The SimaPro Online Platform consists of four tools (Flow, Collect, Share and Explore) to help you manage, collaborate and expand the reach of your LCA and sustainability endeavors. Read more about each online module below:
Access to the platform is currently only available as an asset of the annual service contract on SimaPro Desktop versions’ Power, Expert and the Educational PhD. It is not available for stand-alone purchase at this time.
SimaPro Flow (beta) is the core of the SimaPro online platform, as the module where the LCA modeling happens. SimaPro Flow makes it easy to get started with LCA, but it is also suitable for seasoned LCA experts who seek the extra flexibility of a web-based module. You can choose between visual modeling using the Canvas or complex modeling through the process form. Flow integrates seamlessly with the other modules on the SimaPro platform; Collect, Share and Explore.
SimaPro Collect makes data collection from suppliers and other stakeholders easier than ever, through a user-friendly dashboard and standard, customizable survey templates. SimaPro Collect optimizes data collection, improves collaboration and increases efficiency.
SimaPro Explore facilitates collaboration between LCA experts and business users and encourages brainstorming about improvements to your products’ life cycle. With SimaPro Explore, product designers and production managers have the ability to investigate alternative product configurations and identify the most sustainable design choices, backed by the expertise of an LCA practitioner.
SimaPro Share supports fact-based decision-making and sustainable product development by easily allowing LCA results to be shared. This tool allows life cycle assessment experts to create product scenarios and share them with business stakeholders. Non-LCA experts can then view and compare these ‘what if’ scenarios, and experience the impact of their decisions first-hand with accessible, tangible results.
