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.
Project Manager, Kent Corp/GPC
We achieved ‘a sea change in terms of data quality, environmental risk reduction, and overall process cost reduction of over 50%’ by implementing EIM.
Our collaboration with Locus has been both productive and innovative, and your staff have been very enjoyable to work with over the past few years. We look forward to our work together in the future, and to seeing where technology and creativity take us.

Locus is a great company…very qualified. They automated a manual process, saving us the daily labor costs…This essentially paperless system is accessible to anyone who needs it at any time.
The Locus Internet-based Environmental Dashboard gives us better control of the remediation system, with faster response to problems and quicker access to real-time data.

By adopting Locus’ systems, Ascometal cut its environmental costs and standardized its information management processes.
Director of Environmental Programs
We see tremendous potential for process improvements for both Locus’ enterprise customers and NEMAC’s government partners by combining resources and integrating results of climate change and other large-scale monitoring into Locus’ enterprise-centered applications. Integration of the information on weather and climate change monitoring will enable organizations to easily analyze, optimize, and mitigate their energy and emissions.
Director of NEMAC, UNC Asheville
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.
Sustainability Programs Manager, Del Monte Foods
Developing our resources prudently and efficiently, while identifying and managing potential environmental impacts related to our operations, are critically important to Roca Honda Resources. Locus’ software will allow us to share information more quickly and efficiently between our field operations and our scientists, and evaluate data faster, ultimately contributing to a more environmentally sound management practice and efficient operation.
Mr. John DeJoia
Senior Vice President of New Mexico operations and Manager, Roca Honda Resources (now Energy Fuels)
High-quality environmental data is one of the key drivers that will help us meet our cleanup goals. Moving forward, our data will help us be more sustainable and better stewards of the environment. Organizing these massive volumes of data, and making them available to the public, will help demonstrate our commitment to openness and environmental compliance.
Division leader for Waste and Environmental Services, Los Alamos National Laboratory
We are very pleased to join with Locus to bring an integrated and elegant solution to address the nuclear industry’s Tritium monitoring needs. Our experience in producing hundreds of different types of monitors for different users, coupled with Locus’ market leader position in Cloud Computing-based environmental data management, will benefit our joint clients.

Locus EIM has improved our productivity through automatic data quality checks, real-time data queries and graphics, and automated data tables for regulatory reports. EIM’s ability to manage our data, including direct laboratory upload of sampling results, saves us and our client’s time and money. EIM’s ability to manage multiple sites within a single database is perfect for our larger clients.
Vice President, Orion Environmental
ERS is very pleased with our selection of Locus EIM. We provide professional services at complex environmental sites and had over 10 years of data and hundreds of thousands of records that were becoming increasingly difficult to manage using desktop systems. With EIM, we can now quickly access our data, and more importantly share the data with our clients.
One key factor in the selection of Locus EIM was the on-demand nature of the system, which allowed us to quickly get up and running. Being web-based, we can access the data from the field and the office, and also invite our clients to review their own data 24/7, which is a huge plus for ERS and the Port.
PG, Environmental Risk Services
Advances in technology in recent years have made instant access to environmental data a reality. Coding this data by geography and making it available on the Web will help government and industry expose information they have been collecting for years and put it to beneficial use. Locus can help businesses and government entities characterize their environmental problems faster and easier, so that valuable technical resources can be spent designing solutions, instead of searching for information.
