Technology Leadership

From the very beginning NorthWrite has lived with our corporate philosophy of "how simple can you get".  We take complex processes and create easy to use software applications leveraging the power of the Internet.

NorthWrite delivers its software and service using a web-based platform called the WorkSite.   Consider the WorkSite your one-window access to software applications, information, knowledge, and services to insure that your facility runs efficiently and at the lowest possible cost.  NorthWrite is a  Microsoft development partner and our determination and passion for new technologies allows us to bring you the building industry's most advanced energy and facility solutions. 

When you start to use technology as powerful as the WorkSite you will quickly see the strategic advantage your organization will have.  Simplicity is the key.  With our vision to create and deliver fully integrated software applications you will have all the technology at your fingertips to get the job done quickly, leaving you time to focus on your core business.  


We see our role as that of a crucial partner in the development plans of our larger clients, and have developed a comprehensive set of services to support enterprise customers at each stage of their project roadmap.  This includes detailed technical reviews at evaluation stage, customer enterprise pricing at the procurement stage, specialized consulting and training services at the deployment stage, and ongoing support services.


Industry Acclaim

NorthWrite products and services have been recognized year after year with a number of key industry awards. 

In 2008, NorthWrite and Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL) received the Federal Laboratory Consortium 2008 Award for Excellence in Technology Transfer.  This coveted award recognizes outstanding achievement in transferring federally developed technology to the marketplace.  A panel of experts from industry, state and local government, academia, and the Federal Laboratories judge the nominations.

In 2004, NorthWrite was awarded the Chief's Merit Award by the City of Minneapolis.  The award recognized the city-wide deployment of the WorkSite platform to police, fire, homeland security, and building owners to improve communications and collaboration.  Other cities across the USA have leveraged the platform with NorthWrite solutions in place in over 20 major metropolitan areas.
