIRS™’ FORM R module provides the user step-by-step guidance to ensure accurate Form R and Form A reporting." "When a user tracks his or her chemical inventory in MIRS™ throughout the year, the Form R report can be completed in as little as 20 minutes. That’s attractive when you consider that the EPA published a recent estimate of 52.1 total hours per Form R response in this year’s Toxic Chemical Release Inventory Reporting Forms and Instructions," Rudnik adds. MIRS™ software provides the EPA certified FORM R report--the only FORM R software approved before the reporting deadline every year since 1988.

MIRS™ is a flexible, integrated modular software package which collects environmental data and produces agency-mandated and ad hoc reports for SARA, TRI, CAA, CWA, RCRA and DOT waste handling, MSDS management and OSHA Hazard Communication. Celebrating more a decade as the easy-to-use EHS modular software package, MIRS™ offers 20+ modules, multi-user and multi-facility management in LAN or WAN installations, and data import from existing corporate systems.

Ann Arbor, MI - A V Systems, Inc., has developed a data conversion program for users of SARA! Compliance Manager (II), and MSDS Browser software of the former Achieve!Technology (also known as OSHA-Soft, Inc.). The conversion program was developed to allow existing Achieve!/OSHA-Soft program users to preserve their data when switching to the MIRS™ program supported by A V Systems since 1988. The conversion program ensures seamless transfer of data from one system to the other. MIRS™ is an integrated environmental management and compliance system which addresses the issues of SARA, TRI, CAA, RCRA, MSDS management and OSHA Hazard Communication. This year-2000 compliant, Windows-based program offers multi-user and multi-facility management on LAN or WAN networks, data import from existing corporate systems such as Purchasing or Accounting, full data-entry validation including CAS numbers, numerous standard and ad hoc reports including EPA-approved Form R, a 14,000-strnog chemical database with 40+ agency lists, year-round training opportunities, and phone technical support and annual product update.
