Helping utilities, businesses, and individuals use energy wisely is the focus for CLEAResult. Yet the professional services company, which designs and implements energy-efficiency and demand-response programs for its global clients, has a larger mission. “I like to say we’re in the business of trying to save the world—one kilowatt hour and one therm at a time,” says Leisa Tremblay, senior director of IT at CLEAResult.
But while CLEAResult helps its clients become more energy efficient, a few years ago it struggled with some inefficiencies of its own.
“We were supporting our core business operations on 17 separate systems, living a different life than the one we were providing for our clients. That was a big catalyst for us. We realized that we needed to make a change,” says Tremblay.
To address these challenges and increase efficiencies for its more than 2,500 employees across the United States and Canada, Tremblay led the sourcing and selection of Workday as CLEAResult’s single system for finance, HR, planning, and professional services automation (PSA).
We had a chance to talk with Tremblay about the benefits of having all of these capabilities in one system. Below are a few highlights from our conversation.
