This report provides a detailed comparison of 14 building energy management software applications to help corporate buyers save time, reduce costs and mitigate risks when selecting products and suppliers. Based on the proprietary Verdantix Green Quadrant methodology, the analysis combines benchmark data from 14 live product demonstrations, responses to a 130-point questionnaire and interviews with an independent panel of 15 customers across nine industries who have bought, or are planning to buy, building energy management software. The study finds that customers’ requirements are continuing to increase in complexity and six suppliers currently lead the building energy management software market. When selecting an application, buyers should focus on the value delivered by the software and supporting energy services.
