SustaiNet Software Solutions Inc. was formed in early 2004 as the exclusive Canadian distributor of a variety of environmental and community engagement software solutions from various global suppliers. Our primary focus was to provide a software solution that efficiently managed the large amounts of environmental and community engagement data that needed reporting. We were dealing with companies that had years of data spread out in binders and spreadsheets across different offices and regions. Pulling things together for final reports was an expensive, time consuming task. The old model of using spreadsheets or adapted management systems didnt adequately manage the data, particularly when challenged by regulators or the courts.
