Facility Management Technology Market Surges - Powerhouse Dynamics Rides the Wave
SiteSage, in use at thousands of these facilities, uses “Internet of Things” (IoT) technology to connect, monitor, analyze, and control equipment, resulting in improved equipment uptime, lower energy consumption, reduced labor costs and, in food service settings, enhanced food safety.
After seeing revenue more than double from 2014 to 2015, Powerhouse continued its rapid pace of growth in 2016, and reported the following:
- The company closed multiple, multi-year, multi-million dollar rollouts with existing customers across each of its 3 core markets: restaurants, convenience stores and retail stores
- In addition, first-time contracts were awarded by a number of major new customers who combined operate thousands of locations
- During 2016 Powerhouse Dynamics announced the release of a full end-to-end on premise Food Safety solution. The application aggregates and analyzes data from fixed sensors, kitchen equipment with factory-installed SiteSage sensors, and wireless probes to fully automate food safety reporting, including tracking of work flows and corrective actions
- The company continued to expand its network of equipment manufacturers leveraging SiteSage to connect their equipment to the cloud, providing mutual customers with significant new transparency into operations. Added in 2016 were HVAC, refrigeration and fryer manufacturers, among others. The company also introduced a multi-faceted SiteSage “Integration Layer” that greatly simplifies the process of integrating SiteSage with equipment
- Powerhouse Dynamics continued to gain widespread recognition for the industry-leading SiteSage platform, with 7 awards in 2016 from organizations as diverse as IoT Evolution, Environmental Leader, Massachusetts Technology Leadership Council and the CleanTech Group
- The company closed on a $6M+ round of financing. Participants in the round include existing investors Constellation New Energy, Point Judith Capital, SOSVentures, and the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center, plus new investor Emerald Technology Ventures.
“The past 12 months have been extremely exciting and represent a real breakthrough for the company across multiple dimensions,” says CEO Martin Flusberg. “We are beginning to see signs of early market maturation, meaning many more organizations are seeking solutions like SiteSage. We have extended our leadership position in leveraging IoT to deliver significant benefits to our customers, and are delighted to have won several awards recognizing our accomplishments in this area. Additionally, we are thrilled to welcome Emerald Technology Ventures as an investor, given their stellar reputation as an investor and their relationships with key players in related sectors. We look forward to taking advantage of the new financing to drive continued growth and innovation in 2017.”
