Why Locus

We believe in SaaS to simplify environmental compliance.

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.

Locus EHS software for compliance & sustainability

Multi-tenancy & configurability

When it comes to choosing an environmental management system, the infrastructure of the software has an enormous impact on its value and effectiveness.  Multi-tenant architecture allows for quick deployment, lower cost, and faster innovation.

This is especially important for EHS software, as the environmental regulatory landscape is changing constantly and rapidly.  The hallmark of multi-tenancy is that all customers share a single code base and infrastructure, so everyone is always up to date. That’s the real cloud—anything else is an impostor.

True multi-tenant architecture and real cloud.

By having every customer on the same line of code and the same version of software, Locus’ SaaS platform for EHS compliance and environmental data management provides real business value: lower cost, better service, and greater customer intimacy.

It also means that no customer is left behind when the software is updated.

And when everyone is on the same version, the result is a community with unprecedented levels of communication and collaboration possibilities.

Why single-tenant systems just don’t cut it

Single-tenant systems are simply not designed for large-scale, on-demand deployments. The internal inefficiencies of maintaining separate physical infrastructure for each customer makes it impossible for vendors to deliver a cost-effective, innovative, high-quality service.

Locus Multi-Tenant Software

Multi-tenancy means more value for you.

Benefit from the wisdom of the crowd

New features and functionality are released for all customers (even if they were developed at a specific customer’s request).

No surprise costs

A pay-as-you-go pricing model means costs are predictable and always under your control.

Rapid product release cycles

Any reported issues or requests are handled quickly and appropriately by our experienced customer service and development teams.

Integrate with existing software

Ask about our comprehensive integration options, either as part of a mashup or a plugin to a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS).

Reliable and consistent performance

Our robust cloud systems were designed to support a high-demand network of customers.

Efficient service delivery

Customer satisfaction in our EHS software solutions is our #1 priority.

No more patches or upgrades

Automatically get rolling feature updates as soon as they’re released.

No maintenance hassles

Since all your environmental and EHS compliance data is stored in the cloud, we’ll handle the regular maintenance— freeing up your in-house resources for more important work.

Configurability matters.

Choosing any software solution is no longer just about what features and functionalities exist in a vendor’s application.  It’s also important to consider how easy it is to create and configure custom features, functionality, or completely new applications to solve the problems you’ll face in months or years to come.

Locus SaaS for EHS compliance is fully configurable by end users. That means if your domain users have an idea for a new solution for some problem your organization is facing— or if they need to modify an existing app to fit your business processes— they can do it themselves (we can also help guide the process).  There’s no need to engage costly software developers.

Our software is designed with total configuration in mind, so you can adapt it to your unique business needs— instead of having to change your workflow to fit the confines of the software.

Locus Cloud Security

We want you to have full confidence in your EHS compliance data security. Customer data is stored with Amazon Web Services, one of the most advanced and secure cloud-hosting providers on the planet.

AWS Advantages

All data is stored in highly secure AWS data centers, which are available in multiple regions across the world. Encryption in transit with TLS across all services. AWS services and technologies built from the ground up to provide resilience in the face of DDoS (Denial of Service) attacks.

Administrative controls

Set up role-based permissions to assign view-only or full editing privileges to specific users or user groups; manage password complexity requirements; and apply expiration dates for file and folder access.

Built-in administrative auditing

Data that is encrypted at rest can be manipulated but the content cannot be read by authorized personnel. Data that is not encrypted at rest can be manipulated and can be read by authorized personnel; however, any such action is audited, and audit logs are reviewed by Locus IT staff on a routine basis.

Robust data backup

Customer data are located within the AWS US-West region but can be easily placed in other regions as needed. With AWS, Locus can offer secure, durable, and cost-effective data archiving and long-term backup for our customers as well. Restore options can be very fast to meet customer needs, should a restore ever be needed.

State-of-the-art security

Only authorized personnel at Locus have access to the customer data for the purpose of the relevant system’s operations and maintenance. Our cloud hosting partner AWS has no access to any customer data.

