How can ERS have the best quality and most complete data (OVER 2,000 DATABASES!) in the Environmental Due Diligence industry, yet have one of the most affordable prices for its reports?

  1. ERS continually invests in computer software, hardware, and programing to increase the processing speeds and accuracy of the GeoCoding, compiling and processing of the reports. This not only saves you time but also saves ERS’s time.
  2. ERS does not have Salespeople. Every time a competitor’s salesperson steps into your office it costs you money! They have to pay that salesperson, plus costs, plus commission. The costs are passed onto you through increased pricing not increased quality of data! ERS has no salespeople, outside or otherwise!   Instead, ERS makes certain to have the best customer service people available and provide the best customer service in the industry. ERS will fix, remap, change an order, move a site/listing location, anything you need, 24 hours a day, within minutes. Our products always sell themselves.

How does the RecCheck report (Radius Search Report) save you time, therefore saving you money?

  1. ERS provides upfront and within the initial Executive Summary table such key facts as the following:
  2. Listings or Map ID locations are color coded for ease of reference at a glance.
    • Red = Have not received a “case closed”, “no further action” status, or ongoing investigation and/or remediation.
    • Yellow = should be further reviewed to determine site status.
    • Green = site has received a “case closed” or “no further action” status or does not likely present an environmental condition.  This allows you to go directly to the ¼ mile map and quickly assess the condition of your site and surrounding listings.
  3. Upon ordering your report, within the shopping cart, you can select to have all listed sites delivered in an Excel spreadsheet table. This allows you to import this table directly into your report and/or run statistics on the data. Did we mention this is a FREE service?

  6. Excessive DETAILS (that may or may not be important to you) have been placed in a cloud. At the end of the most important shown details for each listing is a HYPERLINK, linking you instantly to the extra details.
  7. All listings have HYPERLINKS that quickly direct you to the maps and details for that particular listing.

ERS-Environmental Records Search carries TRUE ENVIRONMENTAL errors and omissions/professional liability insurance and our insurance certificates state “Environmental Coverage”.   Our competitors ONLY carry general liability insurance which does NOT cover environmental. Therefore, you have NO COVERAGE when you use our competitors since this is environmental related work! ASTM & EPA AAI require you to carry $1 million of ENVIRONMENTAL errors and omissions/professional liability insurance. If your vendors are NOT covered than any problems go directly to YOUR insurance. We will be glad to provide you with our insurance certificate.
