Leading Market Research and Analysis Firm Highlights 3E Company’s Global Capabilities in New Report

Vendor Profile Also Explores Critical Importance of Data-Driven Solutions in Successful EH&S Initiatives

Carlsbad, Calif., March 4, 2013 — 3E Company, a leading provider of environmental, health, and safety (EH&S) compliance and information management services, today announced that its industry leadership has been recognized by IDC Manufacturing Insights in a Perspective report entitled “Spotlight on 3E Company, from Environmental Compliance to Sustainability” (document #MI236531).

The report is the first in a series on environmental compliance and sustainability technology vendors, in which 3E is the first company profiled. The report features commentary on 3E’s capabilities and the critical importance of data-driven solutions in successful EH&S initiatives.

Observations from the report cover a range of topics, including 3E’s strong expertise in serving the chemical industry and manufacturing in general as well as the company’s global capabilities, as reflected in its extensive multilingual support. Regarding customer satisfaction, IDC Manufacturing Insights spoke with 3E customers prior to developing the profile, all of whom communicated a high rate of satisfaction with 3E’s commitment to making content and analysis available easily and quickly across multiple platforms, resulting in increased efficiency of compliance processes.

“We identify 3E’s focus on content and services as the primary difference between 3E and other vendors in the combined compliance and sustainability market,” said Kimberly Knickle, practice director, IDC Manufacturing Insights. “3E’s offerings certainly make good use of that content. The combination of products, content, and services means that 3E can offer customers a fairly wide range of support, from providing regulatory content to acting as a full-service provider with content. Many of 3E’s customers are using 3E globally to complement internal compliance resources, provide substantial efficiencies and cost savings, and lower the risk of compliance.”

“3E is proud to be the first vendor profiled in the IDC Manufacturing Insights series,” said Jeffrey Starr, vice president of marketing, 3E Company. “We especially appreciate the section in which IDC calls out our key differentiators, such as our regulatory expertise related to chemical life-cycle management, workplace safety, and transportation; our expertise in providing content and data management for GHS, REACH, product safety, and regulatory compliance of product- and substance-related data; and our extensive supporting services, including authoring and managing compliance-related or required documents, waste management, training, and emergency response.”

IDC Manufacturing Insights recently launched a special series of Perspective reviews to analyze vendors and their ability to address manufacturers’ requirements in EH&S and environmental sustainability. This IDC Manufacturing Insights research is in response to the strong demand for guidance from manufacturers in the process of reevaluating how they can use IT to support their EH&S processes and sustainability goals. This guidance is designed to ensure manufacturers are complying with regulations and enabling compliance and sustainability initiatives to create opportunities.
