The management and analyses of the environmental data and the compulsory reporting to the government are big challenges to the environmental departments (Ex.: waste management, air pollution prevention, water protection, obligatory governmental reporting and environmental costs). It is an expectation of both the management and the production to have up to date and precise information and reporting capabilities. We needed an integrated solution and for this we chose DENKSTATT Hungary Ltd’s ENVIRODATA environmental management software.
What was the challenge?
Due to the large number of sites at Holcim Hungary Ltd., the environmental data management and compulsory governmental reporting were very time consuming and difficult. To simplify the process and make it more transparent we needed a multi-user solution, where the affected departments can input their data directly into the system. It also needed to be able to handle user-permissions, so people could only access information relevant for their specific positions.
What has been done?
During the implementation of the ENVIRODATA software the first step was to setup with DENKSTATT Hungary Ltd. a project organization. The project team specified the relevant data circles and coordinated the basic data entry. With this basic data a DEMO database could be established. After testing the DEMO database it was put into an installer and given to Holcim IT, so we could install it on the local computers. After this the education of the employees started and finally with enough knowledge acquired, the software was approved to go live. Throughout the whole implementation process we enjoyed the assistance and support of the DENKSTATT Hungary Ltd. consultants.
What was the concret benefit?
The ENVIRODATA software helps maintaining environmental data both on a site and on a summarized level, creating reports (compulsory and non-compulsory) and minimizing administration duties and it is also a good controlling tool.
The software is fully automated, the time needed to create the compulsory governmental reports was reduced drastically and so the employees could use the time saved by less administration for relevant work in the fields of sustainability and environmental protection.
Feedback of Holcim
“Our employees got a good tool to support their work. The time needed for administration was reduced to a minimum, so they could use the spare time to do substantive environmental work and make the production process more environmental friendly. The ENVIRODATA software has been working since its implementation without any disturbances and the availability is over 99%.
Based on our requests and comments (without any extra costs), DENKSTATT Hungary implemented many functions to make the software more user friendly, so it made the usage faster and easier.”
