How WatchWire Helps Extreme Networks Improve Data Quality and Sustainability Reporting
About Extreme Networks
Extreme Networks is a global leader in cloud-based networking. The company pushes the boundaries of technology leveraging the powers of machine learning, artificial intelligence, analytics, and automation to provide new ways for customers to drive better outcomes.
Extreme Networks’ Sustainability and CSR Goals
Extreme strives to lessen its impact on the planet and become a better corporate citizen. The company’s full list of goals are highlighted in their 2021 corporate social responsibility (CSR) report and include:
- Reducing real estate portfolio and related GHG emissions by 25% by 2023
- Ensuring 95% of their product packaging is recyclable by 2023
Other goals not listed in the CSR report include auditing of their energy data to ensure accuracy and opening new international offices.
Why Extreme Networks Turned to WatchWire
Last year, Extreme Networks’ board discussed using an integrated sustainability and energy management platform to:
- Track and centralize energy and sustainability data in one place for sustainability reporting needs
- Identify additional areas for improvement while ensuring data integrity
As a global company, finding a solution that supported international currency and measurements was also important. As Extreme Networks continued to grow, the manual methods to track and validate data were not scalable and required automation. After evaluation of various solutions, Extreme Networks chose WatchWire as their solution for utility bill management and sustainability reporting in 2021. Beyond reporting, Extreme Networks will also leverage WatchWire to measure and verify conservation measures, track renewables, and assist with forecasting.
How WatchWire Has Helped Extreme Networks
Since implementing WatchWire, Extreme Networks has seen three main positive impacts:
- Improved social governance, sustainability reporting, and goal tracking
- Improved data quality and data all in one place, rather than across several spreadsheets
- Visualization/trending of data and easy to digest analytics
Brian Larson, the Facilities Manager for Extreme Networks, manages the company’s data and has seen marked benefits from using WatchWire. He appreciates that the user interface is easy, flexible, and customizable and notes that the platform has been great with APIs and integrations. “It has all been very positive,” Larson said. “WatchWire is really easy and simple to use, [and] I’ve been a happy customer because of the ease of use. It is a lot like Microsoft Suite in that there’s multiple ways to do the same thing. I am just happy to have all my data in one place where it is easy to find and locate.”
WatchWire’s CEO, Andy Anderson, states “We are happy to be working with Extreme Networks on their sustainability and emissions reduction journey. The great thing about WatchWire is that it can assist companies at all stages of that journey, whether they have been working towards sustainability for years or are just starting to analyze and report on their data. We are excited to be a part of Extreme Networks’ efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions as they grow into a leader in their industry.”
