EnergyCAP overview

EnergyCAP is a management and analysis software solution for organizations to track energy and non-energy utility usage. With the ability to group and benchmark multiple buildings, the system also permits flexible ways to capture bill data and monitor meter readings. Promising important analytical functionality for cost efficiency and environmental compliance, utility bill management tools span data entry, auditing, analysis and daily reporting. Being centralized and consolidated, EnergyCAP collates utility bill and meter data with reliability to build a traceable history of usage and expenditure.

This information can then be subject to integrated analytical features including cost avoidance for comparing current bills against yearly baselines to achieve more accurate savings insights. Options for data normalization, calendarization and usage versus weather help to factor in conditional parameters, while benchmarking ensures similar buildings or meters can be grouped to spot savings outliers. Budget building, forecasting and rates/tariff checking tools are also joined by sustainability feedback for tracking ENERGY STAR compliance and the monitoring of greenhouse gas emissions – all open to an extensive array of built-in reporting capabilities.

EnergyCAP has launched the City of Philadelphia into a new sphere of data processing power.

Review Source: Capterra

EnergyCAP has many tools to help organizations in various ways. Philadelphia has multiple utilities that are localized, as in, not spread through the country. With that said, we most like the reporting functions, ability to see use and cost quickly, great customer service, ability to easily share data with internal AND external stakeholders, EnergyCAP brings data to life with customizable reporting and dashboards, it works with Portfolio Manager to benchmark buildings more quickly, the ability to change hierarchies or move data within the organization quickly and efficiently with setup sheets, it has open API to communicate with other software in the City, and EnergyCAP uses Bill CAPture, which is a service that uploads bills into EnergyCAP. EnergyCAP has given our team more time to work on other projects using the data rather then spending time manipulating the data in spreadsheets or another cumbersome process.

(1) As senior energy manager, I love being able to have different data bases, yet still see and access them all. (2) Can produce virtually any report one could ever want. (3) Ability and flexibility to name and change all accounts and meters. (4) Set up in such a manner that one can access specific or general reports and info very fast. (5) Like how it now can produce reports in Excel or PDF's.

Most of the web software is modern. I love most of the web product, The ability to give rights to view or not view parts of the Ecap is very limited. The reports look like a beginner using Microsoft access for the first time in 1999. The reports are by far the ugliest I have seam by any vendor ..WOW they are ugly. The reports are so ugly we do not use them and we don't tell people they exist , we are too embarrassed. We tell people that the benchmarking section is the reports. The benchmarking section is the most helpful part of the program and you should expand it. Good job in this area.
