STATE COLLEGE, Pa., July 22, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The City of Chandler, Arizona, has selected EnergyCAP software for its new utility tracking system after a formal competitive bid process. With EnergyCAP, the City will improve bill processing efficiency, manage and analyze utility data, identify energy and cost savings, and document the benefits of energy conservation efforts.
"The City Council made energy conservation a priority for our organization, in part so we can mitigate the impact of rising utility costs and protect our taxpayers," said Kris Kircher, Chandler's Facility Maintenance Manager. "The integration and automation features of EnergyCAP will greatly enhance our efforts to manage our many utility accounts, track and analyze usage data, and find ways to reduce energy consumption in City buildings. The City of Chandler will be a more efficient organization with EnergyCAP."
In addition to tracking 2,300 electric, gas, and water utility accounts, EnergyCAP will also interface with the City's Oracle accounting system in order to create a "smart" front end for its utility accounting process. Utility bills will be audited for accuracy by EnergyCAP before they're paid by the accounting system. EnergyCAP will also receive utility bills in electronic format to reduce manual entry.
"We're very pleased to welcome Chandler to the growing family of organizations in Arizona that are deeply committed to gaining optimum value from energy information," said Steve Heinz, Founder and CEO of EnergyCAP, Inc. "Chandler joins the cities of Phoenix and Tucson, Pima County, Northern Arizona University, Pima Community College, and eight public school districts in using EnergyCAP to track utility data."

Software features include bill entry (manual, spreadsheet import, and EDI), bill tracking, an optional AP/GL interface, customizable bill approval workflow, audits, rate schedules, interval/production data tracking, cost avoidance (M &V), issue tracking, submeter tracking, virtual meter formulas, re-billing, greenhouse gas tracking, 300+ reports, automated ENERGY STAR building data submittal, building benchmarking, and graphical PowerViews.
