Arkit Announces New Partnership With Ridgeline Canada

Vancouver Software Startup Arkit has Formed a Long-term Partnership With Environmental Services and Waste Management Firm Ridgeline Canada

VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - May 10, 2016) - Ridgeline Canada and Vancouver software startup Arkit have formed a new strategic partnership designed to provide project managers and site workers with a greater degree of control over and better communication during environmental and waste management projects.

This partnership will see Ridgeline Canada implementing Arkit's map-based project collaboration platform across all of its work sites and facilities, enabling Ridgeline Canada to assess samples, plan out projects, view advanced data reports, and communicate with key stakeholders across multiple project sites.

Arkit is a Vancouver-based software company that aims to revolutionize the Canadian environmental engineering sector by leveraging new technologies to allow for strategic growth. Arkit co-founder and CEO Vincent Lam aims to make environmental project management more intuitive and more collaborative, while still providing the powerful data analysis and communication features that environmental consultancies need.

Ridgeline Canada, based in Calgary, Alberta, is using Arkit's web application to streamline processes at its many work sites across the western Prairies. President Tyler Heathcote expects that Arkit's map-based project collaboration software will give Ridgeline Canada an unparalleled degree of control over projects, while adding significant value for Ridgeline's clients.

Past software-based initiatives designed to simplify and streamline project management in the environmental consulting industry have typically proven to be unscalable, and don't offer the rich data analysis capabilities and ease of use required in an enterprise environment. Ridgeline Canada is implementing Arkit's user-friendly project management application in order to overcome that challenge, using a map-based visual approach to make project data from multiple work sites more organized and easier to interpret.

Ridgeline Canada expects to benefit greatly from Arkit's Web 2.0-style features, such as photo and document upload capabilities, a permanent Activity Log, dedicated areas for storing lab sample data and site standards, and geometry tools allow for easy mapping of boundaries and survey areas.
