A carbon-tracking application that enables the monitoring of carbon consumption and output across a range of business operations and sectors.
Australian enterprise resource planning (ERP) and business intelligence (BI) software provider, Pronto Software has launched a carbon-tracking application that enables the monitoring of carbon consumption and output across a range of business operations and sectors.
A core feature of Pronto Software’s ERP-centric carbon tracking software revolves around offering business users the capability to track and monitor costs and efficiencies across various operations within their business. This capability provides transparency for managers to identify how their operations contribute to carbon output.
The technology behind the carbon-tracking functionality was developed by Pronto Software’s research and development team in Melbourne, and was included in the latest release of the company’s integrated ERP and BI solution, Pronto Xi.
The Pronto Xi carbon-tracking solution involves the capturing of activity data, the calculation of emissions and the presentation of results. Once implemented, it records activity data during normal business operations and business-specific operations can be easily integrated by using infrastructure tools.
According to Steve Hafey, Pronto Xi product manager at Pronto Software, the carbon-tracking functionality has been designed to assist Australian businesses to better understand how their business operations consume energy and produce carbon output. He states that the solution was developed through listening to customers who have started to assess and implement carbon management and reduction policies.
“If you can’t measure it, you can’t manage it. By identifying carbon hotspots across specific business operations, it becomes easier for managers to see where potential inefficiencies can be better managed. These hotspots will be different for every business and industry, but the overall effect is an improved impact on both the environment and bottom line results,” Hafey concludes.
