Root Cause Analysis Software

Sologic®'s proprietary Causelink® software is your partner for strategic root cause analyses and investigations. Included with Sologic Facilitator training, Causelink is intuitive, user-friendly and a powerful ally to help your team more effectively apply the Sologic method to real-world problems. The RCA reports that the Causelink standalone version generates can be synchronized with a centralized database through our Causelink Enterprise version, which offers robust dashboards and reports that enable users to mine, monitor and report on the data.

"Causelink allowed our team to complete a fatality investigation in 24 hours and implement company-wide corrective actions within 72 hours."      -- Brian Pelech, Safety Manager, Gerdau Ameristeel Corporation

"Before Sologic RCA training, I downloaded the trial version of Causelink and was up and designing within minutes. The logic was so easy to follow, it literally took me minutes to figure out. This software is by far the easiest I have used in implementation.  The design was clearly done with the end user in mind.  It is a comfortable, logical layout and the graphics help to paint the picture of what you need to see. Since class, I have used it for RCAs and love it even more!"      -- Bryan Morrison, Sr. Safety Supervisor, VECA Electric & Technologies

Step-by-step analysis

Sologic Causelink takes the user through a logical process – from initial data gathering through to final reports and resolution plans. Professional incident investigators, facilitators, and even participants are all better equipped to understand and document even the most complex problems in a way that's much more robust than root cause analysis templates found elsewhere. Users realize immediate results through deeper knowledge of the cause-and-effect relationships inherent in their challenges and incidents.
