Pacific Environment Limited (ASX: PEH) is pleased to announce its first international sale for its technology product, EnviroSuite. The client is Canterbury Regional Council, based in Christchurch, which is responsible for servicing New Zealand’s largest Region.
Pacific Environment’s CEO Peter White said:
“This is an exciting milestone for our technology and validates our current commercialisation project that will see a quantum leap in the performance, functionality, user experience and overall commercial appeal of the new cloud-based Software as a Service platform, EnviroSuite 2.0.”
“In recent months we have seen a significant increase in the sales pipeline for EnviroSuite including additional potential overseas clients. Discussions have been held with potential channel partners in the USA, Asia and South American markets.

Canterbury Regional Council has experienced ongoing complaints from the local community about odour and dust pollution that cause amenity issues. Conventional methods and investigations have been used in an attempt to identify the sources of these emissions and to determine if they could be considered offensive and objectionable. Whilst these methods can assess whether there is dust or odour they haven’t been able to track the sources of the emissions.
The EnviroSuite system has been designed for the type of issues experienced in the Canterbury region. By modelling weather at the local scale in real-time it can locate the sources of reported offensive emissions. When a complaint is received EnviroSuite runs a reverse trajectory model using complaint information. The system produces a pathway of odour and dust on a map, including time stamps to identify when it would have travelled past a specific location. The ‘backtrack’ function can be run for multiple complaints and locations. Over time this system provides strong evidence of the sources of offensive emissions. This will benefit Canterbury Regional Council through reducing labour costs and potentially support prosecutions in a court of law.
In July 2014 a comprehensive commercialisation project of EnviroSuite was commenced to produce a suite of world-class Software as a Service platform known as EnviroSuite 2.0. The initial modules will be ready for commercial sale in the first half of 2015. Existing EnviroSuite clients will be immediately migrated to the new cloud platform.
EnviroSuite is currently installed at 16 sites around Australia. EnviroSuite 2.0 will be fully scalable and will operate from the Amazon Web Services cloud environment. This will enable much faster implementation and dramatically increases the ability to scale.
