Artesian which provides a service which automates the process of gathering business intelligence from online resources will deliver news orientated competitive intelligence in real time with the ability to simultaneously monitor thousands of web based resources carefully mining only those business critical stories which will help drive SITA UK’s competitive advantage.

This focussed technology will ensure that in our fast moving sector SITA UK can continue to be at the forefront of knowledge and insight on recycling, energy and resource management.”
Louise Earnshaw, Business Intelligence Manager, SITA UK added:
“Having this tool makes the collection and consolidation of relevant information from the thousands of sources we use, significantly easier and will not only reduce the time taken to gather data but also provide an easy to use platform to share it with those in the business who need to know."
Andrew Yates, CEO at Artesian Solutions, said:
“Our work with SITA UK has highlighted that obtaining the right information from the web can be an integral part of driving business improvements through market and competitor intelligence. SITA UK’s existing knowledge of its sector and innovative thinking on the use and application of data has immeasurably helped us focus our service to their needs.
