Why Benchmarking is Important

Benchmarking compares your usage, spend, process or performance metrics to similar businesses. It also compares to industry bests and best practices. In efficiency management, benchmarking helps to support the selection, planning and delivery of projects and programs. Benchmarking is important because it paints a picture of current conditions and allows for better tracking of progress and results.

Efficiency Update

Many clients are quite efficient in many ways and quite inefficient in other ways.  Even after energy upgrades and recycling programs, there can still be ideas and new developments to help improve processes and performance.  Efficiency Updates is where you will find tips, tricks and stories that can be useful as you take efficiency to the next level.

Outdated energy management plans and untracked waste disposal practices can result in overspending.

A plan to optimize of your plans and practices can result in savings – both time and money!  You save the time you would spend understanding and explaining how the budget was exceeded.  You save the money you would spend when costs skyrocket due to inefficiencies.

Most organizations can achieve annual energy savings of 2-10% through better energy management and some have even seen as high as 60% savings.  Healthcare organizations can reduce the amount of general waste found in regulated medical waste and save 10% in disposal costs.

Let us tailor an individualized solution to take your efficiency to the next level.
