Eco-System Client Performance Dashboard (Saas) + Mobile Applications

A Collaboration Between

Engagement Synopsis

Eco-System Summary: Eco-Enterprise's goal is to create a custom software (i.e.: SAAS w/ client performance dashboard) to offer our clients as tool relevant to the solutions we provide them and more. Eco-Enterprise's software will be called: "Eco-System". Clients will access this software online and/or as pre-installed on a mobile smartphone app or tablet app or otherwise installed on a TV display on-location within their facilities. Eco-System will be the visual aid to Eco-Enterprise client's real-time metrics in terms of energy reporting and savings (it will provide a visual illustration of the bridged value between the historical performance of their legacy systems and that of the performance with our newly--updated hardware/services once implemented). Eco-System will be a resource to clients highlighting savings in terms of their expenditures. Eco-System will be an educational tool for clients regarding showing the renewed impact that their updated business' operations and physical environment now offers the planet c/o Eco-Enterprise's solutions. Eco-System will literally report to the client how "Efficient, Economic and Environmentally responsible" they are once they are distinguished as an "Eco-Enterprise" business (e.g.: awarded "Certificate of Eco-Enterprise").
