The Locus Platform for Environmental Enterprise Resource Planning
The new platform addresses previous user barriers to software adoption, such as wariness of complex and expensive systems and implementations, and uncertainty of integrating a new platform with current legacy systems. It does this by offering an intuitive interface, the immense flexibility to incorporate business-specific processes, and simple integration options- all with a price tag that won't break the bank. New functionality includes:

1. What was your favorite part about the 2013 EHS Management Forum?
This was my first time at this particular NAEM conference, and it was really eye-opening. Creating an engaged culture of sustainability within a company can be very hard - it was great to hear honesty about mistakes and lessons learned, programs and performance, and to hear how others are facing mounting challenges. We can all learn so much from each other, and the Forum gives us the perfect place to exchange ideas and share best practices.
It was also great to get to spend time with customers face-to-face instead of over the phone. The networking events gave us lots of time to connect with others in a relaxed setting, and the open layout of the exhibit hall made it easy to meet others and exchange ideas.
This is an event that gathers together some of the most influential people in the EHS and Sustainability field. Having so many leaders under the same roof is a rare opportunity, providing the perfect chance to learn from peers in the industry and see firsthand what the newest developments and trends are. It was great to hear about innovations in environmental sustainability tracking, GHG management and carbon disclosure programs, health and safety reporting and compliance management. Ultimately the Forum encourages everyone to work together to drive change within our own companies, while also improving the profession as a whole through collaboration, idea sharing and networking.3. Do you have any advice for those thinking about attending next year's forum?
It's a large event with a lot of attendees and presentations - be sure to take notes so you remember everything once you get back to the office. Take advantage of the sessions - there is a lot to learn! I wish I had attended more of them, and I will be sure to do so next year.
