Objective

BA With an EMS consisting of 7 stand alone systems, each addressing a different aspect of their environmental management program, Campbell’s wanted to overcome the limitations of this fragmented approach and unify the functions of these stand-alone systems within one integrated solution.

Extra

Limitations of Previous EMS

  • Previous EMS consisted of 7 stand alone systems, 5 inhouse and 2 purchased systems.
  • Subsystems managed by various corporate personnel causing inconsistent documentation.
  • Access to data from subsystems was limited by availability of corporate personnel.
  • Gathering and disseminating environmental metrics data was time consuming.
  • Unable to assess the overall compliance of individual locations and company as a whole. 

Requirements for New EMS

  • Web-based system accessible to employees globally.
  • Hierarchical security functionality to control access by job and location.
  • Ability to import and unify historical data from previous EMS.
  • Provide comprehensive environmental management, energy and sustainability tracking.
  • Maintain a historical record of all environmental activities for internal and external audit purposes.
  • Facilitate real-time environmental and sustainability data reporting, trending and analysis.
  • Ability to develop company specific applications without need for IT support.
