Birmingham, AL (PRWEB) March 27, 2014
Entegreat, a leading provider of consulting services and specialized applications to deliver operational excellence, and energy and water management to Manufacturing Industries, today announced that enCONTEXT, its cloud-based Energy and Water Management solution for Manufacturing has earned Top Product of the Year honors from Environmental Leader. enCONTEXT was considered by the judges as an exemplary product.
The Environmental Leader Product & Project Award is a program recognizing excellence in products and services that provide companies with energy and environmental benefits, or in projects implemented by companies that improved environmental or energy management and increased the bottom line.
One judge said of enCONTEXT: “Entegreat shows a strong understanding of the industrial energy management space, the specific needs of the industry for automated data collection, analytics, and the need to integrate with legacy production software like MES. Entegreat has also shown the ability to innovate with the use of a cloud based application on the production floor.”
Scores were determined by a panel of independent judges headed by Matthew Littlefield of LNS Research and also including judges from companies including Anheuser Busch InBev, Arrow Electronics, Autodesk, Citigroup Inc., Con Agra Foods, Environmental & Operational Risk Management, GlaxoSmithKline, ISS Facility Services, Microsoft, Owens Corning, Power Advocate, Puma, Sam’s Club, Sustainability and Risk Management Reputation Limited, Trupoint Advisers, the University of California Berkeley, Williams Creek Consulting, and YES Bank.
With today’s crowded playing field, energy and sustainability professionals have a notoriously difficult time knowing what products to choose to help their companies increase energy, environmental and sustainability performance. The Environmental Leader Product & Project Awards give companies a solid base of products, vetted by experts, from which to choose.
“The caliber of the entries was impressive, and truly showed the innovation taking place in the industry today,” says Paul Nastu, publisher of Environmental Leader. “The judges had their work cut out for them. It was a tough playing field for those that entered, and the products that were awarded Top Product of the Year are those that the judges say have viable attributes that set them apart from others in the field.”
enCONTEXT is a vendor neutral, cloud-based application providing comprehensive insight into customers’ energy profiles and consumption at each manufacturing site. It reduces energy decisions being made in isolation by putting energy in the context of production and providing visibility at all levels of the organization, including the plant floor.
enCONTEXT gives customers the ability to know which of their products use the most resources to produce, providing granular detail to give customers knowledge of energy consumption per each unit of production by shift, production line, and site. It gives the information needed to re-stage production to take advantage of the best utility rates, and can help customers correlate between energy consumption and other production variables. Customers can use this knowledge to track energy and water onto a bill-of-materials like any other product part or component.
