Locus Technologies Receives 2013 EBJ Business Achievement Award

Environmental Business Journal Recognizes Locus for Growth and Innovation

SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 01/22/14 -- Locus Technologies (Locus) announced today that the Environmental Business Journal® (EBJ) granted the company the 2013 award for Information Technology in the environmental and energy industry for the eighth time in the last 10 years.

Locus was recognized for significantly enhancing its suite of software products, and adding new customers and renewing current ones for both software and verification services.

In 2013 Locus generated record software revenue and added customers in the food and beverage, manufacturing, mining, and railroad industries, as well as had its contract with Los Alamos National Laboratory significantly expanded and extended for an additional four years. The company introduced the Locus platform for sustainability, energy, health and safety, and environmental compliance management and reporting, which offers fully integrated cloud-based software that brings all mission-critical environmental applications together in an ERP-like system. Locus also added new functionality to its flagship EIM software system, including the generation of Annual Radiological Environmental Operating Report (AREOR) Data Summary Tables, the automation of Discharge Monitoring Reports (DMRs), and the ability to support imports and exports from ERPIMS: the system the U.S. Air Force uses for validation and management of data from all environmental projects at its bases.

Additional achievements for Locus in 2013 include earning a Microsoft Gold Application Development competency for demonstrating a "best-in-class" ability and commitment to meet customers' evolving needs, being recognized as one of the top 10 sustainability management software providers by the market analyst firm Verdantix, being listed as the only software provider to make the list of top 200 environmental companies by Engineering News-Record (ENR) magazine, and being named the second largest environmental firm in Silicon Valley by the Silicon Valley Journal.

"We are very proud to receive the prestigious EBJ Information Technology award in environmental business for the eighth time. No other company has accomplished anything close to this level of recognition in the emerging space of cloud-based environmental information management, the on-demand computing space for data management in the environmental industry that Locus pioneered in 1997," said Neno Duplan, President and CEO of Locus. "I believe this highlights Locus' relentless dedication to developing top-notch environmental and sustainability management software systems, and would like to thank both the Locus team, and our customers who have trusted us with the management of their data for making this award possible."

"In what is widely regarded as a stable market, a number of companies exceeded the norms of low single-digit growth with double-digit growth or ambitious ventures into new practice areas or technology development," said Grant Ferrier, president of Environmental Business International Inc. (EBI, San Diego), publisher of Environmental Business Journal. "Locus continues to influence the industry with its forward-thinking product set and eye for customer needs."

The 2013 EBJ awards will be presented at a special ceremony at the Environmental Industry Summit XII in San Diego, Calif. on March 12-14, 2014. The Environmental Industry Summit is an annual three-day executive retreat hosted by EBI Inc.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
