Solar software in 2023

Solar software is growing in 2023

Solar businesses are recognizing the value of software solutions in driving growth and efficiency in their operations. They are increasingly aware of the benefits that software can offer in streamlining processes, optimizing project management, and improving customer relationship management. As the industry becomes more competitive, solar businesses are actively adopting software solutions to stay ahead, enhance their capabilities, and unlock new avenues for growth. Given all the different solar software applications, we have written a guide about the different solar software categories.

Categories of solar software

  • ERPs and asset management software: to effectively manage and optimize your material, resources, and financial operations
  • CRM (Customer Relationship Management) software: to track leads, manage sales pipelines, and nurture customer relationships
  • Solar design and quoting software: to design solar systems and generate accurate quotes and proposals
  • Project management and collaboration software: to plan, manage, and execute solar projects while facilitating collaboration with internal and external stakeholders
  • Billing and invoicing software: to streamline the billing and invoicing process for your solar businesses
  • Remote monitoring and performance management software: to monitor your solar systems in real-time and do performance analysis including proactive maintenance
