AUM Adds Weather Data to its Advanced Analytics Platform

LOMBARD, Ill., Nov. 19, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- American Utility Management (AUM), the premier provider of utility management and energy services for the multifamily industry, announces the launch of Weather Data to its already robust Advanced Analytics platform. AUM's Advanced Analytics includes the most comprehensive set of business intelligence tools available for property owners and managers. Clients get easy access to portfolio level KPIs as well as detailed property level utility data to quickly identify trends, outliers and opportunities for improvement.

The addition of Weather Data helps clients understand temperature patterns and their effects on property utility usage.
