PET-2020_ A Year of Challenges, Changes, and Opportunities

Happy New Year!

While the developments of 2020 left many of us wondering what was coming nextPhoenix was able to flex new muscles and rise to meet the occasion.  There were plenty of challenges and no shortage of changes which we turned into opportunities for our customers. Our goal for the year was to figure out how to help our customers in the most impactful ways possible. 

I wanted to share just a few things we did last year that we’re really excited about because it will or has already impacted YOU, our customer: 

1. Managed a myriad of COVID challenges while saving our customers Millions of dollars 
We became an extension of our customer’s operations teams in 2020 by managing thousands of store openings/closing, scheduling changes, and accommodating compliance orders. We developed and implemented creative ways to manage associate and customer comfort while wearing PPE. without breaking the bank. Ultimately, we helped to save money when stores were closed and made sure they were open and comfortable as scheduled
2. Found $10,000,000 in utility incentives
Getting our EDX software platform approved for utility incentives could not have come at a better time. We were able to breathe new life into budgets by finding over $10,000,000 in utility incentives for our customers by deploying advance energy strategies.  

3. Secured Strategic Partnerships 

To further support our customers with their Digital Transformations, Phoenix became an official trade ally and partnered with Microsoft as the Energy and Asset IOT analytics layer in Microsoft’s US Smart Buildings Program. Recognizing we had a significant role to play in facilitating demand response participation for our customerswe leveraged our newly launched DM 2.0 along with key partnerships with DR aggregators like Enersponse, Leap, and Voltus to help our customers attain their Demand reduction goals. 

4. Deployed Demand Manager 2.0  
This enhancement to our platform along with our DR partnerships allows you to reduce demand consumption of your equipment with the click of a button and take advantage of lucrative DR dollarsLearn more. 

At the end of the day, it’s about helping our customers be successful while saving them time and money along the way. 

Here is to the next year and all the amazing things we’ll do together.
