Streamline Portfolio Manager Data Entry with Web Services

In this webinar, you will learn how providers in the marketplace are helping their customers to benchmark in Portfolio Manager using web services – and how you can take advantage of these offerings as a building owner.

While many building owners and managers enter data into Portfolio Manager manually or through spreadsheet uploads, there are a large number of energy service providers, software platforms, and utilities that can upload your energy, water, waste, and/or property data directly into your account. Some organizations and utilities offer this service for free, while others integrate web services into their own software and value-added services. Through these services, building owners and managers can spend less time on data entry, and more time making decisions based on benchmarking results.

Attend this webinar if you’re interested in:

  • Learning more about providers that offer data exchange services through Portfolio Manager
  • Identifying which kind of service offering is right for your needs
