Drive sustainability with Pro-Sapien’s Energy Consumption Tracking Software on Office 365
As the environmental impact of industry is increasingly scrutinized, understanding what it takes to run operations is required in order to become a more sustainable organization.
Pro-Sapien’s ISO 14001-supportive Energy Consumption Software is integrated into your existing SharePoint portal, making it easier than ever to track electricity, gas and water consumption—and identify where efficiencies can be made.
As with all modules, Energy Consumption comes packaged with the Pro-Sapien Action Manager and Business Intelligence applications, equipping Environmental Managers with the tools they need to become even more productive.
In enterprises, staying on top of multiple sites’ consumption is a challenge when relying on paper forms and spreadsheets.
Pro-Sapien makes the process of collecting consumption data easier by providing Site Managers with a monthly return form to fill in their site’s electricity, gas and water usage data.
Site Managers must complete and return the form electronically within a timescale set by you. The information they input is stored within the Pro-Sapien data warehouse, driving metrics that you’re able to see in configured dashboards and reports.
Go one step further and integrate your monthly return form with your sites’ smart meters.
Electricity, gas and water usage data is pulled through automatically, avoiding the need for Site Managers to fill in the form.
Pro-Sapien can set up a third-party integration where there is an API available from the smart meter manufacturer. We’ll look at this on a case by case basis.
Automated notifications take the pressure off you to remind Site Managers when their site’s monthly return is due, or when they are assigned a task.
Reminders are sent in the run up to the item’s due date—if it goes overdue, an escalation workflow kicks in to copy in the owner’s line manager, ensuring nothing slips through the cracks.
Inline validation on the monthly return form means when an unexpected meter reading is entered, additional information can be required.
For example, if a site’s electricity consumption is more than 10% over what it was last month, or if a site uses 15% more water this month than it usually does, the form will prompt the user to provide an explanation in a free-text box.
In these cases, the form is routed through a review process for an accredited individual to approve the reading, or prompt follow-up if required.
Capturing the data is only half the story—it’s what you do with it that counts.
View electricity, gas and water consumption across the organization to gauge performance and identify where specific sites could become more efficient.
Data is displayed in user-friendly charts, graphs and maps for easy analysis and drill-through.
Pro-Sapien works with you to configure these dashboards so that you receive a meaningful system that tells you when you need to know.
You’re not left with the dashboards that Pro-Sapien configures for you—accredited users can utilize Microsoft Power BI to create and share their own graphical, real-time reports going forward.
Power BI is a business analytics service by Microsoft. It aims to provide interactive visualizations and business intelligence capabilities with an interface simple enough for end users to create their own reports and dashboards.

The Energy Consumption module can be implemented as part of a wider Pro-Sapien system to support ISO 14001. We help you achieve this by providing functionality such as:
- All processes are repeatable and come with a timestamped audit trail
- Regulatory requirements can be stored in a compliance/permits library
- Capture and monitor environmental data such as waste generation and energy consumption
- Conduct internal audits and inspections
- Compare environmental indicators against legal requirements
- Identify non-compliances by using configured KPIs
- Manage corrective and preventive actions with the central Action Manager
