Clevest CEO selected as a Finalist for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year 2019 – Environmental Products Award

Clevest, a leading provider of mobile workforce automation software for energy and water utilities, announced today that CEO Thomas Ligocki was selected as a finalist for the EY Entrepreneur of the Year® 2019 Pacific awards in the Environmental Products and Services category. This follows his recognition as a finalist for Person of the Year at the 2019 Technology Impact Awards.

“It is an honour to be selected as a finalist for this award,” stated Thomas Ligocki. “The Clevest team has continued our fast and successful expansion into large utilities and global markets, and I couldn’t be more proud to share this recognition with them.”

Ligocki continued, “Extending our clean tech software to these utilities has significant results as we help reduce the environmental impact of traditional field operations. By improving the efficiency and effectiveness of their field operations, utilities eliminate paper and paper-based processes, reduce fuel consumption and vehicle emissions, and lower the consumption of energy resources.”

As an example, by implementing a Clevest solution a mid-sized utility company with 250,000 meters can expect to eliminate an average of 1.8M pages of paper per month, and to reduce fuel consumption by approximately 23% (or 19,550 gallons/74,000 liters per month).

To date, 230 utilities and deployment vendors have selected Clevest to manage their field workers, crews and contractors. Combined, the Clevest solution has deployed 35M+ AMI meters, and serves 100M+ consumers through 12,000+ mobile workers and 1,200+ dispatchers.
