"The company's strong 2007 performance validates ESS' industry-leading solution as the platform of choice for sustainability," said Robert Johnson, ESS President and CEO. "It also indicates that ESS continues its reputation for delivering on its product roadmap with solutions that ensure companies can execute on corporate governance initiatives and simultaneously maintain growth and consistent performance."
ESS is meeting global market demand with products that address hot-button EH&S concerns such as compliance reporting, greenhouse gas management, stakeholder reporting, worker health and safety and emergency response.
As the leading independent provider of EH&S software, ESS makes significant investments in research and development to ensure that its solutions and services meet customers' current and future technology needs. ESS has consistently focused on delivering software, built by a team that brings more than 800 combined years of experience, that help clients address their urgent business challenges. In addition, ESS' ecosystem of global technology partners offers clients the widest range of software implementation and support services.
"ESS provides its solutions in an integrated technology platform that enables centralized monitoring and management of EH&S and Crisis issues, while some of our competitors offer systems that operate on different platforms. It is well known that moving data between disparate systems is difficult, and achieving interoperability between different platforms can be costly," Johnson said.
ESS' growth has extended its client base across all industries, including oil and gas, chemicals, financial, metals and mining, pharmaceutical, manufacturing, retail, utilities, and government agencies. Representative companies include Alcoa, Allied Energy Corp., Allied Waste, AMPAC Fine Chemicals, Boart Longyear, Caterpillar, Duke Energy, Hawaiian Electric Company, HD Supply, Invensys, Iron Mountain, Kuwaiti Oil Company, Mark-West Hydrocarbon, Major Drilling, New Brunswick Emergency Measures Organization, Oiltanking Houston, PPG, Syncrude Canada, Total Petrochemicals, USDA Forest Service and W. L. Gore. ESS' momentum has continued into 2008, as its software platform has been chosen by organizations such as China National Petroleum Company, Hunt Refining Company, Midwest Airlines and Win-River Casino.
"ESS' scalable software platform enables organizations to align their people with key corporate goals while improving management decision making," Johnson said. "Its integrated design reduces complexity, risks and costs by leveraging critical data, information and best practices from a common database for a facility, business unit or across the enterprise."
