EQuIS Innovation Continues with Licensees in Over 60 Countries

EarthSoft, Inc., a global leader in environmental and geotechnical data management systems and decision support software, celebrates three decades of continuous operations and innovation with its flagship EQuIS software. EarthSoft is operating in the US, Canada, Australia, Manila, and elsewhere.

EarthSoft has been continuously innovating around its EQuIS software since 1994, spearheading a technical data management revolution with a series of EQuIS software modules integrating environmental project data collection, verification, visualization, analysis, and reporting.  EQuIS today provides much more than environmental database functionality and offers an integrated set of modules implementing seamless automated environmental and geotechnical data management and workflows. 

EarthSoft has innovated on Microsoft and Esri platforms, which have changed significantly through the years, and was recently recognized as an Esri Cornerstone Partner. EQuIS is now used by a large number of government agencies, industrial clients, and consultants. Some consultants list EQuIS as one of the Top 25 technical applications supported across the firm. EarthSoft is listed on a US Federal GSA Contract and a State of California vendor contract. 

EQuIS is not only used by multiple state agencies in the US, additionally the agencies train laboratories and field data collection subcontractors on EQuIS modules. 

EarthSoft remains committed to advancing environmental stewardship through cutting-edge technology, robust data management capabilities, and its Date Governance Initiative. EQuIS is a top-tier industry solution for many of the world’s largest consultants and is continuing to meet clients’ evolving needs and deliver exceptional value.

EarthSoft CEO Mitch Beard commented, “EarthSoft has focused exclusively on environmental data management innovation for 30 years! While this anniversary is a tremendous accomplishment, EarthSoft has broadened the EQuIS product line and continues developing new data management solutions in response to our clients’ growing and evolving data requirements.”
