Capturx Streamlines Energy Audits by 33%, Enabling Energy Firms to Deliver Energy Savings and Efficiencies Faster

Adapx to Showcase Capturx Energy Solutions for Digital Pens and New Customers at the World Energy Engineering Congress

WASHINGTON, DC -- (Marketwire) -- 12/07/10 -- Adapx, the company that is changing the way mobile teams collect data and collaborate, today announced Capturx energy management solution showcases at the World Energy Engineering Congress and Lime Energy as a new customer. As green building retrofitting accelerates, energy managers are scrambling for ways to deal with the shortage of energy engineers by improving productivity and streamlining operations. Capturx software for digital pens enables energy teams to perform up to 33% more energy audits by automatically digitizing energy audit data collected on paper and eliminating the delays, costs, and risks of manual data re-entry and scanning.

"With Capturx, our energy auditors can dramatically speed up data capture," said Burke Ewers, VP Sales, Lime Energy. A leader in providing a full range of energy efficiency solutions, Lime Energy has completed nearly 2 ½ billion square feet of energy efficiency projects since 1980. In addition to providing customers with energy efficiency ROI of 40 to 50%, Lime provides customers with a more comfortable, productive, and pure physical environment. "Capturx helps us to speed up projects so customers can enjoy their energy savings sooner, which is good for their utility bills and the environment," added Ewers.

Capturx automates the processing of data collected on energy audit forms and building plans during energy audit walk-throughs. Data is digitized as it is written on paper by the digital pen, which creates both normal ink-on-paper copies and digital records stored on the pen. When the pen is connected to a PC by USB or to a cell-phone using built-in Bluetooth, all the data is instantly sent to the back-office and integrated into the original Excel files, PDF files, SharePoint document libraries, or ArcGIS. The back-office gets real-time access to the original handwriting and converted data tables so they can complete customer estimates and projects faster. Energy auditors can spend more time with customers, performing audits and expediting energy improvements instead of paperwork.

"The unprecedented demand for building energy efficiency improvements has led to a severe shortage of energy auditors," said Ken Schneider, CEO of Adapx. "We're pleased to help energy management firms overcome the bottlenecks, so their teams can serve more clients and expedite energy efficiencies which is important for all of us."

Attendees of the World Energy Engineering Congress (WEEC) can learn more about how Capturx is used to streamline energy audits, facilities management, environmental engineering projects, and utilities management by leaders such as NASA, MACTEC, the Port of Seattle, Pepco, and others. The World Energy Engineering Congress meets at the Washington DC Convention Center on December 8th-9th.

Capturx will be showcased at WEEC in:

  • The Adapx Booth (#427) for hands-on demos on December 8th or 9th
  • A Capturx Presentation in WEEC Workshop Presentation Area 1 on December 8th at 2:30 PM.

When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
Data is the fuel that drives the machine learning algorithmic engines and ultimately provides the business value.

Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
IoT solutions exploit operational data generated by Internet-connected smart “things” for the purpose of gaining operational insight and producing “better outcomes” (for example, create new business models, eliminate unscheduled maintenance, etc.). The explosive proliferation of IoT solutions will result in an exponential growth in the volume of IoT data, precipitating significant Information Governance issues: who owns the IoT data, what are the rights/duties of IoT solutions adopters towards t...
