Delivering Exponential Value

We call this our eROISM outcome: the exponential value of improved performance, operational efficiency and sustainable impact.

Measurement is a critical component of our process to deliver exponential outcomes. Using our proprietary eROISM value approach, we measure our impact and quantify customers' return on investment.

We start with what matters most to our customers - performance - and link performance outcomes to environmental and social metrics and cost savings to demonstrate the triple-bottom-line benefits of sustainability.

How we use eROI to quantify and communicate Exponential Value

Our eROISM value approach measures what matters most to our customers:

  • Improved Performance: We help customers achieve system assurance and ensure clean, safe and healthy environments. We make sure these outcomes increase over time.
  • Operational Efficiency: We identify ways to improve efficiency and outcomes to ultimately reduce total cost of operations.
  • Sustainable Impact: We helps customers minimize impact on the environment to reach their sustainability goals. We measure the sustainable impact of our solutions against a set of sustainability indicators that align with customer key business drivers across a diverse set of industries.
