The Silicon Review
We believe that every company that wants to be credible with their environmental reporting must own their data and organize it in a centralized database on the web.
Founded in 1997 in Silicon Valley, Locus Technologies is a leading provider of enterprise Software-as-a-Service solutions, with a focus on EHS compliance, water quality management, health, safety, and sustainability (EHS+S) compliance. Locus pioneered the first true multi-tenant SaaS platform for EHS industry since its inception.
The company develops comprehensive EHS software for businesses, organizations, and governmental agencies of all sizes and industries worldwide. Locus is known for its environmental information management (EIM) system— its industry-leading software for the entire environmental sampling and analysis workflow. The firm’s Locus Platform software provides fully configurable, next-generation multi-tenant SaaS platform, applications, and services to help its customers to better manage their EHS+S operations.
On-Demand Access to All Your Environmental Data
Locus was born out of a vision for its first product, Locus EIM (Environmental Information Management). The firm 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 Locushas 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, Locus is constantly learning from its peers in technology and software development to stay on the cutting edge in cloud software.

Locus: “Our Customers Have The Best Ideas.”
One of the major ways that the company 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, Locus 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 Locus receive from its customers have made its EHS software great.
Standing Tall Among Competition
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. The 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.
By having every customer on the same line of code and the same version of the 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.
Locus uses the latest technologies and best practices to protect your identity and your compliance, sustainability, and other environmental information:
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. Easily configure business-specific data collection needs, access sampling forms and enter data offline, and synchronize data to the cloud on-demand for final review, storing, managing, and reporting.
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 to for immediate, actionable insight.
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.
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.

Meet the Thought Leader
Neno Duplan, Founder, and CEO: As Founder and CEO of Locus Technologies, 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 1980s, while conducting research as a graduate student at Carnegie Mellon, Dr. Duplan developed the first prototype system for an environmental information management database. This discover 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.
“At Locus, we believe the key to an organization's environmental stewardship strategy lies in its approach to EHS compliance management— we design our software with this vision in mind.”
