The property manager is the lynchpin between the physical building and the financial value of the asset. A successful property manager handles countless responsibilities while interfacing with building engineers, tenants, asset managers, security, cleaning, as well as multiple vendors. On top of putting out fires and keeping all of these balls in the air, you’re expected to understand the dynamics of electricity supply markets, the ins and outs of utility tariffs, upcoming regulatory changes that may affect your building(s), explain why there are variances versus your utility budgets, implement sustainability/energy directives from above, and understand and report how all of this affects tenant leases, revenue, and overall energy costs. You don’t ask your auto mechanic to perform your root canal, so why go it alone or hire an unqualified firm when managing your building’s energy?
Don’t hire EnergyWatch if…
- You have plenty of spare time and enjoy manually entering data into an excel spreadsheet where it can’t be easily accessed by other members of your organization.
- You’re not interested in what your top competitors are doing.
- You’d rather hire 5 different energy management firms with a narrow focus that are unwilling to work together AND you’re happy to pay multiple times for the same data while wasting time interfacing with each firm.
Otherwise, if you’re looking to make your life easier and are searching for the go-to expert in energy procurement, utility data management, budgeting, and reporting, then we’re your team. The largest commercial and corporate real estate firms trust EnergyWatch to manage their energy portfolios because we understand that energy management does not happen in a vacuum (so we don’t provide services in silos). All of our services are integrated within our watchwire platform so you can most effectively leverage the invoice and real-time interval data from your property to drive cost reductions, increase energy income, optimize operations, comply with regulations, explain budget variances, and report to senior management.
