Who we are

Since founding Boxbrite in 2003, Leon Kehl has developed software solutions across industries, including research, insurance, medical systems, banking and the energy sector.

For the last decade, our solutions have focused on serving the green energy industry. We’ve applied our decades of diverse experience as we’ve developed solutions that use advanced analytics and active monitoring processes to ensure solar energy systems perform at peak efficiency for years. You are part of this transformation in renewable energy. 

You’ve done the right thing, for the planet and for our climate. We protect this investment with active monitoring solutions that combine automated fault detection, and schedule manual inspection to coordinate with your operation and maintenance activities.

People

While solutions using software is our wheelhouse, people are always the first step. We invest time and resources to ensure a good fit right from the first conversation. We view the future through a lens of sustainability for the earth, and long-term partnerships based on trust and mutual benefit. We thrive on trusted relationships with our partners, and with our highly skilled employees.

Processes

You’ve got a problem with your green energy system. Maybe it’s inefficient, or glitching. You’re losing money. You need help.

That’s where we come in. First, we ask questions to help us understand your existing processes and challenges. Then we see how we can develop our solutions to fit with your unique situation, rather than giving you a cookie-cutter solution and leaving the problem for you to solve.

Projects

We develop software solutions for the renewable energy industry, often semi-customized, based on our core software technology. Working with multiple clients allows us to achieve efficiencies for our clients and expand our capabilities, and we approach each engagement as a trusted internal IT department might.

Our core technology integrates information, workflow and processes, delivering actionable decisions to:

  • Better visualize your data;
  • Provide trained monitoring resources to work with you to keep systems working at peak efficiency;
  • Detect and fix problems you might not notice, and using algorithms to reduce the noise and volume of alerts;
  • Achieve better tracking of your workflow, from detecting problems to resolving them;
  • Ability to precisely measure the costs and efficiencies of faults and processes;
  • Assist with operations and monitoring, to ensure peak energy generation and performance;
  • Your data is monitored by real humans trained to detect faults.

Trusted relationships are at the core of our business.

Our Values

There are a few things you should know about us, things that are central to the way we do business:

  1. Integrity is crucial. We are transparent. The lines of communication are always open. If we’ve said we’d do it, consider it done. You can count on us.
  2. We care about the planet, and strive to live justly and equitably with those who live on it. That means we’ll be stewards of your investment, and we’ll never take advantage of you.
  3. Success is measured not in dollar signs, but in smiles. If we’ve done our work well, our partners are delighted to continue the relationship, and our employees find meaning in their work.

So, when a customer talks about the great job we’ve done for them, and how much they appreciate us that puts a big smile on our face. 

When we do a demonstration for a potential customer, and we knock it out of the park, we get butterflies.

When an employee, a newcomer to Canada, buys their first house, achieves a goal, or accomplishes something that might not have happened if they hadn’t worked for us, well, you can imagine that makes our day.

When an employee thanks us for the opportunity to work with us, at that moment, you know this is more than a job for them!

Trusted relationships are at the core of our business.
