Leading Analyst Firm Says ESS Has Distanced Itself from Competitors

    AMR Research Says "ESS is Emerging as a Strong Candidate for Companies
Seeking to Centralize Their EH&S Processes to a Single Platform..."

    TEMPE, ARIZ., August 23 /CNW/ - 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

    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

    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.
