EarthSoft Corporate Overview 2009

  1. 1. Introducing Environmental Quality Information System Copyright EarthSoft 2009
  2. 2. • The most widely used system in the world to manage environmental subsurface, soil, and sediment sample data, including analytical data. • EQuIS is also used to manage geotechnical, limnological, air, and other sample types. • Core EQuIS 5 Module: •Schema in MS SQL Server or Oracle •Professional •EZView •Other Modules: • EQuIS for ArcGIS and EQuIS for ArcGIS Server • EQuIS Data Processor (EDP) and Enterprise EDP • EQuIS Information Agents (EIAs) • Intelligent Data Entry Forms (IDEFs) • Sample Planning Module (SPM) • Automated Data Review (ADR) • Several EQuIS Case Studies show dramatic cost savings in data management expenses.
  3. 3. • Founded in 1994. • EQuIS data checkers are used by over 400 labs in the US, Europe and Australia. • EQuIS is used by over 350 consultants worldwide. • EQuIS is used by 6 of 10 EPA Regions and 17 states.
  4. 4. Just a few of our customers… EPA Regions 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6 & 10, States of NJ, CO, WV DEP, DE, RI, NV, NE, CA, MS, WI, Navy, Army, Fermi, Argonne, Russian EPA, Army Corps, DOT, and many others … Barrick Gold, BP, Shell, PPG, Cemex, BASF, Olin, Rohm & Haas, IBM, Dow, Eastman Chemical, Peabody Energy, and many others ... Port of NY/NJ, King County, City of Denver, Santa Clara County, San Bernardino County, Marathon County, and many others…. AECOM, Arcadis, Black & Veatch, Burns & McDonnell, CDM, Conestoga – Rovers, CH2M Hill, ERM, Mactec, Haley & Aldrich, Kleinfelder, Ecology & Environment, EA Engineering, Roux, O’Brien & Gere, Shaw Group, URS, WorleyParsons, over 300 consultants… TestAmerica, Lancaster, Pace, and 400 other labs…
  5. 5. A Paradigm Shift… Oil and Gas firm Days to Characterize a Refinery Required all labs to use EDP lab data checker. 200 Required all 150 contractors 100 to submit EQuIS EDDs. 50 Order of magnitude 0 productivity gain Before EQuIS and GMS After EQuIS and GMS after training and 4 projects.
  6. 6. • Your Data are the center of the universe • Not the CAD drawing, GIS view, Report, Statistical Output, etc. • Protect the Data! Make it editable to few, but available to many. • First address Data Quality, then Data Usability. • Data Usability without Data Quality is ‘Garbage In - Garbage Out’. • Bad data can make beautiful graphs! • But, Good data leads to Good Decisions. • Open Systems - Don’t let your data be held hostage! • Proprietary Systems have no chance of building volume. • In the long run, only volume standards matter.
  7. 7. • EarthSoft is a software company. We have a great mix of environmental engineers and computer scientists. We want to team with consulting companies that provide EQuIS services, allowing us to focus on product development. • With high volume, we can continue to invest extensively in development every year. We will track Microsoft, Oracle, ESRI, and other market platform standards. • EarthSoft operates a very well-trained multi-person Help Desk that has received many positive reviews from our client base. • EQuIS is OPEN - We will license our clients Source Code and Data Model. Many other companies offer innovation on top of EQuIS and EQuIS services.
  8. 8. • Many consultants offer EQuIS services. • Other companies innovate on top of EQuIS. • Many labs support EQuIS data deliverable formats. • EQuIS is far less expensive than trying to write (and support) your own system. • If you want a hosted system, several consultants will host EQuIS for you.
  9. 9. Just ask some of our clients! We have many References and Case Studies, including: State of CA, WV, TX (and several other states) EPA (several) Army Corps Agip/ENI Shell Global Solutions Group Cemex Arcadis, CDM, ENSR, Golder, O’Brien and Gere, URS And many others!
  10. 10. • First Created an Electronic Data Submittal (EDS) format for Lab results and QA/QC data in 2000. • Standardized Spatial Projection System. • Contracted with geological student for entry of geologic data and QA/QC parameters. • Historic data converted by DB administrator on an as-needed basis. • Over 75 large facilities loaded 2000 – 2007. • 2008 Update: • Migrating Water Division STORET data to EQuIS. • EQuIS to be used for WQX node.
