This week (15th August 2013) saw Landmark Information Group sign a new five year deal with the Environment Agency to continue to use the government agency's data for its suite of environmental risk reports. Covering flooding and land contamination, Landmark's suite of products alert homeowners, legal and financial professionals, developers and environmental consultants to potential land and property risks.
Working with the Environment Agency since 1996, Landmark's partnership has resulted in the introduction of new data product categories which enable greater access to information and flexibility for Landmark to develop services. The new deal includes provision of live data terms to allow smart mobile app-based products and provides more flexibility for Landmark's clients to interactively review the data purchased in the reports.
Lucy Oxer, Head of Data Licensing, Landmark Information Group said: "We are very pleased to have extended our agreement with the Environment Agency for another five years. Landmark was the Environment Agency's first value-added reseller 17 years ago and we work very closely with their proactive commercial team to ensure that we are making relevant, high quality data available to our clients at an affordable price. These additional benefits and simplification in terms means we can focus on delivering what the client needs, and deliver it quickly."
Mike Rose, Head of Data Licensing Development for the Environment Agency, said: "We are delighted that Landmark has taken advantage of our new product framework and moved onto a new licence. This continues the strong working relationship we have with Landmark, delivering our data and information to millions of users."
Landmark is the UK's leading provider of land and property search information, including digital mapping, environmental risk reports for property professionals and sophisticated property management tools to surveyors, risk and fraud managers and the broader financial markets.
