Ecova, an energy and sustainability management company, announced the availability of the Ecova Energy and Sustainability Management Platform, an enterprise software solution designed to help commercial and industrial clients manage, analyze and report on their resource usage data through a single intuitive platform.
The Ecova Platform is the foundation for energy and sustainability management, and provides businesses with the insights needed to increase operational efficiency, reduce costs, and achieve sustainability goals, the company said.
“Energy and sustainability management is no longer a ‘nice to have,’ it is critical to the bottom line and market leadership,” said Jeff Heggedahl, president and CEO of Ecova. “Gaining broad visibility and precise insight through a single platform can help build lasting advantages for a client’s business and the environment.”
With Ecova Platform, organizations will have an all-in-one solution that removes the need to go to separate applications or databases for facility, accounting, cost and resource consumptive data – all significant drivers of data and accounting irregularities.
The Platform offers at-a-glance customizable access, information and reporting features depending on the role and need in an organization, while configuration and reporting tools provide insight across the broad spectrum of energy and sustainability management – including electricity, natural gas, water, waste, telecom or carbon, Ecova said.
Walgreens has been using Ecova platform for managing its energy and sustainability needs. It helps them understand their customer needs and better visualize their energy data. The platform also helps them to identify and manage locations which fall above usage benchmarks in order to significantly reduce operational costs.
The enhanced reporting and viewing features of the platform give users the capability to gauge consumption and cost trends at the macro level or drill down into the individual bill, line item or location.
