Macedon Experience & Expertise

Energy and utility companies are facing challenges with the management of their facilities, including plants and refineries, because of legacy processes, risk, and change management. Although the tenured workforce is reluctant to embrace new technologies, those entering the workforce are looking at technology to drive change and efficiency while eliminating risk related to how work is accomplished.

 

Everything in the energy and utilities industry is process driven, so companies need a way to control maintenance costs by documenting and auditing daily operational procedures that sometimes shut down production.

 

At Macedon Technologies, we build systems that bring together technology, people, and processes. We help energy and utility companies simplify processes and meet industry standards through procedure-based solutions that support automation, reporting, and integration. Our solutions for energy and utilities companies enable them to leverage the asset-related data that is needed to make operational decisions.
