EarthSoft is pleased to announce that five US EPA Regions have upgraded their EQuIS configurations to EQuIS Enterprise 6. These US EPA Regions include Regions 2,3,4,5 and 9. EQuIS 3 was first used by EPA Region 5 in 1999, and they have now upgraded with EarthSoft through two product families.
Many of the largest environmental databases in the world are in EQuIS. EQuIS Enterprise 6 is a completely web dashboard-driven environmental data management, decision support, and data analysis platform and is suited for large multiple-facility portfolios where PC databases are overwhelmed. With ESRI’s ArcGIS Online integration, environmental professionals may quickly generate mapped labels and review project environmental data. EQuIS Enterprise 6 includes workflows for environmental data collection operations including EQuIS Data Processor (EDP), the most widely used EDD checking tool in the world.
Released in mid-2013, EQuIS Enterprise 6 is offered on-premises, or can be hosted by either EarthSoft, EarthSoft Business Partners, or multiple third parties. EQuIS Online, EarthSoft’s Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) product, is experiencing rapid growth. An emerging licensing model is a hybrid SaaS, where perpetual licenses of EQuIS are hosted by EarthSoft.
EPA Regions have Distribution Licenses of the EQuIS Data Processor (EDP) and as such provide EDP for no charge to all contracted labs and consultants. EDP has been written into standard operating procedure for thousands of projects around the world. All major labs in North America have EDP and use it regularly.
Several US EPA Regions also have the EQuIS Data Gathering Engine (EDGE), EarthSoft’s popular mobile software for field data collection. While anyone can put a form on a tablet, EarthSoft has included the EDP, providing the same level of data quality enforcement that labs use for the chemistry EDDs. EDP and EDGE significantly improve data collection, quality and efficiency, an unbeatable combination encompassing the entire workflow.
EarthSoft CEO Mitch Beard said, “We are proud that we’ve worked for the US EPA for more than a decade and that use of EQuIS is growing within the top environmental regulatory agency in the world.”
