At the Fluix Productivity Meetup in Berlin, Jen Butler spoke with Alberto Dabusti, Energy Engineer at Apleona, about how the future of the Energy industry is definitely digital.
Jen: Hi, Alberto! Fluix, on average, gives you back about five hours in your day. What would you do if you had an extra five hours?
Alberto: I would like to spend more time outside in nature, but since you are speaking about business, I would probably focus much more on analytics, trying to get some insights from the data that we have.
Jen: And what’s your favorite thing about your job?
Alberto: I like to solve problems. I’m facing different new challenges on a weekly basis. The best part of my job is trying to solve problems as a team, together with other people. And when the outcome is an excellent, efficient solution for the customers…that is the best.
Jen: Would you say that working and collaborating with other people is part of what you like most about your role?
Alberto: Yeah, definitely. I like to share ideas and create common solutions.
Jen: What about the most frustrating thing about your job, or a challenge you face in your job?
Alberto: We are facing some challenges in collecting data and waiting for data in general. That can be frustrating because it’s holding projects back. Therefore, we are looking forward to working in a more digital environment.
Jen: Would that be a challenge in your industry in general?
Alberto: Probably, the digitalization could be one. We make a step forward because the industry is relying on paper-based documentation, for example, paper invoices; everyone working in the Energy industry still has invoices on paper. And yes, we are looking forward to digital invoices to process data as quickly as possible.
Jen: What would you say the future of your industry looks like?
Alberto: It is a digital future. It’s a platform economy. Customers are asking for a platform as a point of contact where they get all the services from one place. So, most of our competitors are trying to create a platform to give to customers the experience that you provide in Fluix.
Jen: Finally, what will be your key takeaways from our meetup here in Berlin today?
Alberto: The stories and experiences we shared.
