PowerAdvocate leads the energy data industry by providing energy companies with clarity into their complex data. Our Energy FactBase, currently at $4+ trillion and growing, helps customers to create operational and financial excellence. We help our clients to understand how they can leverage our unique view of the marketplace to reduce costs and manage operation risk working with executives on the cutting edge in the power, oil and gas, and renewable energy sectors.
We develop applied Machine Learning solutions with the goal of scaling and automating the classification of millions of records of our clients’ supply chain data. For ten years, we have been classifying our clients’ purchasing transactions into our industry-specific categorization schema. This gives us an inordinate amount of training data – millions of rows of classified transactions representing over $4+ trillion of spend. That’s not a typo – four trillion dollars! Our efforts are focused on deploying fully-integrated Machine Learning algorithms to assist our industry experts in leveraging their knowledge at greater scale and efficiency. We have a fertile ground of training data, a can-do entrepreneurial spirit and appreciation for robust and effective analytics approaches to delivering value. We are proud to be a part of the Verisk family of companies!
At the heart of what we do is help clients manage risk. Verisk (Nasdaq: VRSK) provides data and insights to our customers in insurance, energy and the financial services markets so they can make faster and more informed decisions.
Our global team uses AI, machine learning, automation, and other emerging technologies to collect and analyze billions of records. We provide advanced decision-support to prevent credit, lending, and cyber risks. In addition, we monitor and advise companies on complex global matters such as climate change, catastrophes, and geopolitical issues.
But why we do our work is what sets us apart. It stems from a commitment to making the world better, safer and stronger.
It’s the reason Verisk is part of the UN Global Compact sustainability initiative. It’s why we made a commitment to balancing 100 percent of our carbon emissions. It’s the aim of our “returnship” program for experienced professionals rejoining the workforce after time away. And, it’s what drives our annual Innovation Day, where we identify our next first-to-market innovations to solve our customers’ problems.
At its core, Verisk uses data to minimize risk and maximize value. But far bigger, is why we do what we do.
At Verisk you can build an exciting career with meaningful work; create positive and lasting impact on business; and find the support, coaching, and training you need to advance your career. We’ve been recognized by Forbes as a World’s Best Employer and a Best Employer for Women, testaments to our culture of engagement and the value we place on an inclusive and diverse workforce.
