Exchange Network Capability e-Node

enfoTech has been an active participant in the national Environmental Exchange Network initiative since the inception of the program around 2000. The Exchange Network is a secure, Internet-based approach to exchanging environmental and health data among partners (e.g. states, EPA, etc). We provide a variety of Exchange Network software solutions and consulting services to federal, state, tribal and industry partners.

Exchange Network Software Solutions

Exchange Network Node
enfoTech is an industry leader in providing Exchange Network Node and Node dataflow solutions. In 2001 enfoTech, as part of a joint cooperation with a State/EPA workgroup, pioneered the development of one of the nation’s first Exchange Network Nodes. Since that time, our Node software has evolved extensively and is now an industry standard, widely used by State, Tribal, and industry partners and has been adopted nationally as an Open Source Solution, available in both .NET and Java formats.

Facility Profiler
Our Facility Profiler software provides centralized facility management and facility reconciliation. It is an essential tool for agencies that oversee the management of many diverse environmental programs, each of which permit, oversee, inspection, and/or regulate facilities. The Facility Profiler provides the following features:

  • Facility Reconciliation
    Facility reconciliation is important in order to establish and maintain a master set of facility information within an agency. The system supports both automated and manual reconciliation of facilities from multiple subsystems. Detailed reconciliation logic is provided for facility inserts, updates, and deletes, which can be easily customized to suit the specific needs.
  • Facility Data Management
    The Facility Profiler is a secured web-based data management application allowing staff to search facility records, view master records that have been auto-reconciled, perform manual reconciliation, and perform updates/corrections to the master facility records.
  • Enterprise Metadata
    The Facility Profiler is a secured web-based data management application allowing staff to search facility records, view master records that have been auto-reconciled, perform manual reconciliation, and perform updates/corrections to the master facility records.
  • Complete Exchange Network Integration
    The Facility Profiler is fully integrated with the Exchange Network, storing data natively in FRS XML format and utilizing Exchange Network web services for data synchronization.

Tribal Exchange Network Portal
enfoTech has worked with several tribes to develop a streamlined, easy-to-use Exchange Network portal that focuses solely on Tribal Exchange Network needs. This solution allows tribes to satisfy their national ambient water quality (WQX) and air quality (AQS) reporting needs. In addition, any data that is managed by the tribe can be shared with the public in an integrated map-based website. This website allows the public to query the agency’s environmental data geospatially and perform data analysis via built-in graphing capabilities.

Return on Investment (ROI) Analysis

We can support your agency by conducting similar ROI analyses prior to project implementation to ensure that your agency will invest resources properly and avoid projects that will demonstrate a negative return.
