As we gear up for a productive New Year, we are taking this blog opportunity to highlight several resources of value to the community of readers we serve.
New Case Study
Toward the end of 2016, we completed a case study in collaboration with James City County, VA. Entitled One Ring to Rule Them All, the study shares the advantages of energy management software for a county government.
It’s a fun read that will get you thinking about savings opportunities in your organization.
Bill CAPture Video
In 2016, we rolled out a dedicated microsite describing our Bill CAPture service—a valuable option that is being requested more and more frequently in EnergyCAP software quotes. Bill CAPture offers energy managers major gains in productivity and convenience by eliminating the time-consuming task of utility bill data entry.
A brand new video at www.billcapture.com explains the Bill CAPture concept and advantages.
