Weather, lighting, heating, cooling, refrigeration equipment, and associate behavior have incredible impacts on grocery and convenience store resource management. Monitoring resource-intensive equipment and facilities is essential to optimizing the cost and consumption of energy, yet the volume of sites producing that data creates a systems and human resources challenge for grocers. Ecova’s fully outsourced solutions yield the data visibility and expertise that’s foundational to efficient grocery resource management and bottom-line savings.
“We can’t possibly know about every rate increase and decrease in every state, but Ecova does, and they back up their budget assumptions and variances to help us manage budget risk.”
