We have recently launched a BETA version of our financial tracking feature and it is now available to all Tracker plan administrators.
With financial tracking, you can configure up to 6 financial fields and categorize them as either expense or revenue. This will allow you and your reporting entities to track costs and revenues associated with your diversion activities.
Saving data in Re-TRAC Connect surveys is now more intuitive and just in time for the upcoming reporting season. Reporters no longer have to decide whether to click Save Draft or Mark Complete. Now reporters can click the Save button to be automatically presented with relevant options for what to do next.
Over the past few months, we have invested our time & resources into improving many of our Re-TRAC Connect solutions to ensure that your user experience, management tools, and analytical reports are optimized.
It is common with most improvement projects that before we make changes, we need to review the current usage patterns. This meant taking a good, hard, and honest look at each of our solutions, including our free tool Tracker Light.
Emerge Knowledge Design was recently selected as a finalist in the Environment category of the Spirit of Winnipeg Awards. It’s a huge honour to be one of the 24 finalists recognized for their innovative ideas and contributions to the community.

Check out the slideshow for highlights from this year’s conference.

My fascination with organics management really took off after I had the opportunity to hear Jen Rustemeyer & Grant Baldwin present at the Washington State Recycling Conference in 2014. They produced and directed “Just Eat It” a documentary that asks the questions:
“Why are we throwing over 40% of our food in the garbage?” “How much of it is edible?”
These aren’t easy questions to answer but I was sure that I wanted to be a part of the solution so this week I attended the City of Winnipeg’s Organics Diversion Strategy Symposium. Here’s the symposium synopsis:
