NOVEMBER 21, 2013 (Philadelphia, PA) – StratIS EMS by BuLogics was named a winner at the inaugural Marcum Innovator of the Year Awards. This new annual program was presented by the Philadelphia office of Marcum LLP, a top national accounting and advisory firm, and Region’s Business magazine at the Franklin Institute.
The Marcum Innovator of the Year awards honor the contribution of innovation to the Philadelphia area economy and the companies behind the ingenuity. StratIS EMS won in the Energy category. In total, the program honored six Philadelphia area companies in four industry sectors.
StratIS EMS and BuLogics CEO Felicite Moorman accepted the award for her Teams. “My job entails two primary tasks; enabling the best engineers to do their best work, and telling the world that they do it. I thank Marcum for helping me with that second task tonight,” said Moorman. “More nights and weekends than I usually admit in their presence went in to this build, and I am as grateful to work with these Teams as for the recognition of this award.”
StratIS EMS is the most recent spinout of Philadelphia-based BuLogics, Inc. While their prior spinout, Zonoff, focused on residential automation, StratIS EMS was specifically built to answer the need for energy management systems in the Multi-Dwelling Unit (MDU) and Apartment Industry. StratIS EMS allows for simultaneous tenant and management control. Their first multi-control endeavor, as strategic partner in the Wynn Hotel and Casino Las Vegas implementation, necessitated the invention of the technology needed in the MDU space: rapid, non-specialized installation, out-of-the-box hardware, over-the-air upgradable software, and a return on investment in two years.
“Every one of our winners and every one of our nominees has followed in the path of great innovators,” said David H. Glusman, Partner-in-Charge of Marcum’s Philadelphia office. “The things you try don’t always work. In order to be innovative, you have to be willing to fail before you succeed and succeed big. That’s what these awards celebrate. Marcum congratulates StratIS EMS and all of the outstanding companies whose achievements made the inaugural Marcum Innovator of the Year Awards so incredibly difficult to judge.”
