Reading-based energy efficiency specialist, Anesco, has opted for the full suite of Causeway’s Vixen software solutions for M&E contractors.

Anesco has also added Causeway Document Management software to help control operations. Formed in November 2010 by former Scottish & Southern Energy (SSE) Group Managing Director Adrian Pike, Anesco offers a full range of energy efficiency and microgeneration services to domestic and commercial customers, including solar power, renewable heating, insulation, and building energy management systems, as well as energy efficiency consultation. Backed by a £6 million equity investment from clean technology investor Zouk and SSE, the company is on track to reach an impressive £26 million turnover in its first year. Anesco has turned to Vixen software to help drive the business forward. “One of the first things we did when we set up the company was to bring the Vixen software in. We purchased the full Vixen suite and the company hosts it for us as well,” says Anesco CEO Adrian Pike.

“We invested in Causeway’s Vixen software when we set up Southern Electric Contracting back in 1992 and we were the biggest user of the software. I’ve always thought it was a brilliant system. Vixen’s real-time job costing facility is pretty much unique in the construction field and it’s what you need if you are running a business.
I can hit a button and look at what we spent today; I can look at what is our profitability, what our margins are. It gives me total control in a really flexible way.”

As well as the Vixen suite, Anesco is using Causeway Document Management software, providing a single repository for storing and organising electronic documents. It allows the company to manage and control documents, with access control, audit trails, workflows for automating document change request, review and approval processes and indexing and search capabilities.
