EFT Control Systems, established since 1998, EFT was at the time of the Simple.ie Green BES Fund investment a small software company for 10 years. Although they provided their software under white label to ESB Independent Energy the company had little expertise or resource in sales and marketing and had not sold outside of Ireland. Since the investment, the company has expanded it management team and sales team, has developed UK distributors and has received investment from a very significant US investor. The company now has a pilot installation in the New York Times building and has recently received a significant order from the US Department of Energy for its energy monitoring software. Early feedback indicates that this little company has technology far ahead of some of its competitor giants such as Honeywell, Schneider and General Electric.
