SYDNEY, Jan. 7, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Verdantix, an independent analyst firm, has named CarbonSystems a leading vendor in energy management software for the second consecutive year. The analysis also reveals that buyers are spending more on software applications that help to cut energy use.
Buyers take a strategic view of energy management software
"The new Verdantix analysis (http://www.verdantix.com/index.cfm/papers/Products.Details/product_id/480/green-quadrant-energy-management-software-global-2013/-) reveals that corporations have shifted to a strategic view of energy management, and software vendors that meet buyers' needs are winning favour and market share," said David Solsky, CEO of CarbonSystems.
"Leading corporations now see energy as a strategic financial issue to be managed globally. We have therefore aimed our value proposition at CFOs and line-of-business managers in addition to operational teams such as facility, energy and operations managers.
"Buyers want cloud based, enterprise-scale applications that can be deployed across hundreds of sites and geographies," said David Solsky. "They also want solutions that quickly and easily let them drill down from a corporate-level view of energy data into specific geographies, business lines and asset categories."
CarbonSystems leadership position
Independent analyst firm Verdantix judged Australian company CarbonSystems (http://www.globalcarbonsystems.com) as one of five global leading vendors based on an independent, fact-based comparative analysis of companies offering energy management software applications.
Published today, the new Verdantix report combines benchmark data from live product demonstrations, responses to a 134 point questionnaire, and interviews with an independent panel of 15 enterprise customers who have bought or are planning to buy energy management software, representing firms with combined revenue of $340 billion.
"CarbonSystems has reinforced its position in the Leaders' Quadrant for the second year running," said David Metcalfe, Verdantix CEO. "They have clearly been able to leverage their Australian market heritage, where a combination of carbon legislation, rapidly rising energy prices and a mature smart grid infrastructure have all contributed to the rapid evolution of the CarbonSystems technology platform. The progress they continue to make is impressive for a company of their size".
"CarbonSystems' leadership position is based on its strong capability in several key domains – energy reporting and analysis, security and data auditability, utility bill management, energy monitoring and targeting, said Metcalfe. "After successfully revamping its dashboards during 2012, CarbonSystems is building new analysis and modelling tools in 2013 to enhance the business intelligence of its solution".
"CarbonSystems is among a few providers at the forefront of the energy management software market worldwide. Its proven ability to capture, integrate and manage energy data for large firms in diverse industries gives them a strong market position."
Verdantix analysis reveals that the US market for carbon and energy management software will grow to $558 million by 2014.
