Decision_Point™ business intelligence software combines KPI dashboard and flexible analytics to increase visibility and enhance decision making

Atlanta, GA – October 17, 2011 – Prenova, Inc., an enterprise energy management company, today announced the release of Decision_Point™, an advanced business intelligence platform for tracking and analyzing energy performance data. A key addition to the company’s cloud-based energy management suite, Decision_Point gives energy managers, senior leaders, and others access to the data and tools they need to monitor performance, identify savings opportunities, and analyze results at the site level or across an entire portfolio.

When energy management results fall short of expectations, it’s often due to a lack of good information. In many organizations, it’s hard to track energy performance because the relevant data isn’t easily accessible. It’s stored in different formats and in different locations, making it difficult to create reports or monitor KPIs. Decision_Point helps organizations overcome this challenge by combining data from three sources (utility bills, EMS/BAS alarms, and equipment work orders) in a centralized location and providing flexible business intelligence tools to make the data more useful.
“No two buildings ever operate exactly the same, no matter how similar they are,” said Michael J. Nark, Prenova’s President and Chief Executive Officer. “For an organization with hundreds of facilities, these differences can add up. So it’s important to consistently track energy performance and look for ways to improve efficiency. To do that, Operations personnel need access to the right data. A flexible dashboard application with quick, visual snapshots of key information is best for day-to-day tracking. For more detailed analysis, it helps to have a solution with basic reporting and analytics tools that meet the needs of most users, but that also offers advanced functionality for power users. This is the vision that drove us to Decision_Point.”

CatNet Systems Decision_Point is delivered via a Software as a Service (SaaS) model, requiring no upfront capital or hardware investment, and helps organizations with multiple facilities track and analyze energy data from a single Internet portal.
