12 January 2006 - EarthSoft announced today that Louisiana DEQ has accepted a donation of over $450,000 of EQuIS 5 and EQuIS for ArcGIS systems.

EarthSoft donated a 4-Processor license of the web enabled EQuIS 5 (Oracle) Enterprise and an unlimited site license of EQuIS 5 Professional, as well as the award-winning EQuIS for ArcGIS licenses interfacing to ESRI GIS software. Louisiana DEQ purchased a Maintenance Contract from EarthSoft for Help Desk support and product upgrades.

In a letter from Louisiana DEQ Secretary Mike McDaniel, Dr. McDaniel said, 'This software will provide DEQ the tools needed to manage environmental data.'

Mike Stewart, Principal of eDATApro in Baton Rouge, said, 'We are pleased to begin work implementing EQuIS for DEQ and will provide training and consulting to most effectively integrate EQuIS into DEQ processes and workflow.'

EarthSoft President Mitch Beard added, 'We encourage all our business partners to help Louisiana DEQ get this massive assessment and characterization most quickly completed so these families can safely get their lives and businesses back to normal. EarthSoft is pleased to provide this small contribution to help Louisiana recover from this catastrophe.'

EQuIS 5, the environmental industry's first application built from the ground up using Microsoft's .NET Framework, offers workflow automation for Electronic Data Deliverable (EDD) management with the scalability of SQL Server or Oracle. EQuIS 5 Enterprise is a web application designed for casual users - including data submitters and project managers - who need quick and easy access for submitting data and obtaining reports. EQuIS 5 Enterprise offers incoming and outgoing email processing in addition to a web portal that provides a closed-loop data submission and receipt subsystem which can automatically check, qualify, and load millions of data submissions into the EQuIS database.
