Client Testimonials

Chad Dalrymple, Energy Manager for School District 68 in Nanaimo remarked on how little time he spends confirming that his data is accurate – compared to his previous experience with Utility Manager where he estimated he would spend 50% of his time on the system verifying if he could trust the data.  Over the course of 4 years he had to train 4 people on Utility Manager and the process of accurately reading bills to ensure consistent data.  With PUMA he has experienced no such difficulties and regards the ability to trust his data as one of the key benefits of using PUMA in his every day work.

When a new smart-meter was installed incorrectly at one of West Vancouver School District’s secondary schools - resulting in data loss for several months, the PUMA team notified the district of the issue early on.  When the problem was corrected and revised figures were issued the PUMA team had already updated the system before the district thought to ask.  The Secretary-Treasurer of the school district, Julia Leiterman was soundly impressed and expressed her sincere thanks.

As part of the initial setup for School District 41 Burnaby Schools, Prism obtained a complete account history statement for the water accounts from the City of Burnaby to that included the actual fees paid for each month – depending on whether early payment discounts were applied.  This resulted in more precise costs than were captured in their previous system ‘Utility Manager’, and their Energy Manager – Josh Munro was duly impressed with the results.
