MINNEAPOLIS--(www.EnergyPrint.com), a leading innovator of online energy management and reporting tools, today launched the next addition to its world-class energy reporting engine. “Energy Alerts” automatically mines EnergyPrint’s vast database of utility data and alerts property managers to take immediate action on irregularities.)--EnergyPrint (
“Alerts, like all of EnergyPrint’s tools, is very helpful and very easy to use”
The new feature continuously monitors a property’s portfolio data and sends monthly Alerts to property managers when energy data falls outside a pre-designated “normal” range. EnergyPrint will flag both the good and bad data, spotting the troublemakers as well as celebrating the strong performers.
“Property managers are busy, juggling multiple tasks for tenants and owners,” said Mike Williams, EnergyPrint’s director of product development. “Energy Alerts takes one thing off their list by continuously monitoring each portfolio and proactively notifying them when something needs to be investigated.”
At a portfolio level, Alerts assesses year-over-year and month-over-month energy anomalies, including raw consumption and cost changes, as well as weather-normalized consumption changes. The new tool also helps to identify properties that may be eligible for ENERGY STAR certification. Another Alerts bonus allows property managers to share their EnergyPrint account with their mechanical or electrical contractors so they also can be alerted, insuring prompt resolution.
“Alerts, like all of EnergyPrint’s tools, is very helpful and very easy to use,” said Cindy MacDonald, director of properties and redevelopment for Twin Cities-based Kraus-Anderson Realty Company. “Alerts give me a quick, visual notification to take action, which can save me consumption and money.”
