Two years ago, a GLYNT customer sent us thousands of scanned utility bills. It was as if someone had been standing at a scanner for hours, putting stacks of bills through the machine. And accuracy rates were low. But today the situation is entirely different, bad scans are no problem!
Recent research from Rewiring America shows that more than 40% of our emissions come from our homes. For people to take direct action, each household needs a good understanding of their utility bill data. GLYNT has the tools to capture this key data and turn it into the easy-to-use format you need.
The Pew Center issued a key report on verified emissions 20 years ago. The need and challenges remain the same. What’s different is technology. GLYNT solves this problem.
A recent headline from MIT Technology Review grabs our attention: “Hundreds of AI tools have been built to catch covid. None of them helped.” The article summarizes the findings of studies that reviewed hundreds of AI tools intended to help with Covid: Diagnose patients; predict how sick they would get; triage resources and more.
Wikipedia defines an Edge Case as “a problem or situation that occurs only at an extreme (maximum or minimum) operating parameter.” In the world of Scope 2 emissions and utility bills, the phrase “Edge Case” has come to mean a data wrinkle that just makes you scratch your head.
For years the hope has been to make the capture of bills posted to websites, sent as paper mailings or PDFs easy–so easy that you can simply take a photo of the bills with your phone. Now it’s a reality.
GLYNT is pleased to introduce our new VP of Engineering, Kyle Forbes. A software engineer by background, Kyle spent the past decade leading various teams at PayPal, and now he’s ready to join the documents-to-data movement with GLYNT. Get to know him through our interview.
An image – or in this case a spreadsheet – can be worth 1000 words. GLYNT produces Scope 2 emissions data in a simple spreadsheet format. Transparent. Accessible. Ready to Use.
In the old days, IT made decisions for the entire corporation. Then we had “citizen developers” who tried out software and snuck it into the enterprise. Today we have a third wave, led by a generation who has been downloading apps on their phone for years.
Here at GLYNT we thought we might have a B2D business model too. But after studying the documents-to-data problem closely and working through deployment issues with our customers, we’re strongly in the standard B2B business model camp.
