Reporting and Information System

More data, less effort. e.RIS concentrates data into a single dashboard from multiple data sources that include web feeds, historians and relational databases, as well as allowing for the annotation of the data and records. e.RIS does not replicate all of the data, only the queries and annotations. It provides dashboard reporting, validation, annotation and allows for very sophisticated calculations for statistical analysis, roll-up reports, etc. Due to the e.RIS function of always querying and not replicating all data we truly adhere to the axiom “information should exist in only one place”. This fundamental principle is strictly adhered to by e.ris eliminating the extra hard drive space required for storing duplicate or even triplicate data, thus providing a much lower lifecycle and faster solution.  


e.RIS helps our clients retrieve and utilize information that is concealed within the forest of data that is produced daily. By centralizing the access point, instead of the data, everyone in your organization can easily use the system. With information access and report creation at your fingertips, your teams can make informed decisions to optimize processes while permitting operations to meet regulatory compliance requirements.  


e.RIS enterprise edition is an advanced reporting tool that enables organizations to manage, analyze, and report on information within their enterprise systems in a comprehensive way.


e.RIS enterprise edition is our next generation data management solution which allows you to view and administer data from all your enterprise systems including Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS), asset management systems, customer billing, and many others. All this data can be enhanced by supplementing it with manually entered and calculated data to produce detailed reports.


e.RIS enterprise edition provides a solid platform for enterprise reporting and analysis by delivering the tools our customers need. Meeting regulatory compliance, understanding operational situations before key decision making, and saving time by providing your staff access to enterprise data when they need it are just some of the benefits of this system.


Data from an enterprise system is read directly, enabling real-time access to data as it is captured. This approach provides access to all your data as opposed to data warehouse solutions where only a limited subset of summary daily values is available. Data from different areas of your facility and systems can be easily combined into a single report, table, or chart. Our user-friendly report builder lets even novice operators design custom reports to present your data the way you want it. e.RIS enterprise edition is also web based. This removes the need to install software on all your organization’s computers while allowing remote users to connect to critical information via their favourite mobile devices.


Our most popular e.RIS enterprise edition features are:

  • Full access to multiple SCADA historian data sources, Laboratory Information Management Systems (LIMS), and Computerized Maintenance Management Systems (CMMS).

  • Easily configured and shared reports. No advanced programming skills are required. As well, our clients pass on their knowledge to become their own internal trainers.
