Linking the Built World to the Connected World

Data Layer: Coupled with Applications
App Layer: Asset Management

Backpack is a comprehensive solution designed to digitize the built world. By collecting data from documents, integrations, surveys, and annual site visits, Backpack aggregates and centralizes building information, ranging from property characteristics, leasing data, utilities, equipment, real-time data, capital plans, and more. This digital foundation powers built-in tools like automated Energy Star scoring and compliance tracking, while providing the insights needed to effectively run decarbonization programs, prioritize capital projects, lower insurance premiums, and enable Backpack’s Marketplace of products and services to offer cash-back rewards.

Company bio

Backpack was born out of an acquisition of Bractlet in 2021, a software company that developed the industry’s most advanced energy analytics and modeling technology. Motivated by the philosophy that accurate data is the key for driving change, their team is focused on arming the built world with comprehensive, verified, and accessible property data – transitioning the industry away from the days when data sits siloed onsite, scattered across various spreadsheets, leaving you with more questions than answers.

With digitized and up-to-date information, Backpack is empowering stakeholders to leverage robust information to implement sustainability initiatives, provide intelligence for better planning, effectively track results, and tap into opportunities that increase profit.
