In December 2018 the social enterprise Empower Community, a developer and asset manager of solar projects in the UK went live with ACTIS ERP to manage its portfolio of more than 10.000 domestic rooftop solar assets.
ACTIS, the world’s leading Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) platform, has been deployed to seamlessly integrate Empower Community’s monitoring, asset management, and O&M activities into a single platform.
Before deploying ACTIS, Empower Community was relying on three different monitoring platforms that created a lot of unnecessary workload as well as inconsistency and errors. With ACTIS, Empower Community has centralized technical, financial and operational data while streamlining, monitoring and managing their subcontractors’ activities from one single platform.
Constantinos Peonides, Director of Alectris commented:
We are very pleased to become partners with Empower Community and join their mission to accelerate the transition to sustainable low carbon local economies. We are honoured to contribute to this great project and provide added value with our innovative ERP solution. ACTIS plays a key role in reducing costs and maximizing performance. We want our clients to be our partners – we strive to consistently add value to our partners and assist them in realizing their mission and goals.
Empower Community successfully built a large portfolio of social housing projects across the UK. Its efforts were recognized during the Solar Power Portal Awards ceremony in Birmingham in 2017, where Empower Community won in the Residential Rooftop PV category.
About Empower Community:
Empower Community is a social enterprise that balances the interests of all stakeholders by providing a high-quality investment opportunity with attractive returns, reinvesting profits in further community projects and facilitating a community share in revenues and ultimate community ownership of assets. While grass-roots, action-oriented responses to climate change continue to grow exponentially, the current limited access to finance is hampering the wholesale development and implementation of distributed energy solutions at anything like the scale or speed required.
Alectris delivers asset care innovation for the global solar industry. With our integrated suite of operations, maintenance and asset management services, award-winning software ACTIS, and retrofit technologies, we empower owners with full control of their portfolios to realize worry-free, high performing solar assets.
