Schneider Electric Rebrands Online Energy Management and Sustainability Software as Resource Advisor
PR Log - Aug 02, 2012 - Louisville, KY. – Schneider Electric today announced the rebranding of its online energy management and sustainability platform to Resource Advisor. The software platform, previously known as dashboarDView, was obtained during the 2011 acquisition of Summit Energy by Schneider Electric.
“The transition to Resource Advisor reflects the necessity to provide a consistent visual design and the characteristics of legacy Schneider Electric software applications,” said Steve Wilhite, CEO of Summit Energy, a subsidiary of Schneider Electric. “Resource Advisor’s functionality will continue to provide uncommon and unmatched data accuracy, data visibility, and data management capabilities.”
With more than 17,000 global users, Resource Advisor provides secure access to the energy and sustainability data, reports, and summaries that drive enterprise energy and sustainability programs.
Don Anderson, Chief Sustainability Officer at Blackstone commented on Blackstone’s use of Resource Advisor saying, “The marketplace is crowded with tracking solutions focused on carbon, energy, costs, etc. Resource Advisor ties predictive energy cost modules to project prioritization, portfolio-wide diagnostics, and reporting. It is a ‘one stop’ platform for managing company cost and environmental performance.”
Anderson continued, “For Blackstone, this is critical in that many of our portfolio companies engage Summit Energy for energy procurement and billing services, which mean critical performance data is always available and ready in Resource Advisor. As a result, Blackstone has chosen Resource Advisor to serve as our own sustainability dashboard. The combination of portfolio-oriented diagnostics and project management is perfect for organizing and prioritizing both disparate and interconnected elements of an effective sustainability program.”
