Alectris, the global asset care innovation provider for the solar industry, has collaborated with Profergy, a specialist integrator of software solutions for the renewable sector, to bring its ACTIS ERP product to the Australian market for the first time. With decades of software integration experience, Profergy will represent Alectris to provide sales and deployment of ACTIS ERP for local customers.
Australia is a pivotal region for renewable energy growth, as it shifts from a reliance on coal power to increasing market penetration from renewable energy including utility and domestic solar projects. But with new rules applied by the Australian Electricity Market Operator (AEMO) on transmission reliability and grid stability, there is increasing importance placed not only on being able to understand the performance and output of clean energy projects, but also the effective management of project compliance with evolving grid protocols.
ACTIS ERP, developed by Alectris, integrates all data and business process information into one place, providing a centralised hub for monitoring, ticketing and technical and financial asset management. The platform is used globally to automate crucial asset management activity, increasing efficiency and reducing costs across the board. As solar portfolios grow in Australia amidst new regulations, ACTIS scales with businesses to accommodate growing data and process needs.
Vassilis Papaeconomou, Managing Director of Alectris said: “The Australian market offers a significant opportunity for renewables, but under recent regulatory change, there is short term pressure in ensuring that owners and operators run their assets in compliance with the latest rulings on performance reliability. We pride ourselves in consistently elevating the productivity of assets and streamlining processes, saving our customers both time and money. Originally developed to solve our own asset management needs across live project scenarios, we understand the crucial importance of operations and maintenance in the context of the wider project. With the added support of software specialist, Profergy, we are confident that the full benefits of ACTIS ERP will be realised for owner-operators.”
Matt Stubbs, CEO of Profergy, said: “Alectris’ significant industry experience has grown into data and services, resulting in an exciting software platform. We are confident that ACTIS ERP will be of significant benefit to the Australian market, particularly considering the regional challenges. As experts in integrating digital solutions to support end-to-end project management, we are looking forward to rolling out this service to customers looking to transform their renewable business operations.”
