ERM Implements GIS Worldwide with Esri ELA

September 26, 2011

Redlands, California—To achieve a robust GIS practice while reducing overhead costs in multiple offices, Environmental Resources Management (ERM), a leading global provider of environmental, health and safety, risk, and social consulting services, has signed an enterprise license agreement (ELA) with Esri. The ELA provides unlimited access to Esri desktop and server software products and extensions throughout ERM's 130 offices in 40 countries.

"The use of GIS is fundamental to many ERM consulting services, such as site investigation, impact assessment, planning, and risk management, where understanding the spatial location or distribution of potential impacts or sensitivities is critical to a successful assessment," said Simon Ross, ERM's lead GIS expert. "By signing this ELA, ERM will be able to significantly expand access to GIS software within the company and extend new services to our clients."

Esri ELAs provide many benefits to users including

"This ELA will ensure that ERM has the tools that are necessary to help the company realize its vision—growing its practice," said Kyle Leone, Esri account executive. "We are pleased to offer a solution that takes the worry out of continually looking for funding mechanisms to manage a myriad of software licenses or settling for smaller deployments."
