Our service provides granularity, accuracy and transparency for every SKU at the SKU level, throughout the year. Gone are the days of employing expensive life cycle analysts to calculate your carbon footprint at a given moment.
The Benchmark team’s extensive knowledge of the entire packaging production process means that we know the right questions to ask to gather the data, and then our software does the complex and time-consuming calculations. As a result, a life cycle analyst need only audit the data and process on an annual basis to certify compliance, saving large amounts of precious time and money.
Our knowledge and experience are complemented by our partners and globally recognised sources of data.

Product life cycle management involves making design decisions based on multiple criteria including cost, compliance, sustainability, and risk. Unfortunately, the data and expertise required to make these decisions are siloed. This protracts the process of innovation and increases its complexity.
Today, the market solves this problem with vertical applications like PDM, ERP, CAD, EHS, SCM, etc. These mostly remain siloed due to the enormous costs of integration and keeping data synchronized. Therefore, analyses typically require exporting data to aggregation tools e.g. BI or excel before being used for analyses in specialist decision support applications. Results are typically delayed, some taking as much as 9 months, and therefore provide little support during the design process. Makersite provides results instantly and simultaneously across key product criteria.
Makersite combines external and internal data sources to create a digital twin of a product in design. Artificial intelligence and our graph-based data model allow for ingesting, representing, and connecting heterogeneous data easily. Its native applications use ground-breaking algorithms to support analysis and decision making based on multiple criteria simultaneously including should-costs, regulatory compliance, life cycle impacts (LCA), supply chain risk, etc. Our API-first architecture allows for easy integrations into existing IT infrastructures thereby supporting systems and processes with richer, fresher, and more timely product data.
This allows engineers to understand and improve their designs from the perspective of their regulatory compliance, environmental impact, supply risk, and cost of production, simultaneously. Companies can get results up to 40x faster than traditional methods while making their products better.
