World’s Largest Retailer’s Early Adoption of ARTEMIS Generates Insight

Leading National Retailer

Solution Overview

Client:

World’s Largest Retailer

Business Challenge:

Our client required a web-based platform that their program managers could use to track and monitor the progress and completion of all stormwater and wastewater projects at each of their sites.

Solution:

A fully-functional web‑based environmental management information system (EMIS).

Results:

The client gained real-time reporting, consistent data entry and management, photo management, and a 24/7 dashboard to track all sites nationwide.

Challenge

Since 2002, Apex has provided a broad range of services to this Fortune 50 company in all 50 states. We have completed tens of thousands of permitting, compliance, environmental, and construction-related projects at their facilities and within their legal, distribution, transportation, and logistics departments. Our services include stormwater, engineering, wastewater, aboveground and underground storage tanks, solid/hazardous waste, brownfields, industrial hygiene/indoor air quality, and potable water, across a broad geography.

As our program support expanded, our client required a web-based platform that their program managers could use to track and monitor the progress and completion of all of Apex’s stormwater and wastewater projects at each of their sites.

Solution

To meet their requirement, Apex initially developed a standard web‑based platform and various mobile apps to support the program. However, as the number of stores within our client’s portfolio grew and the challenges became more complex, managing the large amounts of data generated daily and monthly became more problematic. The mobile app also experienced issues such as incompatibility challenges, and the need for constant updating.

With a deep understanding of our client’s challenges, Apex decided a more scalable and robust technological solution was needed. We quickly developed and deployed a new mobile application to align perfectly with their requirements for both routine maintenance services and out of scope/repair activities. Once the mobile app was implemented, we began to create a fully-functional web-based environmental management information system (EMIS), known as, ARTEMIS.

Results

ARTEMIS addressed our client’s most pressing challenges. With it, they gained real-time reporting, consistent data entry and management, photo management, and a 24/7 dashboard. What began as a focused stormwater and wastewater management tool is now a powerful insight and analysis engine that is used to keep all of their sites on track nationwide. Below are just a few examples. Today, nearly every service we provide for this leading retailer is fed into ARTEMIS via mobile forms developed specifically for the requested scopes of work, generating a real-time system of environmental oversight.
