ESP CSR has a growing list of tools to help you collect your data.
These tools include:
Smart Excel Templates
Smart Excel Templates help you manage data by generating structured templates for bulk uploads using existing information within the CSR system. These templates are useful when you are needing to upload data quickly or have no other format to use when uploading data into the system.

File uploads are used to get data into ESP CSR. This functionality allows you to view your data as it will appear in the system and ensure that the file contains no errors. Examples of what you can upload include utility invoices, air travel reports, fuel card reports or general ledger extracts etc.

Online Forms (Smart Forms)
Smart forms allow you to send private links to suppliers containing an online form they can fill out and submit data against to than go into quarantine. Suppliers are also able to write comments and attach files to these forms. The benefits of these forms are that suppliers no longer need to login to ESP CSR to submit data.

Enter and update data directly in ESP CSR against individual inventory items. You can either enter data manually line by line or per month or use the data spreader to spread data over a number of months (based on the number of days in the month).
See the Knowledge base article linked here for more information: Manual Entry
Use our automation tools to enter data automatically based on events happening. For example, enter activity data against your electricity inventory in scope 2 and have ESP CSR enter that same value for your electricity transmission and distribution losses inventory in scope 3.

ESP CSR offers a Virtual Assistance service to clients where you can send your data files to our support team for them to upload into the system for you.
