Pros: Ease of use for the end users and clients as well as the technical staff to help sort out any issues that may arise-

Overall: We were able to update very old software easily with this software and support staff. We did not loose any productivity and were able to keep the data management staff reporting during the whole process-
Makes it look so easy that the clients sometimes think they can handle the data management themselves :)

We see the potential benefit but are slow to overcome the learning curve.

Pros: The softwares capabilities and flexibility make it exceptional at handling large data management requirements for a wide range of projects. The GIS integration and close customer support as well.

Cons: The software is fairly complex and can be difficult to learn or to get less computer savvy employees trained on its use.

Overall: Time saving, more knowledge of data management and analysis, higher degree of accuracy and quality control, GIS integration. I believe th full benefits have yet to be realized.

We have just started utilizing the program, and it is already saving us time, money, and resources

Pros: I really enjoy that anyone at the company can learn to use it. Users don't have to be computer-pros. It is very effective that I can figure out issues or discrepancies on my own and don't have to call customer service every time theirs a glitch.

Cons: The most difficult part of the process is getting the labs to send the correct data format. We have one lab that was no issues and immediately started sending us data in the correct format. We have another lab that we have continual issues with. I wish there was a better, shorter form to send them to have the format work.

You can use just about any format you wish. We'll work with Jill to come up with a smaller one that's better for her and her lab.

EnviroData is our choice, long-term tool for capturing, storing, and exporting water quality data.

Pros: The flexibility of the software along with its ease of use is its greatest feature (usually two conflicting goals). The database is beautifully designed and technical support is excellent (5 stars). When we bring some complex, outside-the-box requests to the company its developers quickly make the enhancements. The Viewer tool exports our data in Excel crosstabs with analytes down the side, sample dates across the top, and stations in separate tabs if desired, making for easy analyses by us and our clients - all of which is easily configurable. Also appreciate how EnviroData exports the data that can be easily imported into other software for statistical analysis. Ths cost cannot be beat. In short, EnviroData makes storing and exporting the data easy so that we can focus on the analysis.

Cons: Not much to dislike about the software nor its technical support. As enhancements are needed, they get added to the software and shared with the next release.

Overall: Ease of use for storing decades of data and being able to retrieve all or a subset of the data for analysis.

Pros: The software is very adaptable. The product team can support client needs quickly and they are very helpful.

Cons: There are hard-coded limitations due to the age of the underlying code. The software and code are full of weird limitations and require changes to the way data is processed by the laboratory or documented by the field staff.

Overall: Reduced overall cost by reducing labor for some tasks.

Vendor Response

by Geotech Computer Systems on July 26, 2017

It's not clear what these limitations are or why they might be related to the age of the code, which is continuously undergoing modification and improvement, but we would be happy to address them. Some rigidity and enforcement of rules are necessary to build a consistent data set over time, but there is always room for improvement.

Overall I am pleased with software, the user manual is in need of upgrades.

Pros: I like the import data procedures, when the labs get the formatting correct. The available import specifications are helpful when dealing with multiple data providers.

Cons: The export procedures still have some kinks that need to be worked out. I am hoping to see progress on these issues with the new release.

Vendor Response

Sara is right about the documentation and we are re-writing it now. And the new release will have a number of modifications to the output, especially number formatting, which can be a challenge.

Pros: Enviro-Data is a data management tool for environmental data. It's flexible enough to allow easy interfacing with R, python, and excel and does a good job enforcing referential integrity and preserving the quality of the database. Easy enough that new staff can pick up the basics quickly for querying data, but importing has a bit more of a learning curve.

Cons: The graphing capabilities leave a lot to be desired. For internal use, they're fine. For publication quality graphs, or creating charts in bulk, another tool must be used in tandem with ED.

Vendor Response

by Geotech Computer Systems on July 25, 2017

We are working on a new graphing tool for the next major release. It will be similar to our popular Crosstab Wizard, with the user being able to choose options, and then the graphs are made in Excel, which they can then further customize.
