AMR Research, the leading independent research firm focused on enterprise technologies, has issued a Green Alert on enterprise software platforms for sustainability: "When we surveyed the available landscape of technology options for support of EH&S efforts at the end of 2006, we discovered that despite the presence of a few mature players in the vendor ecosystem, the EH&S compliance market was crying out for a leader. ESS is emerging as a strong candidate for companies seeking to centralize their EH&S processes to a single platform outside of their ERP instance."

Organizations are choosing ESS because it is the only software on the market that reduces the complexities, risks and costs that are associated with multiple EH&S systems and vendors

    AMR Research analysts Simon Jacobson and Colin Masson, authored the August 16 Green Alert -- Laying the Foundations for Sustainability with Environmental Compliance -- which includes a variety of perspectives on ESS, the leading provider of Environmental, Health and Safety (EH&S) and Crisis Management software for Governance, Risk and Compliance.

"AMR Research recently spoke with a series of ESS customers and their consensus is clear," the report continued. "Using ESS as a single environmental instance helps centralize EH&S structures that originally comprised a potpourri of homegrown and manual systems."

AMR Research observed that, "Companies with successful environmental compliance endeavors have embraced the concept of a standardized application or single global instance that can span across multiple regions. These cut across varied local, regional, and international policies, procedures, and distributed assets to ensure endless fluidity in environmental regulations."

"Organizations are choosing ESS because it is the only software on the market that reduces the complexities, risks and costs that are associated with multiple EH&S systems and vendors," said Robert Johnson, ESS President/CEO.

ESS software enables organizations to execute on their corporate initiatives for sustainability, environmental stewardship, health & safety, and greenhouse gas emissions management. These fully integrated solutions also move our clients beyond compliance and reporting, transforming their environmental and crisis data into the information needed to create business-enhancing performance metrics that drive out operational costs and risk.

A wave of corporate boardroom interest in the company's global and local EH&S solutions have led to record ESS software license sales. The company's momentum has been fueled by high-profile, multiple-site deals with global industry leaders Alcoa, Caterpillar and Duke Energy, all closed during the first half of 2007. Such deals indicate that market demand is growing for enterprise-level applications.

ESS' recent success is built on the proven performance of the industry's broadest, most innovative set of enterprise and mid-market software solutions. ESS has also distanced itself from competitors, AMR Research notes, through stronger partnerships with other global technology providers such as Microsoft, IBM and OSIsoft and is already on a fast-track plan to obtain SAP Netweaver certification.
