STATE COLLEGE, Pa., Jan. 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Energy management software publisher Good Steward Software has announced record sales in 2009 and a new company name. Sales revenue was up 50% from 2008, the eighth consecutive year-over-year increase in sales. A record number of education, government and commercial multi-site organizations became EnergyCAP clients in 2009. By year-end, the company was averaging almost 200 new energy tracking users each week.
Steve Heinz, company founder and Chief Executive Officer, said, "We're very pleased that both sales and users grew at unprecedented rates in 2009, despite the challenging economic conditions. This underscores the value and importance that our clients place in what I've been preaching for thirty years -- that getting a handle on your energy information is the first step toward energy efficiency.
"We changed our name to strengthen the EnergyCAP brand, but of course remain fundamentally focused on helping clients be good stewards of their limited energy and fiscal resources. Since energy is the most controllable operating expense in most organizations, good stewardship starts with effective energy management because you can't manage what you don't measure.
"We expect growth to continue in 2010 as we launch our initial web-based SaaS (Software as a Service) version of EnergyCAP and release upgrades to our three core products. We're also anxiously anticipating an enthusiastic response to a new shared savings offering that will return utility bill refunds and cost recoveries to clients at no out-of-pocket expense."
