Digitising the data reporting process:

We have developed automatic invoice reading capability to transfer data directly from the invoice into C3Online. Data files from metering suppliers can also be transferred into C3Online. This technology eliminates the need for laborious data capture processes and avoids the most common mistake we observe during our audits – transcription errors. Importantly it creates one system for all your reporting and establishes a fully auditable and traceable reporting structure.

C3Online can track all of your sustainability metrics. Common metrics used by our clients include:

  • Emissions and energy use (both absolute and benchmarked)
  • Renewable Power Generated
