Data Services

 

TES offers a range of data services to meet most requirements. Our data services aim to optimise the quantity and quality of data available to you, and to provide data ready for interpretation and decision making.

Data quantity

TES can download (poll) data from monitoring stations remotely on a regular basis to check that the equipment is operating and performing to specification, and to ensure data are stored securely off site.

A typical service level would be checking the site twice per week on Tuesday and Thursday, but daily checks can be provided if you require a higher level of service.

This enables quick response to any issues such as power outages or unacceptable drift (in case of gas analysers) to prevent further data loss.

It also helps to identify recurring operational issues that need to be addressed.

This is essential to maximise data capture percentage.

Please note: Our data services do not replace the services of a qualified environmental consultant, who has the expertise to provide analysis and advice on your monitoring requirements.

Data quality review

TES reviews the data on an ongoing basis to identify any issues that could impact data quality, e.g. instruments outside performance specifications, or unacceptable zero and span drift for gas analysers. This enables quick preventative response to any issues to minimise the need to invalidate data.

TES typically review and validate the data on a monthly basis to remove any spurious data, to remove maintenance-related data in accordance with site maintenance records, to adjust gas analyser data for baseline/span drift and to apply K-factors to dust data as might be required. This is essential to maximise the validated data capture percentage.

Data reporting

TES can provide raw and validated data in formats you specify. Typically, this would be in .csv or .xls format.

Data reports summarising the monitoring project (scope, sites, equipment used, monitoring outcomes, summary data and graphs, and comparison to guidelines) can also be provided.

If you want to receive data in real-time, data can be pushed from the site to your FTP server e.g. for use in real-time web displays.

Data reporting solutions enable real time site operations decision making, and reports for regulatory compliance.TES offers a range of data services to meet most requirements. Our data services aim to optimise the quantity and quality of data available to you, and to provide data ready for interpretation and decision making.

We are certified in Safety, Quality and Environmental to ISO 9001, AS/NZS 4801 and ISO 14001.

Environmental Data Services

Are you in an industry which requires real-time monitoring of environmental pollution to ensure the safety of staff and the environment, allow for proper response planning, and report to authorities? Then you may very well be in need of environmental data services. With reliable environmental data services, you can have key information ready for interpretation and referencing at all times, resulting in critical decision-making becoming more efficient and effective.

Of course, the option of assigning an in-house team to be responsible for regular data monitoring exists, but is typically quite time-consuming and not very cost-effective.

What Are Environmental Data Services?

Environmental data services include a wide range of practices that help to optimise the quantity and quality of environmental data, as well as assisting with ongoing tasks around data acquisition, validation, and reporting.

Optimising data quality and quantity comes down to making sure your equipment is operating correctly while maximizing up-time. In cases of anomalies that prevent a piece of equipment from performing to specification, real-time environmental data monitoring can help to identify the issues before they snowball into incidents.

For instance, if an instrument’s pump demand is spiking unexpectedly, and you’re flagged as soon as the issue arises, it will allow for quick response, minimising any damage.

What’s more, you can prevent data loss since the information is housed securely, in an off-site location. A data service provider would generally store this data on a remote server, helping you maximise the percentage of data captured in the occurrence of major incidents.

Ongoing tasks such as data acquisition, validation and reporting can take up a lot of internal time and resources. Having an environmental data service partner can free up that time and resource for more important tasks.

Our Environmental Data Services

At Thomson Environmental Systems, we offer state-of-the-art environmental data services aimed at better decision-making and assisting with the meeting of regulatory compliance.

We can offer weekly health checks of data from your environmental monitoring stations to make sure your equipment is running exactly as it should be, with any potential issues reported to you immediately. This will optimize data quality and quantity, and give peace of mind that your network is being looked after.

We also provide data reporting services for our clients – all you need to do is choose what level of service and options you would like, and we’ll take care of the rest. This includes sending you whatever data and reporting is required. Our team also has the capacity to send real-time data to your FTP server if you don’t want to wait for summarised reports.

Finally, we can provide environmental data software solutions to give you all this power at your fingertips. This includes both server-based and cloud based software suite options, as well as a web-based platform on which to access and data and reports.

How Can Environmental Data Management Software Help?

We recommend environmental data management software to all clients because of how effective its proven to be when it comes to streamlining the data monitoring and reporting process.

Various data loggers and software can assist with planning, scheduling, monitoring, reporting, and responding. With environmental data management software, you can organise all your data in a single, centralised location and can access it at any time, find data through simplistic database searches and generate real-time reports.

You can also perform a variety of calculations without relying on spreadsheets. That’s a huge time-saver which also eliminates the added risk of human error!

What Should I Consider When Looking at Environmental Data Services?

During your research, you should make sure to look for both a reputable provider and reliable data management system. It’s not always easy to find the right combination, which is why you need to ask the right questions before making a decision.

Also try to have a clear idea of the kind of data services you need precisely – there are a few questions you should be asking:

Do you need to perform simple calculations and generate data reports? Do you need a fully-fledged system for data monitoring and reporting, together with features for meeting regulatory compliance? Do you deal with hazardous chemicals? Do you run a power plant that emits one or multiple air pollutants? Are you looking for dust and particulate monitoring? Do you need to monitor waste-to-energy air pollution?

Determine your needs before setting off on your search for the right provider and/or software.

Once you start scoping out various providers, ask about their technical support and the security of their servers. Find out more about their development team, possible software adjustments, scalability options and customisation features.

Most importantly, ask for a product demo if there’s no free trial. You should be able to explore all software features before making a commitment  – that way, you can see if it’s the right fit for your business and environment.
