Environmental software helps organizations with the tracking, reporting and enforcement of internal environmental policies as well as compliance with government regulations and the ability to incorporate environmental concerns into their risk management programs.
To manage the changing regulatory climate, Locus Technology decided to make an easier way for enterprises to reach 100% EHS compliance— simply by using its environmental management software to improve their organizations.Before anyone was talking about “the cloud” or “Software as a Service” (SaaS), we were building cloud applications to manage the overwhelming amount of environmental and EHS compliance data generated by its customers’ responses to environmental regulations.
Locus was born out of a vision for its first product, Locus EIM (Environmental Information Management). The company knew that developing the solution for delivery via the Internet was the best and smartest technical approach.
Since then, it has maintained its pioneering attitude, even as it has become a leading provider of enterprise cloud computing software (SaaS) for environmental, air, water, energy, and sustainability information management.And as the only major EHS compliance and sustainability management software provider headquartered in Silicon Valley, the company is constantly learning from its peers in technology and software development to stay on the cutting edge in cloud software.
Reliable Management Software Services
GHG Verification: As the only software vendor that is an approved GHG verifier under the California Air Resources Board (CARB), Locus’ certifications and experience (along with its expertise in developing GHG software) demonstrates our deep domain knowledge and commitment to keeping on top of this ever-changing space.
The company helped hundreds of customers meet their GHG reporting requirements. In 2018, Locus completed more verifications in California than any other verification body. Verifiers are ready to help with accredited staff in all industries.
Software Implementation & Configuration: Because Locus is a pure software-as-a-service (SaaS) company, you’ll be able to find information faster and reduce cycle time for data loading, validation, management, training, and reporting.
But that’s not all— you’ll experience a much faster initial deployment and implementation than you would get with an on-premises solution. Take advantage of its software implementation services will save time and money and maximize the value you get from its solution.
Technical Support & Training:Locus offers U.S.-based technical support for all of its products, through both phone and email, during business hours in most primary time zones. Its support team members are domain experts on its products, so you can always expect a fast, knowledgeable resolution to your issues.
Its modern support ticket tracking system ensures each issue is logged, reviewed, and resolved quickly, while keeping the user informed throughout the process.
Building Relationship with Customers
One of the major ways that Locus stays up-to-date with the changing landscape of environmental management is by building personal relationships with its customers— Directors of EHS, Data Managers, Sustainability Programs Officers, and CEOs— who face the responsibility of organizing and analyzing environmental data for all sorts of industries.
From local water utilities to multinational manufacturing corporations to federal government research agencies, it knows about the environmental data and compliance management challenges that are shared across most organizations, as well as what tends to be unique for every company or agency.
The ideas, feedback, and inspiration it receivesfrom our customers have made its EHS software great. The company loves listening to its actual users to identify more intuitive solutions and new ways to improve its products and its service.
Headquartered in the heart of Silicon Valley, Locus creates innovative cloud EHS&S software for businesses of all sizes. With over 23 years of software experience, Locus is the popular choice for many Fortune 500 companies and government agencies. All Locus software solutions—Locus Platform, Locus EIM, and Locus Mobile—are multi-tenant SaaS applications designed to streamline an organization’s environmental compliance, sustainability, reporting, and management challenges.
Meet the Expert
Neno Duplan, Founder & CEO: Dr. Duplan spent his career combining his understanding of environmental science with a vision of how to gather, aggregate, organize, and analyze environmental data to help organizations better manage and report their environmental and sustainability footprints. During the 1980’s, while conducting research as a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon, Dr. Duplan developed the first prototype system for an environmental information management database. This discovery eventually lead to the formation of Locus Technologies in 1997.
As technology evolved and new guidelines for environmental stewardship expanded, so has the vision Dr. Duplan has held for Locus. With the company’s deployment of the world’s first commercial Software-as-Service (SaaS) product for environmental information management in 1999 to the Locus Mobile solution in 2014, today Dr. Duplan continues to lead and challenge his team to be the leading provider of cloud-based EH&S and sustainability software.
Dr. Duplan holds a Ph.D. in Civil Engineering from the University of Zagreb, Croatia, an M.S. in Civil Engineering from Carnegie-Mellon, and a B.S. in Civil Engineering from the University of Split, Croatia. He also attended advanced Management Training at Stanford University.
