This combined with the new emphasis on green certification within the hotel industry, has changed completely his approach to the classical way of managing hotel operations.

Testimonial from Liam Mc Laughlin
Liam is: member of ISO TC242, the committee that wrote ISO 50001; consultant and trainer to ISO in Africa, Europe, Asia and South America; industrial energy efficiency expert with UNIDO; consultant to multinational corporations worldwide.
I use Enerit ISO 50001 software with my clients because I am drawn to the unique features in the software such as the workflow and action planning aspects. These features help to ensure excellent energy management practice throughout an organization. The software brings transparency, for example, senior managers can view their company’s energy management system by securely logging into the software.
The principles in ISO 50001 will help any organization to make significant energy savings. The software will help organisations to maximize these savings. It costs half the time and resources of what designing your own system would.
Using Enerit software, users do not have to worry about spending long periods of time designing their own ISO 50001 structured energy management system. This is because the system is already written for you, the template is there and it costs half the time and resources of what designing your own system would.
The software enables an organization to become certified to ISO 50001 a lot faster than they would in the absence of the software, University College Cork (UCC), a client of mine, for example, was certified in just three months using Enerit ISO 50001 software.
UCC have been successfully implementing energy saving measures and projects for decades and have been winning awards for some of these projects since the early 1990s. Given this history, it is inspiring to see the improvements in performance that the use of a systematic approach is bringing to them.
