Port Kembla has a great deal of environmental data to manage with a corresponding need to routinely prepare NPI (National Pollution Inventory) and LBL (Load Based Licensing) reports. In an organisation of this size the task can be laborious and potentially error prone.
Managing and Reporting Environmental Data Prior to the implementation of MonitorPro - Desktop the reporting process was a matter of data retrieval, manipulation and cutting/pasting into Microsoft Word.
More recently we have enhanced the ability of Port Kembla to rapidly produce environmental reports. Each Quarter the operation produces an environmental report which contains a very large amount of data and runs to approximately 175 pages — 165 pages of which are data from monitoring or derived from monitoring.
Much of this includes tables and graphs and in some cases rolling averages are calculated and compared to threshold permissible limits. This can be quite a task.
Because MonitorPro - Desktop uses Crystal Reports as its reporting engine we have been able to produce a report template which populates much of the data for Port Kembla’s quarterly report which a few mouse clicks saving vast amounts of time compared to how it used to be done as well as reducing errors.
"Thanks for your efforts on developing MonitorPro to what we want. The guys here are absolutely convinced of it's value - and looking forward to taking it to the next stage with the interface. A large part of this is the service and attention you have given us. I really appreciate this and thank you for it."
