Latest National Climate Assessment Reinforces Severity of Climate Change
The recently produced study, known as the National Climate Assessment, has found that the effects of human-induced climate change are being felt across the United States. The involved scientists found that an average warming of less than two degrees Fahrenheit over most areas of the country in the last century has resulted in a decrease in water in dry regions, an increase in torrential rains in wet regions, and an escalation in more severe droughts and wildfires.

New Locus Platform Debuts with a Great Start and Customer Acceptance
Locus introduced the all new web platform in November of last year, and since then has been busy demonstrating it to existing and potential new customers. The reception of the new platform has been nothing but positive. Customers love the new dynamic architecture, and the ability to tailor it and even build their own applications on Locus' platform without any coding. Locus platform allows customers to:
Coming Soon: Enhanced Locus Mobile Application
Locus is currently working toward a significant update to its suite of mobile applications. The improved Locus mobile app will offer the same great functionality that the eWell app currently does, only with more configurable options and broader scope. Not only will mobile users be able to collect and upload additional field data remotely, but they will also be provided with more real-time data validation, a variety of new functionality and options to determine what they would like to record, many additional field data checks, and better GIS and GPS interpretation.
These new features will help users accomplish their business specific requirements, and simplify their EH&S compliance and data management processes. Users will be able to collect many new types of field data, perform audits, and complete work and compliance activities on-the-go with their mobile devices.
Free Training Webinars
Locus is offering free, routine online training sessions for all of our applications. These webinars are meant to:
Stephen Cox, Locus Outside Business Representative
Putting a Focus on Water
Locus Outside Business Representative Stephen Cox (above) attended both events and represented Locus at our booth.Q: What do you think the benefits are to attending events like this?
With any conference or tradeshow, it's nice to actually be in front of someone you're talking to, and to have all the latest technology and products under one roof. These events are educational, but more importantly they provide the perfect opportunity to meet and strengthen relationships with others who work in the industry.
Q: What were your favorite moments or parts of either event?
Locus has broken into the water utilities market recently, so it was great to spread the word and to hear from attendees that there is a genuine need for the solutions we offer. Having our software systems create a niche in individual markets, such as drinking and wastewater utilities, has been an exciting thing to be a part of.
But my favorite parts overall might have to be attending the on-site mixers. It's always great to be able to take your "business hat" off for a little while, and to just take advantage of getting to know people in a more relaxed environment.
Q: Do you have any advice for future attendees and/or exhibitors?
My general advice would be for attendees to jot down some questions and concerns that may be brought up during the technical sessions, and then to be sure to visit the exhibit hall. Take some time to browse and discuss the new ideas and technologies that are being presented, because a lot of the time you may find something that would address one of those questions or concerns you had written down. At the end of the day, it's always helpful to put a name with a face for future business discussions and needs.
