The Solution

MonitorPro was implemented into the environment department in 2005. Since then, the team has become increasingly skilled in the use of MonitorPro and its functions. They have utilised the technology available to develop their own high frequency reporting dashboards and designed extra automation into their system.

The environmental monitoring process continues to improve and grow and in 2018, the team upgraded to the latest version of MonitorPro.
