ORLANDO, Fla. — Workiva, provider of a cloud-based and mobile-enabled platform for enterprises to compile, report, and analyze critical business data, has announced a strategic partnership with Urjanet, a provider of automated energy data. Workiva said this partnership will allow customers who use its Wdesk product platform to directly tap into Urjanet’s energy data, collected from more than 1,000 utilities.

“Embedding Urjanet data in Wdesk will allow our customers to streamline the collection and management of utility data inside Wdesk’s single-source, linked platform,” said Matt Rizai, Workiva chief executive officer. With Wdesk, users will be able to integrate and control all of their energy data, regardless of format or location. Live-linking technology keeps the data constantly updated, which helps companies monitor performance, reduce utility costs, and minimize carbon footprint.

“Wdesk gives executives the power to make energy-use decisions based on real-time data and helps the sustainability office bring more value to the CFO,” added Rizai.

“As sustainability becomes an integral component of organizations’ business strategies, the demand for automated, high-quality energy data is increasing across many departments, including accounting, finance, procurement, operations, and sustainability,” said Sanjoy Malik, Urjanet chief executive officer. Urjanet collects, organizes, and delivers energy data in an easily consumable package.

“Good data is the foundation of all sustainability initiatives, and Urjanet is excited to partner with Workiva to deliver the big energy data their customers need to make smarter, more profitable, and eco-friendly energy decisions,” said Malik.
