Infor Helps Companies Reduce Costs Through Energy Management
Infor, a leading provider of business application software serving more than 70,000 customers, today announced the Infor Energy Performance Management module to provide a top down view of energy consumption. The enhancement originated from Infor's acquisition of ENXSuite, a cloud-based energy performance management platform, in October 2011. The Infor Energy Performance Management module generates a high-level overview of energy consumption to help customers manage energy costs and regulate sustainable corporate policy.
- Infor Energy Performance Management offers users a comprehensive view of energy consumption, allowing corporate policymakers to determine the success of energy conservation initiatives and identify their organization's carbon footprint. The module also provides a bottom up view when integrated with existing Infor EAM solutions to deliver insight into individual asset behaviors.
- The solution establishes a centralized system that is capable of tracking both qualitative and quantitative metrics for energy consumption. This level of visibility allows businesses to justify asset management decisions, including replacements and upgrades, by projecting specific dollar savings amounts.
- Infor Energy Performance Management generates numerous automatic alerts to notify users of energy inequalities that could degrade asset performance or when consumption has exceeded established monthly peak demand consumption. Alerts are also distributed to notify employees about potential billing problems like missing utility invoices.
- The solution incorporates utility bill data from energy providers, enabling businesses to monetize the energy consumed by a given asset to determine its level of performance.
"The integration of Infor Energy Performance Management provides our customers with more hands on control over the sustainability of their company by delivering quantifiable, in-depth energy intelligence," said Kevin Price, director, EAM, Infor. "Infor's development of this product is a direct testament to our company's use of acquisition to further develop our product portfolio, helping our customers to address industry challenges with their Infor solutions."
Infor is the third-largest provider of enterprise applications and services, helping 70,000 customers in 194 countries improve operations, drive growth, and quickly adapt to changes in business demands.
