How are you different?
ResourceKraft’s software development team managed to deliver a product ‘Advisor’ that is easy to use and transfer the data to businesses in a simple and easy to use format. Advisor is an energy monitoring solution that presents live and historical energy data for analysis. The intuitive software engages its users through interactive charts, smart reports & emotive dashboards that use behavioural science to change energy consumption behaviour.
The key was to make the data accessible, easy to understand and easy to use to any member of a business. ResourceKraft’s mission is to empower businesses and allow them to manage their energy costs. Businesses have the liberty to choose how and when they want to receive the data. ResourceKraft has helped a number of businesses such as Thomond Park and the Milford Care Centre to name but a few. Thomond Park managed to save 27,792 kWh on electricity and the Milford Care Centre saved 1,000,000 litres of water. Saving energy in an efficient manner will definitely make a positive contribution to the environment.
