The Greek philosopher Heraclitus reportedly said that the only thing that is constant is change. He probably wasn’t talking about your real estate portfolio, but if you manage energy for multiple properties,
you know that Heraclitus’ declaration has a ring of truth.
Buildings and organizations change over time. Processes are revamped. Employees retire or transfer. Remodeling happens. Space is repurposed from one function to another. And systems struggle (often unsuccessfully) to keep up with the pace.
Your energy management software is another system, and you may have been using it in the same way for years. But is your current approach the best approach? Have inevitable changes created an opportunity to do things differently and to do them better?
Today’s blog on software retro commissioning may help you answer that question.
At EnergyCAP, our software retro commissioning process is specifically designed to help maximize savings by revising, improving, and expanding an EnergyCAP software implementation to match a client’s current needs, capabilities, and expectations.
Whether the current situation involves staffing changes, a growing understanding of the capabilities of energy management software, new energy reporting mandates, business reorganization, or updated energy management priorities, software retro commissioning can offer increased value.
Our process starts with a free assessment. EnergyCAP offers a complimentary 90-minute consultation with an EnergyCAP account representative and an experienced project manager. From the consultation, we develop an action plan for maximizing EnergyCAP’s value for the organization. We evaluate client goals and evaluate them in relative to the current EnergyCAP license agreement. If changes are needed, we recommend options. Our initial findings are presented in a complimentary no-obligation written proposal. From there, the client can decide to move forward independently or in partnership with our professional staff.
