Air Compliance Services, Inc, home of EMTRACK, was established in 1995 by an Environmental Engineer and an IT specialist. EMTRACK air emission tracking software was developed as an alternative to large spreadsheets or "shoe box record keeping". The environmental engineer had a need for a less cumbersome method to track emissions from coating operations. Fortunately he had a friend that had programming experience. EMTRACK was developed as an easy and expandable way to track and report emissions. Area environmental services companies (consultants) had the opportunity to work with EMTRACK and asked if it would be commercially available. Air Compliance Services Inc. and EMTRACK were born. Over the years we welcomed input from customers and regulatory agencies as EMTRACK was upgraded, improved, and modified to meet the needs of our customers. This has resulted in our latest version, EMTRACK 4.5. EMTRACK was developed and marketed to small to medium companies that couldn't afford a full time environmental staff. We feel that most small to medium companies should not spend $40,000 on emission tracking software, but the lack of accurate and timely record keeping could cause violations of environmental regulations that usually include large fines and legal fees. EMTRACK was priced accordingly. Complying and monitoring compliance to environmental regulations should not be a major cost to a company. Compliance should be as easy and cost efficient as possible. Manufacturing and environmental compliance must be affordable if it is to remain viable in the United States.
