Dude Solutions Selects Urjanet for Big Energy Data

Urjanet Inc  |  June 10, 2014   |  Energy & Sustainability  |  Urjanet News  


Urjanet is excited for our new partnership with Dude Solutions to provide timely, high-quality, big data energy management solutions to their clients. Our companies are teaming up to solve one of the biggest issues facing facility managers’ sustainability and energy efficiency efforts: the challenge of acquiring and managing the data organizations need to make smarter, more profitable and eco-friendly energy decisions.

“We are excited to partner with Urjanet, especially as energy costs remain one of the largest expenses within a school’s maintenance and operations budget. Our mission as a company is to assist educational professionals in better managing operations and saving money, which in turn helps make them more successful,” said Lee Prevost, President & Co-Founder of Dude Solutions. “Integrating with Urjanet’s Big Energy Data supports our mission to be a good steward of our client’s trust and investment.”

Dude Solutions offers cloud software solutions for facility managers in two different markets: SchoolDude and FacilityDude.

SchoolDude serves as the market leader in cloud asset management, delivering education-specific applications to help both small and large institutions better manage their facilities, IT and business operations.

More than 6,000 educational institutions are using SchoolDude solutions to streamline maintenance work order and IT help desk management, schedule preventive maintenance and plan for capital replacements, increase inventory accountability, maximize after-hours facility use and utility consumption.

“For schools systems with multiple facilities, gathering good energy data is a daunting task because there are no energy data standards in the industry,” said Urjanet CEO, Sanjoy Malik. “Each utility speaks a different language with different structures, rates, semantics, and tariffs. Urjanet has a solution to this problem, and by partnering with SchoolDude we can help schools make smarter, eco-friendly decisions which will ultimately save taxpayers money.”

As a complimenting platform, FacilityDude’s broad suite of web applications is revolutionizing the business of managing facilities for more than 2,000 organizations, clubs, and local governments around the country.

“Our clients often need a way to better manage utility data,” said Tom Knox, President of FacilityDude. “Our partnership with Urjanet allows us to help solve a challenge for our clients, while also providing them valuable savings.”

According to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), energy used by commercial and industrial buildings in the United States is responsible for nearly 50 percent of national emissions of greenhouse gases that contribute to global climate change. Energy usage must be understood before it can before it can be reduced. That’s why acquiring accurate, complete and timely energy data is the critical first step for organizations to identify opportunities to reduce energy costs and carbon emissions.

Urjanet’s partnership with Dude Solutions aims to achieve two goals. First, this will eliminate the process of manual data entry for monthly utility bills, as this will remove the arduous task of gathering data. Secondly, Dude Solutions clients will be able to analyze Urjanet’s utility data to cut costs and improve operational efficiency. Together we’re helping companies gain clear insights to reduce both their utility spend and carbon footprint.
