Recent wins across the United Kingdom

Written by Martin Carroll

For Buddy Platform today, smart spaces run the gamut from recreational vehicles, as seen by our work with Airstream, to schools like Kenyon College, Culver Academies and Whitefish School District. These are just a few of the many use cases for deployment of Buddy Ohm in helping organisations measure and verify energy consumption and drive effective operations.

In the UK where it’s been documented that 30% of energy used in commercial buildings is wasted, we’ve recently signed up new customers from varying types of business, all with the common objective of gaining access to real-time utility, energy and environmental data. Until today, this data was reserved for those with big budgets, and the newest buildings, but we are helping to lower that threshold to help all businesses and organisations reach business goals without compromising profits. Some of these recent Buddy Ohm customers in the UK include:

  • A leading Mexican restaurant in London
  • A historical London theatre
  • A regional energy procurement company
  • A non-profit fitness centre
  • A large plastics manufacturer

Individual businesses with varying business models like these are delving deeper into their utility, energy and refrigeration use not only because it makes good business sense to contain operational costs and be seen as environmental stewards, but in some places, like in the UK, government regulations mandate it for certain types of businesses.

Converging with this uptick of interest in Buddy Ohm in the UK, we are also pleased to announce our reseller partnership with Pangea in Europe to help enable the rapid distribution of our solutions across commercial and industrial sectors in the region. This expands the reach of Buddy to new channels and customers, in addition to existing relationships with Rizon IoT and Ingram Micro (UK) who already distribute nationally.

We’re encouraged by our increasing momentum in the UK and proud to support our customers there who recognise that gathering and visualising data is the first step in treating their energy data like any other business investment.
