Alectris and Nautilus Solar Energy (Nautilus) announce the successful completion of the first phase implementation of ACTIS at Nautilus. ACTIS is the world’s first Solar Enterprise Resource Planning Platform delivering a comprehensive and integrated suite of digital operations for solar assets.
Nautilus seeked a solution to provide its team with a centralized platform for monitoring, alerting and dispatching, and real-time accurate reporting because of the challenges it faced. These included managing a dispersed portfolio of assets with multiple monitoring systems that used multiple software platforms creating the complexity and difficulty of operations management and PPA billing, resulting in time-consuming reporting. It was imperative for Nautilus to attain a software solution to address these inefficiencies to minimize its team members’ non-productive time and streamline operations and capable of supporting sustainable growth.
ACTIS was implemented in a five-step process, to incorporate consolidation of data from different monitoring systems, standardization of alerting, platform customization, integration with accounting software, customization and design of existing and reports for operations and finance; for which yielded significant improvement in operations up to 77% in Nautilus’ solar project management processes and procedures.
“Several months into this highly complex and comprehensive ACTIS implementation, we were able to demonstrate the capabilities of our software and the real benefits to Nautilus with tangible results. The success of the project was possible due to the great experience of the ACTIS team, but more importantly, due to the close collaboration, professionalism and commitment of the Nautilus team. I believe this project and the success is a unique case study for the whole industry. ACTIS can deliver the same for similar companies experiencing the growth pressures and challenges of increasing complexities of operations.” – commented Vassilis Papaeconomou, Managing Director of Alectris.
“The ACTIS platform has created a foundation for our entire Asset Management Business that enables us to focus on the health of the asset both physically and financially and in real time. I have been highly impressed with their ability to support and implement the customization we have requested over the last two years. They are transparent on the timeline of all customizations and meet their commitments. Nautilus is scaling at a rate that could only be successful with the help of ACTIS.” – summed up Stefanie Padgett, VP Asset Management of Nautilus Solar Solutions.
