Managing water quality data is critical to our clients’ projects. Water ARC is a new service provided by Carollo that integrates and enhances our capabilities to collect this data through field analytical, pilot testing, and laboratory-based treatability testing services. Key parts of this new service are our improved management of field analytical and pilot testing equipment, nationwide, with Locus Platform and streamlined collection and analysis of various data sources with Locus EIM. Incorporating these innovative tools in our project work helps us achieve a higher level of efficiency in managing quality data for our clients.

In selecting our data management system, we had a few criteria that we wanted to improve upon. We needed to be able to generate alerts based on data. We needed something that was mobile-enabled so that our field staff could use it. Our IT staff strongly preferred software hosted in the cloud so they wouldn’t have to support or interact with it.
We were also interested in the option to expand beyond just environmental data management, to get away from this “one app for one task” approach. We looked at a lot of products—most of them satisfied some of these criteria, but not others. We had a good experience with Locus EIM for our drinking water data, so we discussed our needs with Locus and they recommended their new Locus Platform. It satisfied all our requirements.
Locus gave us in-person training, and as we developed our applications they were able to support us with very good response time. The user interfaces for individual users (as well as for me when I was developing custom applications) were very intuitive. Locus was always there to advise us on how to implement the more advanced features.

The scalable, easy-to-use configuration in Locus Platform allows us to standardize our waste management and reporting process, and integrating with Locus Mobile simplifies data collection and container management at our waste-generating facilities.
Locus Platform helps our Waste Management resources to more effectively track, manage, and report information to regulatory agencies, facility managers, and corporate staff, and we can completely customize the solution using the built-in Configuration Workbench tool.

I wanted to take a moment to acknowledge the outstanding support Kent Corp/GPC has received from the Locus team assigned to our environmental compliance log project. After nearly a year of meetings, planning, building, testing, training, and preparations, we are implementing the third and final phase of our Locus Platform at GPC on Mon, Feb 29.
Moving to the Locus Platform has been a significant culture change for GPC, and at times, this has been a challenging process. The Locus Project team has been extremely patient and tolerant throughout the entire project. This team navigated their way through a multitude of decisions, changes to decisions, and even more requested changes from GPC with patience that must have been challenging at times. If they were ever frustrated with our team, they did not display this emotion during any of our calls or review/training sessions.

Thank you for your effort and excellent work. We appreciate the fast delivery schedule of the new developments. We are specially satisfied with the improvement of the user friendly portal.

Not only does Locus’ cloud-based system enable us to see our progress more quickly and easily because of the reporting customization and graphics, but Locus truly understands the science behind the metrics, and acts as another set of eyes and a trusted partner to Del Monte in validating our data.
By working with Locus, we will improve our ability to analyze and forecast our reliance on critical environmental resources, which will help Del Monte meet its sustainability goals. Management of our complex set of activities requires robust software architectures that are best delivered via the Cloud. We found all of these in Locus’ platform.
