On 04th July 2014 RUMM will launch a new version of software “IBASS 5” to an invited audience.
Our completely upgraded software has been designed to be “best in class” in the energy management software arena and will be presented for evaluation to an audience of valued or potential customers and strategic channel partners.
Our software has been designed by our own energy account managers based upon what functionality many of our customers need to manage energy cost and consumption. The IBASS 5 offering will have features new to us (some new to the sector) such as mobile device and forecasting. A public event featuring IBASS5, more RUMM technology and its Low Carbon Behaviour methodology will be held in September, more details will follow……..
Energy Saving Methodology Endorsed by Global Chemicals Company
AGCE Chemicals based in Blackpool is one of RUMM’s larger energy consuming customers with an annual utility bill in excess of £3m. Stuart Ede is the Safety, Health and Environment Manager and the Energy Champion at the manufacturing site which has secured a number of energy and environmental awards for the excellent work that they have done.
Stuart values the approach that RUMM has taken working in partnership with AGCE to provide the resources to enable the company to make more informed energy related decisions and secure significant savings. In turn we recognise that the stronger the partnership between RUMM and the customer, the greater the savings potential and that AGCE have and continue to be an excellent partner.
RUMM are delighted to have entered a formal partnering arrangement with the Carbon and Energy Fund (carbonandenergyfund.net).
The Carbon and Energy Fund (CEF) is a £300M+ fund that was originally established to fund and support projects in the NHS in England. However, such has been the success of its approach (it has helped structure energy saving projects in more than 50 Hospitals) that it is expanding its operation to the Public Sector and taking in Wales and Scotland as well.
RUMM are delighted to be involved. The innovative funding model devised and implemented by CEF looks certain to gain more traction in the Public Sector where capital funding appears to be difficult to secure for the foreseeable future yet carbon reduction targets remain.
RUMM believes the CEF model is well placed to provide a solution to this conundrum and we hope we are in a position to help in the delivery of this.
RUMM’s sales director Jamie Watkins is set to run the London Marathon on 13th April this year.
Jamie’s best friend was suddenly hit with blood cancer 4 years ago and was in ICU for 4 weeks, desperately ill and fighting for his life.
He had a long hard battle to recover which he eventually won, thanks to the Anthony Nolan Trust.
Jamie will be running for the Anthony Nolan trust this year which had a huge impact on saving his friends life.
Anthony Nolan is a pioneering charity that saves the lives of people with blood cancer. Every day, they use their register to match remarkable donors willing to donate their blood stem cells to people who desperately need lifesaving transplants.
This is a huge achievement for Jamie, he has been training extremely hard over the last few months, morning, noon, night and in all weather conditions. He has also had to face some tough personal and family issues along the way, but this has not deterred him.
For more on Jamie’s story, please visit Jamie’s just giving page athttp://www.justgiving.com/Jamie-London2014
Cancer will have an impact on all of us at some point during our lives whether it is us, family or friends.
We are asking if you can please show your support in beating cancer and donating as much as you possibly can.
The RUMM team would like to congratulate Jamie on his dedication and commitment to this race and we would like him to know that we are extremely proud of him.
We all wish you well for the big day Jamie and as they say….break a leg, we know you are going to “smash it”!!
Celtic Manor Resort – and so our first customer becomes out latest customer
In 2005, when RUMM was formed as a University spinout company, the Celtic Manor became RUMM’s first customer, and now in January 2014 our partnership has been re-established to work together to help reduce the Resort’s carbon footprint and associated running costs. We are delighted to be able to apply our energy saving technology to such a high profile venue and are confident that we can add to the significant savings that have already been achieved. The Celtic Manor Resort has enjoyed significant growth and is a renowned global brand and venue particularly since hosting the 2010 Ryder Cup. Later this year the 2014 NATO Conference will take place at the Celtic Manor, and there are plans to expand the facilities to include more luxury style lodges together with a significant conference venue.
RUMM will design and install the most appropriate energy meters with its own data collection product PULSE to gather and store the “Energy Knowledge”, to be interrogated by our own propriety software IBASS (Internet Based Analytical Software Suite) that provides the “Energy Imagination” for our Energy Account Managers to deliver significant savings.
When the Celtic Manor Resort became our first customer, energy prices were less than half of what they are now. As Celtic Manor expands as a business our task will be to work with them to continually reduce the impact of future price rises through reducing consumption.