Multi-tiered protection

Our entire system is secured at an infrastructure, application and network level— including firewall and intrusion detection, virus protection, and encrypted storage. Any access to customer data is logged and reviewed according to Locus internal security protocols and SOC1 and SOC2 policies.

Mobile Enabled

Locus’ comprehensive, highly-configurable mobile application is designed for easy and accurate environmental data collection on the go. The app eliminates the need for manual data entry and is built with configurable data collection types and offline data capture capability.

Locus Mobile works both online and offline and takes advantage of the most advanced technology for ad hoc sampling, additional field data checks, dynamic forms, and powerful mapping tools.

24/7 access to your compliance software in the cloud

One platform for your EHS compliance and sustainability information— and always up to date.  Track, manage, and report your environmental data from the office, from the facility, or while you’re on the go.  Whether you need to access real-time or historical data, you can set up one-click dashboards for immediate, actionable insight.

Consolidate and centralize your EHS compliance

Spreadsheets have their place.  But when it comes to managing your organization’s EHS compliance and sustainability initiatives, adopting a proven cloud software solution is the only approach that guarantees more collaboration, better data quality, and full confidence in maintaining regulatory compliance.

Total control over all your environmental data

Complete data editing and auditing features make it easy to track down issues and discrepancies as soon as they occur.  And our automation module provides dashboards to remotely operate treatment systems, or to connect to wireless sensor networks for real-time access to your systems information.

Check your EHS compliance initiatives from anywhere

Your analytical or compliance data is always accessible in the cloud— from any location and with most devices. Use configurable environmental dashboards for immediate, real-time insight into every aspect of your environmental and H&S operations— compliance, sustainability, energy, water, air, GHG, H&S metrics and many more KPI indicators— so you can immediately see what’s working and what’s not.

Centralized database for multiple sites

Get instant access to relevant data in real time. Locus EHS software consolidates all your environmental, compliance, and sustainability information and provides flexible data export, reporting, and visualization options— so you can make immediate, informed decisions.

Powerful reports and analytics

Access real-time analytics and easily configurable reports, and easily drill down to the raw data details.  See data and trends for a single site or across multiple sites to identify root causes, detect patterns or trends, & predict outcomes.

Instant information with one click

Organize all your environmental compliance data within a single, powerful application, then monitor and report from a comprehensive and readily accessible dashboard. This gives you the power to quickly build and drill down into analytical reports to get actionable insights across your organization.

Visualize for insight

Our cutting-edge GIS technology is designed to make it easier to monitor and manage environmental data for multiple sites.  Configurable location cluster markers make it easy to organize multiple nearby locations, and zoom in closer to see the individual markers— keeping your data meaningful at any scale.

Reduce your environmental impact

Our cloud software helps you manage your organization’s environmental footprint. But the environmental benefits of Locus software go even further. Cloud architecture is inherently green— promoting energy consumption reduction and the efficient use of computing resources.

Improve your environmental data quality

Without a centralized environmental and EHS compliance software system, end users often turn to using scattered spreadsheets, in-house databases, or disjointed silo systems.  This makes critical environmental information difficult to access, and input multiple times— resulting in questionable data quality and increased costs.

Locus’ centralized cloud software solutions for EHS compliance and sustainability information management will make your environmental data bulletproof and accessible from anywhere, anytime.

Avoid costly mistakes

Comprehensive and fully configurable reporting and task tracking capabilities will help your team reduce operational risk, and maintain full confidence that you’ll always meet EHS compliance requirements on schedule.

Save time and resources

By streamlining your data collection and monitoring activities with mobile field data collection, automated reporting, and notifications, you’ll reduce your team’s workload for compliance-related activities, and empower them to deliver better data, faster.

Clean EHS compliance data = better decisions

Prevent duplicate data entry with our integrated mobile and automation solutions, and set up validation checks to make sure data fits your requirements and constraints as soon as it is entered into the system.  You can prevent bad data from being entered, or just receive notifications to decide how to handle it before it enters the final tables for storage and reporting.
