Case Study – National Grid
National Grid tasked us with identifying a short list of suitable Greenhouse Gas (GHG) software solutions to fit their existing and future requirements; like many other global organisations they needed to combine their current range of systems and processes into a single software solution with robust reporting capabilities.
Whilst the overall objective was clear, we worked with National Grid in defining an agreed configuration for collating information from across their global business units and geographies. Possibilities for integrating their existing systems and processes into a single solution or selecting a new vendor were explored, culminating in a short list and then finally a new software selection.
SustainIt were able to help National Grid develop a clear set of functional requirements against which they could select a new GHG system. Fast implementation of a pilot CSR system gave National Grid functional reporting and data gathering immediately and provided functionality for KPI’s, users profiles, reports and historic data. The pilot system also de-risked the specification of the new GHG system; providing build methodology and data requirements for the full setup and implementation, thereby reducing risk and saving significant time, resources as well as minimising expenditure
The initial creation of a clearly documented, complex topography of the data owners, data sources and breadth of data as well as IT systems already in use within National Grid resulted in an accelerated implementation of the new GHG system and additional cost savings.
