THE BRIEF / CHALLENGES
Enerace is a company founded by Bartosz Palusiński and Wojciech Nowotnik, two experts on energy procurement. Over the last 11 years, they’ve helped dozens of big businesses all over Europe save millions of Euros on energy and fuel. Their mission is to educate companies and help them make the best decisions in terms of energy purchases. They assisted enterprises such as IKEA, Jeronimo Martins, and NGK Ceramics.
Turning consulting into SaaS
When we first met three years ago, Bartosz and Wojciech already had many clients, but they knew there was an enormous scaling potential, given a proper software solution. Their day-to-day work included gathering data, preparing Excel spreadsheets, talking to clients, and making reports and predictions. There was plenty of room for automation, and they knew that very well, so they came prepared with a detailed list of features. The idea was, in essence, to create a user-friendly Software as a Service (SaaS) platform that makes consulting a hands-off process.
The biggest challenge in projects like this is knowledge transfer. As a consulting company, the most significant value of Enerace was the experience and market expertise. And the amount of factors that affect that particular market is so mind-boggling that not even all energy sellers understand them.
