This environmental services company has eliminated days of data entry delays by developing custom mobile apps for its clients’ projects.

Hemmera is an environmental consultancy with offices in Vancouver, Victoria, Whitehorse, Calgary, and Toronto. The company provides site assessment and remediation, planning and management, community engagement and social science, and geomatics services, which help government agencies and businesses ensure compliance with Canada’s environmental regulations.
