The University of Texas at El Paso Selects Locus Technologies Cloud Software for Compliance Management

UTEP Main Campus to Integrate Environmental Management via Locus Cloud

SAN FRANCISCO, CA and EL PASO, TX -- (Marketwire) -- 05/21/12 -- The University of Texas at El Paso (UTEP) Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) Department has selected Locus Technologies' (Locus') award-winning ePortal™ platform to provide a comprehensive, integrated system for monitoring and managing its compliance needs at its main campus in El Paso.

The UTEP EH&S department is responsible for a variety of regulatory compliance issues at the main campus, which is undergoing a major expansion. More than $290 million in new construction and renovation projects have been under way on the UTEP campus. University facilities services are working systematically to design new buildings to meet LEED specifications, re-design landscaping to conserve water, and retrofit existing facilities to reduce energy and water consumption. EH&S compliance activities are an integral part of all of these undertakings.

Prior to selecting ePortal, each person responsible for individual compliance activities was required to log tasks in Outlook calendars. Now, they will be able to centralize all activities into one, web-based Locus database. ePortal will provide the UTEP EH&S team with visibility and transparency from a full campus perspective of all activities, asset management, and campus construction to help ensure that the university is complying with all regulations. The university's EH&S management will be able to take a more holistic view of its operations, enabling it to reduce departmental expenditures.

"Organizations of all types are looking beyond Outlook and spreadsheets to address their environmental and other compliance issues," said Neno Duplan, president and CEO of Locus Technologies. "We are very pleased to become a partner of choice to the UTEP growth strategy by providing comprehensive software platform to better manage their compliance needs."

"Management of our complex set of activities requires robust software architectures via the Cloud. We found in Locus' platform a solution to meet our growth to Tier One head-on," said Robert Moss, Assistant Vice President for Environmental Health and Safety. "By working with Locus, we will improve our ability to manage EH&S activities, which will in turn, improve our effectiveness. Locus' ePortal helps us fulfill our commitment to sustainable growth as we prepare the campus for the evolving educational needs of our 21st century students."
