Features At-a-Glance

User-defined one-stop location for accessing all information in Hedgehog. Manage To-Do Lists, Adaptable Widgets, Notifications, and data analysis.
Management Center
Multi-functional grids allow users to find records, launch workflows, and create ad hoc reports. Modeled after familiar industry-standard software for ease of use and positive adoption. Find what you need with Google-like searches, advanced filtering options and powerful on-demand reporting and access to canned system reports.
Control Panel
Administration workflows allow you to define your use of Hedgehog without customization. Define everything from security to drop-down lists, custom forms and templates.
The Nexus is the communication hub for tracking anything that is not routinely scheduled such as complaints, service requests, plan reviews, media inquiries, and incidents.
Report Writer
An integrated report writer with a large library of customizable reports allows agency staff, with proper training and permissions, to create custom reports, letters, and labels on their own rather than outsourcing costly custom report development.
Multilingual Capability
Hedgehog provides powerful multilingual capability for inspectors and communities. Manage EH workflows in English, French, and Spanish.
Inspection Quarantine
Disclose only those program areas, facilities, and inspections you choose. The ability to quarantine information until approved to be published.
