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.

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.
