CloudApps Unwraps Sustainability Suite With Winter '11 Launch

Driving Sustainability Across the Enterprise, Engaging Every Employee as Cloud Computing Leaders Converge at Dreamforce 2010

SAN FRANCISCO, CALIFORNIA--(Marketwire - Dec. 7, 2010) - Dreamforce 2010 - CloudApps, already an enterprise application leader in the management of carbon as a business asset, today announced the debut of innovative new functionality that enables organizations to rapidly embed sustainability across their entire business, helping to reduce cost and enhance brand value. The announcement was made at Dreamforce 2010, the cloud computing event of the year, where CloudApps is a silver sponsor.

The new CloudApps release, built on the low-energy, award-winning Force.com enterprise cloud computing platform, is CloudApp's fourth full technology release. Its solution has already been adopted by global brands such as waste management giant Veolia, semiconductor supplier ARM and fitness club leader LA Fitness.

The Winter '11 edition builds on the ability to monitor, disclose and reduce an organizations consumption of natural resources, including energy, transport, water and waste. Winter '11 debuts innovative new functionality that allows customers to rapidly align their entire organization behind stated sustainability goals and engage with every employee, enabling them to track their personal contribution, suggest new sustainability ideas and collaborate with others on sustainability initiatives. The new features include:

  1. Business Alignment – driving ownership across the organization, aligning business structures behind sustainability goals through budgets, targets and forecasts
  2. Employee Engagement – empowering every employee to "make a difference" by providing personalized sustainability information right to their desktop, including performance tracking and trending, sustainability suggestions, ideas submission and improvement program collaboration
  3. Community Engagement – harnessing the wisdom of customers, suppliers & partners to generate new ideas for sustainability initiatives
  4. Social Sustainability – bringing social networking style collaboration to sustainability initiatives, that drives employee involvement and success

"Our Winter '11 release signals an acceleration towards sustainability for CloudApps," said Simon Wheeldon, CEO, CloudApps. "We are reaching far beyond the management of carbon as a business asset and are now able to help organizations to manage their entire sustainability strategy, engender ownership across the business and engage with every single employee to accelerate sustainability success. While many others are slowly waking up to the new realities of limited energy and the continuing austere times, we have recognized that tomorrow's leading brands will use sustainability to reduce costs, distinguish themselves and gain competitive advantage."
