Clevest Wins Clean Tech Category at BC Export Awards
Clevest has won the 2019 BC Export Award for Clean Technology. The award is presented to a BC company that exports technology that lowers costs while reducing environmental footprints, and makes more efficient use of natural resources. The award was presented to Clevest President and CEO Thomas Ligocki by a representative from Export Development Canada.
The BC Export Awards pay tribute to the success and innovative approaches of BC export companies. The awards program annually seeks out top exporters and honors them for their achievements in nine categories. The awards are presented by Business in Vancouver, the Ministry of Jobs, Trade and Technology, and the BC Division of Canadian Manufacturers & Exporters.
By implementing a Clevest workforce automation solution to fundamentally improve the efficiency and effectiveness of field operations, utilities eliminate paper and paper-based processes, reduce fuel consumption and vehicle emissions, and lower the consumption of water, electric, and gas resources.
“We are very proud to be recognized for our clean tech solutions, and to be part of the great tech community in BC,” stated Ligocki. “Our innovative solutions are helping utilities worldwide reduce the environmental impact of traditional field operations by promoting the efficient delivery of electricity, gas and water resources by utility companies and – in doing so – the efficient use of these resources by consumers.”
To date, 230 utilities have selected Clevest to manage their field workers, crews and contractors. Combined, the Clevest solution serves 100M+ consumers through 12,000+ mobile workers and 1,200+ dispatchers.
