Azility wins 5-year contract with Wollongong City Council
Azility continues to revolutionise Energy Data Management and signs a five-year contract with Wollongong City Council.
When we welcomed Wollongong City Council at iAccelerate, the goal was to work with our residents to introduce innovation in the Council.
“It’s in our tagline and we want to show the community that it’s what we do,” Deanne Heidrich, Organisational Development Manager of Wollongong City Council, says.
Two years later and we are now seeing the benefits of this partnership not only for the council but for our residents and the community as well.
The partnership has provided the Council and our residents opportunities for growth and innovation. Their presence in the building has become an important source of information in terms of working with local governments; stripping time, cost and waste has maximised the benefits across the entire community.
Azility’s General Manager Rikki Papesch shares, “the insights that you get by having the team from the Wollongong City Council in terms of working with the local government is really beneficial. It cuts down a lot of time because you can just go to a more direct path.”
Azility’s pitch to the council in introducing Energy Data Management was one of the earliest proposals according to Deanne.
“Introducing utilities management in the council was a huge opportunity for everyone. With lots of tenacity and hard work, we signed the contract for Azility to manage our utilities”
Azility puts everything you need to revolutionise energy and water management across your sites at your fingertips, in one elegant platform.
“We were already in talks with the council for a while but having the team in the iAccelerate building made this possible. Having them here is really beneficial not only to us but also to other organisations in the building,” Matthew Cascio, Business Development Manager of Azility, says.
This recent win for Azility is a testament of the partnership that we have with the Wollongong City Council in creating a strong local business environment. A partnership that is built upon our residents’ quest for innovation and the Council’s policies to support and actively advocate for local businesses.
Looking into the future, Deanne is working with the team from Azility on another project for the Illawarra Shoalhaven Joint Organisation. The organisation will work Azility to implement a regional climate change strategy across its four councils.
Rikki Papesch encourages everyone to “…go talk to the guys. Tell them what you’re about. Tell them what you do and how you might fit in their program. You’ll get there.”
