Energy invoice processing and payment for multiple site entities is a voluminous, tedious, time-consuming and expensive task for commercial, government, industrial and institutional organizations. Ameresco has greatly simplified that process with the most advanced, international, multi-lingual, multiservice, multi-currency system available on the market. Ameresco AXIS® provides an unparalleled approach to energy bill services by seamlessly transferring energy invoice data and delivering analysis that helps our customers meet energy cost targets.

Accurate, Automated and Secure
Our advanced, patent-pending Optical Character Recognition (OCR) process allows the rapid capture of data on bills with one of the highest accuracy rates on the market. From there, Ameresco AXIS performs highly refined utility bill auditing with each invoice to ensure accuracy of data and optimize the timing of bill payment.

Once an energy invoice is received, regardless of format (physical mail, e-mail, electronic data exchange, Web download, fax, PDF or TIFF file), all processing is completed within 24 hours.

Deposit Management
Ameresco AXIS is SAS 70, Type II certified and can track all deposits in order to provide on-demand reporting of deposit amounts, dates and scheduled return dates. We will contact a service provider up to three times for return of deposits when they are due. If more aggressive methods are required, Ameresco can pursue deposits exceeding $1,000.00 at the discretion of the customer for a shared percentage of the recovery.

Location Account Assurance
Location Account Assurance provides clients with the certainty that all accounts and meters are correctly identified and billed during opening and closing of facilities. Ameresco works in cooperation with the client, service providers and necessary third parties to initiate or close service of electric, natural gas, water and sewer accounts.

SSAE Certification Ensures Compliance
Statement on Standards for Attestation Engagements (SSAE) 16 Type II certification is an industry standard developed by the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants (AICPA) that ensures compliance with recognized accounting standards for your organization.

The Type II certification for Ameresco AXIS was earned through independent evaluation of the service by an AICPA Service Auditor. It shows that the design and operation of Ameresco AXIS operate effectively and that the data gathered through the software may be used to prepare financial reports without additional auditing. This certification is another feature that saves money, because it eliminates the need for additional auditor review of expenses related to energy costs processed through Ameresco AXIS.
