3E Company (Carlsbad, CA) is a provider of information technology (IT) products and services to help clients manage their environmental, health, and safety (EHS) compliance issues, their chemical data reporting requirements, and the environmental impacts of their supply chains and product life cycles on a global basis. The firm has continued to introduce new product and service lines—most recently adding a new suite of Chemical Data Reporting (CDR) services—and to upgrade existing products and services. In December 2010, 3E was acquired by Verisk Analytics, Inc. (Jersey City, NJ), a provider of information about risk to professionals in insurance, healthcare, mortgage, government, and the risk management field. Robert Christie is 3E’s president and CEO.

EBJ: What specific drivers, requirements and success factors do you see in the chemical and regulatory data and services market in 2012?

Robert Christie: As the business and regulatory environment becomes progressively more complex, the associated data and processes become more difficult to manage in house and demand increasingly specialized domain expertise. In this environment, the successful service providers are those who are uniquely able to aggregate vast amounts of regulatory and product data from disparate sources and then deliver solutions that help companies manage both business and compliance processes. In addition, successful service providers need to show deep domain expertise that reflects true thought leadership in addressing these complex problems. The successful providers must bring scalability, breadth, and accurate data within comprehensive and timely solutions, all in the framework of a truly global platform.

Given the rapidly growing importance of accurate information, the most successful service providers will be those that provide the most robust data available, in the sense that it is broad, updated, high quality, and accurate. This information must be developed, managed, and maintained by highly qualified regulatory and geographic specific experts. The solutions brought by the most successful service providers will support comprehensive and mission critical applications across the full supply chain and product lifecycle.

Finally, companies are looking for service from providers that have at their core highly specialized data and experts in fields such as regulatory and product information and risk management.
