JOHNS CREEK, Ga., April 23, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The City of Huntsville, Alabama has selected UtilityTRX as its utility bill management and data analytics software solution for reducing utility costs, measuring building performance and tracking sustainability goals on more than 100 buildings that equate to over 1.5 million square feet.
UtilityTRX's distinctive advantage over competitors includes its simple yet powerful dashboard-driven data analytics interface that is delivered in a turnkey package. UtilityTRX features utility bill tracking, bill payment processing, automated bill audit, case management, benchmarking, utility data analytics, rate optimization, weather normalized savings enterprise reporting, metering analytics, greenhouse gas tracking and Energy Star scoring. More importantly, the City of Huntsville is currently competing for the $5 million dollar Georgetown University Energy Prize and UtilityTRX will play an integral part in providing Huntsville its efficiency tracking reports for that competition.
Some systems integrations will be involved. UtilityTRX will be providing Huntsville staff with meter analytical interfaces using data collected from Honeywell WEBS-AX Metering. Looking to the future, UtilityTRX will be working towards streamlining utility bill payments through Tyler Technologies Accounting System (used by Huntsville). Huntsville's building energy data will automatically be submitted to the Energy Star Portfolio Manager for scoring.
UtilityTRX has been used for 9 years by consulting firms to service major Fortune 500 accounts. Recently, a Florida-based client with over $200 million in annual spend saved close to $1.2 million when consultants using UtilityTRX uncovered rate opportunities, water leaks, meter errors, rate discrepancies and inefficiencies within their operations. All these opportunities were found despite the customer having a full-time energy staff that was managing data in an Access database and had already uncovered the traditional savings opportunities (low hanging fruit). With UtilityTRX detailed analytics and dashboards, the consulting firm was more aptly able to uncover the deeply hidden savings. A facility or energy department without UtilityTRX is like an accounting department without accounting software.
UtilityTRX features dashboard-driven, utility data analytics that turn mountains of utility bill data into a seamless process for validating charges, paying bills, reporting on operational performance and optimizing rates. The Company is based in Johns Creek, Georgia.
