Addressing Inefficiencies and Data Inconsistencies

The company significantly increased its capabilities for data-driven decision-making by addressing insufficient data accuracies. Many administrative routines without added value have been eliminated. 

VSB's project development historically involved disparate databases, manual data entries, and cleaning, as well as extensive Excel use, leading to inefficiencies and data inconsistencies.  

The goal was to transform this landscape into a unified, automated, and error-resistant platform.

An ambitious goal to redefine project development in the energy sector brought about a partnership between VSB and Xebia. The VSB Cloud project was developed to help the client address inefficiencies, data inconsistencies, and other issues they were experiencing related to project development processes. 

The VSB Cloud project marks a monumental shift from traditional, manual processes to a streamlined, data-driven approach. 

The collaboration with Xebia has seen us swiftly gain actionable results that directly advance our mission to build renewable energy assets even faster and more efficiently. By utilizing Microsoft technologies, we place innovation at the center of our development endeavors, which underscores our commitment to be at the forefront of the industry and create a cleaner and greener world – fast!”
