London—Feb, 14, 2013—AMEE UK Ltd., an open source directory of environmental and business data in the United Kingdom, signed a partnership agreement with PI Benchmark, an enterprise decision support service provider, to enable the analysis of supply chain related data from an environmental impact perspective.
“Amee is delighted to be working with PI Benchmark to help them expand their environmental offering,” said Tim Murphy, Chief Executive Officer, Amee. “Amee passionately believes that greener business is better business and this opportunity to work with PI—who are highly regarded within the support solutions sector—enables amee to increase the profile of its environmental data community, in turn enriching the quality of our data.”
Under the terms of the agreement, PI Benchmark will use Amee’s data to launch a new environment insight module for ProcureTrak, its procurement decision support service.
Amee’s open and transparent environmental data directory will provide a reliable source for PI’s analytical platform, enabling the company to include environmental data for the first time. ProcureTrak gives users the ability to interrogate their data in real time, i.e., being able to easily drill into and manipulate data; and change the perspective of the analysis—even when already working deep within the data. All questions are answered instantly.
As the business benefits of sustainability become more tangible, governments and corporates are seeking sustainable processes and procedures across their supply chains. Amee created a single free source for UK businesses to share data and ideas; to compare and learn from others; help reduce emissions; and enhance business benefits. As business processes are placing increasing emphasis on sustainability, ProcureTrak's new environmental module provides an excellent resource to assess supply chain sustainability; and increase awareness of Amee’s environmental data community.
“We are pleased to announce this partnership with Amee,” said Keesup Choe, Chief Executive Officer, PI Benchmark. “Open, transparent and comparable data is hugely important when providing support solutions for clients. And this new venture enabled us to expand our offering to provide environmental data for the first time, bringing increased benefits to our users.”
