3E Company Announces Chemical Property and Hazard Data for Integration Into SAP EH&S

Company Introduces Add-on Module to Ariel Data Manager/Staging Area for SAP

ANAHEIM and CARLSBAD, CA -- (MARKET WIRE) -- May 2, 2005 -- 3E Company®, the leading provider of Environmental Health and Safety (EH&S) compliance and information management services, announced today at the America's SAP Users Group (ASUG) Annual Conference and Vendor Fair, Ariel™ PCTEC (Physical, Chemical, Toxicological and Eco-toxicological Content) is available as an add-on module to current Ariel Data Manager™ (ADM)/Staging Area for SAP (formerly Staging Area) customers for integration into SAP EH&S.

Chemical manufacturers need access to global information to make critical business decisions such as managing the impact of chemicals on workers, the workplace and the environment. They also need to understand chemical formulations and evaluate the validity and accuracy of chemical information of the components used in their products. To address these issues, 3E has developed a comprehensive set of easy-to-integrate chemical property and hazard data for nearly 8,000 of the most common substances. This data is fed directly into SAP EH&S, providing EH&S data for various endpoints that are used in the rule-based creation of compliance-related documents such as Material Safety Data Sheets (MSDSs), as well as in rules that calculate product values. Ariel PCTEC helps MSDS authors, toxicologists, environmental scientists and engineers, product stewards, physicians and others make informed decisions.

"PCTEC is definitely a competitive differentiator for us," said Robert S. Christie, president and CEO of 3E Company. "The value our data already brings to companies that rely on it increases exponentially with the addition of PCTEC."

Ariel PCTEC is available to all current ADM/Staging Area for SAP customers. To find out about implementation and pricing, contact a 3E sales representative by calling 800-360-3660 or send an email to
